Life can bring many challenges and coping with a long-term illness can seem to affect every part of your life. Managing and self-management is the key to improving your well-being and coping with flare-ups and challenges.
Oxygen therapy is one major part to this and understanding the treatment and how it works will help you. Many people will feel some anxiety towards using medical oxygen long-term. We all need oxygen as this is our ‘fuel’ and if there is a lack of oxygen in the blood oxygen therapy is needed to keep the body functioning.
If there is a chronic lack of oxygen this can lead to fatigue, problems with memory and concentration or swelling of the legs amongst other complications.
Medical oxygen helps to keep your organs functioning sufficiently and maintain blood oxygen levels to what is needed for you to maintain a normal life.
Oxygen therapy is beneficial long-term, some may need it for 15 hours a day or whilst sleeping but you will feel the effects long-term to help you feel less tired, more movement even with exercising and better sleep.

The Global Oxygen Therapy Device Market is growing fast because of the rising prevalence of lung, respiratory, heart and other diseases. The number is growing across the world because of the changing lifestyle.
Oxygen is required by cells to do work. Oxygen therapy is required for the supplement of oxygen in body through external mean to the people who have respiratory disorder. The oxygen therapy is much required by the people who have chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) for long term use.
The levels of oxygen are checked by the oximeter, which checks levels indirectly. The oximeter is a small device which gets clipped into person’s body parts. The levels are checked before giving oxygen therapy so that doctors gets an idea whether patients will get benefited with the oxygen therapy. If the person is found with the low levels of oxygen then he/she can be the one applicant for the oxygen therapy.
Generally, the patients of Asthma, Heart diseases, Sleeping apnea, lung diseases, COPD and other respiratory issues can get benefited from the oxygen therapy as it enhances the breathing power and patient can stay more active for long. The symptoms like weakness, headaches, fatigue, irritability and more will be reduced. The oxygen therapy is also helpful for the children with chronic lung conditions.

In the 1930s, when subways were being dug in Europe, there was a fairly high incidence of the decompression condition known as Caisson’s disease, most likely caused by blast exposure. And in that group, of patients there was a high incidence of suicide.
Today, we usually treat a similar decompression condition called the bends, which occasionally happens to scuba divers, with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). After such treatment, there is no increased incidence of suicide.
In William Maxfield’s (one of the nation’s foremost experts in hyperbaric medicine) new book, “The Oxygen Cure,” there is data about use of hyperbaric oxygen to treat strokes. You can go to the website Bcenter.com and look up the response of Valerie Greene who was 30 when she had her stroke. At that time she could not walk or talk. Today she can, and is now a spokesman for the Stroke Association.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has also been shown to help with chemotherapy, infection, radiation therapy effects, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, emphysema, asthma, ADHD, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiac disease, migraine headaches, vertigo, early dementia, vision loss, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and of course traumatic brain injury and PTSD.
William S. Maxfield, M.D., is a board-certified physician in hyperbaric medicine, radiology, and nuclear medicine. He is one of the nation’s foremost experts in hyperbaric medicine, pioneering its use to treat wounds, brain trauma, multiple sclerosis, and other conditions.
HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) is merging as an advancement in treating diseases such as wounds, infections, Alzheimer’s and infertility to help towards healing. This is such a great advancement that can help many people today and is likely to grow in these types of devices.
HBOT is widely being used especially with people who have diabetes due to the complications of poor circulation which in many cases leads to loses of limbs.
How does HBOT work?
The patient inhales the oxygen which stimulates the atmospheric pressing of being 33 feet below sea level and boosts the body’s natural healing process. Recently this type of therapy has been used as an alternative for various conditions like infertility and Alzheimer’s disease.
HBOT helps provide more oxygen to the body’s tissues so they could work efficiently. Additional oxygen can enhance the healing of damaged tissue, boost tissue function and fight infection.
It is an exciting time for medicine and look forward to seeing this treatment heal and save many more patients.
