Oxygen is a prescribed treatment for people with hypoxemia. It is NOT a treatment for breathlessness and does not greatly improve quality of life either in hypoxic or normoxic people.

Home oxygen treatment involves breathing high concentrations of oxygen from a cylinder or machine in a patient’s home.

The main purpose of home oxygen treatment is to raise a patient’s blood oxygen to a level that prevents harm. The aim of home oxygen therapy is to lengthen life span and facilitate daily activities either in or outside the patient’s home.
