Oxygen Therapy

The Oxygen Therapy method was developed by Prof. Manfed von Ardenne

The aim was to increase the oxygen concentration within tissues. This can however not be achieved by simply breathing oxygen due to the fact the haemoglobin has a natural maximum amount of oxygen intake at which point no more oxygen is being transported into the tissues. The usage of ionised oxygen can somehow bypass and short-circuit this barrier and by directly transporting the oxygen to the cells. We make use of this therapy especially on patients with circulatory disorders, hearing loss, tinnitus and balance disorders. This therapy has proven itself with immune-deficiency syndromes even though we recommend it in combination with autohaemotherapy.

History of Oxygen therapy

Although the central role of oxygen as an energy supplier was known in the 18th century, the lack of technical possibilities made it impossible for it to be used for therapy. This was only possible in the20th century where oxygen inhalation was used to treat acute or chronic lung infections both ambulatory and stationary. The turbulent development of anaesthesia and intensive medicine after WW I led not only to several scientific discoveries involving the interactions of oxygen, cells regeneration and blood circulation but also to the usage of oxygen therapy in emergency medicine. Prof. Ardenne could portray in his several publications in the 80s the positive effects of Oxygen Therapy.


The structure and function of cells is highly dependent on the energy it derives from oxygen. A shortage of oxygen, leads to a decrease in cell function and could even lead to the demise of the cells. This may lead to an organ failure depending on the cell responsiveness to oxygen shortage. The brain meanwhile constitutes on of the most sensitive organs of the body. Oxygen shortages is usually caused by abnormal changes in the long path from the lungs to the cells e.g abnormalities in the lung tissues, cavity walls, the constitution of cavities or the docking of the oxygen to haemoglobin or its discharge into the tissues.

Therapeutic principles of the oxygen therapy

The aim of the oxygen therapy is to be able to increase the arterial oxygen partial pressure and decrease the venal partial pressure. This way the chronic oxygen shortage could be counteracted, which if left untreated could lead to an non-proportional swelling of the cells, constriction of blood vessels especially in the capillary area which may lead to cell demise. The process involves three consecutive steps:

  1. Administration of vitamins to improve oxygen utilisation and the formation of free radicals.
  2. Inhalation of CO2- free oxygen mixture with a flow of 5-30 I/min.
  3. Improved circulation through heart minute volumes with the help of light physical and mental strain.

A minimum of 10-18 sessions are required to achieve a long-lasting effect in chronic ailments. Acute illnesses such as hearing loss etc could be cured with less inhalations.
