Abstract

Oxygen therapy is a treatment providing more than 21% oxygen to the patients. It is necessary to take into account its indications, side effects and prescribing methods. Specific oxygen delivering devices are available and it is categorised into fixed and variable performance devices. Choice of these devices depends on condition of individual patients. Oxygen can be prescribed as uncontrolled oxygen therapy or controlled oxygen therapy which also depends on the disease state of the patients. Risks and benefits of oxygen should be balanced, however it should not be prevented in any crisis condition.
