  • Effectiveness
    Major (for pulmonary fibrosis)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: They increased Oxygen from 2-3 liter pulse flow to 4-5 liters continuous flow during exertion. The prescription change required changing to Liquid Oxygen. And that delivery system is worth the extra effort of filling tanks. Liquid O2 is more a convenient home delivery. They refill or swap out large cylinders when needed. Now instead of using my portable concentrator and their gas cylinders, I use 1 or 2 small units that each last 4.3 hours on 4 liters or 3.4 hours on 5 liters. I can order a 25 pound storage unit for my car if I need it. I will order it for my next delivery.
Cost: < $25 monthly
