Early cases of acute infectious respiratory syndrome treated with photobiomodulation, diagnosis and intervention: Two case reports

Clin Case Rep. 2021 Mar 15;9(4):2429-2437. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.4058. eCollection 2021 Apr.


PBMT using 630 + 660 nm wavelengths transcutaneously at 7 cm above chest area irradiating lungs and heart regions of patients with acute, infectious respiratory syndrome alleviated their respiratory symptoms, mitigated pulmonary inflammation and hypoxia. PBMT could prevent more severe respiratory distress requiring emergency care and reduce the strain on healthcare. This case report's clinical experience can be the basis of future research evaluating oxygen saturation levels pre- and post-PBMT.
