For the last 5 years, using machines and medical equipment through the day has become second nature. It’s hard to believe that there was once a time where I thought it was difficult to find time to measure my oxygen levels using a pulse ox.
Now, I have to find times in my day to use a ventilator machine for a few hours and when I feel short of breath, nebulizer treatments, blood pressure checks, pulse ox checks, and of course I always have to have my oxygen with me.
What medical equipment or machines do you use during the day? Do you find it difficult to plan out your day to fit all this in? What helps you with developing a self care routine if you have multiple machines and medical equipment to help you?
