Prescribing Oxygen under the COVID-19 Pandemic

Here is the updated guidance. There are links to the necessary documents. Take your time as I do not think it is written clearly for the casual prescriber, not used to the acronyms! However all the links are here. The Home Oxygen Consent Form (HOCF) and Initial Home Oxygen Risk Mitigation Form (IHORM) ​must be completed ​prior ​to completing a Part A Home Oxygen Order Form (HOOF). A palliative patient does not need a Home Oxygen Assessment and Review (HOS-AR) if they are not suitable.
