There are so many benefits to breathe oxygen for people.Many diseases, especially respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases, or carbon monoxide poisoning, it can improve the patient's condition through oxygen inhalation (also called oxygen therapy). It is an important first aid, but if the oxygen inhalation method is not correct, Can bring disadvantage to the patient. Do you know how to breathe oxygen properly?
Under what circumstances do you need oxygen?
Anyone with respiratory diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive emphysema, can take oxygen therapy. Others such as heart failure, ulcer bleeding, gas poisoning, etc. require oxygen. It can be said that with the improvement of people's awareness of oxygen therapy at home, oxygen has entered all aspects of people's lives.
What equipment is needed for oxygen inhalation?
There is also a special article on the front of the oxygen absorber, which is quite comprehensive. To sum up, household oxygen absorbers mainly include oxygen bags, oxygen tanks, oxygen cylinders, and home oxygen generators. The most commonly used is the home oxygen generator, because it is more convenient and more affordable.
What should we pay attention to when taking oxygen?
1. A nasal catheter or nasal plug is required on the oxygen inhalation device and then inserted into the patient's nostrils. After inserting the nasal catheter into the patient's nasal cavity, it must be fixed to avoid falling off. If the oxygen mask is used, the oxygen absorption effect is better.
2. When oxygen is absorbed, the larger the oxygen flow rate, the better. In some cases, high-flow oxygen is harmful to the patient.
3, master the oxygen inhalation time: each time the oxygen inhalation, if you use a nasal catheter to absorb oxygen, it is recommended to inhale oxygen for 30-60 minutes each time, if you use a closed double-tube mask to absorb oxygen, it is recommended to inhale for 15-30 minutes each time.
4. Don't be superstitious about high pressure oxygen.
Oxygen inhalation can indeed improve the symptoms of hypoxia, but here is not what high-pressure oxygen, and the oxygen produced by ordinary household oxygen generators can meet the needs of ordinary patients, and does not require high-pressure oxygen. Hyperbaric oxygen is generally used for special needs.
