Oxygen Therapy

Oxygen can be used for a variety of purposes within the medical treatment of both chronic and acute cases either in hospital, within pre-hospital settings or as part of entirely out of hospital care but will be dependent on each patient’s needs and the opinion of those medical professionals who are responsible for their care.

Oxygen is essential for cell metabolism and tissue oxygenation is similarly essential for all normal physiological functions, but in certain circumstances high blood and tissue levels of oxygen can be either helpful or damaging.
