Hello, Everyone!

I've posted in the PMA area up until now, but wanted to run this by a larger group of people. Are any of you in the California fire zones, or close by?

The reason I ask is that my dad's breathing has been awful the past couple of weeks. He's gone from using the Bipap only at night to using it quite a bit during the day. It's limiting his ability to get out and about (he still walks pretty well).

I just wonder if the lack of air quality has something to do with this? Is anyone else experiencing increased breathing troubles since these tragic fires broke out?

Thanks so much for any information you have.

I use Bipap too. We had company with a couple of smokers.on the weekend. No matter where you move the smoke seems to follow. I find it bothers me and we were outdoors. When we have a campfire the smoke bothers me even when upwind. I usually stay well back now. It might help to change the filters in his machine.
