A home oxygen assessment is conducted to determine if you need home oxygen therapy which can help you cope with certain lung or other medical conditions. The assessment may include the following tests: a specialized blood test called an Arterial Blood Gas (ABG) and a walking oximetry. If you do need home oxygen, the test results can also determine if you qualify for financial help from the provincial government for assistive devices.
