Use of Oxygen at the End of Life: Attitudes, Beliefs, and Practices in Wisconsin.

Oxygen therapy for the management of breathlessness remains controversial and little information is available regarding the practice of using oxygen at end of life. Oxygen use in end-of-life care is increasingly being questioned, while the use of oxygen for routine "comfort care" at end of life continues.


Is Subsurface Oxygen Necessary for the Electrochemical Reduction of CO2 on Copper?

It has recently been proposed that subsurface oxygen is crucial for the adsorption and subsequent electroreduction of CO2 on copper. Using density functional theory, we have studied the stability and diffusion of subsurface oxygen in single crystals of copper exposing (111) and (100) facets. Oxygen is at least 1.5 eV more stable on the surface than beneath it for both crystal orientations; interstitial sites are too small to accommodate oxygen. The rate of atomic oxygen diffusion from one layer below a Cu(1...

Oxygen Sensing Based on the Yellowing of Newspaper.

Newspaper is known to turn yellow over time. We show here that this yellowing process is sensitive to oxygen when ex-posed to UV light, leading to oxygen sensing. Oxygen sensing is critical to many applications, including industrial process control and breath analysis, but the existing oxygen sensors have limitations, especially for breath analysis that operates at 100% humidity. The UV irradiation also triggers fluorescence emission from newspaper, and the fluorescence intensity depends on oxygen concentra...


Determining the venous oxygen reservoir: A novel, hypothetical approach to titration of supplemental oxygen in preterm newborns.

While normal oxygen saturation is commonly thought to be a marker of normal oxygenation, cutaneous saturation does not account for the sufficiency of oxygen within each cell or that of the system overall. Rather, cutaneous oximetry simply defines the saturation of haemoglobin (Hb) with oxygen in a pulsatile vessel. Assessment of sufficiency is best determined by measurement of the amount of oxygen left over following aerobic respiration. This left over oxygen is 'stored' on Hb in the venous compartment and ...

Oxygen management in mechanically ventilated patients: A multicenter prospective observational study.

To observe arterial oxygen in relation to fraction of inspired oxygen (FO) during mechanical ventilation (MV).

Performing under pressure: hypertension and the regulation of cerebral oxygen delivery.

Reductions in arterial oxygen content (CaO) elicit increases in cerebral blood flow (CBF) that are adequate to maintain convective delivery of oxygen to the brain in healthy humans (i.e. cerebral oxygen delivery, CDO). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

The electronic structure of oxygen-deficient Hf<sub>0.5</sub>Zr<sub>0.5</sub>O<sub>2</sub> in the non-centrosymmetric orthorhombic (ferroelectric) phase was investigated by means of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and first-principle density functional theory calculations. It was established that a peak in photoelectron spectra observed at an energy above the valence band top of ferroelectric Hf<sub>0.5</sub>Zr<sub>0.5</sub>O<sub>2</sub&g...

Hyperbaric oxygen in patients with ischemic stroke following cardiac surgery: a retrospective observational trial.

Hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO₂) involves breathing 100% oxygen under elevated ambient pressure in a hyperbaric chamber, thereby dissolving oxygen in the plasma. This results in an increase of arterial partial pressure of oxygen (pO₂). Though well established in experimental studies, HBO₂ treatment for ischemic stroke is still under discussion.

Current Ventilator and Oxygen Management during General Anesthesia: A Multicenter, Cross-sectional Observational Study.

Intraoperative oxygen management is poorly understood. It was hypothesized that potentially preventable hyperoxemia and substantial oxygen exposure would be common during general anesthesia.

The Effects of Different Levels of Ambient Oxygen in an Oxygen-Enriched Surgical Environment and Production of Surgical Fires.

Surgical fires require an oxygen-enriched environment, a flammable substrate, and an ignition source. We hypothesized ambient oxygen concentration is proportional to the latency time to combustion and the incidence of surgical fires that are detected. We examined latency time and number of events, utilizing the VanCleave et al model of intraoral fire ignition under 60, 80, and 100% oxygen concentration and flow rates of 4 and 10 L/min. Results demonstrated that ambient oxygen concentration and flow rate cor...

Oxygen Exposure Resulting in Arterial Oxygen Tensions Above the Protocol Goal Was Associated With Worse Clinical Outcomes in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome.

High fractions of inspired oxygen may augment lung damage to exacerbate lung injury in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. Participants enrolled in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Network trials had a goal partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood range of 55-80 mm Hg, yet the effect of oxygen exposure above this arterial oxygen tension range on clinical outcomes is unknown. We sought to determine if oxygen exposure that resulted in a partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood above ...

Acute Oxygen Therapy: An Audit of Prescribing and Delivery Practices in a Tertiary Hospital in Perth, Western Australia.

Oxygen is a widely used drug in the hospital setting. However, international audits suggest that oxygen administration practices are often not compliant with prescribed standards. This can place patients at risk and cause serious adverse events.

Impact of L-citrulline supplementation on oxygen uptake kinetics during walking.

Supplementation with L-citrulline (Cit) has been shown to improve muscle oxygenation and oxygen uptake (VO2) kinetics during moderate-to-high intensity cycling in young men. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis whether Cit would improve VO2 kinetics during walking in older and young adults. In a randomized, double-blind study, 26 (15 women, 11 men) adults between the ages of 20-35y (n = 15) and 64-86y (n = 11) completed 7 day periods of taking placebo and L-citrulline (6 g/day) in a crossover ma...

Effect of localized hypoxia on Drosophila embryo development.

Environmental stress, such as oxygen deprivation, affects various cellular activities and developmental processes. In this study, we directly investigated Drosophila embryo development in vivo while cultured on a microfluidic device, which imposed an oxygen gradient on the developing embryos. The designed microfluidic device enabled both temporal and spatial control of the local oxygen gradient applied to the live embryos. Time-lapse live cell imaging was used to monitor the morphology and cellular migratio...

High oxygen facilitates wound-induced suberin polyphenolics formation in kiwifruit.

Rapid wound-healing would be critical for successful long-term storage of fruits and vegetables. However, there was no direct evidence for the requirement and efficiency of oxygen in fruit wound-healing process. This study was conducted to investigate the role of oxygen in wound-induced suberization by analyzing melanin, suberin polyphenolics (SPP) and related enzymes in half-cut kiwifruits exposed to 100%, 50%, 21% and 0% oxygen.

Fundamental understanding of distracted oxygen delignification efficiency by dissolved lignin during biorefinery process of eucalyptus.

In this work, a fundamental understanding of oxygen delignification distracted by dissolved lignin was investigated. In the new biorefinery model of shortening kraft pulping integrated with extended oxygen delignification process, increasing content of residual lignin in the original pulp could result in enhanced delignification efficiency, higher pulp viscosity and less carbonyl groups. However, the invalid oxygen consumption by dissolved lignin could be increased with the increase of process temperature a...

Humidified High-Flow Nasal Cannula Oxygen-More Than Just Supplemental Oxygen.

Oxygen Saturation in the Dental Pulp of Maxillary Premolars in Different Age Groups - Part 1.

The aim of this study was to determine oxygen saturation levels in the dental pulp of maxillary premolars in different age groups. A total of 120 human maxillary premolars with normal dental pulps were selected covering the following age groups: 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39 and 40-44 years (n=24 each group). Oxygen saturation was assessed using pulse oximetry. Analysis of variance was used to assess differences in oxygen saturation levels and Tukey's test was used to identify the age groups that differed from...

Pulse oximetry values of neonates admitted for care and receiving routine oxygen therapy at a resource-limited hospital in Kenya.

There are 2.7 million neonatal deaths annually, 75% of which occur in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Effective treatment of hypoxaemia through tailored oxygen therapy could reduce neonatal mortality and prevent oxygen toxicity.

Oxygen-Promoted Methane Activation on Copper.

The role of oxygen in the activation of C-H bonds in methane on clean and oxygen pre-covered Cu(111) and Cu2O(111) surfaces was studied with combined in situ ambient pressure scanning tunneling microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Activation of methane at 300 K and "moderate pressures" was only observed on oxygen pre-covered Cu(111) surfaces. Density functional theory calculations reveal that the lowest activation energy barrier of C-H on Cu(111) in the presence of chemisorbed oxygen is related ...

Effect of Routine Low-Dose Oxygen Supplementation on Death and Disability in Adults With Acute Stroke: The Stroke Oxygen Study Randomized Clinical Trial.

Hypoxia is common in the first few days after acute stroke, is frequently intermittent, and is often undetected. Oxygen supplementation could prevent hypoxia and secondary neurological deterioration and thus has the potential to improve recovery.

Initial use of high-flow oxygen did not reduce duration of oxygen therapy in infants with bronchiolitis.

Optical fiber-mediated photosynthesis for enhanced subsurface oxygen delivery.

Remediation of polluted groundwater often requires oxygen delivery into subsurface to sustain aerobic bacteria. Air sparging or injection of oxygen containing solutions (e.g., hydrogen peroxide) into the subsurface are common. In this study visible light was delivered into the subsurface using radially emitting optical fibers. Phototrophic organisms grew near the optical fiber in a saturated sand column. When applying light in on-off cycles, dissolved oxygen (DO) varied from super saturation levels of >15...

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is not associated with oxidative stress assessed using plasma F2-isoprostanes and isofurans.

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is increasingly used in medical practice as a means of enhancing the formation of collagen matrix and angiogenesis, thus promoting healing in wounds and necrotic tissue. However, there are concerns that oxygen can also associate with increased production of oxygen free radicals and oxidative stress. F2-Isoprostanes (F2-IsoPs) formed by non-enzymatic oxidation of arachidonic acid (AA) are reliable measures for assessing oxidative stress in vivo. In addition, under conditions o...
