oxygen-nose bleeds

My mom is on 6 liters of oxygen 24/7. She has excessive nosebleeds. Is there anything that can help this?

Supplemental oxygen can be very drying to the nose and cause nosebleeds.  Adding a humidifier to the supplemental oxygen will help to moisten the oxygen.  This will help to lessen the drying effect.

Another option is Cann-Ease
