Hyperbaric oxygen hoods are designed to help patients recover from respiratory distress and avoid risks associated with other devices. The arrival of the Cornovirus (COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in a rising demand for hyperbaric oxygen hoods worldwide.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Hoods
As respiratory illnesses rise, so does the demand for high-impact, low-cost, non-invasive ventilation. Oxygen hoods are plastic, oxygen-filled domes or bubbles that fit like a helmet around a patient’s head.
Ventilation via Oxygen Hoods
UChicago Medicine, a health system affiliated with the University of Chicago, reports a couple of studies that followed critically ill patients requiring mechanical breathing assistance. Patients were randomly assigned oxygen hoods or standard face masks.
The initial study, in 2016, found that patients using oxygen hoods instead of face masks were able to breathe better and avoid intubation with a ventilator machine. They also spent less time in intensive care and had better survival.
One year later, researchers followed up with the same patients. Those who received ventilation via oxygen hoods “were more likely to be functionally independent than those given a face mask, and spent more days living at home.”
The University’s data and safety monitoring board concluded that oxygen hoods “consistently demonstrated multiple advantages, particularly the reduced need to intubate patients and longer-term reduction in mortality,” said pulmonologist John P. Kress, MD, a senior author of the study.
Benefits didn’t stop there: Oxygen hoods are less likely to leak, which enables clinicians to increase air pressure inside the hood, improving oxygen levels, Kress explained. Additionally, oxygen hoods are easier for patients to tolerate because there’s nothing pressing on their faces, and they can see well enough through it to read, talk or watch TV.
