Oxygen Therapy

If you use oxygen therapy at home you may need to take some additional fire safety precautions, this is because oxygen makes a fire burn more strongly.


Don’t smoke in the same room as the oxygen cylinder, especially in bed.


Your oxygen equipment should be stored safely; out of direct sunlight and in a place that is well ventilated, always dry and away from heat sources.


Only use oxygen when there are no naked flames, including gas and electric cookers within three metres.


Ensure oxygen equipment is properly turned off when it is not being used.
