What time of day does my child need to receive the oxygen therapy?

What time of day your child receives oxygen therapy depends on how much is needed. Usually, if your child needs oxygen during the day, more may be needed at night because breathing slows down while the child sleeps, and the child gets less oxygen. Your child may only need oxygen at night and not during the day. Talk to your child's doctor about how often your child will need oxygen.
