Oxygen therapy

The air we breathe is 21% oxygen. This vital gas can be used in treatment with a medical prescription.

What are the diseases treated with
oxygen therapy?

These include cystic fibrosis and lung cancer. There is also a neurological indication for cluster headache. However, the most common disease is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD. COPD is a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease mainly caused by high tobacco consumption. 80% of patients on long-term oxygen therapy suffer from COPD.

Scientific studies demonstrate the effectiveness of treatment in the following areas:

  • Elimination of arterial hypoxemia and the resulting tissue hypoxia
  • Regression of pulmonary arterial hypertension and prevention of right-sided heart failure
  • Fewer hospitalisations due to exacerbation of respiratory failure
  • Improved physical and neuropsychological performance

Treatment with oxygen therapy improves the patient quality of life by increasing the oxygen level in the blood.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), some frequent symptoms:

  • Cough, mucus
  • Breathlessness
  • Wheeze
  • Lack of energy
  • etc.
