When Do You Need To Have Oxygen

When Do You Need To Have Oxygen

When I exert myself or walk from car to inside mall I get breathless. I stop take a minute to get my breath back. I find having a buggy to walk with really helps. I do find my legs get so tired easily. I’m so afraid of the need for oxygen 24/7. I know it’s the end game but I’m trying to hold off as long as possible. COPD members have said exercise and more exercise. This I must start.

Thank you. I’m in Fl so feel I must wait to I return to Canada end of April. I think that’s part of my stress.

Runny/Dry Nose & 24/7 Oxygen

Runny/Dry Nose & 24/7 Oxygen

My nose only tries to run from the top right corner but it's a constant. The inside however will be so dry it's painful and bleeding. Have humidifier to attach to concentrator as dr said maybe too dried out but when I hooked it up it almost drowned me and the company hasn't called me back to teach me how to attach even though I followed a video I found to show me since it was mailed to me with no instructions. Any solutions for the runny nose?
