My mother has severe emphysema/copd and is suppose to be on oxygen 24/7, however, she goes around without her oxygen all the time and seems to be fine. The doctors tell me that she has lived for many years and her body has gotten use to the amount of oxygen she is taking in but the lack of oxygen is harming her. When they put that little device on her finger to measure the oxygen in her blood when she isn't wearing her oxygen she is only at 78 and the doctor said if that was him or me right now we would be very sick but her body has gotten use to this. Can someone offer some advice on this because my mom thinks it is okay to walk around without her oxygen and only thinks she needs it if she gets dizzy. She does use her oxygen when she sleeps. Anyone with any personal experiences?
