    wheelchair and oxygen tubing

    With my mother on oxygen, is it safe if my chair runs over the tubing occasionally? Often, I can't avoid it.

    No problem, although be sure you are not stationary on it a long time as you will crimp it off. Be careful it does not get tangled in your foot plates or other chair parts.

      I've been with several oxygen users that use chairs, no problem. As KLD said, watch you don't sit on it and you may want to check for kinks on occasion.

        That's what I've been doing. Thanks for the confirmation.
