NHOPA National Home Oxygen Patients Association (NHOPA)
There are many resources available for those who suffer from respiratory diseases. Support organizations and informational websites exist for nearly every major disease. We'll help guide you to the resources you need.
The National Home Oxygen Patient's Association was established in the late 1990s and is devoted exclusively to improving the lives of people across the country who require supplementary oxygen on a regular basis. A prestigious group of physicians and allied health professionals, providers and manufacturers formed the association when they recognized that, despite their own efforts to speak on behalf of their patients and customers, oxygen patients truly needed their own organization.
