JerseyRose Posted August 12, 2020 Share Posted August 12, 2020 Last week, my new Pulmonologist sent me home with Oximeter to wear overnight to record my oxygen level while I slept. Today I had to bring it back and do a 6 minute walk around the office with the Oximeter on again. When I was done, the nurse told me I was eligible for oxygen because my readings were 92 walking and went down a few times to 89 during the sleep test. I told this nurse that I felt fine and only become short of breath when I over exert myself and I left it at that. Just as soon as I got home, I got a call from a woman telling me she was from a company that would be delivering oxygen to my home She asked me a few questions about my insurance, address etc and when I inquired about the cost she said someone would be calling me back with that information . I never saw the doctor today and no one in the office explained anything to me about when and how to use the oxygen machine ( that I didn’t know I was getting). I found this really odd because I didn’t see any reason why I needed oxygen therapy in the first place. I guess I’ll have to call the doctors office tomorrow to find out what is going on because I sure wasn’t expecting any of this today.
