Hi, Firework, I was told my carbon dioxide levels were high when I first started using oxygen, a good few years ago now. My consultant said they would keep an eye on it but that my body seemed to somehow tolerate the higher level quite well. I continue to use oxygen 24/7. So far, so good.


Hi to I thankyou for that information it's made me feel better,I was worried about it take care and have a good dayx
