Does Anyone Have Any Suggestions For Anxiety?
A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

I had my power go out last night, but just the flicker a couple of times kind, just to mess up your clocks, and my Inogen at-home concentrator shut down. I didn't even think about it for a long time and then realized it was too quiet. It was a little scary I didn't notice sooner. I would think there might be an alarm but there's not. Does anyone who has the bigger rental Invacare or other brands have an alarm for this?
