    I have been on intermittent O2 for the last year, some times I don’t need it for as long as a week or two and then my 02 will drop to 70 and 80’s. I always use O2 at night. I have had several ct scans of lung, everything neg. They don’t have a clue what causes it. I also pass pulmonary function tests.

    Jack thats really interesting!!
    My father drops down to the 70 or 80’s super quick when he takes his nasal canular off.
    CT scans of lungs have been done. He has passed pulmonary function tests. There is no pneumonia.
    His sat levels just dont stay up.

    Hi Wendy, Have you tried reaching out to the drug company that produces your husband’s drugs…often they will give you a break on price.

    Good Luck,
