Oxygen therapy is indicated when there is an abnormally low concentration of oxygen within the arterial blood, otherwise known as hypoxemia. Oxygen is necessary for adequate metabolism of carbohydrates and the production of adenosine triphosphates.

This amount is enough for children who have healthy lungs and many with lung disease. However, some children with lung disease are unable to get enough oxygen in their bodies through normal breathing.
Children with lung problems who live or travel to areas at high altitude may also need oxygen because there is less oxygen in the air. The oxygen therapy is required to help these children grow and develop.
