What Is Usually Someones Pulmonary Pressure To Have To Go On Oxygen ?

Anyone Using A PAP Machine (specifically A BPAP)

Anyone Using A PAP Machine (specifically A BPAP)

Any suggestions to help with swallowing air, how much assistance did you get when you started, and any machines that seem to work very well? I need to use it, but it's been rough with limited assistance (Dr. office booked solid and rental company is next to useless).

Has Anyone Experienced Nausea With PAH?

Has Anyone Experienced Nausea With PAH?

I find that I have a little bout of nausea after eating. I'm not on heavy duty meds so it can't be that. Is it related to PAH?

I don’t have nausea, but I have been getting indigestion quite often. I wake up at night and have to take tums.

Pulsoxometer For The Forehead:

Pulsoxometer For The Forehead:

Would anyone know of a medical supply company that you can order online .
I have Raynauds where my fingers turn white, and my circulation isnt great. To get an accurate Pulsox reading, I need to read it from my forehead. I know they are available, and some are expensive. Alot of places dont have them. I was wondering if anyone has the same issue as I do.
Its important that I do check my oxygen level.
Thanks,
Joan

Covid Affecting Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension:

Covid Affecting Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension:

Is anyone aware if Covid has affected your PH and made it worse?
I had Covid last July, and seemed to be worse after it.
I just tested positive last night, but virtually have no symptoms. The pharmacist said I probably have a mild case, and just rest, and take tylenol.
