    People with COPD where there is a need oxygen is prescribed at the appropriate dose / literage.

    Chat with your doctor about your needs.

    I have never heard the term "activated oxygen therapy", however, I have been on oxygen from the day I was diagnosed 5 years ago.  I use it only during the night and sometimes if I take a nap in the afternoon.  It is a constant flow from a concentrator and I am at 3 ltrs.  If that is what you are talking about, I think it is the BEST thing my doctor has done for me....I feel GREAT 99% of the time.  I get breathless if I go above 11,000 feet but otherwise I don't really have any limitations.

      Thanks for your reply but Activated Oxygen devises are different from that from the doctor and have to be bought. You can Google them.

    I gave not heard the medical term 'Activated oxygen'. This decision to offer oxygen to you is entirely up to your Doctor or your respirologist specialist. I myself am on oxygen thereby, my tests being spirometry and the 6 minute walk test revealed I was border line. I only use it on excertion. I use it very little but I do use it when I am doing heavy housework.

      This is not the Oxygen therapy you get from your doctor, it is from an activated air device and has to be bought. I have read some rave reviews about it but wondered if anybody on this site had used it or heard of it. Thanks for your reply.
