When I was first put on home oxygen three years ago, it was terrible. Everyone kept tripping over it and pulling my ears when they did. I swore I wasn’t going to have ears left. My husband is not the easiest going person and he complained constantly. I didn’t know what to do. My husband put the concentrator in the hall. He put one 20 ft. oxygen hose to my bedroom running along the baseboards of the wall. He used a swivel for the 4 ft. cannula hose. Then he did another 20tf.hose that reached to the front of the house. It is not ideal, but it is so much better than it was trying to drag 50ft. of hose around so I could get to the entire house I just unhook the one and hook up the other when I need to.
