might help.

Have been using an oxygen concentrator (a really cool molecular filteration device) connected to the bi-pap machine for sleep for almot a year. It can also be used during the day.

I also have a walking pack with ~1100 minutes of O2 and several spare tanks.

The idea that I'm going to have to start using O2 full time bugs me bad. Hopefully, it's just a temporary situation caused by a mild respiratory infection.

It's a pain in the ass, I know Meer.
Beats the other options.
With the C-pap I'm sleeping well again.
I tolerate the Darth Vader Jokes now because I'm not crabby from not sleeping.

Sounds like you're using a full face mask. I started with one of those, but changed to what's called a "nose pillow," wich is just like a nasal cannula with a little chamber attached. I like it better than the full face mask.

Yup full face mask and I'm gonna hafta shave my beard off according to my doctor! Too much leakage. Just got a new mask so I'll have to wait a few months to switch to something else. These are really minor problems compared to not sleeping. Counting my blessings.
Hang in there Bro.

What's it sposed to be?

07-15-2006, 12:42 PM
O2 level should be 95 or higher. 90 is Ok. Under that.... :(

Did you give up smoking ---- a no answer will prompt me to fly to Seattle and beat the living feces out of you, so you won't neend an oxygen counter.

Scot me over that!!!!:)

Meerkat - that does not sound good.

On a technical point - what are the units for these numbers?

07-15-2006, 01:05 PM
I don't know exactly what the units are, but I guess it's % of total possible saturation.
