Oxygen Therapy for Patients at Home

Posted: October 4th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »


Oxygen therapy is a treatment that provides a patient with extra oxygen. Some diseases and
conditions can prevent you from getting enough oxygen from the air.

Oxygen therapy can help you or your loved one function better and be more active longer. With
oxygen therapy, oxygen is supplied in a metal cylinder, as a concentrator or portable. There are
two ways the oxygen is delivered to your lungs. It flows through a tube

  • into the nose from two small plastic tubes that are placed in both nostrils.
  • through a face mask fitted over the nose and mouth.

Oxygen therapy can be provided at home for those patients who do not need to be in the hospital.
