Third Party Oxygen Assessments

ARL Respiratory Labs

By addressing oxygen deficiency through timely intervention, we strive to enhance your quality of life and prevent the potential complications that can arise from inadequate oxygen levels.  This test is used to qualify for various home oxygen programs. A home oxygen assessment includes monitoring oxygen levels on room air, a possible arterial blood gas (if oxygen levels low), as well as the possibility of a walking oxygen level test.

Oxygen Assessment Benefits

Interestingly, individuals experiencing oxygen deficiency due to COPD or other lung diseases may not always recognize the subtle signs themselves. It often takes the keen eye of a healthcare provider to identify the need for oxygen therapy. Your healthcare team at ARL Respiratory Labs is equipped with the expertise to conduct specific tests, gauging your oxygen levels and determining whether supplemental oxygen is necessary.

A small probe is placed on the patient’s finger to monitor oxygen levels. If the level is low, then an arterial blood gas will be performed. A walking test may then be performed if the blood oxygen level falls within a certain range. The walking test consists of the patient walking with a probe on their finger, while breathing in room air. If levels drop for a specific duration of time during the walking test, the patient is placed on oxygen for 5 to 10 minutes. During this time, we will be continuously monitoring oxygen levels.
