My doctor prescribed an oxygen (portable) concentrator for me. My oxygen supplier did not have any to meet my requirements and neither did any other local suppliers. Through the help I got here, I found some companies online. I purchased one ,as the company does not accept any insurance. I like it very much and am able to stay out for longer periods of time because it recharges in the car as well...

I had been instructed to rinse my mouth after using my inhalers.  So I made sure that I brushed my teeth as well.  Now, I am learning that the worse thing you can do is brush your teeth after using your inhaler.  That one should rinse and try to keep a balanced ph level so you don't have tooth decay.

For people with asthma, the warmer weather can mean trouble. As the pollen count rises and mold spores increase, so do the chances of breathing problems.

Think about this: more than 4 in 10 people in the United States live in counties that have unhealthy levels of either ozone or particle pollution. Now think about this: in the time it took to read that, you probably took 4-5 breaths. Makes you want to know what was in that air, doesn't it?
