Sorry, I don't know much about
oxygen, as I have never been on it.
However a few things I remember from when my friend was on it, was that having a liquid oxygen tank in the house was better than a regular one. She could take oxygen from that to use in portable cylinders, and they lasted longer than regular portable oxygen cylinders. A full cylinder could last upto 10 hours on a 2 litre rate.
However the compressors were extremely expensive and I think in the UK they only let them out to people who are on constant oxygen. However I'm unsure what the status is like on this elsewhere in the world.
I know on a lot of ous campsites, they have plugs next to where you have your tent. You can have extensions from the plug sockets, so you can have or 6 things plugged in at once. Once of these things could be an oxygen compressor. Do they have anything like this where you live? Maybe rather than stopping camping totally, just looking for a campsite with electricity sockets?
I know compressors are huge though, so not sure how possible this would be anyway. Just thought it was a good suggestion to get round the problem.
Sorry can't be more helpful. Hope you're ok, or if not, at least feeling better than normal!
