Breathe Easier with Supplemental Oxygen

Supplemental oxygen therapy helps people with breathing conditions get enough oxygen to function and stay well

Getting Started with Oxygen Therapy

By prescribing oxygen therapy, your doctor is hoping to increase the level of oxygen in your bloodstream. To determine the right type and amount of oxygen, doctors perform tests that measure the amount of oxygen in the patient’s blood during rest, exercise, and sleep. Based on the assessments, you will be provided with a prescription that states your need for supplemental oxygen.

A Helping Hand

At Owens, we go the extra mile to offer individual support to each and every patient. We’ll teach you how to use oxygen safely and as directed by your doctor.

Supplemental oxygen is a medicine. While it’s not addictive, and it causes no major side effects, it must be used as directed. Never increase or decrease the amount without consulting with your healthcare provider

Oxygen Therapy can Help

Are you ready to sleep better, have more energy, or experience less shortness of breath? Oxygen therapy can help. Many patients with respiratory diseases feel less breathless during everyday activities after starting supplemental oxygen therapy. When you’re not getting enough oxygen, it can make you feel tired and breathless. Even simple tasks like household chores can be a challenge. Oxygen therapy circulates more oxygen to the bloodstream, which may improve your energy levels.

Not everyone with shortness of breath is a candidate for supplemental oxygen. Talk to your physician about whether this therapy is right for you.
