I just wanted to share this free download with those of you who work with O2 dependent patients. This book has some very useful information to help answer questions especially for the new O2 user and their health care provider. We always keep copies of this this book around for patients to read and have a whole box to give out if necessary. The book is intended to put oxygen users at ease. It also gives nurses information on the type of questions patients might have. There is another edition to this book that just came out as well.
Both books are easy readers and can be read quickly. Some of the patients like to have copies on their computers so they can enlarge the print.
"Adventures of an Oxy-Phile" http://www.drtompetty.org/Resources/...20Oxyphile.pdf
This book is also good. Besides part of his life's story it also describes the early days of respiratory services.
"From Both Ends of the Stethoscope" http://www.drtompetty.org/Resources/...tethoscope.pdf http://www.drtompetty.org/2074.aspx http://www.drtompetty.org/
This website is a great reference for home O2 users and health care professionals. It describes the equipment that patients often bring in with them or will be told about. It also gives good travel info for those using driving or flying. http://www.portableoxygen.org/
