What is a hyperbaric oxygen chamber? what is the difference between it and an ordinary oxygen concentrator? What is the difference in cost, and what is the effect of treatment? I think this is what everyone is concerned about.
Hyperbaric oxygen chamber: As the name implies, it absorbs pure oxygen in an environment that is one atmosphere higher than normal pressure to achieve the purpose of treatment., and the oxygen concentration in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber is also higher than that produced by ordinary oxygen generators. It needs to be carried out in a special hyperbaric oxygen chamber, and requires professional supervision throughout the process. The requirements are very strict, and the cost of single use is very high. So it is only used in medical institutions. Hyperbaric oxygen chamber can be used for first aid, rescuing patients, treating various diseases such as carbon monoxide poisoning, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and recovery after surgery. The effect of treatment is better, and the patient can recover faster. Here are more advantages:
①The hyperbaric oxygen in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber can increase the physical dissolved oxygen in the blood and tissues, and realize bloodless life, that is, the red blood cells in the animal are removed. Under the hyperbaric oxygen, the life of the animal is stable, but the normal pressure oxygen cannot do this.
②Hyperbaric oxygen chamber Hyperbaric oxygen can increase the penetrating power of oxygen, which can relieve local tissue and cell hypoxia caused by vascular obstruction, vasospasm, or cell edema.
③Hyperbaric oxygen in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber can increase the oxygen reserve in the tissue, which can improve the body's tolerance to hypoxia, so that the body can get through the dangerous period to gain time. Under hyperbaric oxygen, cardiac surgery can be performed without cardiopulmonary bypass.
④The hyperbaric oxygen in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber can kill anaerobic bacteria and has a good alleviation effect on gas gangrene.
⑤Hyperbaric oxygen chamber Hyperbaric oxygen can compress the gas confined in the body, and has a unique effect on relieving air bubbles blocking the respiratory tract when irritating gas poisoning, relieving decompression sickness, intestinal flatulence, and intestinal air sac edema.
Because atmospheric oxygen cannot do or is ineffective on the above points, and the atmospheric oxygen chamber hyperbaric oxygen has the above direct effects, thus regulating various systems in the body, such as slightly increasing blood pressure, promoting endocrine and glucose utilization, enhancing the major functions of the body, regulating the cell cycle, enhancing the effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, etc., are not available in normobaric oxygen.
It is safe to use a home oxygen generator for oxygen therapy, and there are no technical requirements. As long as the oxygen inhalation time does not exceed 24 hours, there will be no side effects.
When using a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, special maintenance is required, and the oxygen inhalation time is determined according to the patient's condition. It is not good for some patients if they have a shorter time on oxygen inhalation, while it is bad for other patients if they have a longer time on oxygen inhalation.
The cost of hyperbaric oxygen chamber equipment is very high, and the volume is large, which is unbearable for ordinary consumers. Only large medical institutions such as hospitals are equipped with it. The cost to the patient is also relatively high. Similarly, the treatment effect is also very good, the effect is also fast.
The current price of household oxygen concentrators can be afforded by ordinary families, individuals and units, and its small size makes it easy to carry and move, and it has become a mainstream device at present. It is favored by the majority of consumers.
