Administering Oxygen to a 'Patient'

Dear Captain,

I want to ask you while in flight, one of your passengers has problem with breathing and ask for oxygen,

Can we use the aircraft portable oxygen?

Thanks for the answer.

Marsa

Hi Marsa,

Beside the emergency oxygen masks that drop down from the aircraft cabin ceiling in the event of emergency decompression, there are portable therapeutic oxygen bottles similar to those in ambulance on the ground. They are available to all passengers who need them in an emergency such as breathing difficulties.

However these oxygen bottles and masks are only used under the proper supervision of the Flight Attendants or on recommendations of any doctors on board the plane. These are normally stored in the overhead compartments but could not be used by any passengers without authority and only by trained personnel.

Typically, a 120 litres therapeutic oxygen bottles (Scott) when selected to “Hi” flow will last about 30 minutes or “Lo” will last for 60 minutes in flight.
