Oxygen

Hello all, just want to share a little bit of good news with you all. After being on oxygen at 3 litres ( I am told that is a high score) I went for an assessment at hospital yesterday and guess what...., my improvement is so good I no longer need oxygen. The company is taking all the equipment back on Monday.

Hello again, I think my improvement is mainly down to good diet (I do have a treat at weekends )

I do deep breathing exercises,trying to beat or match my previous oxymeter scores. But then I also own and use a machine I saw Dr Chris Steele talk about on the TV some time ago. Its called AIRNERGY,if you google it you will see it for yourself. I use it twice a day for twenty minutes,its breathing scientifically adjusted air through a canular .

Many COPD users have sent in testimonials for it and I intend doing just that.

As with most good things the machine is very expensive but after a family meeting we decided to go ahead. cant spend money once you are dead and if it gives me a better quality of life for a while then its worth it.

I do not work nor am I attached too this company in any way what so ever

good luck :-)

This is great news. I am curious about why you were receiving oxygen therapy. What were you diagnosed with, and how long had you been on home oxygen? The reason I ask is your post gives hope to people, myself included about possible getting off home oxygen.

Hello,I was on oxygen because the COPD nurse's put me on it after being tested.i HAVE COPD That's as much as I know,I was on it a few months.

there is always hope my friend always.

This is a fantastic story!

I see you were on 3lpm. How many hours did you have to use it? Were you on ambulatory oxygen?

Only three months is great. Were you put on it during an exacerbation perhaps? It took me 6 months on oxygen just to complete all the tests.

I am puzzled though. When my sats were low and I tried to increase them by deep breathing - my sats reading went down, not up! How strange am I?

I was told to use oxygen for 15/16 hours per day which for me was impossible. Yes I wonder if you are right ,I may well have been tested for it during an episode.....but all I kow for sure is It feels lovely not to have to use it right now.
