Recommendation on Re-Training
It is recognised that the administration of oxygen is a clinical procedure which may or may not be used on a regular basis. The frequency which individuals use the procedure will have an effect on their level of skill and confidence.
It is recommended therefore that individuals attend a refresher course within 2 years.
