How to get Oxygen at home for Ozone or EWOT therapy

24th December 2006 by Arrow Durfee Posted in Uncategorized

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 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)

    OK! I give up! What is EWOT Therapy?

  2. Arrow Durfee Says:

    EWOT is an ancronym for Exercise With Oxygen Therapy. It has been shown to be beneficial in may chronic conditions as it will increase the amount of circulating oxygen in your blood. Many people with chronic disease will be deficient in circulating oxygen.

    Some alternative doctors recommend this form of exercise to their patients.

    This treatment may be helpful for cancer, early vascular disease, heart failure, and as an anti-aging therapy, actually for many conditions. I recommend that it be done while walking on a treadmill or using a mini trampoline. 15 to 20 minutes is usually sufficient to super saturate the blood with oxygen. You should have the oxygen set to 6 to 8 leters per minute and use a nasal canula.

    I like the mini trampoline and I will post an article on why before long. I do it to alleviate stress. I feel really good after an EWOT session and it helps me to increase my exercise endurance because oxygen in abundance is delivered to tissues all over the body.

    Some people with COPD have used it but please consult with a docotor first in this condition. You do not want to build up too much CO2 in the blood and not be able to eliminate it through your lungs. This could be dangerous.

    I published an EWOT artile you might be interested in.

    Thanks for your info about oxygen tanks. I can rustle one up pretty easy by putting an ad in our local community classified ads, but where the heck do I begin to look for a large mouth medical regulator.
    Thanks, Jim

    Here are two places you can get one. You want a pediatric large mouth regulator.

    Dear Arrowwind, you are probably from the US and therefore not necessarily familiar with metric measures. When you quote “leter” I am sure you refer to a “Liter” which is equal to 1000ml and is a metric measurement equal to 33.813484 fl.oz. When some people read “leter” they may be confused as to what is meant.

  7. Arrow Durfee Says:

    Bertold, you are absolutely right. I do mean Liter.

    Oxygen is not explosive , but it does increase the burning of materials by supplying the oxygen enriched atmosphere and it there is an oil or fast burning substance available could possibly create an explosive atmosphere.
