      For many of us living in the province of Ontario, we’ve been repeatedly warned about a “catastrophic” and “historic” ice storm that may be upon us early Saturday evening into Sunday. As record amount of rain fall hits during the day Saturday, it is predicted to flash freeze overnight as the unseasonably warm temperature drop below freezing. Along with predicted high winds, this is combination is likely to create widespread power outages. For those of us living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and reliant on supplemental oxygen, power outages can be really scary!

      My late co-columnist Kim Frederickson wrote about her experience in coping with power/electricity outages as a patient with pulmonary fibrosis, which can be found HERE. I thought it was a timely reminder for those of us using 02 to prepared during winter storms, which are predicted to hit the majority of the province this weekend in Ontario.


      How else do you prepare for widespread power outages as a patient requiring oxygen?

      Stay safe everyone!
