Expert Video - How can nurses and patients work together to optimize oxygen therapy?

Susan Jacobs, RN, MSN, FAAN, of Stanford University, explains various ways that nurses and patients can work together to optimize oxygen therapy. She recommends asking a nurse manager who is an expert in oxygen therapy how to make the most of your oxygen prescription. She explains what to bring to your appointment, including your oxygen equipment. She tells you who besides your nurse you can ask for help, when to call the company that supplies your oxygen therapy equipment, and when you should call for equipment to be fixed. Is your equipment too heavy or complicated? Susan Jacobs explains how communication, even about simple things in oxygen therapy, can help you make the most of your oxygen prescription so you can be as healthy as possible.
