Hyperbaric oxygen for insomnia
Sleep disorders can seriously affect the physical and mental health of the elderly. Hyperbaric oxygen has a regulating effect on the nervous system and can rapidly increase blood oxygen levels and improve brain hypoxia. Insomnia patients are unable to rest their brains sufficiently, which inevitably leads to an increase in brain oxygen consumption. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can increase the oxygen content in the body by about 10 times, increase the blood supply to the cerebral arteries and effectively regulate the cortical excitation-inhibition transition.
Moreover, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can also increase the partial pressure of oxygen in the blood, increase the oxygen content and increase the oxygen diffusion force, alleviate apoptosis and promote the recovery of some damaged cell functions.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for osteoporosis and fractures
The elderly often suffer from osteoporosis and are prone to falls. Once they fall, they are at increased risk of hip fracture and femoral head necrosis, and because of the poor underlying organs of the elderly, surgery is risky and recovery is slow, requiring long periods of time or even prolonged bed rest, with an increased chance of infection and thrombosis after bed rest and a poor prognosis.
Hyperbaric oxygen combined with drug therapy can improve osteoporosis in elderly patients, and by increasing the partial pressure of oxygen in the fracture area, it is conducive to enhancing the activity of osteoclasts and osteoblasts, promoting the regeneration of new blood vessels in the fracture area and accelerating the formation of new bone, as well as promoting the proliferation of fibroblasts and collagen fibre synthesis to facilitate the repair of damaged tissues and wound healing.
Moreover, hyperbaric oxygen can promote the healing of fractures and repair of the femoral head, accelerate the disappearance of pain symptoms, improve post-operative neurological recovery, and restore the walking function of elderly patients as soon as possible.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for cerebral infarction
Cerebral infarction is one of the most common diseases in the elderly and has a high disability rate, which seriously affects the quality of life of patients.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can increase the partial pressure of oxygen, increase the tissue content of oxygen, improve the diffusion rate and effective diffusion distance of oxygen, promote the establishment of collateral circulation and repair of diseased blood vessels, improve cell metabolism, restore brain function and promote the recovery of neurological function of patients with cerebral infarction as soon as possible.
The scope of hyperbaric oxygen therapy is very broad, and these examples listed above are only a very small part of it. As the elderly age, the declining function of various organs and the onset of ageing are the main causes of many chronic diseases in the body, and lack of oxygen accelerates the ageing process.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can improve the state of hypoxia in the body, slow down the ageing process, and reduce the mortality and disability rate of chronic diseases in the elderly such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and fractures, reduce complications, improve cognitive impairment and insomnia, relieve chronic pain and improve the quality of life of the elderly.
