Be Careful While Using home Oxygen Therapy

Healthy tips: While you are using at home oxygen therapy, keep in mind that you will need to be very cautious around anything that has a fire or can ignite.

The ADAM Encyclopedia offers these security suggestions:
  • Make sure there are working smoke detectors all through your home, and keep a fire extinguisher handy.
  • Never smoke or allow smoking around the oxygen, stay a minimum of 6 feet from any smoker.
  • Keep the oxygen at least 6 feet from any fireplace, stove or electric machine such as a hairdryer, electric toothbrush or razor, electric blanket, electric toy, space heater or electric baseboard heater.
  • Keep the oxygen as distant away as possible from an oven or stove while cooking, and be very wary of lubricant splatters.
  • Keep the oxygen away from any flammable liquor.
