I think I understand the problems encountered with the use of oxygen in ALS. However, does anyone know about the if someone with ALS has pneumonia, can/should oxygen be used at these times (both while using bi-pap and while off of it)? Does anyone use oxygen along with their bi-pap even if they do not have pneumonia? Should the use of oxygen be based on oxygen saturation rates or avoided all together? Thanks for your feedback.
