Oxygen therapy is a way to get more oxygen into your lungs and bloodstream. It is sometimes used for people with diseases that make it hard to breathe, such as COPD, cystic fibrosis or heart failure. Oxygen therapy can make it easier to breathe. And it can reduce the heart’s workload.
Some people need extra oxygen all the time. Others need it from time to time throughout the day or overnight. A doctor will prescribe how much oxygen you need, based on blood tests. He or she will tell you how much oxygen to use per minute (the flow rate) and how often to use it.
Providence Home Medical Equipment offers a complete line of oxygen systems designed to meet the individual needs of our patients. Systems are selected after considering flow rate, environmental factors, portability needs and the patient's clinical condition. Complete patient and caregiver instruction on oxygen use and safety are included to assure the patient receives the maximum benefit from the therapy. Our “traveling with oxygen” program assists patients in planning how best to meet oxygen needs when away from home.
