Hydrogen/oxygen mixed gas inhalation improves disease severity and dyspnea in patients with Coronavirus disease

Signal modulation by hydrogen

The Clinical Trial from Prof. Dr. Zhong Nanshan has some first results published.

As expected, molecular hydrogen ( this time mixed with oxygen ) at high flow rates ( up to 3 lpm ) for up to 24 hours per day is reducing all kinds of bad effects caused by the Corona virus.

From the study below: "The therapeutic effects of H2-O2 became significant as early as days 2 and 3 and the amelioration of most respiratory symptoms persisted till the end-of-treatment, which again cannot be readily interpreted by miscellaneous supportive therapies including oxygen therapy."

Study from May 2020: Hydrogen/oxygen mixed gas inhalation improves disease severity and dyspnea in patients with Coronavirus disease 2019 in a recent multicenter, open-label clinical trial.

Follow-up studies in COVID-19 recovered patients

The after effects of COVID-19 infections are scary.

Lungs => Lung fibrosis

Kidneys => Pyroptosis and cell death

Heart => Myocardial infarction

Brain => Inability of smell and might also trigger neurodegenerative diseases

Eyes => Conjuctivitis

Mind => Psychological stress

Liver => Change in levels of liver enzymes

Gastrointestinal Tract => Bleeding, nausea, vomiting.

From the study below: "It would be helpful to evaluate any changes in the acquired immune function, blood parameters, psychological factors, biochemical factors, lung, brain, eye, kidney, heart and gastrointestinal (GI) tract functions over the course of time."

Coronavirus May Be a Blood Vessel Disease

A respiratory virus infecting blood cells and circulating through the body is virtually unheard of.

Hydrogen studies again suggest that help is available.

H2 has long-lasting antioxidant and anti-aging effects on vascular endothelial cells through the Nrf2 pathway, even after transient exposure to H2.

hydrogen gas station
To lower the lung inflammation of the covid-19 patients who are still able to breathe, doctors should add cheap hydrogen to the oxygen therapy. This can reduce the demand of ventilators.

A Hydrogen - Oxygen blend has been recommended as assistive oxygen therapy by the Chinese Government's New Coronavirus Pneumonia Diagnosis and Treatment Program ( Trial Version 7 ). Prof. Dr. Zhong Nanshan discovered the SARS virus and currently performs a human hydrogen-oxygen trial with over 1,000 COVID-19 patients. He is the Chinese equivalent of Dr. Fauci.

As a post COVID-19 recovery, hydrogen will mitigate the side effects and lower the long term damage. Click the search terms below to see the abundance of research with molecular hydrogen, all listed on the National Institute of Health website.
These are ALL COVID-19 symptoms:
Hydrogen reduces Inflammation. Hydrogen selectively reduces Cytotoxic oxygen radicals. Hydrogen reduces damage from Sepsis. Hydrogen reduces damage from Ischemia-Reperfusion. Hydrogen has Neuro-protective properties. Hydrogen helps with COPD. Hydrogen reduces tissue damage from Cardiac arrest. Hydrogen reduces the Damage from ventilators.

March '20:
Hydrogen-oxygen mixed gas ( hydroxy gas ) removes shortness of breath caused by the COVID-19 lung inflammation.

Hydroxy Gas has already been endorsed for COVID-19 therapy by both the Chinese Government, EU organizations and UK Doctors.

Use of mixed hydrogen and oxygen (hydroxy) gas inhalation for the treatment of COVID-19.

H2mex concludes with researchers that hydrogen-oxygen inhalation will reduce any inflammation. The use of hydroxy gas inhalation will free urgent needed ventilators for more critical cases. The inhalation method enables the patient to breathe normal and recover with less complications.

H2mex Situation Awareness

follow me into a complex story:

Cancun March 30: The predictable chaos will arrive in less then 2 weeks.

  • Medical personal will have shortages of staff, ventilators, personal protective equipment, beds and longer shifts.
  • Overwhelming counts of patients waiting for treatment in the corridors and parking lots of hospitals.
  • Mexico is at the end of the line... Ordering Ventilators becomes impossible because every country east of Mexico ordered earlier.
  • Soon all over the Republic arrives the moment, when increasing counts of ill persons will force doctors to make the decision of who gets the needed, limited Ventilators and who not.
  • Nursing home deaths will increment disproportional. Non attended funerals and no cremation will be the new normal. ( see Italy and Spain )
  • Shipping companies will have delivery problems because of staff shortages.
  • Supply chains can't supply.

NYC alone calculates a need for up to 100,000 ventilators.

Mexico has 2,000 and needs urgently a plan to cope with this projected challenges.

An inexpensive solution to reduce the exponential increase of needed ventilators.

Hydroxy electrolyzer are without FDA or COFEPRIS certificates. Regardless, in China, South Korea and Japan they are used in hospitals to remove COVID 19 lung inflammation. Patients can breathe again.

These machines have no need for oxygen cylinders and supply piping. As a bonus, they are also oxygen generators.

Plug in the wall outlet, top up with distilled water and you have a completely non invasive method to restore patient's lung capacity by supplying oxygen ( we need it ) and hydrogen ( keep the inflammation in check ).

Simple to use nose cannulas. Anyone who still can breathe will get relief from this generators.

Hydroxy machines will free the medical ventilators for the really critical cases.

The scary reality is that Mexico needs hundreds of thousands of hydroxy generators in a couple of weeks when all hell breaks loose.

I have the ears of hydrogen experts all over the world and have all the necessary experience with electrolyzer technologies. I gladly assist helping Mexico to organize a plan to reduce the demand for ventilators.

Last point:
I would not object to anyone who grabs this idea and makes it a reality tomorrow and thus saves lives that I see perishing due to continued inactivity.
But I would appreciate a seat on the board of the company that pulls this off.


Press Release going out in the UK media:


The coronavirus continues to spread globally at unprecedented speed and the need to find new and effective medical treatments to alleviate the symptoms as well as a cure grows stronger.

Businessman Mark Kent from the UK says that portable hydroxy gas machines could help in the fight to reduce the number of hospital admissions and potentially enable an earlier return home, thus freeing up hospital beds at both ends. However, all attempts that he and several prominent medical professionals have made to raise the profile of these machines with the government are hitting a stone wall amidst an almost single-minded NHS procurement drive to obtain more ventilators.

I’m at my wit's end; we have been trying 24/7 to get through to the government and NHS decision-makers without success. We have contacted every Member of Parliament in the country, some of which have been extremely helpful and concerned for their constituents but even the contacts they have obtained for us have failed to get us anywhere other than running around what seems to be a perpetual loop to the department trying to procure parts for ventilators. Because hydroxy machines are neither ventilators nor parts for them this is a dead-end loop.

We urgently need this type of portable 'first responder' type of treatment mass-produced and out there to help alleviate the symptoms at home at a time before people get too critical. It seems clear that the fear of a hospital bed not being available and with no other avenue being available to help alleviate some of the symptoms at home may well be leading to more hospital admissions than would otherwise be the case.

Expert Dr. Zhong Nanshan from China who was the first to discover the Sars virus reports that in Wuhan, China; administering a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gas has now become a front line treatment with positive responses from the latest trials that now involve over 1,000 COVID-19 patients.

Hydrogen is not a cure for COVID-19 but is well known for reducing the chronic lung inflammation that along with viscous secretions is causing the high death rate as reduced inflammation gives the oxygen a chance of reaching the lungs but – and it’s a big but - this gas mix cannot be delivered outside of the controlled conditions of a hospital when it’s from medical cylinders and our hospitals are becoming overloaded.

Portable hydroxy machines, however, can supply exactly the same gasses for safe and simple home use or administration by nursing staff at medical centres where patients are in distress but not quite hospital critical. If used early enough they have the possibility of preventing many from going critical in the first place and thus potentially help out our overloaded NHS facilities and staff at a minimal cost. They can be mass-produced, used time and time again and at a cost of less than a one day stay in hospital.

We need to somehow get this through to the decision-makers. I fully understand that everyone is on major overload at the moment but the use of these machines may well help ease things significantly at minimal cost. We have tried in every way we know to make any significant contact and are reluctantly having to go public to try to get a focus on this type of machine.
