COPD often causes air-trapping, and that can reduce the amount of O2 that you can take in from room air. If that's not sufficient, your 02 saturation will fall. When it gets below 88%, you need… read more

Good morning everyone.

I am in the process of having to learn as much as possible about my oxygen needs so I can find out what I can do for exercise and how long-term habit breathing is actually a huge part of my problem.
