The Importance of Oxygen Therapy in the Treatment of New Coronary Pneumonia
Oxygen therapy is still needed after the recovery of neocon patients
Most patients with neocon pneumonia have already suffered damage to their body organs during treatment, especially after lung injury, which will indirectly affect the lack of oxygen in other organs.
Who is Suitable for Home Oxygen Therapy?
1. Oxygen therapy
Severe patients should receive oxygen by nasal cannula or mask, and be promptly evaluated for respiratory distress and/or (or) hypoxemia is resolved.
2. High-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy or non-invasive mechanical ventilation
High-flow nasal catheter oxygen therapy or non-invasive ventilation may be considered when the patient's respiratory distress and/or hypoxemia does not resolve with standard oxygen therapy. It is emphasized that "if the condition does not improve or even worsens within a short period of time (1-2 hours), tracheal intubation and invasive mechanical ventilation should be performed promptly".
3. Invasive mechanical ventilation
A lung-protective ventilation strategy, i.e., mechanical ventilation with small tidal volume (4-8 ml/kg ideal body weight) and low inspiratory pressure (plateau pressure <30 cmH2o), is used to reduce ventilator-related lung injury.
Home Oxygen Therapy Combo Recommendation Guide
Home ventilators allow patients to perform non-invasive ventilation at home, giving patients a simple and effective assisted ventilation device outside the hospital room, reducing pressure on hospital beds, saving family expenses, and effectively improving patients' quality of life.
Professional medical-grade oxygen concentrator, simple and easy to operate. Long-term home oxygen therapy can correct hypoxemia, which can not only improve the survival rate of patients, but also effectively improve their quality of life, prevent the occurrence of pulmonary heart disease and right heart failure as well as reduce medical costs including the number of hospitalizations and hospital days. Home oxygen therapy can reduce the risk of nosocomial cross-infection during an epidemic, making it safer and more convenient.
In general, oxygen concentrators can meet the needs of mild patients, and for critically ill patients oxygen concentrators can be used together with ventilators.
Essential blood oxygen saturation tester for home; find blood oxygen saturation less than 90% immediately seek medical attention.
Oximeter is suitable for hospital and home monitoring of blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate, and also for long-term use of ventilator / oxygen machine oxygen therapy people, help to observe the effect of oxygen therapy.
