Hydrogen inhalation therapy

Hydrogen inhalation therapy, also widely known as hydrogen breathing therapy, is the breathing-in of hydrogen gas or molecules for therapeutic purposes. The scientific benefits and uses of hydrogen inhalation therapy are as follow:

  • Treatment of novel coronavirus pneumonia:

Hydrogen inhalation therapy has shown anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory ability in many clinical and scientific trials, and its application is recommended in the latest Chinese novel coronavirus pneumonia treatment guidelines. Several research studies and clinical experiments have revealed the surprising finding that hydrogen gas may protect the extrapulmonary organs and lungs from pathological stimuli in novel coronavirus pneumonia patients.

Inhaled hydrogen gas effectively reduces ventilator-induced lung injury-associated inflammatory responses, at both a local and systemic level, via its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-apoptotic effects.

  • Benefits in Sepsis:

Sepsis, a multiple organ dysfunction syndromes, is the leading cause of death in critically ill patients. Hydrogen gas inhalation significantly improves the survival rate and organ damage in sepsis

  • Regulation of autophagy:

Hydrogen inhalation therapy plays a dual role in the regulation of autophagy. Under hydrogen regulation, autophagy can be activated when protein aggregation becomes toxic and blocked once excessive autophagy causes damage to tissues. Hydrogen therapy also reduces apoptosis in neonatal hypoxia-ischemia

  • Kidney protection:

Hydrogen inhalation therapy also appears to be very beneficial for renal protection and inflammation reduction. Several research studies have proved it.

  • Neuroprotective function:

Hydrogen inhalation therapy is beneficial for the brain. The hydrogen used in the therapy is neuroprotective and preserves cerebrovascular reactivity.

  • Anti-oxidant properties:

Hydrogen inhalation therapy has selective antioxidant properties that protect the brain against ischemia/reperfusion injury and stroke by specifically neutralizing hydroxyl radicals and peroxynitrite.

  • Conclusion:

Hydrogen inhalation therapy has significant importance in improving the health of patients. The newly designed inhalers, KENCOS4, which are portable and lightweight, can be extremely beneficial for getting the therapy.
