Maternal Oxygen Administration for Fetal Distress II

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...

Evaluation of Oxygen Delivery Through Nasal Cannula in Volunteers

This study will evaluate patient comfort and oxygen delivery efficiency when providing supplemental oxygen through a nasal cannula to volunteers using an instrumented oxygen delivery syste...

The Comparative Effectiveness of Liberal Versus Restricted Maternal Administration of Oxygen During Labor

The objective of this study is to determine if a strategy of indicated compared to liberal oxygen administration in labor decreases the rate of cesarean delivery. The hypothesis is that wo...

Oxygen Extraction and Delivery in Elderly During Major Surgery

This clinical observational study investigates perioperative oxygen consumption and delivery in elderly patients undergoing major surgery. The primary objectives are to characterise the pe...

On-Demand Oxygen Delivery System Study

The main goal of this study is to determine if supplemental oxygen given only when the patient is inspiring (demand delivery) is more effective than constant-flow oxygen given during all p...

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 ...

Acute eosinophilic appendicitis: a radiologic-pathologic correlation.

Inflammation of the appendix is one of the most common conditions requiring emergent surgical intervention. Computed tomography commonly demonstrates a dilated appendix with adjacent inflammation. Tra...

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 ...

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 a...

Complicated appendicitis and considerations for interval appendectomy.

Acute appendicitis is one of the most common surgical emergencies. Of the 300,000 appendectomies performed each year, 25% are due to complicated appendicitis. This article reviews the incidence and pa...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Acute inflammation of the APPENDIX. Acute appendicitis is classified as simple, gangrenous, or perforated.

The rate at which oxygen is used by a tissue; microliters of oxygen STPD used per milligram of tissue per hour; the rate at which oxygen enters the blood from alveolar gas, equal in the steady state to the consumption of oxygen by tissue metabolism throughout the body. (Stedman, 25th ed, p346)

Stable oxygen atoms that have the same atomic number as the element oxygen, but differ in atomic weight. O-17 and 18 are stable oxygen isotopes.

Molecules or ions formed by the incomplete one-electron reduction of oxygen. These reactive oxygen intermediates include SINGLET OXYGEN; SUPEROXIDES; PEROXIDES; HYDROXYL RADICAL; and HYPOCHLOROUS ACID. They contribute to the microbicidal activity of PHAGOCYTES, regulation of signal transduction and gene expression, and the oxidative damage to NUCLEIC ACIDS; PROTEINS; and LIPIDS.

Unstable isotopes of oxygen that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. O atoms with atomic weights 13, 14, 15, 19, and 20 are radioactive oxygen isotopes.
