I am new here. After struggling with COPD for years and several recent urgent medical emergencies I have been placed on oxygen 24/7 . I have 2 concentrators at home and the backup large tanks for travel to the doctor. I do not want to be confined to my house and hate dragging oxygen tubes through the house .I do not want to bring the tank in order to go to restaurants or friends' houses.
I now feel helpless and dependent and am trying to adjust and find out more about portable oxygen devices for travel and leisure events. We looked at one at a local medical supply company , but it weighed 20 lbs. with adapters and extra batteries. COPD already tires me , how could I lug around that kind of weight ? I need a lighter device with long battery life. does anyone have any suggestions for a the ideal device to suit my needs?
