Does breathing artificial oxygen break the fast?

Some patients who have difficulty breathing need to breathe artificial oxygen whilst fasting. Does this have any effect on the fast?.

The oxygen that is given to some patients does not invalidate the fast, because nothing else is added to this oxygen, so it comes under the same ruling as breathing natural air.

The following things are not regarded as things that break the fast: … oxygen. End quote.
