Ambulatory (Portable) Oxygen Therapy (AOT)

Portable Oxygen Cylinder 2       Portable Oxygen Cylinder        LOX  POC    TOC

 

Ambulatory oxygen therapy (AOT) is portable oxygen that some patients need on exertion outside of the home.  Only patients with low levels of oxygen on exertion will benefit from this treatment.  Some patients need this as well as LTOT but others may only need it if they are active outside of the home. 

 

There are several options for this type of oxygen although not all equipment is suitable for every patient.  The most common are small cylinders that weigh between 5-8lbs and can be carried over the shoulder or wheeled in a trolley. 

 

Other options include liquid oxygen (LOX), portable concentrators (POC) and transportable concentrators (TOC).  Each patient will be individually assessed and given the equipment that suits their needs.
