What is oxygen therapy? | Pulmonologist in Mumbai | Dr. Parthiv Shah

Oxygen therapy is a treatment that provides you with extra oxygen to breathe in. It is also called supplemental oxygen. It is only accessible with a prescription from your doctor. Some people only need it for a short period of time. Others will need continuous oxygen treatment.

There are several devices that can provide you with oxygen. Some use tanks of liquid or gas oxygen. Others utilize an oxygen concentrator, which draws oxygen from the surrounding atmosphere. The oxygen will be delivered to you through a nasal tube (cannula), a mask, or a tent. The additional oxygen is inhaled with normal air.

There are portable versions of the tanks and oxygen concentrators. They can make it easier for you to move around while using your therapy.
