How to get Oxygen at home for Ozone or EWOT therapy

There is no difference between medical oxygen and welding oxygen. All are pure oxygen. In medical oxygen it is certified that the tank is full and that the tank meets certain standards. Thats about it. Also, in many states you need and Rx for medical oxygen.
I use a welding tank for delivering oxygen for my ozone therapy. You can purchase a welding tank at any welders supply. They are called large tanks but come in several sizes. What is most notably large about them is the size of the whole at the top that requires a specific size pressure gauge or regulator.
For medical grade tanks the pressure gauge measures in liters per minute. In welding tanks the measurement is in PSI. (pounds per square inch)
To use a welding tank for medical purposes you must get a gauge (regulator) that is in liters per minute but is designed for the large whole.
For EWOT therapy you want a regulator that goes up to at least 6 or 8 liters per minute.
For ozone therapy you want a regulator that can deliver very small flows of oxygen down to 1/32 liter per minute. This you will find in a pediatiric oxygen regulator. You need a pediatric regulator designed for a large mouth tank. This can be purchased at www.plasmafire.com They may also sell large tank regulators that deliver the high flow rates, don’t know for sure.
Having an oxygen tank at home is not unsafe. Hundreds of thousands of people have them at home both for health reasons and for welding. Some states or cities require that you have a sign in your window that oxygen is on the premesis. This is to notifly emergency workers if there is ever a fire in your home.
You do not want to smoke in a room that contains oxygen tanks or where oxygen is in use. It is highly flamable and can be explosive.
(Caution: for those with COPD, Emphysema, EWOT therapy may be dangerous depending on the degree of disease you have. Consult your doctor)
