Home oxygen therapy is safe as long as you always follow a few simple rules.
Home oxygen equipment is typically stored as a compressed gas in cylinders or as an extremely cold liquid in tanks. As oxygen can make things burn quickly, it’s very important when using it that you observe these general safety precautions.
For further information consult your oxygen equipment’s user guide.
Our primary concern is for your safety.
Your home oxygen concentrator is powered by electricity, so it is critical that you are set up with a backup oxygen tank or a portable concentrator, and that you are comfortable using it. If you live in a remote area, install a generator at home.
