Home Oxygen Qualification

In order to qualify (or re-qualify) you for oxygen, we must be able to document the need for it.

We will monitor your oxygen saturation first with no additional oxygen and, if need be, we may ask you to walk or exercise for a short period of time if indicated.

If your oxygen level drops below the established level, we will place you on oxygen and insure you can maintain an appropriate saturation level.

The test takes 30 minutes.


Special Preparations (day of test)

  • Arrive 15 minutes early to your appointment
  • Bring your insurance card and any physician orders
  • If already on home oxygen, be sure to wear it to appointment
  • Take all medications as prescribed (unless instructed otherwise)
  • Remove any nail polish (for quality pulse oximetry readings)
  • Wear comfortable shoes and loose clothing
