Expert Video - How do doctors determine who needs oxygen therapy after hospitalization?

You may go home with oxygen therapy after a hospital stay. Dr. Jerry Krishnan of the University of Illinois at Chicago explains how a breathing attack in the hospital can affect your need for oxygen therapy and how bronchitis or pneumonia can affect you. He also explains why hospital staff always check the amount of oxygen in your bloodstream when you arrive, what qualifies as low oxygen, what treatments and medications may be given, how long you might need oxygen therapy, as well as considerations for when you are ready to go home.
