Breathing on an airplane
I had asthma attack during the last flight that I took … a long 6 hour trip from the East Coast to the West Coast … I brought my pulse oximeter finger reader that would measure my oxygen. As we all know 95-100 is great … I am usually around 94-96 when feeling well.
The flight was long and my oxygen levels were between 86-90 and my pulse was racing along at 110+. My doctor later told me that my pulse was racing for most of the trip because my Oxygen levels were low.
I was reading that at 35,000+ planes are pressured to about 8,000 sea level. I have trouble over 6,000 on earth.
Question … do airlines allow portable oxygen concentrator machines on airplanes.
Does anyone use oxygen on flights?
Have you experienced a collapsed lung?
