“This supplemental oxygen supply is indicated when the oxygen level in the blood drops to a critical level”, explains to franceinfo Professor Djillali Annane, head of the intensive care unit at Raymond Poincaré hospital, in Garches, in Hauts-de-Seine. He provides details after the placement under reinforced oxygen therapy of the Minister of Culture, Roselyne Bachelot, hospitalized after contracting Covid-19.

“There are many ways to deliver this extra oxygen”, continues Djillali Annane. “In some patients, because the oxygen level in the blood is too low, we use what is called high flow oxygen. This is what is meant by enhanced oxygen.”

“You are using a device that is not a device that helps you breathe.”

“It’s not a fan”, insists the professor. “It is a device that will allow very large quantities of oxygen to be generated at a very high rate that we will administer through small nasal glasses that are placed in the nostrils.”

“It is something that is used routinely and which in the majority of cases does not require intubation and mechanical ventilation”, specifies Djillali Annane.
