Supplementary oxygen is routinely administered to patients, even those with adequate oxygen saturations, in the belief that it increases oxygen delivery. However, oxygen delivery depends n...
Long-term oxygen therapy improves survival in patients with severe hypoxia. However, some patients despite this oxygen, experience episodes of low oxygen levels (intermittent hypoxia) espe...
During surgery high concentrations of supplementary oxygen are routinely administrated. However, there is increasing evidence of potential harm with liberal oxygen therapy. The hypothesis ...
Patients with lung disease experiencing difficulty breathing can be treated with oxygen therapy. This involves the delivery of "extra" oxygen by a face-mask or through small tubes placed ...
To evaluate changes in activity based on the use of portable oxygen concentrators combined with standard of care (SOC) long- term oxygen therapy versus SOC long-term oxygen therapy alone a...
Dental practices should have immediate access to oxygen, oxygen tubing and non-rebreathe oxygen masks in the event of an emergency situation. Although oxygen can save lives, if it isn't administered a...
In this essay, we question the sole use of mg/L (ppm) and the term DO (dissolved oxygen) when referring to oxygen supply in water, and discuss reasons for also reporting the partial pressure of oxygen...
Despite the introduction of Oxygen Alert Cards, guidelines and audits, oxygen therapy remains overused in NHS practice, and this may lead to iatrogenic mortality. This pilot study aimed to examine the...
Patients who are undergoing mechanical ventilation in the intensive care unit (ICU) often receive a high fraction of inspired oxygen (Fio) and have a high arterial oxygen tension. The conservative use...
High oxygen sensitivity (the slope of the Stern-Volmer plot reaches 0.73/μM) is achieved with a phosphorescence indicator, gadolinium-hematoporphyrin monomethyl ether (Gd-HMME), by decreasing the ext...
