Not only the elderly need oxygen, but the following people also need oxygen, so our breathing is very important. Oxygen plays a decisive role in strengthening the immune system. Insufficient oxygen supply can cause stroke, arteriosclerosis, liver disease, uterine fibroids, etc. disease.
What is the role of oxygen therapy (oxygen generator)?
Oxygen therapy has three purposes: 1 to improve hypoxemia; 2 to reduce the work of breathing; 3 to reduce the load on the heart.
Simple analysis: correct the body’s hypoxia (hypoxemia), thereby alleviating a series of physical problems caused by hypoxia.
Oxygen therapy is to correct the hypoxic state of the body, so oxygen therapy is necessary when hypoxia.
Oxygen therapy can maintain proper tissue oxygen supply with minimal heart and lung work, so long-term oxygen inhalation in advance reduces the load on the heart and lungs.
Three elements of oxygen therapy: flow rate/wearing time/oxygen therapy course
Long-term family oxygen therapy: In daily life, patients need long-term low-flow oxygen inhalation due to the condition of the disease. Continuous use of oxygen for no less than 15 hours a day for more than 6 months, so that the patient will be in a resting state. Pressure PaO2≥60mmHg and (or) make blood oxygen saturation SaO2≥90%.
Three low flow oxygen supply mode
Divided into: 1 nasal cannula or nasal congestion to give oxygen; 2 simple mask;
Simple mask: The inhaled oxygen concentration is higher, and the slippery effect is better. Disadvantages: The mask is closed, which affects the patient’s eating/sputum expectoration.
What effect should be achieved after oxygen therapy? Are there any quantitative testing indicators?
Observation of physical condition:Cardiovascular system reaction: After oxygen therapy, the patient’s expression changes from indifferent or restless to quiet, clear mind, slower heart rate, improvement of the peripheral circulatory system (lips/nail caps/fingers, etc.), the skin is ruddy, dry and warm, and the purple phenomenon disappears. The performance of oxygen therapy is good.
Respiratory system response: After oxygen therapy, dyspnea/shortness of breath is improved, breathing movement is stable, breathing rate becomes slower, and work of breathing decreases, showing that oxygen therapy has a good effect.
Quantitative data detection:
Transcutaneous oxygen saturation monitoring (SpO2)
The blood oxygen level is more than 90% as normal blood oxygen. Note that lung diseases are accompanied by carbon dioxide retention symptoms. When simply inhaling oxygen, the blood oxygen level is not easy to be too high, not exceeding 95%~96%.
Arterial blood gas test (ABG)
The ideal level after oxygen therapy is: 60~80mmHg
The ultimate goal: to maintain proper tissue oxygen supply with minimal heart and lung work. Correct hypoxemia, reduce chronic hypoxia symptoms, and reduce the increase in heart load caused by hypoxia.
1. Oxygen inhalation for expectant mothers: use an oxygen generator to inhale oxygen
Both adults and children benefit. Pregnant women inhale oxygen 3 times a day for 30 minutes each time to increase blood oxygen concentration and bring it to the fetus through placental blood, which is beneficial to the health of the mother, and the fetus develops better and smarter.
2. Oxygen inhalation for the elderly: Use an oxygen generator to inhale oxygen
Resistant to disease, slow aging and longevity. In old age, physiological functions deteriorate, and various tissues (especially the brain and myocardium) are insufficiently supplied with blood and oxygen. The elderly take oxygen 3 times a day for 30 minutes each time, which can actively prevent the three hidden dangers: stroke, asthma, high blood pressure, disease resistance and aging, prolong life, and improve the quality of life.
3. Inhalation of oxygen by mental workers: use oxygen generator to inhale oxygen
Eliminate fatigue and improve memory. The oxygen consumption of the brain accounts for 20-30% of the body’s oxygen consumption. Oxygen inhalation has a good effect on eliminating mental fatigue, refreshing energy, and improving memory. For example, during the exam preparation period, students take oxygen for 30 minutes a day, which can relieve tension before the test, protect the brain, and significantly improve their scores.
4. Operators inhale oxygen: use oxygen generators to inhale oxygen
Relieve tension and refresh your mind. Fatigue, dizziness, and headaches after long hours of work are all hypoxic reactions. Operators take oxygen twice a day for 20 minutes each time, which can quickly improve hypoxia, relieve tension, refresh their minds, and improve work efficiency.
5. Oxygen inhalation after work: Use an oxygen generator to inhale oxygen
Eliminate fatigue quickly. Work or exercise leads to hypoxia in the body’s metabolism, accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles, soreness and weakness. Oxygen inhalation can quickly improve the body’s hypoxia, eliminate fatigue, restore physical strength, and improve work efficiency.
6. Oxygen inhalation for women: use an oxygen concentrator to inhale oxygen
For health care and beauty, only 20 minutes. Air pollution in modern cities is serious, and women’s appearance and health are threatened to varying degrees. Inhale oxygen for 20 minutes before going to bed every night to promote blood circulation in the skin, speed up the excretion of toxins, replenish moisture, make the skin younger and more elastic, and can maintain health and improve sleep.
