oxygen at nite


Recommended Posts

For me it has been always about how I feel. I started on oxygen 24/7 back in July when the radiation pneumonitis hit me hard. Then after a month I was totally off oxygen and stayed that way for several months. In October I developed a particularly nasty cough and discovered that if I slept with oxygen, I coughed less at night and therefore slept better. I don't like sleeping with it because it dries my nose out so much, but when it helps, it helps.

Hi Calton;

Hope all is well, Regarding the ox, it was'nt that it was prescribed only at night for me, because I was told to use it any time I felt I needed it. But , It was suggested to use it at night because the body breaths differently while sleeping and uses / gets lets ox. In my case they removed my left lung and I was told to use the ox. at night because it would help allow the body to heal

makes alot of sense to me, hope this helps.

God bless
