Oxygen therapy is the use of oxygen as a medical treatment.
This can be done for a variety of purposes including low blood oxygen caused by chronic conditions.
Oxygen may be administered in various ways.
In our clinic, oxygen will be applied before/during laser treatment through special nasal cannula to enhance effects of laser therapy.
Normal air is about 21% oxygen by volume, it is essential for cell metabolism, and in turn, tissue oxygenation is essential for all normal physiological functions.
The use of oxygen in medicine becomes common around 1917. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system.
