Lung conditions that may require continuous clinical and residential oxygen therapy are:

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Pneumonia
  • Obstructive bronchitis
  • Breathing disorders
  • Asthma
  • Heart failure
  • Lack of lung development in premature newborns
  • Respiratory organs trauma.

Normal levels of oxygen in arterial blood serum are between 75 and 100 mmHg. If oxygen levels drop lower than 60, it is time to either turn to a doctor, or if the diagnosis is obvious – apply oxygen therapy. Keep in mind that oxygen overdose is also possible and can be as harmful as long term oxygen deficiency. It is a known fact that oxygen overdose can damage lung cells permanently.

There are patients with certain type conditions that only need clinical oxygen therapy with doctor supervising the process. Most people with lung conditions simply need supportive oxygen therapy at home though.
