Section 1 of this book deals with the basics of oxygen purity, storage distribution, and safety of oxygen. With multiple incidents of fires in hospitals claiming lives, safety becomes the most critical aspect. It is equally important to distribute oxygen to multiple wards and the ICU to justify oxygen usage.

It also speaks about targets in oxygen therapy and preventing oxygen toxicity. Section 3 describes various oxygen delivery systems.
