If you know the meaning of the terms COPD and LTOT, chances are you’re in the right place. If you’re familiar with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Long Term Oxygen Therapy, you or a loved one probably have seen major changes in your quality of life. The good news is that advancements have been made that have changed the way COPD and long term oxygen therapy has to affect you personally, whether you’re the recipient or a concerned loved one.
Pulmonary, as you may know, refers to “lungs,” just as in the term “CPR,” short for cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. When you have COPD, breathing can be a struggle throughout the day. You often feel tightness in your chest and like you just canâ€™t get enough oxygen when in fact your lungs are having difficulty releasing carbon dioxide.
However, it does quite a bit more than that. Many COPD sufferers require long term oxygen therapy that can seem like a sentence to a life tied to a ball and chain. All of a sudden, you’re tethered to a tank everywhere you go. If you require an oxygen therapy solution, you know that running out of oxygen can be a constant source of fear and concern.
