Oxygen Therapy

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

Oxygen Therapy

Oxygen therapy can enable people with COPD to do regular activities and exercise with more ease. A doctor will determine if and when oxygen therapy is required through a blood test called arterial blood gas or a pulse oximeter. An oxygen prescription will direct the home oxygen provider, like Medigas, as to the dose and the frequency that the oxygen therapy should be administered.
