If one has NSIP, is there any physical activities that should be avoided like singing or snorkeling?

From Dr. Moua: If there is concern for low oxygen, care should be taken with more rigorous activity, with oxygen support if needed. This would be inclusive of snorkeling or airplane traveling given the changes in oxygen and atmospheric pressures. Otherwise, singing, exercising, walking, and daily activities should be performed as much as tolerated to maintain good conditioning, with the support of oxygen where needed.
