Oxygen Therapy

Oxygen therapy is a treatment that provides extra oxygen to the patient, a gas your body needs to function properly. Normally, our lungs absorb oxygen from the air. However, certain diseases and conditions can prevent our organization from taking the necessary amount of oxygen.

By oxygen we define the administration of medical oxygen as a method of medical intervention in patients. The need for the patient to receive oxygen therapy may be due to chronic respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease commonly known as COPD or even in acute emergency situations that require immediate medical receiving oxygen. We should be aware that oxygen is important for the metabolism of the cells and in turn for proper tissue oxygenation is necessary for the proper functioning of the human organism.

Providing oxygen for the patient can be achieved in various ways. Either in gaseous form with the oxygen cylinder supply the desired size (1, 3, 5, 10, 20, 50 liters) or also in gas form with the oxygen concentrator supply (Concentrator oxygen Purchase or rental of oxygen concentrator per month with medical prescription  of the patient – (our company is affiliated with all the pension funds of the country). Oxygen is considered as a medicine and can be prescribed by doctors.

The oxygen concentrator is the most popular choice in home oxygen therapy and works with the electric current, provides continuous flow of oxygen (93% + – 3%) in the patient 24 hours / 7 days a week. Also oxygen can be provided to patients and in liquid form.  Liquid oxygen is supplied with the transfer canister at home. In most cases patients choose one of the three above oxygen extraction processes. Upon receiving the patient oxygen can breathe better now and strongly feel a sense of wellness.

Oxygen therapy to be  succeeded needs to go through a medical pressure regulator associated with the oxygen cylinder. Oxygen gauge can control the flow of oxygen pressure (high or low pressure) which would channel the oxygen cylinder.

Patients receiving oxygen through oxygen nasal cannulas or through oxygen mask, depending on what best suits the patient. The oxygen nasal cannulas is a thin tube about 2 meters with two small nozzles that apply appropriately to the patient’s nostrils. . Alternative oxygen receiving method is the oxygen mask that covers the mouth and nose of the patient.

Oxygen therapy therefore helps many patients to live normally without affecting their daily lives and their quality of life. Oxygen therapy also achieves reduction of dyspnea and fatigue. There even is a clear improvement of sleep in some people who have sleep-related breathing disorders.
Increases end significantly the lifetime of some people suffering from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
