Patients with COPD may need supplemental oxygen to help their bodies and organs function normally. Oxygen therapy is prescribed by a physician and can be used at home, either short or long-term. Since supplemental oxygen needs vary, there are different oxygen delivery equipment types to best fit your oxygen needs and lifestyle.
Oxygen therapy can help you stay active and feel better. Patients on oxygen therapy can enjoy fulfilling lifestyles both in and out of home. Visit the American Lung Association website for helpful information and resources on oxygen therapy.
