safety tips for preventing accidents when using oxygen therapy.
Keep oxygen containers secured in an upright positionOxygen containers should always be secured in a stand, holder, or to a fixed object. Containers can be damaged if they fall over.

Aim the cylinder valve away from you and other people when opening or closing the valve. Always open or close the valve slowly.
