Oxygen Therapy for COPD

You may have medical gas therapy if you need supplemental oxygen to make it easier for you to breathe.

What You Need to Know

  • You absolutely cannot smoke while you are using oxygen.
  • Don't store your oxygen near a heat source or open flame.
  • Don't change the flow rate on your oxygen by yourself. This can cause serious side effects.
  • Don't use more than 50 feet of oxygen tubing.
  • Oxygen is a safe gas, if used properly.
