GLD’s Story

Having COPD, I’m on four on my oxygen concentrator and two at night. Have tried many different inhalers ending up in the donut hole. Now my doctor has me on two different medications using my nebulizer twice a day.

Just received my one prong cannula. It works just as well as the two prong cannulas. I no longer have the tubing running down the front of me. For women it’s great for looks. One side of my face is completely free of tubing. You can also switch nostrils.

    Thank you so much for sharing, GLD! I am so glad the new cannula is working well for you. And, as a woman, I can appreciate that the less prominent cannula must be nice! I hope your new medications work well for you. Thank you again for sharing a part of your story with the COPD.net community. We’re glad to have you here! Best, Erin, COPD.net Team Member.

    Hi GLD and thanks for sharing your experiences with the one-pronged cannula. I remember there was some discussion about the aesthetics of one-prong versus two-pronged cannulas on our COPD Facebook page. I don’t, however, remember if you were part of that conversation. Did you happen to see it?
    All the best,
