Why Your Physician Prescribed Supplemental Oxygen
Today, many people suffer from heart, lung, and other respiratory diseases. Many of these peo-
ple can benefit from supplemental oxygen therapy. Your body requires a steady supply of oxy-
gen to function properly. Your physician prescribed supplemental oxygen for you because you
are not getting enough oxygen from room air alone. Supplemental oxygen will increase the
amount of oxygen that your body receives.
Supplemental oxygen is not addictive. Your physician prescribed a specific oxygen flow to
improve symptoms such as headaches, drowsiness, confusion, fatigue, or increased irritability.

How Your DeVilbiss Oxygen Concentrator Works
Oxygen concentrators are the most reliable, efficient, and convenient source of supplemental
oxygen available today. The oxygen concentrator is electrically operated. The unit separates
oxygen from room air which allows high-purity supplemental oxygen to be delivered to you
through the oxygen outlet. Although the concentrator filters the oxygen in a room, it will not
affect the normal amount of oxygen in your room.
