Is this what the doctor ordered? Accuracy of oxygen therapy prescribed and delivered in hospital.

Abstract

1. Oxygen therapy should be prescribed by a doctor like any other drug. 2. Results of a study on provision of oxygen therapy in hospital showed it is not always written on patients' treatment sheets, but even when it is, patients do not always receive the concentration prescribed. 3. Junior doctors lack education about the delivery of oxygen therapy. 4. The number of delivery devices, and the lack of accompanying information with many, makes it difficult to choose the correct one.
