Home Oxygen Therapy
Home oxygen therapy involves breathing in air that contains more oxygen than normal from a cylinder or machine in your home as prescribed by a physician.
How home oxygen therapy can help.
If you have a health condition that causes low levels of oxygen in your blood, you may feel breathless and tired, particularly after walking or coughing. Fluid may also build up around your ankles.
Breathing air with oxygen increases the amount of oxygen in your blood.
This makes it easier to carry out activities that might otherwise be difficult, and helps
Oxygen therapy also helps prevent damage to the heart and brain, which can be caused by low levels of oxygen in the blood.
It can help people with a range of health conditions, such as:
- chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- pulmonary fibrosis
- heart failure
- obesity-related hypoventilation
- severe long-term asthma
- pulmonary hypertension
- conditions affecting the nerves and muscles or ribcage
- cystic fibrosis
Can Sleep Apnoea Cause Oxygen Deprivation?
Sleep apnoea is a debilitating and potentially serious condition in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. If you snore loudly or wake up tired even after a full night sleep, you may have sleep apnoea.
Can Oxygen Therapy Help With COPD or emphysema?
COPD is short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in which airflow to the lungs is obstructed by chronic inflammation. The symptoms are characterised by shortness of breath, coughing, high levels of phlegm and wheezing. It is a dangerous condition which can lead to heart disease. Emphysema and bronchitis are common conditions which contribute to COPD.

What does an Oxygen Concentrator do?
An oxygen concentrator is a machine that uses the ambient air as a raw material to to generate high purity oxygen by separating it from the nitrogen using a device known as a molecular sieve. This life-enhancing gas is delivered to the user by a breathing device such as a nasal cannula or face mask. Oxygen therapy is indicated in a number of different conditions including cystic fibrosis, pneumonia and other lung disorders.
How Does an Oxygen Concentrator Work?
Think of an oxygen concentrator like an air conditioner — it takes air in, changes it, and delivers it in a different form. Patients who required oxygen therapy in the past mainly relied on pressurized oxygen tanks. Even though these tanks are effective, they require regular refilling and are cumbersome and expensive in the long term.How Does an Oxygen Concentrator Work?
