So an occasional dose of oxygen for SOB is no biggie and he wrote the script. It's been a Godsend. After all, wouldn't you rather use a little O2 than take a bunch of aspirin or some other pain killer?
I started off with a "B" cylinder, our smallest. Then a "C". That way I have to change the tank less often. Shawn gave me a different regulator so that if I fall asleep without shutting off the tank, as long as the cannula is out of my nose, the tank doesn't leak. I don't use it that often. In one and a half cycles I have used one "B" and one "C". So yesterday there were no "C" cylinders and I grabbed a "D".
The carpet in this room is very plus and the tank is top heavy because of the special regulator. So I called the office and told Rachael to "caucus with the warehouse staff" for a solution to it tipping over. When it tips over it's harder to reach when I am half asleep and it makes a big clunking sound.
And........Viola! That Mark...he's a smart guy coming up with this sophisticated solution!
Good thing too....I already make enough noise knocking down shelves in the middle of the night.
