Express Oxygen Discharge

Hospital case managers and/or respiratory therapists recommend oxygen therapy for some patients upon discharge from the hospital to take the strain off their hearts, especially when they have diseased lungs. The majority of Durable Medical Equipment (DME) companies use a traditional model to set-up oxygen therapy systems for patients upon discharge from the hospital. This can be overwhelming for both parties as the hospital depends on various factors to complete the setup such as the delivery technician from the DME to be on the time for the discharge and the patient to plan for the ride home accordingly.
