What are the guidelines for using oxygen therapy? | Asthma specialist in Borivali | Dr. Parthiv Shah

Your doctor will write you a prescription to begin oxygen therapy. They will instruct you on how to use it and how often you should use it. This will contain the flow rate or the amount of oxygen required per minute. It is essential that you follow all of your doctor’s specific instructions. If you don’t think the oxygen therapy is working for you, see them before making any changes.

Some individuals only use oxygen while they are active or sleeping. Other people need oxygen on a daily basis. Most methods of oxygen treatment include portable oxygen tanks, allowing you to leave home with them if required.

Do not use drugs or alcohol while receiving oxygen treatment since they might cause breathing problems. Make your doctor aware of any additional prescription drugs you are taking while considering oxygen treatment.
