Definition from own experience or research:
L'oxigenoteràpia és un tractament de prescripció mèdica en què s'administra oxigen en concentracions elevades per prevenir o tractar la hipòxia en sang, cèl·lules i teixits.

Example sentence(s):
  • Per al tractament de la dispnea la indicació d'oxigenoteràpia domiciliària és una pràctica clínica molt habitual al nostre medi. La dispnea és de causa multifactorial i només en els casos en què s'acompanya d’insuficiència respiratòria, l'oxigenoteràpia pot millorar-la. - Generalitat de Catalunya
