Another common use of home oxygen is for Congestive Heart Failure (CHF).
Congestive heart failure (CHF) is when the heart does not pump enough blood (oxygen) to the body. The cells in the body need oxygen and therefore an additional flow of oxygen is required. This can be delivered through home oxygen therapy. Heart failure is on the increase as a result of successes in treating heart attacks and other cardiac conditions. As people with damaged hearts are living longer, they become more susceptible to heart failure.
Home Oxygen Therapy has also been found to be efficacious for cluster headaches, wound healing, and many other cardio-respiratory conditions. Check with your doctor if you think home oxygen may be right for you.
