Home oxygen therapy involves breathing in air that contains more oxygen than normal through a mask or tube connected to a device in your home.
Oxygen is supplied in a metal cylinder or another container. It flows through a tube and is delivered to your lungs in one of the following ways:
- short tubes placed in your nostrils, called a nasal cannula.
- a mask over your nose and mouth.
- a small tube inserted into your windpipe through the front of your neck, called a tracheostomy.
A home model concentrator may be prescribed with or without sleep therapy, depending on the patient’s diagnosis.
