Been a member on here for a while but I’m an ant social lol. I have had COPD for about 7yrs. I am on 2 inhalers plus tablets, get out of breathe very easily. Drives me mad but it is what it is.
It helped me. it made my billfold lighter.
I can do much more with a O2 cylinder then i can at home with my concentrator.

They tested the machine and said it was fine??😵😵
Thanks, never knew that, makes more sense now
