Acute Oxygen Treatment
Oxygen has been used in clinical practice for more than 200 years. It is probably the most widely prescribed medication in pre-hospital and hospital environments. If appropriately used it is life-saving and part of first-lineÂ treatment in many critical conditions. As with any drug, oxygen should be used when indicated, in appropriate dosage (concentration), and correctly administered for a planned duration.
