Breathing hydrogen-oxygen mixture decreases inspiratory effort

In Cardiovascular, Human studies by CHESS

Hydrogen-oxygen mixture (H2-O2) may reduce airway resistance in patients with acute severe tracheal stenosis, yet data supporting the clinical use of H2-O2 are insufficient. The authors evaluated the efficacy and safety of breathing H2-O2 in acute severe tracheal stenosis. Thirty-five consecutive patients with severe acute tracheal stenosis were recruited in this prospective self-control study. Air, H2-O2 and O2 inhalation was …

Hydrogen gas inhalation after myocardial infarction

In Cardiovascular, Human studies by CHESS

Hydrogen gas inhalation (HI) reduced infarct size and mitigated adverse left ventricular (LV) remodeling in a rat model of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The authors designed a prospective, open-label, rater-blinded clinical pilot study in patients experiencing ST-elevated MI (STEMI). The 20 patients with an initial diagnosis of STEMI were assigned to either an HI group (1.3% H2with 26% oxygen) or …
