I suffer from COPD and I'm on 2 L of oxygen. My wife and I want to travel but refiling O2 is a big problem. Could I get help with a portable O2 concentrator from the VA?
A1: Yes the VA provides portable O2 generators. You have to make an appointment with pulmonology and they will do an exam which includes the 6 minute walk test during which they will monitor your PulseOx. I'm not sure if your COPD has to be service connected or not. (DG) 5/24/19
A2: Go see your Primary Doctor. (PH) 5/24/19
A3: Who ever the VA has treating you with oxygen like a company called ROTECH if you going to travel you have to tell them 2 weeks a head of time and they will inform the VA to let you use a portable concentrator until you return from your trip. (ED) 5/24/19
