I still dont fully understand the necessity of it but they said it was to check oxygen levels in her blood, but i totally agree that in this day and age there must be a simpler way. hope you feel better soon at least you are in high spirits  :pig: :o

Hello W.P. Not that I understand but I am very inquisitive should I need be.So Ian why are you groping about in my wrist and causing me strife ?When I go to see me GP he instructs his Dracula to extract some blood for to send to the path lab for various reasons She rolls up my sleeve and inserts a tiny needle into a vein and inserts s vacuumed phial and hey presto blood with no bother.Ah George but that is used blood from a vein I want some blood from an artery which is charged with oxygen being pumped by the heart around your body.I can then put it in a machine which will analyse the blood and tell me the oxygen % in the blood.Unfortunately yours is extremely low below 6 what ever that means hence your need to have addition oxygen for at least 16 hours a day.A technician is calling tomorrow with a machine that absorbs oxygen from the atmosphere and passes it up a pipe to a cannula inserted in my nose.Sounds like great fun I have to be connected to this unit at night when I go to bed as well hopefull this will give me 8 hours so I only need another 8 hours.A big snag I am not to use it within 6 feet of a naked flame and my cooker is gas,Ian thinks I should be alright taking it off in the kitchen and plus the end time loss by how long I was not connected ??? :o :( ;D :farmer:
Don't do today what can be put off until tomorrow because today will be yesterday tomorrow

I could be wrong...  but the arteries are deeper, ie further away from the skin.  so a bigger needle is needed.

all the best George
