Oxygen Therapy : All you need to know
About the Case Presentation
Oxygen therapy is a medical intervention that involves the administration of oxygen at a higher concentration than what is present in ambient air to patients with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. It is delivered through various methods, including nasal cannulas, oxygen masks, or ventilators, to improve oxygen saturation in the blood. Oxygen therapy is crucial in managing conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, and severe respiratory distress, helping patients breathe more comfortably and ensuring adequate oxygen supply to vital organs. Treatment duration and oxygen flow rates are tailored to individual patient needs, and close monitoring is essential to optimize therapy effectiveness while avoiding potential complications associated with excessive oxygen levels.
