• Through breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room, patients lungs' can gather up to three times more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. (cancercenterforhealing.com)
  • Patients breathe pure oxygen while the treatment system is at 2 to 3 times that of normal atmosphere. (cancercenterforhealing.com)
  • In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of patients undergoing colonoscopy, sedation with an inhaled mixture of nitrous oxide/oxygen was compared with conventional intravenous sedation (pethidine 50 mg, midazolam 2.5 mg). (ox.ac.uk)
  • In the patients studied, no significant differences were noted in number of pain episodes, need for additional intravenous sedation, or patient pain scores between the group receiving the nitrous oxide/oxygen mixture (n = 30) and those managed with conventional benzodiazepine/opiate injection (n = 29). (ox.ac.uk)
  • Six patients in the benzodiazepine/opiate group had oxygen desaturation, whereas none did in the nitrous oxide/oxygen group. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Except for patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, nitrous oxide/oxygen inhalation is a safe and acceptable alternative method of sedation and analgesia during colonoscopy. (ox.ac.uk)
  • DR. DONALD JOLLY-GABRIEL is the Executive Director of the South Bay Hyperbaric Center (SBHB) for Oxygen Treatment at Cancer Center For Healinge. (cancercenterforhealing.com)
  • Conclusion: The use of the assessed staged compression protocol for the first hyperbaric oxygen treatment showed no significant effect on the overall incidence of MEB when compared to the gold standard linear protocol but resulted in a significant improvement in the severity of the experienced MEBs.

  • Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. (mayoclinic.org)
  • Pure oxygen can cause fire if a spark or flame ignites a source of fuel. (mayoclinic.org)
  • The patient's blood carries this pure oxygen throughout the body to stimulate the release of growth factors and stem cells. (cancercenterforhealing.com)
  • Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body. (mayoclinic.org)
  • An increase in blood oxygen temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection. (mayoclinic.org)
  • The benefit of HBO is based on the premise that raising tissue oxygen levels will enhance wound healing ability. (biomedcentral.com)
