Patients with chronic airway diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, bronchiectasis, etc., can cause poor lung ventilation, decreased lung gas exchange function, low blood oxygen saturation, and chronic hypoxia, which in turn aggravates the primary disease . And long-term home oxygen therapy is beneficial to these people. Oxygen therapy can increase the concentration of inhaled oxygen, improve and correct tissue hypoxia. The effect is positive, the method is simple, and the price is reasonable. It has become a widely used method for patients with respiratory diseases.
For example, patients with pneumonia can inhale oxygen 2-3 times a day, 0.5-1 hour each time, to ensure the body's normal metabolism needs.
Emphysema patients have difficulty breathing, coughing weakness, and cyanosis during hypoxia. Long-term hypoxia can lead to other more serious diseases. Inhaling appropriate amounts of oxygen has great benefits.
Chronic bronchitis patients who have been sick for a long time are prone to suffocation, coughing, etc. due to obstruction of the respiratory tract, and severe chest pain may be caused. It is best for patients to take regular and quantitative oxygen therapy to relieve physical weakness caused by long-term hypoxia.
Bronchial asthma is prone to recurring attacks, which is difficult to cure and severely impairs cardiopulmonary function. In addition to medications for this disease, oxygen therapy is a very important method, and oxygen must be persistent.
If your family has relatives suffering from chronic diseases and cardiovascular diseases, especially chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD for short), they are also suitable for oxygen therapy at home. You only need to prepare an oxygen generator at home to achieve long-term regular oxygen therapy at home, provided that you follow your doctor's instructions and perform it according to your own situation. This is not only economical, but also avoids cross-infection in the hospital during extraordinary periods.
