Difference Between Portable Ox Cylinders Amd Their Home Oxgyen Concentrater. I Get A Much Stronger Flow With The Bottles. I Dont Fe

I can do much more with a O2 cylinder then i can at home with my concentrator. With bottles I can go for walks and even shopping, but at home with the concentrator my O2 drops to 80's just walking to kitchen. My bottle I set on 5 liters and concentrator is set on 7 liters. The only time my concentrator seems to work for me is when it is hooked up to my Trilogy, amd of course I am always resting then. Anyone else notice a difference. They tested the machine and said it was fine??😵😵

Thin Purple Line In Fingernails

I have a thin purple line that is above the white half moon on ALL of my fingernails. It looks like the half moon is being outlined with this purple line. Does anyone else have this? Does anyone know if this a sign of a deficiency of some kind? It is not caused by a traum injury. Any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
