Oxygen is the gas that runs human life. It is no secret that we all need enough of it to function properly. Unfortunately, some people who cannot get enough oxygen naturally due to having breathing disorders. For such cases, oxygen therapy is encouraged. This treatment leads to improved energy levels, as well as sleep. The overall quality of life greatly increases with this treatment. In most cases, oxygen therapy is administrated from two tubes that are connected to an oxygen capsule. The oxygen capsule would pump the level of oxygen needed by a patient into his system through the nose area.
Oxygen therapy is good for people with low oxygen levels. If you constantly feel short of breath, then you need to contact your family doctor because you may be applicable for this treatment. This therapy is highly recommended to patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. People with this disease deal with damaged air sacs in their lungs and oxygen therapy is used to boost the performance of the lungs.
Oxygen therapy does wonders for those who have severe asthma attacks. With this treatment, the chances of getting bad asthma episodes reduce significantly. This therapy is highly effective against pneumonia cases. When infections occupy the lung area, it gets really difficult to breath. Oxygen therapy would provide the oxygen needed by the patient until the virus is treated.
