NOTE: To view
Motoring With O2
as an online presentation by Dr Wilson
Note: This Introduction by Dr Wilson was originally designed for the download version, but applies to the online version s well.
This is a slide show
with audio and animation that describes how you
can have a good time traveling by not worrying about your oxygen. The
slide show describes how to prepare in advance and along the way as you
motor across the United States.
It describes the types of vehicles you might use and how to pack oxygen in any one of them for both convenience and safety. It offers options for using concentrators, compressed oxygen, and liquid oxygen while driving, sightseeing, and sleeping. Best of all, it provides you a snapshot of how four families with oxygen members travel.
This slide show is unlike any other you have seen on the Internet. This slide show is not in a tiny window. It takes up the entire screen. You can clearly see the text, images and photographs move on and off the screen, as the narrator tells the story about managing your oxygen while traveling.
There are very few things you have to do except sit back and watch and listen to the show. All you need to know is on this page. Please print a this page and continue reading it while the download is taking place.
