Oxygen therapy is a treatment that provides you with extra oxygen, a gas that your body needs to function. Normally, your lungs absorb oxygen from the air. Some diseases or conditions can prevent you from getting enough oxygen. Oxygen therapy may help you function better and stay active.
Oxygen therapy can be done in a hospital, another medical facility, or at home. If you need oxygen therapy for a chronic (ongoing) disease or condition, your physician may prescribe home oxygen therapy.
MHM provides oxygen therapy as a respiratory service. The home model concentrator may be prescribed with or without sleep therapy, depending on the patient’s diagnosis. Our respiratory therapists and delivery technicians are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to deliver in-home equipment or to address concerns and issues of patients and family members.
