Sleep is an important part of human life. Sleep affects the immune function of the human body. That is to say, without good sleep, there is no healthy body. There are many ways to improve sleep. Here we focus on the improvement of sleep quality by oxygen inhalation in the elderly.
With the increase of age, the sleep of the elderly will gradually decrease. Many elderly people often experience insomnia and dreaminess at night. For many elderly people who suffer from respiratory diseases and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, this Symptoms are more pronounced.
Liu Zhengtang, deputy director of the Geriatrics Center of the Chinese Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, said that the timing of oxygen inhalation for the elderly needs to be well controlled, such as before going to bed, after getting up early, and before and after exercise. Especially in winter, when the elderly cannot sleep at night, oxygen inhalation can significantly improve sleep quality, make it easier to fall asleep, and reduce the incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. The elderly with chronic diseases can inhale oxygen intermittently every day, 0.5-1 liter/minute.
If you also have elderly people at home and also have symptoms of insomnia, you might as well prepare a home oxygen concentrator! If you really plan to buy it, we recommend that you choose an oxygen generator with low noise. After all, it is used by the elderly at night, and a quiet environment is also very important for sleep.
