No mask or do not have a mask with a bag?
 
If you do have a regular mask, tape up the holes and in between inhalations turn off the flow so you don't waste the O2.
Breathe out through the side and repeat
 
When I was without a good mask, I would inhale through the tube or straight from the tank.  
 
Be careful but it works.

I'm using a large zip-lock bag.  I secured one corner of the bag around the  "stem" with an electrical tie then covered all the "joints" with duct tape. Ain't pretty.  But nobody but me sees it and it works.

It is up to YOU to educate yourself and then help your doctor plan your treatment. If you just sit down in front of your doctor and say "make me better" you are setting yourself up for a great deal of pain.

This is actually for a person in Missouri that i helped get all the other stuff.  But for some reason, my DME company doesnt have any masks/bags in Missouri.
The mask/bag i use costs all of $1.75.  I just wish i could email this damn thing to missouri.   laugh
Thanks for the help

Well OK then......that's a valid excuse. Here's my emergency util.
 
Grab some electrical tape. Get a one or two gallon zip lock baggie.  Cut the corner off of the bag, opposite the zip seal. Small.....just big enough to let the O2 tube fit thru.  Insert O2 tube. Tape it solidly in place. Grap a cardboard tube from a roll of paper towels. Stick it 1/2 way into one side of the unzipped bag, and ZIP it shut as tight as possible against the tube. (A dab of super glue on the ZIP doesn't hurt where it meets the tube, but you know me and glue...)
Tape the bag securely around the tube. Open O2 tank/regulator, and let bag fill with hand over tube. Put tube in mouth. Inhale thru mouth only, exhale thru nose. Repeat.  
Don't drool on the tube, stupid. Decreases longevity.
Passing along state secrets, y'know.
 
One day, I'll call you and remind you of a favor......
