I was curious how other units provide oxygen for their chronic O2 dependant patients or do they have to bring their own O2 for tx. I'm not talking about providing O2 in an emergency situation but O2 dependant patients. There is currently an issue with this at the clinics in our area, our area mgr feels pts need to provide their own O2 since "dialysis is like going to a doctors appt & physician offices don't provide O2". We have concentrators but not enough for everyone. Any advice on how to handle this? We have requested another concentrator for our unit and this is the response we got from management, they can not justify buying another one. We have one small O2 cylinder to use in an emergency, but not for routine O2 during tx.
