Supplemental oxygen may be useful or necessary in some cases even though it may be needed only for a few hours a day for a few months. Some patients may need oxygen when [[home:othertreatments:oxygen:flying|flying]] or at high altitude.+Some patients with obstructive lung diseases have trouble getting enough oxygen by breathing normally.
