In brief: A gas

Oxygen therapy is usually given to people who have cardiac and pulmonary disease and have low oxygen saturations.
The oxygen comes in a tank or concentrator and the flow is adjusted to deliver oxygen to keep a specific blood saturation above 88.

In brief: Put oxygen in nose

Is is giving oxygen to someone who doesn't have the ability to keep the right amount in their blood due to improper exchange from the lungs to the blood.
