Following Knowledge About The Oxygen Therapy

Jul 03, 2020

The role of oxygen therapy is to correct the hypoxemia of the patient by inhaling oxygen and break the hypoxic state, thereby improving the patient's ability to live and tolerate activities, and alleviating the symptoms of hypoxia including shortness of breath, fatigue, and mental distress. And relieve pulmonary vasospasm, improve hyperviscosemia, slow down the deterioration of lung function, reduce pulmonary artery pressure, delay the progress of pulmonary heart disease, thereby improving the patient's survival rate, improving quality of life, and improving neuropsychiatric status.

 

As for family oxygen therapy, I believe everyone is not new to it. Today, the editor of MEDJOY  oxygen concentrator is here to spread the knowledge of long-term family oxygen therapy.

What is long-term home oxygen therapy?

 

Long-term home oxygen therapy refers to patients who need long-term low-flow oxygen in their daily lives. They must use oxygen continuously for not less than 15 hours a day for more than 6 months to increase the oxygen partial pressure to 60 mmHg and make the blood oxygen saturation greater than 90%.


Who needs long-term home oxygen therapy?

*Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

*Acute and chronic respiratory failure caused by various reasons

*Patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, such as coronary heart disease, angina pectoris, and chronic heart failure

*Chronic respiratory insufficiency


What are the benefits of long-term home oxygen therapy?

*Relieve symptoms of hypoxemia

*Relieve pulmonary hypertension and delay right heart failure

*Contribute to lung rehabilitation, reduce the number of hospitalizations, and save medical expenses

* Improve quality of life and prolong life

 

Lets talk about the selection and correct use of different oxygen therapy devices.

 

Current status of oxygen therapy

 

*Oxygen therapy is one of the most common clinical treatments.

*The purpose of oxygen therapy: maintain adequate tissue oxygen supply, reduce cardiopulmonary workload, and improve hypoxic symptoms.

*The home oxygen generator is purely physical oxygen generator, suitable for long-term home oxygen absorption.

*Oxygen treatment value: the flow of household oxygen generator is above 3 liters.

 

Oxygen therapy should correct hypoxemia, but also avoid hyperoxia. A retrospective study showed that the case fatality rate and PaO2 showed a "u" curve correlation, that is, both low and high oxygen partial pressure case fatality rates were high and were independent risk factors for hospital deaths. Only moderate blood oxygen partial pressure has the lowest case fatality rate.

 

Correct oxygen therapy

 

I. Oxygen therapy principles

Choose a medical grade intelligent safety monitoring system oxygen generator to give oxygen flow for treatment.

 

II. Oxygen therapy goals


The oxygen saturation is above 90% and the oxygen partial pressure is above 60mmHg.

The medical molecular sieve oxygen generator belongs to 2 types of medical devices. The national standard is commonly called medical 93 oxygen. The oxygen concentration (oxygen concentration at the outlet of the oxygen generator) is 93%±3, and the outlet pressure is 0.04--0.07Mpa. Suitable for long-term home oxygen therapy.

The oxygen supply/oxygen bottle in the hospital center is pure oxygen, the outlet oxygen concentration is 99.99%, and the outlet pressure is above 0.1Mpa, which is not suitable for family long-term oxygen therapy.

 

The correct emphasis of oxygen therapy is to achieve the goal of oxygen therapy. However, through the choice of a suitable oxygen generator, it can ensure the goal of oxygen therapy, while taking into account the patient's comfort.

 

So, how should we choose the oxygen generator? What kind of oxygen generator can quickly and correctly achieve the effect of oxygen therapy? Here we have to mention the Metso oxygen generator!

 

According to the new national safety standards and international quality standards, it is recommended that every user who uses an oxygen generator for oxygen therapy oxygen care must purchase an oxygen generator with the following standards:

 

 

1: The product should fully implement the new national safety standards

 

2: The product should be fully equipped with automatic monitoring of oxygen concentration

 

3: The product can be operated continuously for a long time without attenuation of oxygen concentration

 

4: The manufacturer should have international standard quality system control procedures

 

5: After-sales service should be timely and the cost of maintenance is affordable

 

Medjoy oxygen generator has all the above purchase standards, please rest assured to buy.
