What to Expect

Oxygen is supplied as a compressed gas, as a liquid, or in a concentrated form taken from the air. Oxygen is usually stored in large containers, which are connected to your mask or cannula using a flexible tube. Oxygen can also be stored in smaller, portable containers. These can be carried with you in a satchel or backpack so that you can receive oxygen while you perform your daily activities.

There are important safety precautions that must be taken while using oxygen therapy:

  • Do not smoke or be around people who are smoking
  • Do not use flammable materials such as paint thinners, gasoline, cleaning fluids, or aerosol sprays
  • Stay at least five feet from open flames such as gas stoves, candles, or fireplaces
