Depends: Some causes of low oxygen can be improved, but others are fairly permanent. Once you have oxygen dependent COPD for instance, it's unlikely to improve. However, if you have congestive heart failure, asthma, infection or inflammation of the lungs sometimes these conditions can be improved with medication and allow you to come off of o2. Living at high altitude also creates some problems. Less o2.
