Today, many people suffer from heart, Lung, and other respiratory diseases. Many of these people can benefit from supplemental oxygen therapy. Your body requires a steady supply of oxygen to function properly. Your physician prescribed supplemental oxygen for you because you are not getting enough oxygen from room air alone. Supplemental oxygen will increase the amount of oxygen that your body receives.
Supplemental oxygen is not addictive. Your physician prescribed a specific oxygen flow to improve symptoms such as headaches, drowsiness, confusion, fatigue, or increased irritability. If these symptoms persist after you begin your supplemental oxygen program, consult your physician.
