Expert Video - What are the overall goals of oxygen therapy?

Jerry Krishnan, MD, PhD, of the University of Illinois at Chicago, explains the overall goals of oxygen therapy. Oxygen therapy provides you with extra oxygen to help your lungs deliver the right amount of oxygen for the other organs in your body to function at their best. If you have a lung problem such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or pulmonary fibrosis, you might have low oxygen levels and need extra oxygen. Dr. Krishnan explains how oxygen therapy can help you breathe better and do the things you want and need to do, and the importance of talking to your doctor to determine whether oxygen therapy can help relieve symptoms of not getting enough oxygen.
