We are a locally owned and operated respiratory home care company dedicated to helping our patients breathe easier and sleep well.

Oxygen doesn’t have to set limits on mobility and the freedom to move. We’ve set out to provide the best portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) on the market and give patients the confidence that they’ll have a 24/7 oxygen supply while at home or away. POC’s are provided to all patients who qualify and are suited to use one. At InspiAIR, there is no “wait-list” to receive a portable oxygen concentrator.

We are locally owned, but we are also part of a growing network. Come join talented and like-minded people from across Ontario who care passionately about our clients and communities. Collaborate openly with peers to combine care for patients with improved quality of life through mobility. We value creativity and initiative as we work together to provide the best therapeutic support we can achieve. Best of all, we care for one another too. You can’t pour from an empty cup, and our caregivers are cared for by their peers and leaders alike.

Can you confidently initiate Home Oxygen therapy and other respiratory services such as CPAP, AUTO, Bi-PAP, as prescribed by local health care professionals?
