Oxygen therapy, also known as supplemental oxygen, is the use of oxygen as medical treatment. Acute indications for therapy include hypoxemia, carbon monoxide toxicity and cluster headache. It may also be prophylactically given to maintain blood oxygen levels during the induction of anaesthesia. Wikipedia
Medical oxygen as a term has become much more well-known since the pandemic with the crisis of oxygen needed globally due to Covid-19. This form of oxygen allows many patients to have the ability to take in oxygen and be able to do many daily things that we take for granted such as move around, light exercise and even travel with medical oxygen and see the world!
Medical oxygen is prescribed for patients suffering from COPD, chronic asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory diseases.
