Do your patients face difficulty in getting adequate access to supplemental oxygen? This session will cover novel oxygen delivery systems for outpatient use and upcoming innovations in oxygen delivery. A particular focus will include current barriers to oxygen delivery, regulatory limitations which impair access to adequate oxygen, and ATS advocacy needed towards legislative change. ATS’s involvement in advancing this clinical issue to health policy change will be addressed. Finally, the session covers the next frontier in access to home respiratory support, highlighting patients’ and providers’ challenges after the recent recall of non-invasive ventilation devices and advocating for those issues.

    Describe two challenges or barriers to patients’ oxygen therapy as related to CMS regulations and/or DME Companies Incorporate approaches from ATS Clinical Oxygen Guidelines to address patients’ oxygen therapy concerns Describe two strategies ATS members can use to effectively advocate for legislation related to oxygen therapy.
