Before you buy an oxygen flow meter, there is something to learn about in advance: your breathing pattern can affect the final oxygen dose you receive from your flow meter.
Many patients receiving oxygen therapy aren’t fully aware that various breathing patterns have direct effects on how they set their oxygen flow meter.
Your physician prescribes oxygen at a specific dose, one that is appropriate for your condition. However, even though your doctor has prescribed a set liter flow for you (usually 1–3 liters per minute), many variables affect that liter flow. And some can lead to dramatic shifts in the amount of oxygen you are receiving.
How does this happen? The main problem affecting your therapeutic oxygen level is air dilution.

Of course, you'll need to talk to your doctor and do some of your research before making a serious decision about getting a service dog.

If you think you have COPD, we will discuss some of the early warning signs and how a physician would test for it.
