If You Say You Are On Oxygen 24/7, Does That Really Mean All Night And Day?
A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

I don’t understand when people say they are on oxygen 24/7, then talk about mowing the yard or working in the garden. I have to sleep with mine on, and wear all day. I have a portable one that I have to use just anytime I leave the house. I check my oximeter often and can leave it off taking a shower. It’s even hard to cook with the tubing!!

Sleep Apnea
A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been waking up lately gasping for air. My lung doctor has ordered a sleep test. My question is. Could COPD and oxygen 24/7 lead to sleep apnea? I am already retaining CO2. Just wondered what the possibilities could be. Thanks!
