II .What are the benefits of long-term oxygen therapy

1. Reduce the harm to the body under pollution and harsh environment.

3. Correct hypoxemia, for cardiogenic diseases, pulmonary diseases, diseases with insufficient blood supply to the heart and brain, etc., diseases that need to be corrected for the hypoxic state, increase arterial oxygen partial pressure and oxygen saturation, improve, alleviate the condition and prevent disease development.

4. Relieve bronchospasm, relieve breathing difficulties, and improve respiratory dysfunction.

5. Relieve nerve fatigue, relax body and mind, maintain vigorous energy, improve the oxygen supply of the brain, regulate the function of the cerebral nervous system, and promote sleep.
