Enzymatic glucose/oxygen biofuel cells: Use of oxygen-rich cathodes for operation under severe oxygen-deficit conditions.

A glucose/oxygen biofuel cell (BFC) that can operate continuously under oxygen-free conditions is described. The oxygen-deficit limitations of metabolite/oxygen enzymatic BFCs have been addressed by using an oxygen-rich cathode binder material, polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE), which provides an internal oxygen supply for the BFC reduction reaction. This oxygen-rich cathode component mitigates the potential power loss in oxygen-free medium or during external oxygen fluctuations through internal supply of...

Oxygen Reserve Index: Validation of a New Variable.

Pulse oximetry-derived oxygen saturation is typically >97% in normoxia and hyperoxia, limiting its clinical use. The new Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi), a relative indicator of the partial pressure of oxygen dissolved in arterial blood (PaO2) in the range of 100-200 mm Hg, may allow additional monitoring of oxygen status.

Topical oxygen therapy stimulates healing in difficult, chronic wounds: a tertiary centre experience.

Oxygen plays a central role in wound healing. Recent technological advances have miniaturised oxygen delivery systems, with novel topical oxygen therapy allowing patients to receive oxygen therapy 24 hours a day while remaining completely mobile. Here we aim to examine the efficacy and safety of continuous topical oxygen diffusion in a 'real-world' setting.

The effect of oxygen concentration on arterial blood partial pressure of oxygen in dogs under general anesthesia.

Oxygen is used for medical treatment and general anesthesia. However, high concentrations of oxygen can have toxic effects on cells. In veterinary medicine, 100% oxygen is usually used during general anesthesia and it can be toxic to animals. However, there is little concern about its harmful effects in humans. The objective of this study was to demonstrate that using a high con- centration of oxygen increases the partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood (PaO2) more so than a lower concentration, by com...

The Role of Oxygen Therapy in Normoxemic Acute Coronary Syndrome: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials.

Supplemental oxygen has been commonly used in the cases of acute coronary syndrome (ACS); however, recent evidence suggests that high-concentration oxygen supplementation and hyperbaric oxygen in ACS patients are associated with adverse cardiovascular effects.

Oxygen versus air-driven nebulisers for exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a randomised controlled trial.

In exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, administration of high concentrations of oxygen may cause hypercapnia and increase mortality compared with oxygen titrated, if required, to achieve an oxygen saturation of 88-92%. Optimally titrated oxygen regimens require two components: titrated supplemental oxygen to achieve the target oxygen saturation and, if required, bronchodilators delivered by air-driven nebulisation. The effect of repeated air vs oxygen-driven bronchodilator nebulisation i...

Oxygen Regulation in Development: Lessons from Embryogenesis towards Tissue Engineering.

Oxygen is a vital source of energy necessary to sustain and complete embryonic development. Not only is oxygen the driving force for many cellular functions and metabolism, but it is also involved in regulating stem cell fate, morphogenesis, and organogenesis. Low oxygen levels are the naturally preferred microenvironment for most processes during early development and mainly drive proliferation. Later on, more oxygen and also nutrients are needed for organogenesis and morphogenesis. Therefore, it is critic...

Lipid-polymer bilaminar oxygen nanobubbles for enhanced photodynamic therapy of cancer.

Hypoxia in solid tumors may be a hindrance to effective treatments of tumors in achieving their therapeutic potential, especially for photodynamic therapy (PDT) which requires oxygen as the supplement substrate. Oxygen delivery using perfluorocarbon emulsions or lipid oxygen microbubbles has been developed as the agents to supply endogenous oxygen to fuel singlet oxygen generation in PDT. However, such methods suffer from premature oxygen release and storage issues. To address these limitations, we designed...

Oxygen plasmas: a sharp chisel and handy trowel for nanofabrication.

Although extremely chemically reactive, oxygen plasmas feature certain properties that make them attractive not only for material removal via etching and sputtering, but also for driving and sustaining nucleation and growth of various nanostructures in plasma bulk and on plasma-exposed surfaces. In this minireview, a number of representative examples is used to demonstrate key mechanisms and unique capabilities of oxygen plasmas and how these can be used in present-day nano-fabrication. In addition to modif...

Economical lipid production from Trichosporon oleaginosus via dissolved oxygen adjustment and crude glycerol addition.

The effect of dissolved oxygen concentration on lipid accumulation in Trichosporon oleaginosus has been investigated. The experiment was performed in 15 L fermenters. The dissolved oxygen concentration varied by adjusting the agitation and aeration. High dissolved oxygen level at 50%-60% enhanced cell growth. Maintaining low dissolved oxygen concentration at 20%-30% during lipogenesis phase led to high final lipid content (51%) in Trichosporon oleaginosus. The consumptions of energy and cost of the proces...

New Perspectives in Oxygen Therapy Titration: Is Automatic Titration the Future?

Oxygen therapy, like all technology-based treatments, is continuously evolving. There are no doubts as to its effectiveness in the treatment of acute and respiratory failure in different clinical scenarios. However, the dosing guidelines for oxygen therapy are not as strict as for other treatments. The use of higher than necessary flows over excessively long periods, derived from the clinician's perception of it as a 'life-saving treatment with few side effects', has led to a rather liberal use of this inte...

Altered chemistry of oxygen and iron under deep Earth conditions.

A drastically altered chemistry was recently discovered in the Fe-O-H system under deep Earth conditions, involving the formation of iron superoxide (FeOHx with x = 0 to 1), but the puzzling crystal chemistry of this system at high pressures is largely unknown. Here we present evidence that despite the high O/Fe ratio in FeOHx, iron remains in the ferrous, spin-paired and non-magnetic state at 60-133 GPa, while the presence of hydrogen has minimal effects on the valence of iron. The reduced iron is ac...

From Oxiranes to Oligomers: Architectures of US FDA Approved Pharmaceuticals Containing Oxygen Heterocycles.

Oxygen heterocycles are the second most common type of heterocycles that appear as structural components of US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved pharmaceuticals. Analysis of our database of drugs approved through 2017, reveals 311 distinct pharmaceuticals containing at least one oxygen heterocycle. Most prevalent among these are pyranoses, with furanoses, macrolactones, morpholines, and dioxolanes rounding out the top five. The main body of this perspective is organized according to ring-size, com...

Oxygen diffusion in amorphous and partially crystalline gallium oxide.

Oxygen transport in amorphous (a-GaO1.5) and partially crystalline (a/c-GaO1.5) gallium oxide was studied by means of 18O/16O isotope exchange experiments and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS). Thin films of a-GaO1.5 were deposited by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) on alumina substrates at room temperature in an oxygen atmosphere. Oxygen tracer diffusion coefficients D* and oxygen surface exchange coefficients k* were determined as a function of temperature, 300 ≤ T/°C ≤ 370, and...

Identifying the Chemical Origin of Oxygen Redox Activity in Li-Rich Anti-Fluorite Lithium Iron Oxide by Experimental and Theoretical X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy.

Harnessing oxygen redox reactions is an intriguing route to increasing capacity in Li-ion batteries (LIBs). Despite numerous experimental and theoretical attempts to unravel the mechanism of oxygen redox behavior, the electronic origin of oxygen activities in energy storage of Li-rich LIB materials remains under intense debate. In this work, the onset of oxygen activity was examined using a Li-rich material that has been reported to exhibit oxygen redox, namely Li5FeO4. By comparing experimental measurement...

Superconductivity in Anti-ThCrSi-type ErOBi Induced by Incorporation of Excess Oxygen with CaO Oxidant.

Recently, superconductivity was induced by expanding interlayer distance between Bi square nets in anti-ThCrSi-type YOBi through incorporation of excess oxygen with increased nominal amount of oxygen. However, such oxygen incorporation was applicable to only YOBi among ROBi ( R = rare earth metal), probably due to a larger amount of oxygen incorporation for YOBi. In this study, the interlayer distance in ErOBi was increased by cosintering with CaO, which served as an oxidant, indicating that excess oxygen ...

Effect of Apneic Oxygenation on Tracheal Oxygen Levels, Tracheal Pressure, and Carbon Dioxide Accumulation: A Randomized, Controlled Trial of Buccal Oxygen Administration.

Apneic oxygenation via the oral route using a buccal device extends the safe apnea time in most but not all obese patients. Apneic oxygenation techniques are most effective when tracheal oxygen concentrations are maintained >90%. It remains unclear whether buccal oxygen administration consistently achieves this goal and whether significant risks of hypercarbia or barotrauma exist.

Review: Liberal oxygen increases mortality in acutely ill adults compared with conservative oxygen therapy.

Singlet Oxygen Production By a Crude Oil From the San Jorge Gulf Basin, Argentina.

The quantum yields for singlet oxygen production by diluted solutions of an Argentine crude oil and its SARA (saturates, aromatics, resins and asphaltenes) fractions were obtained by direct detection of the characteristic phosphorescence following monochromatic excitation at 355 nm. The most efficient sensitizers of singlet oxygen in organic media are crude oil, maltenes and aromatics fractions (values of singlet oxygen quantum yield are around 0.7), and resins (values around 0.1) are the poorest. Also, the...

Oxygen vacancies modulated Bi-rich bismuth oxyiodide microspheres with tunable valence band position to boost the photocatalytic activity.

How to optimize the photogenerated electron-hole pairs' separation efficiency and redox performance of defective photocatalysts is still a concern for photocatalysis research. In this study, rich oxygen vacancy was introduced in BiOI microsphere (BiOI-OVR) via a facile ionic liquid assisted solvothemal method to investigate the charge separation and photocatalytic performance. To demonstrate the dominant role of the introduced oxygen vacancy, partial oxygen vacancy in BiOI microsphere was repaired by post-c...

Nurses frequently administer nasal oxygen therapy for patients in intensive care units (ICUs). However, little is known about the current status, nurses' management and perception on the nasal oxygen therapy in China. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the nasal oxygen practice of ICUs in China to provide insights into future direction.

A chemiresistor sensor based on a cobalt(salen) metallopolymer for dissolved molecular oxygen.

A resistance detection device for dissolved molecular oxygen in aqueous solutions is prepared using a chemiresistor material as sensor platform. The chemiresistive circuit element is fashioned from a thin film of a cobalt-salen metallopolymer electrodeposited on a platinum electrode. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy shows that the resistive and capacitive properties of the sensor platform depend on the presence of dissolved oxygen. The electrical circuit models are R(Q/R)(Q/R) and R(Q/R)(Q/RW) in the ...

Effects of Pulmonary Flow Heterogeneity on Oxygen Transport Parameters in Exercise.

Under resting normoxic conditions, the healthy lung has ample oxygen uptake capacity relative to oxygen demand, but during exercise, increased oxygen demand and utilization become increasingly dependent on ventilation-perfusion matching. A mathematical model is used to investigate the effect of pulmonary flow heterogeneity, as characterized by the coefficient of variation (CV) of capillary blood flow, on pulmonary oxygen uptake in exercise. The model reveals that any level of heterogeneity up to a CV of 3 i...
