apparently most hospitals don't have such service, but they were nice and gave us a couple of numbers to call that do happen to provide oxygen tank rental services. they deliver to your front door, with a service charge fee.
24-hour hotline: 03-33715005
deposit: rm300 (refundable upon returning the tank)
delivery charge: rm80
the only thing that you might need to take note if you choose to take on their service is that the tanks that they provide are the 2-metre tall kind, not the small portable ones that you might find elsewhere. since the tank alone is bloody heavy, they won't allow you to bring it upstairs unless you're prepared to pay in the event of any chipped marble staircase (for those living in double-storey homes, unless you have an elevator hidden somewhere).
we had an oxygen party yesterday before calling them to return the tank.
|see how huge it is?|
|when the indicator reaches yellow, it's time to call for a refill|
|you need a trolley to cart out that humungous tong|
|right up to your front door|
thought it might be useful just in case you happen to need this service one day in the future. taa~
