Hi I have a non life threatening medical condition that requires at home oxygen with high flow concentration. The condition requires that I receive oxygen in middle of the night I am looking for a medical supply company that is open in the pm hours so I can have the oxygen when I need it late tonight. I contacted bikur cholim, and they were not able to help me. Hatzlah can only come if there is an actual emergency, and I feel bad making them come in middle of the night for something not life threatening.
Does anyone know where I can get a hold of at home oxygen during the pm hours, medical supply company open 24 hours a day etc.

Update: Got it, thank you for your help.

Does your condition respond to an oxygen concentrator? You don't need separate oxygen tanks.

If you need actual tanks, you'll need prescriptions to get & keep the oxygen tanks at home. You don't call a company to come out each time you need it.

I need an actual tank not a concentrator. I have a prescription but don't have the tank right now. I'm looking to order one as soon as I can.

Have your doctor send in a prescription to a homecare company for 3 or whatever amount of oxygen tanks. They'll need to write a diagnosis code and send it to a company serving NJ such as prompt care, byram...This is a routine type of request. They'll put in order for oxygen mask, nasal cannula and whatever else you require such as a pulse ox machine.

Most people get the initial prescription from the specialist and after, the pcp will keep refills g ut.

Why do you need them to come in middle of the night? It’s like if you need to take a pill at midnight every night, you don’t go to a pharmacy every night to get one pill. You get a supply of it to keep in your house.

Edit - are you saying you need it for TONIGHT? If so I’d call Bikur Cholim for just this one night, call now before it gets late
