Respiratory Therapy FAQs

What is oxygen therapy?

Oxygen therapy is a type of treatment that gives you extra oxygen to breathe in. This is also referred to as supplemental oxygen. There are different types of devices including tanks of liquid or gas oxygen and oxygen concentrators used to help provide the oxygen.  

Who needs oxygen therapy?

Many people, especially individuals with conditions like asthma, lung cancer, COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, pneumonia, and the Flu can benefit from oxygen therapy. Speak with your doctor to see if oxygen therapy makes sense for you.

Can I travel with oxygen?

Yes, there are portable oxygen options available, and it is possible to travel. It is important to plan ahead and double check with your doctor as well as the airline to see what guidelines they have in place regarding oxygen.  

What are the side effects of oxygen therapy?It may cause a dry and bloody nose, skin irritation, tiredness, or headaches in the morning. If you are experiencing extreme side effects, contact your doctor immediately. Oxygen toxicity can be a side effect, however, typical supplemental oxygen patients using low-flow settings on their oxygen concentrators are not at risk of oxygen toxicity.
How much oxygen will I need?Everyone is different with how much oxygen they will need; your doctor will give you a prescription that tells you how much you will need and how often you need it. Some people need oxygen all day long while others only need it during certain times of the day.
What are the safety precautions that need to be taken when using home oxygen?Never smoke around oxygen or be near someone else who is smoking, keep away from flames, keep a distance from heat sources, don’t use flammable products, keep oxygen containers upright and inform your electric company when starting home oxygen. 
Should I use a nasal cannula or a mask?Usually people will prefer a nasal cannula over a mask because it is smaller and doesn’t look as medical on your face but sometimes a mask is required depending on how much oxygen you need. Some people also get rashes or skin irritation from the nasal cannula. It just depends on personal preference and how much oxygen you need. 
What is the best treatment option for dry mouth and nose?Using a water-based nasal cream will be extremely helpful, it is important to not use Vaseline. It is also recommended that you use a humidifier to help with the dryness in your home.
