Currently, inhalation of molecular hydrogen gas is being used in at least four clinical studies .
Recent public reports by China’s National Health Commission and the Chinese CDC and Prevention have recommended effective oxygen therapy measures as an element of general treatment in patients with COVID19 penumonia ( novel coronavirus pneumonia).2,3 A ratio of (2 H2 to 1 O2 ; molecular hydrogen 2 :1 oxygen) was stated as the composition of the gas mixture for inhalation. While high oxygen levels are administered due to apparent lung dysfunction in coronavirus 2019 – COVID19, adding H2 to oxygen for a breathing mixture raises interesting questions because molecular hydrogen may have beneficial effects by itself.
Dr. Zhong Nanshan, the epidemiologist who discovered the SARS coronavirus in 2003, recently recommended the inhalation of molecular hydrogen for COVID19 patients based on the preliminary clinical data .
Molecular hydrogen treatment resulted in significant amelioration of dyspnea in most patients with COVID19 in the pilot
Correspondingly, molecular hydrogen inhalation is included as a
recommendation by the National Health Commission of The People’s Republic of China’s protocol for COVID-19 .
Although the research is on inhalation of molecular hydrogen gas, ingestion of molecular hydrogen rich water HRW is also effective, and, at least in some cases, even more effective (molecular hydrogen-rich water generally shows a more prominent effect than molecular hydrogen gas, although the amount of hydrogen taken up by hydrogen water is ~100 times less than that given by hydrogen gas .).
Though we do NOT state hydrogen water is a covid19 treatment, due to the urgency of the COVID19 pandemic, and the
safety and clinical viability of hydrogen water, it might be useful to clinically test hydrogen water thouroughlly for its potential use in treating CoronaVirus 2019 COVID19 patients
