What is oxygen therapy?
The term ‘Oxygen Therapy’ has developed several meanings over the past few years. Below are two of the most frequent definitions of oxygen therapy in use today.
- A clinical treatment that provides your body with extra oxygen, delivered via the lungs, as prescribed by a respiratory physician or General Practitioner.
- An ‘Alternative Medicine’ treatment, based on little or no clinical evidence, founded on the idea that increased oxygen in the body can heal cancer, headaches, AIDS and hypoxia and a range of other ailments.
Oxygen Solutions supply medical grade oxygen therapy for patients with a prescription from a respiratory physician or GP. Without a current and valid prescription we will be unable to supply you with oxygen.
If you suffer from a condition that you believe can be aided with the use of oxygen therapy we recommend talking to your GP first.
