Questions to Ask Before Beginning Home Oxygen Therapy

If you've been given a prescription for oxygen therapy, your doctor has decided that this treatment will help you live a more productive, fulfilling life at home. The equipment, however, can be intimidating, so be sure to ask your doctor or retailer some questions before making any purchases.

  • What type of oxygen therapy is being prescribed?
    There are actually two basic forms of oxygen therapy that are used for a vast variety of diseases and ailments, from asthma to heart failure. Most common is oxygen breathing therapy, where a tube is inserted into the nostril or a mask is worn, and pure oxygen gas is breathed in daily. However, patients experiencing issues with air bubbles in the blood, problems with levels of red and white blood cells, or toxic tissue may require hyperbaric treatment. Hyperbaric treatment requires a portable chamber, in which you are enclosed to alter your surrounding air pressure.

  • What form of oxygen is best suited for your lifestyle?
    Oxygen comes in three basic forms for basic therapy with various convenience and equipment. First, you can opt for regular pressurized gas. You'll likely have a larger tank at home for storage, and a smaller one that is easier to transport. Another option is liquid oxygen. The oxygen comes as a liquid and transforms into gas as it works through the regulator. It's also more expensive, but is much lighter and portable. Finally, an oxygen concentrator is another option. A concentrator tank will take oxygen out of existing air, store it, and create your own limitless supply.

  • Is this covered by insurance?
    Most insurances will cover home oxygen therapy. However, this is dependent on many factors including your diagnosis, lab tests, and the insurance brand itself.
