Oxygen therapy has made great development in the fields of prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of diseases, and its clinical application is also very extensive. It has been found that oxygen inhalation can treat a variety of brain diseases from various aspects such as blood, metabolism, and cells. In this paper, we will review the previous studies and propose future research ideas based on the potential mechanism of oxygen inhalation through brain structure and brain metabolism in the treatment of various brain diseases.
