How much oxygen should I use?

Oxygen is considered a drug and requires a prescription from your healthcare provider. The amount of oxygen that you need may be different depending on the type of activity you are doing. It is very important that you use the amount of oxygen that has been prescribed to you for each activity. Using too little oxygen may starve your brain and heart of oxygen, resulting in fatigue, memory loss, and changes to the heart. Too much oxygen can also cause problems.
