When Trump was admitted to the hospital, there were rumors that he was put on supplementary oxygen for his treatment. But the reports were denied.

Why Was Dr Sean Conley Was Chosen With President Donald Trump Health Care?
Dr Sean Conley is a 40-year-old physicians and has been taking care of President’s health from the year 2018. Just like most of the medical staff in the White House, Dr Conley also was a military officer initially. And that makes President his commander-in-chief. Ever since the American Civil War, the doctors have been hired from the military itself. Part of the reason is also because civilian doctor might leave practice for a long time with short notice.
Former Presidential Physician, Dr Connie Mariano revealed that its better for the White House to hire doctors from the military. Because the doctors are the first responders and making medicines for the White House is no less than a battlefield medicine.
Dr Sean Conley Served In War-Torn Situation Before White House
Before getting to the White House Medical Unit, Dr Conley was posted in Afghanistan. After he completed his courses at the Naval Medical Centre in Virginia, he was the Chief of Trauma. He worked with the NATO medical unit in Afghanistan. During his practice, he received a Romanian Emblem of Honour. He saved the life of a Romanian soldier from injuries caused by an explosive device.
After Afghanistan, he came back to the US and Trump appointed him as his personal doctor in the year 2018. His previous physician Dr Ronny Jackson was promoted to the head of the US Department of Veteran Affairs. However, Dr Jackson withdrew from his position as he was called out as unethical in a series of documents released by the opposition parties.
