I have a concentrator at home to fill my oxygen cylinders, I do not need oxygen when I'm sleeping or at rest during the day but as soon as I start moving I have to wear the cannula.
Dolby Vivisol supply my equipment and today I was just reading through one of their booklets, Your Home Oxygen Service and they advise not to use your oxygen for 30 mins. before cooking and whilst cooking (I cook on electric) as your clothes will be saturated with oxygen. Also, you should not use oxygen when in a petrol station and not when filling your car. I live on my own and could not manage for 30 mins. without my oxygen and I also drive which means I need petrol. Dolby say this is the advice they must give because it is a safety issue. If I die of starvation, I will not need the petrol anyway I suppose. Any thoughts?
