• To ensure user safety and the precise administration of oxygen, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) mandates that medical oxygen requires a prescription. Since patients vary in size and medical needs, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Therefore, patients must consult their doctors to obtain a prescription for medical oxygen.
  • The FDA further mandates that medical oxygen cylinders must be contamination-free, and there should be a verified chain of custody to ensure that cylinders are solely dedicated to medical oxygen. Cylinders previously used for other purposes must undergo evacuation, thorough cleaning, and appropriate labeling before they can be used for medical-grade oxygen.
  • Air Source Industries is an FDA-registered entity authorized to refill medical oxygen cylinders for patients with valid prescriptions.
