worldwide oxygen suppliers

The impact of Covid-19 on lung function has been thrown into sharp relief in the media since the middle of March.  Like many other worldwide oxygen suppliers, ANP Pharma has never been busier helping to support patients thought the critical phase of Covid -19 when their airways and breathing are compromised. 

Why do people require oxygen?

Oxygen therapy is prescribed for patients who cannot get enough oxygen on their own.  There are a number of reasons why this can be the case and Covid-19 is a case in point.  Covid-19 enters the epithelial cells in the lungs to cause damage and some people develop acute respiratory distress syndrome or ARDS.  A percentage of patients with Covid-19 will go on to develop ARDS or pneumonia which can be fatal.  There are also other lung conditions which prevent the lungs from absorbing oxygen and these include:-

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD
  • Asthma
  • Heart failure
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Lung disease

These conditions and diseases all prevent the lungs from absorbing enough oxygen which impacts systemically on key vital functions within the body causing considerable detriment and complications to the life of the patient.  There are different ways to administer oxygen therapies and these include:-

  • Oxygen gas
  • Liquid oxygen
  • Oxygen concentrators
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

The most common delivery method for the patient is via a nasal cannula which is a tube that runs through both nostrils but there is also the nonrebreather mask and CPAP – Continuous Positive Airway Pressure.
