I have Emphysema for 2 years now, its so nice to read your posts and to see how helpful and compassionate you all are with each other, myself, Ive always been a painfully shy and consequently unsociable person, not that i ever wanted to be, just the way i am i guess.
I'm 58 and live in Portsmouth Hants. so i am just finnaly jumping in and hope i don't make any mistakes as Ive not used a forum before. please let me know if i muck it up in any way thanks.
my question is does anyone here know if i can buy an oxymeter or something that will monitor the data overnight. my oxygen has dropped from 97-98 to 95-94 at rest and i keep waking with a start and my oxygen is 80-92. i saw my GP yesterday as i was in hospital with a racing pulse on Saturday it was going up and down rapidly from 97-147 for 3 hours but of course it had settled down a lot when the ambulance arrived which took 2 hours to get here, also my gp's readings were good too i have a ecg booked for 31st dec' i just want to prove to my gp whats happening to my oxygen through the night, sorry to introduce myself with such a long question, thank you all for your time who read this peace and light from sue_bun55
