Hi. My mum has just been diagnosed with COPD and is on oxygen therapy 24 hours a day. The oxygen company have told her that she can't go in the kitchen at all as there is a as hob (electric oven). She was also told not to switch a kettle on. Even if she takes her oxygen off he said that there will be oxygen around her body for about 20 minutes. She feels totally constrained. Is there any way that she can switch a kettle on? Should we buy an induction hob? How do people manage? Is the oxygen company being overly cautious? Obviously she would not cook with a gas hob whilst using her oxygen but what can she do? Only microwave? Any advice would be gratefully received - she has had no practical help at all yet on how to live with this. Thanks very much.
