Qxygen Levels

Can someone get too much medical oxygen? My mother was rushed to the hospital and they gave her a level 12 of oxygen, and she had only been given a level 1 at her home.

No  12 liters of oxygen is not to much especially if having trouble breathing.
I know because I am on 6 liters of oxygen and had to be rushed to the hospital and the paramedics had to give me 15 liters of oxygen don't worry it will not harm it helps breathing better.good luck
