What should my oxygen saturation level be?. A range of 94-99% is normal for healthy adults breathing room air which contains 21% oxygen. Anyone who is not achieving the critical blood oxygen saturation level of 90% (SpO2) or of 55-60mmHg (SaO2), may require additional oxygen. A qualified medical practitioner will assess your situation and prescribe the appropriate dose of supplemental oxygen.. Oxygen saturation levels - what do they mean?. Oxygen saturation levels measure the degree to which the haemoglobin contained in the red blood cells (erythrocytes) has bonded with oxygen molecules. Oxygen is taken in by the lungs when we breathe in.. The two most common ways of assessing the saturation of oxygen in the blood are arterial blood gases (ABG) and pulsatile oxygen.. What does an ABG measure?. An ABG test measures how efficiently your lungs are bringing oxygen into the blood stream and removing carbon dioxide. Arterial blood gases are taken from an artery usually on the wrist. This procedure can ...
Background: Lipid peroxidation induced by oxygen free radicals plays a prominent role in myocardial injury after global ischemia. The present study investigated whether ventilation with lower concentration of inspired oxygen would decrease the severity of myocardial lipid peroxidation and post resuscitation myocardial dysfunction.. Methods: Ventricular fibrillation was induced and untreated for 8 mins in 46 male Sprague-Dawley rats. Defibrillation was attempted after 8 mins of CPR. The animals were randomized into 3 groups: mechanical ventilation with 100% O2, 50% O2 or 21% O2 during CPR and one hr following return of spontaneous circulation. Normoxic ventilation was maintained thereafter. The level of 8-iso-Prostaglandin F2α (8-iso-PGF2α) in myocardium was evaluated using the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Blood gases, post resuscitation myocardial function and the duration of survival were monitored in all animals.. Results: Compared with the 100% and 21% groups, the 50% group ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Brain tissue oxygen regulation in awake and anesthetized neonates. AU - Aksenov, Daniil P.. AU - Dmitriev, Andrey V.. AU - Miller, Michael J.. AU - Wyrwicz, Alice M.. AU - Linsenmeier, Robert A. PY - 2018/6/1. Y1 - 2018/6/1. N2 - Inhaled general anesthetics are used commonly in adults and children, and a growing body of literature from animals and humans suggests that exposure to anesthesia at an early age can impact brain development. While the origin of these effects is not well understood, it is known that anesthesia can disrupt oxygen regulation in the brain, which is critically important for maintaining healthy brain function. Here we investigated how anesthesia affected brain tissue oxygen regulation in neonatal rabbits by comparing brain tissue oxygen and single unit activity in the awake and anesthetized states. We tested two common general anesthetics, isoflurane and sevoflurane, delivered in both air and 80% oxygen. Our findings show that general anesthetics can greatly ...

This will be a multi-center, prospective, double-blind clinical trial of physiologic (5%) oxygen tension in culture media vs. standard of care, atmospheric (SOC, 20%) oxygen tension with 840 eligible couples recruited to participate. The randomization scheme will be coordinated through the central data coordinating center (DCC-Yale) and the randomization will be stratified by age group of the woman (18-34, 35-37, 38-40 and 40-42) and each participating site.. Treatment. Couples will be randomized to either have their gametes and embryos placed in a physiologic (5%) oxygen atmosphere or in the currently widely used atmospheric (20%) oxygen atmosphere. ...
During pregnancy, oxygen diffuses from maternal to fetal blood through villous trees in the placenta. In this paper, we simulate blood flow and oxygen transfer in feto-placental capillaries by converting three-dimensional representations of villous and capillary surfaces, reconstructed from confocal laser scanning microscopy, to finite-element meshes, and calculating values of vascular flow resistance and total oxygen transfer. The relationship between the total oxygen transfer rate and the pressure drop through the capillary is shown to be captured across a wide range of pressure drops by physical scaling laws and an upper bound on the oxygen transfer rate. A regression equation is introduced that can be used to estimate the oxygen transfer in a capillary using the vascular resistance. Two techniques for quantifying the effects of statistical variability, experimental uncertainty and pathological placental structure on the calculated properties are then introduced. First, scaling arguments are used to
Journal of The Electrochemical Society, Volume 166, Number 6, 02.04.2019, p E153-E158 Control of the dissolved oxygen concentration is crucial for the use of liquid lead bismuth eutectic (LBE) as a coolant of advanced nuclear reactors. An electrochemical oxygen pumping (EOP) system was applied to a non-isothermal liquid LBE loop in order to evaluate its capability to control oxygen in 700 liters of flowing LBE. Oxygen pumps were fabricated using one end closed tube of yttria partially stabilized zirconia (YPSZ) as the solid electrolyte and LSCF (lanthanum strontium cobalt ferrite) as electrode. The oxygen transfer through the oxygen pump was regulated by controlling the applied electric current using a PID controller with feedback from a potentiometric oxygen sensor. The oxygen was added to or removed from the LBE by oxygen pumps depending on target oxygen concentration and a process value given by the oxygen sensor. At low oxygen concentrations, oxygen removal rates were limited by oxygen mass ...

Bedside catheterization of the right heart with a percutaneously introduced flowdirected catheter was carried out in 24 critically ill patients; 71 determinations of mixed venous oxygen saturation (MVo2) were obtained. A second catheter was inserted either into a central intrathoracic vein or the right atrium for simultaneous sampling of central venous (CVo2) or right atrial (RAo2) oxygen saturation.. For the group as a whole, mean CVo2 (57.9% ± 15.25) was significantly greater than mean MVo2 (53.3% ± 14.84) (P,0.001), but there was no significant difference and correlation was good between changes in central venous compared to changes in mixed venous oxygen saturation. On the other hand, there was no significant mean difference as well as an excellent correlation between individual values of RAo2 and MVo2 (r=+0.95).. Patients with heart failure or shock showed poor correlation between CVo2 and simultaneously determined MVo2. Furthermore, subjects with shock showed a mean CVo2 (58.0%±13.05) ...
... Oxygen is needed by cells for respiration. Oxygen used by cells in suspension must be available as dissolved oxygen. Since oxygen solubility is quite small, about 6 to 7 mg/L under normal cultivation conditions, metabolic oxygen requirement is supplied on a as needed basis by continuous aeration of culture medium. Actively respiring yeast requires about 0.15 g O2 (g cell)-1 h. At a cell concentration of 10 g L-1, medium saturated with air can support less than 30 seconds worth of metabolic oxygen. That is, a continuous supply of oxygen must be maintained in any viable aerobic manufacturing process. In this Chapter, we will first get a quantitative appreciation for metabolic oxygen demand, followed by methods used in calculating rates at which oxygen is transfered from sparged air. We will then examine methods useful in characterizing oxygen mass transfer coefficient. Finally we will evaluate bioreactor operation and design based on oxygen transfer ...

The catalytic combustion of hydrocarbons has been studied further, with particular attention given to the ionization phenomena associated therewith. The greater ion yield of highly branched alkanes relative to straight-chain alkanes was confirmed. The effect of the concentration of O2 in the gas mixture on the extent of oxidation and ionization varied with the hydrocarbon used. In general, increase in O2 content caused considerable enhancement of the ion yield. However, with some hydrocarbons the fraction oxidized decreased markedly with increased O2 concentration. The data seem consistent with an explanation based on lower temperature oxidation occurring only on the Pt surface, whereas at higher temperatures the catalytic process extends itself to some degree into the vapor phase. It is also suggested that dissociative adsorption of O2 at higher temperatures is involved in the ion-producing process. (Author)(*HYDROCARBONS
Aug 22, 2017 · When your body doesnt receive enough oxygen and you have a low blood oxygen level, hypoxemia or hypoxia, cyanosis and other conditions may occur. Because COPD and other chronic lung diseases restrict or obstruct normal breathing, low blood oxygen levels can be a serious issue.

Preterm infants are born with immature lungs and often require help with breathing shortly after birth. This traditionally involves administering 100% oxygen. Unfortunately, delivery of high oxygen concentrations leads to the production of free radicals that can injure many organ systems. Term and near-term newborns deprived of oxygen during or prior to birth respond as well or better to resuscitation with room air (21% oxygen) compared to 100% oxygen. However, a static concentration of 21% oxygen may be inappropriate for preterm infants with lung disease.Purpose of the study is to investigate if preterm neonates where resuscitation is initiated with 21% fiO2 and adjusted to meet transitional goal saturations (Limited oxygen strategy or LOX) would have less oxidative stress as measured by the oxidative balance ratio of biological antioxidant potential/total hydroperoxide compared to infants where resuscitation is initiated with pure oxygen and titrated for targeted saturations of 85-94% ...

Ten rats born and maintained in a pure oxygen environment at a total pressure of 210 mm. Hg absolute were placed individually in metabolism cages at 21 days of age and remained there for 6 weeks. They were compared with a similar group of ground-level controls. In additon, 6 rats maintained at altitude and 6 controls were sacrificed at 21 days of age to provide an initial estimate of whole-body energy. Growth rates did not differ significantly; however, overall digestibility was lowered in experimentals, 74.3% versus 79.5% for controls (P < .001), with even greater differences in protein digestibility, 65.5% versus 74.6% (P < .001). Although less fat was also digested by experimentals, 75.6% versus 81.4%, this difference was not significant. Net caloric intake for both groups was the same, however, as a result of increased food intake by experimentals. Calories given off as heat did not differ, suggesting similar metabolic rates. Carcass content of fat and protein, as a percentage of dry matter,
In a non-emergency situation, assess the patient using a pulse oximeter before administrating oxygen. Find out whether the patient has any relevant medical history, for example, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In COPD even moderate levels of supplementary oxygen may increase the patients carbon dioxide levels and may lead to respiratory depression and respiratory arrest.. The target oxygen saturation level is 94-98%. Give high levels of oxygen for adults with critical illnesses until their vital signs are normal then decrease the oxygen dose to maintain saturation between 94-98% Cardiac arrest - Oxygen can be attached to a Bag-Valve Mask (BVM) or pocket mask. Carbon monoxide poisoning - give high flow oxygen until emergency medical help arrives. ...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to simulate an in flight environment at sea level with a fractional inspired concentration of oxygen (FiO2) of 0.15 to determine how much supplemental oxygen was needed to restore a subjects oxygen saturation (SaO2) to 90% or to the level previously attained when breathing room air (FiO2 of 0.21). METHODS: Three groups were selected with normal, obstructive, and restrictive lung function. Using a sealed body plethysmograph an environment with an FiO2 of 0.15 was created and mass spectrometry was used to monitor the FiO2. Supplemental oxygen was administered to the patient by nasal cannulae. SaO2 was continuously monitored and recorded at an FiO2 of 0.21, 0.15, and 0.15 + supplemental oxygen. RESULTS: When given 2 l/m of supplemental oxygen all patients in the 15% environment returned to a similar SaO2 value as that obtained using the 21% oxygen environment. One patient with airways obstruction needed 3 l/m of supplemental oxygen to raise his SaO2 above 90%. ...

A piston ventilator is disclosed herein which uniquely includes an oxygen blending module which supplies oxygen enhancement for aiding patients requiring respiratory treatment. The oxygen blending module supplies a preselected enrichment of oxygen to a piston and cylinder assembly wherein the amount of oxygen permitted to flow therein is continuously monitored and controlled according to the volume above the piston in the cylinder as calculated by a controller. The oxygen blending module includes a flow sensor which monitors the flow of supplemental oxygen into the piston and cylinder assembly, and further includes a primary oxygen control valve which restricts the flow of oxygen through the flow sensor to the piston and cylinder assembly depending on the difference between the calculated desired amount of oxygen and the target amount of oxygen provided to the controller.
Oxygen is a gas that the cells in your body need to work properly. The air we breathe normally contains 21% oxygen. We can receive up to 100% oxygen.. WHY IS OXYGEN USED?. Babies with heart or lung problems may need to breathe increased amounts of oxygen to get normal levels of oxygen in their blood.. HOW IS OXYGEN DELIVERED?. There are several different ways to deliver oxygen to a baby. Which method is used depends on how much oxygen is needed and whether the baby needs a breathing machine.. An oxygen hood is used for babies who can breathe on their own but still need extra oxygen. A hood is a plastic dome or box with warm, moist oxygen inside. The hood is placed over the babys head.. A thin, soft, plastic tube called a nasal cannula may be used instead. This tube has soft prongs that gently fit into the babys nose. Oxygen flows through the tube. The baby must be able to breathe without assistance to use this type of oxygen therapy.. Another method is a nasal CPAP system. CPAP stands for ...
We gave a perfluorochemical oxygen-transport fluid and plasma expander, Fluosol-DA, to seven severely anemic patients before surgery to determine its effectiveness in supplementing oxygen transport. The dose of Fluosol in the five patients completing the study was 20 ml per kilogram of body weight. When the patients breathed low levels of supplemental oxygen (mean partial pressure of arterial oxygen +/- S.D., 101 +/- 25 torr), the perfluorochemical carried a small amount of oxygen, but when they received pure oxygen (arterial oxygen pressure, 361 +/- 65 torr) it carried approximately 0.8 per cent of oxygen (by volume). This increase accounted for 7 +/- 3 per cent of the patients arterial oxygen content and 24 +/- 7 per cent of their oxygen consumption. The cardiac index and left ventricular stroke-work index decreased, whereas the oxygen delivery increased, although these changes were not statistically significant. Significant changes included a 22 per cent increase in oxygen consumption, a 59 per cent
Insights from Sustained Investigations in the Northern California Current Large Marine Ecosystem Abstract. Coastal upwelling ecosystems around the world are defined by wind-generated.... Oxygen is fundamental for life in the ocean. Low oxygen environments occur naturally in some habitats, including oxygen minimum zones, deep basins of semi-enclosed seas or coastal lagoons and coastal upwelling regions. They are often associated with highly productive surface waters, where input of nutrients via upwelling, riverine or atmospheric supply fuels production of organic matter, part of which is subsequently respired and thereby consumes oxygen. The spatial extent and the severity of low oxygen conditions have increased during the past decades, and there are serious concerns that global warming, together with agricultural run-off and human waste and input of anthropogenic aerosols enhances the deoxgenation of the ocean, which will have extensive impacts on the oceans chemistry and ecosystems and eventually
Doctors give trusted answers on uses, effects, side-effects, and cautions: Dr. Sneid on high oxygen levels in blood: Well you would anticipate 95 to 100% oxygen saturation for a young healthy adult. The lower the oxygen saturation the more concern.
Purpose: Optimal function of the retina is dependent on adequate oxygen supply. In humans, the inner retina including the retinal ganglion cells is oxygenated via the retinal circulation. We present a method to calculate total retinal oxygen extraction based on non-invasive techniques in humans.. Methods: In a total of 8 healthy subjects, absolute retinal blood flow values and optical density ratio for each retinal vessel entering the optic nerve head were assessed using dual-beam bidirectional Doppler Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and spectrophotometric measurements, respectively. These experiments were done during breathing of ambient room air as well as during breathing of 100% oxygen. Based on these measurements, retinal oxygen extraction was calculated.. Results: Total retinal blood flow was 44.3 ± 3.0 ml/min during baseline and decreased to 18.7 ± 4.2 µl/min during 100% oxygen breathing (P , 0.001). Corrected arterio-venous oxygen difference was 0.053 ± 0.008 [ml(O2)/ml] at ...
The time to onset of symptoms is highly variable but most individuals can tolerate 12-16 hours of oxygen at 1.0 ATA, 8-14 hours at 1.5 ATA, and 3-6 hours at 2.0 ATA before developing mild symptoms. There are several ways to track developing pulmonary oxygen toxicity but the most sensitive and accurate is the development of symptoms. A second technique is to monitor the vital capacity. Vital capacity (the amount of air that can be moved in one large breath) decreases with increasing pulmonary toxicity. A reduction of approximately 2% in vital capacity correlates with mild symptoms while a reduction of 10% correlates symptoms so severe that most individuals will not voluntarily continue breathing oxygen. These mild effects are completely reversible and no permanent lung damage occurs. However, the damage will take 2 to 4 weeks to heal. The pathology of pulmonary oxygen toxicity is understood but beyond the scope of this discussion.. A third way to keep track, in rough terms, of pulmonary oxygen ...
To our knowledge, our study is the first to systematically correlate BOLD SI changes to endothelial-mediated blood flow changes in the human forearm. With increasing blood flow, we observed an increase in BOLD SI, with saturation at high blood flow levels. However, after intermittent ischemia, BOLD SI remained elevated even after normalization of blood flow. Because O2 consumption is constant for Po2 levels of ≥1 mm Hg and thus does not account for the observed dissociation, the decay time constant for the BOLD MRI signal may indicate the presence of microvascular oxygen reserve.. Our reactive hyperemia results are consistent with the magnitude and dynamics of BOLD SI-related changes reported previously.10,11 Very recent data by Towse et al also provided evidence for a dissociation of flow and BOLD SI.18 Persisting high values of BOLD SI after blood flow normalization are met by postischemic and even posthyperemic elevations of oxygen saturation of venous blood and tissue oxygen tension.19-21 ...
To understand the role of nitric oxide (NO) in the regulation of energy metabolism of tumor cells, its effect on the respiration and calcium homeostasis was examined with ascites hepatoma (AH130) cells under different oxygen tensions. NO reversibly inhibited the respiration and depolarized the membrane potential of AH130 cells in an oxygen-dependent manner; the inhibition was more marked at physiologically low oxygen concentrations than at its high tensions. NO reversibly decreased the cellular ATP levels and elevated the cytosolic calcium, particularly under low oxygen concentrations. Since the peritoneal cavity is fairly anaerobic, the results suggested that small amounts of NO generated in this compartment might strongly affect the energy metabolism and calcium homeostasis of tumor cells in vivo.. ...
At high initial saturation only mean 0.16% saturation drop occurs per second, thus in average a healthy individual looses 1% oxygen saturation approx every 5 seconds (Id also like to note that the urge to breathe does not come from the lack of oxygen when holding breath, but from the accumulation of CO2). According to wikipedia normal oxygen saturation is between 100-95%, and only below 90% is considered hypoxemia /hypoxia (a medical condition where blood oxygen level is low). So if we look at the data in the table, it is safe to say that it takes approx 20s until the blood saturation level drops from 97% to 93% and another 5-6 seconds until it drops to 90% (with approx 0.5% saturation loss per sec at 93% initial saturation).. People who are conditioned by exercise have larger vital-capacity (they can breathe more air in for a single breath), thus have means to acquire more oxygen can compensate for the excess use of oxygen. During heavy sport activity like swimming it is unlikely that anybody ...
Introduction: Oxygen delivery, or utilization, is a function of retinal blood flow and blood oxygen saturation. The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), in particular, has been shown to have the highest levels of metabolic activity within the human body. Oxygen delivery is therefore of extreme importance to the maintenance of the health and integrity of the retina. Animal models presuppose that the oxygen tension in the retina is highest in the innermost layers at the level of the choriocapillaris, less in the photoreceptors and further decreases throughout the outer retinal structures. The choroid provides by far the largest component of the oxygen for consumption by the photoreceptors. A lack of oxygen stores in the inner retina therefore makes a constant supply crucial for its normal functioning. Blood flow dysfunction and subsequent hypoxia are both a feature in the pathogenesis of several major ocular diseases such as retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), ...
This study introduces a method to detect individual oxygen molecules by fluorescence microscopy of single hemocyanins. These respiratory proteins from a tarantula bind oxygen with high affinity. A spectrometric signature of the oxygenated protein is transferred to an attached fluorescence label, which can be detected at the single-molecule level. This technique opens new perspectives for the development of small and sensitive oxygen sensors as well as for the investigation of cooperative oxygen binding in respiratory proteins.
Plants can frequently experience low oxygen concentrations due to environmental factors such as flooding or waterlogging. It has been reported that both anoxia and the transition from anoxia to re-oxygenation determine a strong imbalance in the cellular redox state involving the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitric oxide (NO). Plant cell cultures can be a suitable system to study the response to oxygen deprivation stress since a close control of physicochemical parameters is available when using bioreactors. For this purpose, Arabidopsis cell suspension cultures grown in a stirred bioreactor were subjected to a severe anoxic stress and analyzed during anoxia and re-oxygenation for alteration in ROS and NO as well as in antioxidant enzymes and metabolites. The results obtained by confocal microscopy showed the dramatic increase of ROS, H2O2 and NO during the anoxic shock. All the ascorbate-glutathione related parameters were altered during anoxia but restored during re-oxygenation.
A very competitive alcohol for use in diesel engines is butanol. Butanol is of particular interest as a renewable bio-fuel, as it is less hydrophilic and it possesses higher heating value, higher cetane number, lower vapor pressure, and higher miscibility than ethanol or methanol. These properties make butanol preferable to ethanol or methanol for blending with conventional diesel or gasoline fuel. In this paper, the spray and combustion characteristics of pure n-butanol fuel was experimentally investigated in a constant volume combustion chamber. The ambient temperatures were set to 1000 K, and three different oxygen concentrations were set to 21%, 16%, and 10.5%. The results indicate that the penetration length reduces with the increase of ambient oxygen concentration. The combustion pressure and heat release rate demonstrate the auto-ignition delay becomes longer with decreasing of oxygen concentrations ...
Thiobios (sulfide-dependent) meiofauna have an aerobic metabolism, are sulfide-insensitive and rarely contain symbiotic sulfur-oxidizing bacteria. Adaptations so far observed in thiobios are consistent with the overriding need to maximize the diffusive flux of oxygen and sulfide to optimize energy yield. Both accrue from the requirement that oxygen and sulfide uptake and metabolism be controlled by diffusion and first-order rate reactions. These adaptations include variation in shape, mitochondrial distribution and respiratory capacity. Meiofauna can substantially supplement a more inefficient anaerobic metabolism with aerobic metabolism at oxygen concentrations as low as 0.1 M. Hence, an aerobic capacity is useful even in thiobios. Adaptation to low oxygen, by decreasing metabolic rate, is counterproductive unless oxygen consumption remains zero-order. Otherwise, aerobic metabolic capacity must be increased to maximize oxygen flux. Sulfide-insensitivity is necessary because a sulfide ...
However, in the case of HRTFB, the relation was linear for surface renewal over a wide range of values. Shake flasks and un-baffled stirred vessels with surface aeration were not suitable for such a study, since the surface area in either system was difficult to define and varied as the shaker or stirrer/agitator speed was changed. In addition, the surface-to-volume ratio was unfavorable for obtaining high oxygen transfer rates.. Wetted-wall columns have been used for gas-liquid transfer studies. However, the rate of flow down or up the wetted wall is limited by gravitational force, and the requirement for recirculation of the fermentation liquid dictated an aseptic pumping operation.. Heaviside Theory (HST) based Concept: In oxic bioprocess engineering system in liquid culture transfer of oxygen from air to liquid has been measured by fast response steam sterilizable dissolved oxygen probe on line. In the measurement, the concept of flow of oxygen from higher concentration (heaviside) to lower ...

Bradley explained that insects typically maintain 4-5 kilopascals of oxygen in their respiratory systems, 4-5 times lower than the normal oxygen concentration in the atmosphere. In a normal oxygen-concentration environment, the insect breathes for a period of time and releases a burst of carbon dioxide. It then closes its respiratory system, blocking off more intake of oxygen, to maintain the internal oxygen concentration at 4-5 kilopascals, the right oxygen concentration for its body. In a low-oxygen environment, the insect opens its respiratory system for longer periods of time; when it closes the system, it does so for only a very short time. In a stream of air with high oxygen on the other hand, the respiratory system opens briefly and then closes firmly for a long time. "In other words, insects are actively keeping oxygen out and doing it in a way that shows they know how to measure oxygen," Bradley said. "Their behavior indicates they are regulating oxygen ...
Oxygen is classified as a nonmetal. In the periodic table, it is located at the top of group 16 (formerly group 6A), which is a family of elements called the chalcogens or the oxygen family. In addition, it lies between nitrogen and fluorine in period 2.. At ordinary temperatures and pressures, free oxygen (unbound to any other element) is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that makes up about 21% (by volume) of air. Ordinarily, each molecule of oxygen gas consists of two oxygen atoms bound to each other, so the molecular formula is written as O2.. This molecular oxygen (O2) is essential for the human bodys metabolic processes, which sustain our lives. The human body cannot store oxygen for later use as it does with food. If the body is deprived of oxygen for more than a few minutes, unconsciousness results. The bodys tissues and organs (notably the heart and brain) are damaged if deprived of oxygen for much longer than four minutes.. Gaseous oxygen becomes a liquid at temperatures below ...

We have developed an injectable foam suspension containing self-assembling, lipid-based microparticles encapsulating a core of pure oxygen gas for intravenous injection. Prototype suspensions were manufactured to contain between 50 and 90 ml of oxygen gas per deciliter of suspension. Particle size was polydisperse, with a mean particle diameter between 2 and 4 μm. When mixed with human blood ex vivo, oxygen transfer from 70 volume % microparticles was complete within 4 s. When the microparticles were infused by intravenous injection into hypoxemic rabbits, arterial saturations increased within seconds to near-normal levels; this was followed by a decrease in oxygen tensions after stopping the infusions. The particles were also infused into rabbits undergoing 15 min of complete tracheal occlusion. Oxygen microparticles significantly decreased the degree of hypoxemia in these rabbits, and the incidence of cardiac arrest and organ injury was reduced compared to controls.

Introduction: No screening procedures exist for evaluating stroke risk in adults with sickle cell anemia (SCA). Reduced oxygen carrying capacity is present in SCA, which may initially be compensated for by an increase in cerebral blood flow (CBF) and then by increased oxygen extraction fraction (OEF).. Hypothesis: OEF and CBF can be measured noninvasively and reproducibly with MRI using clinically-available equipment in adults with SCA; elevated OEF provides added discriminatory capacity for clinical impairment relative to vasculopathy extent and CBF alone.. Methods: Structural, CBF-weighted, and MRA imaging, together with a noninvasive OEF-weighted T2-relaxation-under-spin-tagging (TRUST)-MRI method was applied in SCA adults (n=26) and race and age-matched controls (n=11). A Kruskal-Wallis test was applied to evaluate mean differences between SCA and control parameters. Linear regression assessed how elevated OEF correlated with increasing clinical impairment defined by presence of infarct, ...
Acceptor-type doping of perovskite-type La1-xSrxGa0.80-yMgyM0.20O3-δ (x = 0-0.20, y = 0.15-0.20, M = Fe, Co, Ni) leads to significant enhancement of ionic conductivity and oxygen permeability due to increasing oxygen vacancy concentration. The increase in strontium and magnesium content is accompanied, however, with increasing role of surface exchange kinetics as permeation-limiting factor. At temperatures below 1223 K, the oxygen permeation fluxes through La(Sr)Ga(Mg,M)O3-δ membranes with thickness less than 1.5 mm are predominantly limited by the exchange rates at membrane surface. The oxygen transport in transition metal-containing La(Sr)Ga(Mg)O3-δ ceramics increase in the sequence Co | Fe | Ni. The ionic conduction in these phases is, however, lower than that in the parent compounds, La1-xSrxGa1-yMgyO3-δ. The highest level of oxygen permeation, comparable to that of La(Sr)Fe(Co)O3- and La2NiO4-based phases, is observed for La0.90Sr0.10Ga0.65Mg0.15Ni0.20O3-δ membranes. The average thermal
In freshwater or marine systems apparent oxygen utilization (AOU) is the difference between oxygen gas solubility (i.e. the concentration at saturation) and the measured oxygen concentration in water with the same physical and chemical properties.[1] Such differences typically occur when biological activity acts to change the ambient concentration of oxygen. For example, primary production liberates oxygen and increases its concentration, while respiration consumes it and decreases its concentration. Consequently, the AOU of a water sample represents the sum of the biological activity that the sample has experienced since it was last in equilibrium with the atmosphere. In shallow water systems (e.g. lakes), the full water column is generally in close contact with the atmosphere, and oxygen concentrations are typically close to saturation, and AOU values are near zero. In deep water systems (e.g. oceans), water can be out of contact with the atmosphere for extremely long periods of time (years, ...
My friend Joe P has created detailed instructions for building the oxygen environment he built for his guinea pig, George. George is over 5 years old and has had suffered from heavy breathing at times. The emergency vets and his vet were able to stabilize George by keeping him on oxygen and giving him Lasix. So, Joe built this tank so he could do the same for George while managing him at home ...
Oxygen concentrations vary between tissues of multicellular organisms and are changing under certain physiological or pathologic conditions. Multiple methods were developed for measuring oxygenation of biological samples in vitro and in vivo. However most of them require complex equipment, are laborious and have significant limitations. Here we report that oxygen concentration determines the choice between two maturation pathways of a DsRed FT (Timer). At high oxygen levels, this DsRed derivate matures predominantly into a red fluorescent isoform. In contrast, a green fluorescent isoform is favored by low oxygen levels. Ratiometric analysis of green and red fluorescence after a pulse of Timer expression in Drosophila larvae provides a record of the history of tissue oxygenation during a subsequent chase period, for the whole animal with single cell precision. Tissue spreads revealed fine differences in oxygen exposure among different cells of the same organ. We expect that simplicity and ...
This work concerns the oxidation of biodiesel surrogates in a CI engine. An experimental study has been carried out in a single-cylinder common-rail CI engine with soybean biodiesel and two biodiesel surrogates containing neat methyl decanoate and methyl decanoate/n-heptane blends. Tests have been conducted with various intake oxygen concentrations ranging from 21% to approximately 9% at intake temperatures of 25°C and 50°C. The results showed that the ignition delay and smoke emissions of neat methyl decanoate were closer to that of soybean biodiesel as compared with methyl decanoate/n-heptane blends. A reduced chemical kinetic mechanism for the oxidation of methyl decanoate has been developed and applied to model internal combustion engines. A KIVA code, coupled with the Chemkin chemistry solver, was used as the computational platforms. The effects of various intake oxygen concentrations on the in-cylinder emissions of OH and soot were discussed ...
Contrary to accepted knowledge, blood can bring more oxygen to mice brains when they exercise because the increased respiration packs more oxygen into the hemoglobin, according to an international team of researchers who believe that this holds true for all mammals.. "Standard thought was that mammalian blood is always completely saturated with oxygen," said Patrick J. Drew, Huck Distinguished Associate Professor of Neural Engineering and Neurosurgery and associate director of the Penn State Neuroscience Institute.. That would mean that the only way to get more oxygen to the brain would be to get more blood to the brain by increasing blood flow. The researchers were interested in seeing how brain oxygen levels were affected by natural behaviors, specifically exercise.. "We know that people change breathing patterns when doing cognitive tasks," said Drew. "In fact, respiration phase locks to the task at hand. In the brain, increases in neural activity usually are accompanied by increases in blood ...
The oxygen status of a tumor has significant clinical implications for treatment prognosis, with well-oxygenated subvolumes responding markedly better to radiotherapy than poorly supplied regions. Oxygen is essential for tumor growth, yet estimation of local oxygen distribution can be difficult to ascertain in situ, due to chaotic patterns of vasculature. It is possible to avoid this confounding influence by using avascular tumor models, such as Multi-Cellular Tumor Spheroids (MCTS), where oxygen supply can be described by diffusion alone and are a much better approximation of realistic tumor dynamics than monolayers. Similar to in situ tumours, spheroids exhibit an approximately sigmoidal growth curve, often approximated and fitted by logistic and Gompertzian sigmoid functions. These describe the basic rate of growth well, but do not offer an explicitly mechanistic explanation. This work examines the oxygen dynamics of spheroids and demonstrates that this growth can be derived mechanistically ...

Dissolved oxygen can act as a resource, because it is required for aerobic metabolism, and as information, because it can indicate poor water quality and drying pond conditions. Embryos raised in low oxygen were smaller than those raised in high oxygen indicating oxygen limits growth. The pond species, that lives in low oxygen habitats, had a much smaller response to oxygen than the stream species that generally experiences high oxygen. This suggests that the response to oxygen increases evolutionarily with the availability of oxygen. Later in development, pond larvae reversed the direction of their response so that larvae raised in low oxygen were larger than those raised in high oxygen. This growth response to low oxygen is correlated with early metamorphosis which suggests the response is adaptive when ponds dry up. The stream dweller, however, did not developmentally reverse the direction of plasticity. It continued having the largest body size in high oxygen throughout development. This ...
DENSOs oxygen sensor started to appear on vehicles with the development of fuel injection systems. The basic job of the sensor is to monitor the air fuel mixture under idle, moderate acceleration and cruise conditions. Under heavy acceleration the oxygen sensor goes into "open loop" Which basically means that the engine management computer system ignores the oxygen sensor. Oxygen sensors have a smaller range of limits in detecting and adjusting the difference from an optimum air/fuel ratio..

At the dentists direction you may hook up the resuscitator to an oxygen supply. Oxygen tanks are always painted green. Attach the oxygen hose from the oxygen bottle to the connector on the end of the resuscitator. On the top of the oxygen tank is the cylinder valve. A yoke is used to attach the liter gauge and pressure gauge to the oxygen tank. When directed, turn the oxygen supply cylinder valve counterclockwise (fig. 9-4) until it is completely open. Next, turn the regulator control adjust handle clockwise until the proper flow rate in liters per minute is established on the liter gauge. The normal flow rate is 6 liters per minute. Once the oxygen is turned on, place the mask over the victims nose and mouth.

Technetium-99m labeled cyclam N-2-methoxyethyl-2-(3-nitro-1-triazole) acetamide (cyclam AK 2123) has been synthesized, radiolabeled and characterized as a hypoxic tumor imaging agent. Radiochemical purity was greater than 95%. Marker biodistribution was measured in normal Wistar strain rats at different time intervals after intra venous (i.v.) administration. In vivo distribution and scintigraphic imaging studies were performed after i.v. injection into mammary tumor-bearing rats using a gamma camera and associated computer. Intratumor partial oxygen pressure (pO(2)) and oxygen saturation measurements were performed to estimate the oxygenation status of the tumors. Tumor to muscle ratio (T/M) of Tc-99m-cyclam AK 2123 was 8.5 which was compared with other tumor seeking radiopharmaceuticals, viz. Tc-99m-(V) DMSA (3.07), Tc-99m-citrate (5.29) and (201)T1C1 (3.29). T/M ratios were also evaluated in comparison with radioiodinated iodoazomycin galactopyronoside (I-125-IAZG). The ratio obtained was ...

Your body uses red blood cells to transport oxygen to all of the different muscles that have to work together during a cardio workout. A lot of oxygen is pumped to your legs and arms to keep you moving. However, at some point, your body is physically taking in less oxygen than it needs to keep you going. At times, this can force you to stop exercising. More often that not, your body goes through a process whereby it releases lactic acid into your muscles to allow them to keep going. During this time, your muscles are not receiving enough oxygen.. Once you finish working out and your muscles are no longer being used, oxygen debt requires you to continue to feed your body oxygen. Extra oxygen is required to help break down the lactic acid. This is one reason you should also stretch immediately after a workout. Stretching allows your muscles to release lactic acid and helps get oxygen back to them more quickly. It also replenishes the oxygen that you use from other systems of the body. Paying back ...
The present-day distribution of oxygen in the internal deep ocean is thus determined by a complicated and not fully understood interplay of water circulation and bio-logical productivity, which leads to oxygen consumption in the oceans interior. Extensive measurements have shown that the highest oxygen concentrations are found at high latitudes, where the ocean is cold, especially well-mixed and ventilated. The mid-latitudes, by contrast, especially on the western coasts of the continents, are characterized by marked oxygen-deficient zones. The oxygen supply here is very weak due to the sluggish water circulation, and this is further compounded by -elevated oxygen consumption due to high biological productivity. This leads to a situation where the oxygen is almost completely depleted in the depth range between 100 and 1000 metres. This situation is also observed in the northern Indian Ocean in the area of the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Different groups of marine organisms react to the ...
After long-term cultivation in hypoxia, C. elegans prefers lower oxygen concentrations and avoids hyperoxia in the presence of food. Our work provides three insights into this process. First, these changes occur through activation of the hif-1 transcriptional pathway, which couples physiological and behavioral adaptations to environmental oxygen. Second, the hif-1 pathway acts both in neurons and in uv1 cells of the somatic gonad to modify oxygen preferences, suggesting that uv1 senses hypoxia through egl-9/hif-1 and signals to the nervous system, which also senses hypoxia. Third, the neuronal control of oxygen preference changes dramatically after cultivation in hypoxia. Even in the absence of food, where the behavioral responses appear similar, neuronal contributions are different.. The use of HIF-1 to modify oxygen preferences provides an elegant integrated solution to match physiological needs and behavioral priorities. C. elegans adapts to a range of environmental conditions by deploying ...

A systematic comparison of metastatic breast cancer cells to healthy breast cells revealed dramatic differences between the two cell lines in their mechanics, migration, oxygen response, protein production, and ability to stick to surfaces.. The new study details how cells make the transition from nonmalignant to metastatic, a process that is not well understood.. "By bringing together different types of experimental expertise to systematically compare metastatic and nonmetastatic cells, we have advanced our knowledge of how metastasis occurs," says Robert Austin, professor of physics at Princeton University.. The study also found that metastatic cells recover more rapidly from the stress of a low-oxygen environment than nonmetastatic cells, which is consistent with previous studies. Although the low-oxygen environment did kill many of the metastatic cells, the survivors rebounded vigorously, underscoring the likely role of individual cells in the spread of ...
Ditching home oxygen sure sounds like a good idea most of the time. Its inconvenient and annoying.. Over 10 years, Ive cared for more than a thousand people with low oxygen level.. One of the most common questions I am asked is, "Can you recover from low oxygen levels?". The more chronic your condition, the more likely you will be to need oxygen therapy to live a normal life.. Amazing recovery from low oxygen levels is certainly a possibility, it just wont happen without consistent effort on your part. NOTHING is impossible.. Its understandable that your focus is getting your life back to normal. You dont want to drag oxygen tanks around. In fact, you might be inclined to sit at home and wait to get better. I want to encourage you to get out there and live your life WITH your oxygen tank if you need it! (You may NEED it even if you dont think you do!). Your LIFE will becomes your exercise program when you insure safe oxygen levels while you get out there and LIVE!. If you push through your ...
Oxygen is a chemical element.[1] Oxygens atomic mass is slightly under 16, since it also has 8 neutrons (a slight amount of mass is "lost" in the energy contained in the subatomic bonds). The name "oxygen" means "acid maker": Many common acids -- nitric, sulfuric, phosphoric, etc. -- are just hydrogen nitrate, hydrogen sulfate, or hydrogen phosphate, where the nitrate, sulfate, and phosphate complexes involve oxygen. Under normal conditions oxygen is a colorless, odorless gas consisting of two oxygen atoms which has the chemical formula O2. This means it is diatomic. Approximately 20% of the atmosphere is made up of oxygen. Oxygen also forms a triatomic molecule called ozone (O3), which, although unstable under normal conditions, is a very important ingredient in the upper atmosphere, forming a layer which blocks most of the Suns ultraviolet radiation. Oxygen is highly reactive, and in many other elements and compounds undergo exothermic reactions with it (they burn or rust). If it were not ...
One of our members emailed me referencing a video where I talked about oxyfertigation and stated the oxygen uses less energy than aeration in the rafts. I was specifically talking about liquid oxygen in comparison the 80kw-h it would take to aerate the 3600m2 raft. However, it is a great question and one we will discuss in this article. In our scenario we were talking about a 110 liter per minute air pump using 125 watts of power verses an oxygen generator producing 4 liters per minute of oxygen and consuming 250 watts of power. Straight away we see the oxygen generator is using twice the power so it is easy to think it is not as efficient as the air pump. Lets take a closer look. Air Pump First we need to determine our oxygen transfer rate (OTR) for the system we are working with. I dont have that information handy so I will set up the system as running a minimum of 5mg/L dissolved oxygen, which is great for fish and system health. We will also be running our system temperature at 25 degrees ...
Things just didnt seem to go right today. It started last night, actually, when my pulse oximeter machine (it monitors my heart rate and oxygen saturation levels) continued to show that my heart rate was too low and alarmed off constantly. It has been happening for several days so Mommy called the DME company to report the problem. After 15 minutes on the phone going through various "fixes" they finally agreed that it was a problem when the lead was not attached to anything or anyone and came up with a oxygen saturation level of 86% and a heart rate of 160! The RT said she would get with their warehouse manager and get back with Mommy and shocker - they never called back. So its going to be another night with a broken pulse ox machine. Luckily, Nicole keeps a close eye on me since she cant trust the machine right now ...

At low oxygen pressure, hemoglobin is in the T-state. Transition occurs from the T-state to the R-state as the oxygen pressure is increase. The T- and R-states of hemoglobin are designated as and respectively with the subscripts indicating the number of oxygen molecules bound to that state. Thus, 52 where is the equilibrium constant given by: The factor 4 in the last equation is required to take into consideration of the four identical subunits capable of binding the first oxygen molecule, while the factor 1 indicates that there is only one subunit with a bound oxygen molecule. These segments can then be grafted onto gene segments coding for human FRs. The resulting antibody is known as humanized mouse antibody. The major question in manufacturing such antibodies is which human FRs should be used. Ideally, in order to maintain the avidity of a humanized mouse antibody, the mouse FRs should be matched against all known human FRs. The most similar human FRs should then be used. This can ...
A 29 year old man was admitted 36 hours after ingesting about 5 g paraquat. His arterial oxygen pressure fell progressively to 3.4 kPa (34 mm Hg), and pulmonary damage induced by paraquat was diagnosed. His condition did not improve after treatment with prednisolone and cyclophosphamide, but after irradiation both lungs cleared and arterial oxygen pressure started to improve. Irradiation of the lungs should be considered in patients who, after surviving the acute phase of poisoning with paraquat, show progressive deterioration of respiratory function. ...

Metazoans rely on aerobic energy production, which requires an adequate oxygen supply. During reduced oxygen supply (hypoxia), the most profound changes in gene expression are mediated by transcription factors known as hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs). HIF alpha proteins are commonly posttranslationally regulated by prolyl-4-hydroxylase (PHD) enzymes, which are direct "sensors" of cellular oxygen levels. We examined the molecular evolution of the metazoan PHD-HIF oxygen-sensing system by constructing complete phylogenies for PHD and HIF alpha genes and used computational tools to characterize the molecular changes underlying the functional divergence of PHD and HIF alpha duplicates. The presence of PHDs in metazoan genomes predates the emergence of HIF alphas. Our analysis revealed an unexpected diversity of PHD genes and HIF alpha sequence characteristics in invertebrates, suggesting that the simple oxygen-sensing systems of Caenorhabditis and Drosophila may not be typical of other invertebrate ...
Anyone who works with light curable resin knows about the so-called oxygen inhibition layer. This layer forms on the surface of the resin after light curing and has caused many clinicians to wonder whether their material is expired.. That is not the case; the explanation is simple. Light curable resin only fully polymerises in the absence of oxygen. Whenever ambient air (and thus oxygen) has access to the resin - this is even the case on the cured surface - there remains a thin unpolymerised layer.. This layer can be simply wiped off, but sometimes its very useful. When composite is built in layers, it ensures that each layer binds to the next. This is because each successive layer seals off the previous one from ambient air, thus allowing the previous layer to be completely polymerised. Removing the oxygen inhibition layer would prevent a solid bond from forming between the layers.. There are, however, situations where the formation of the inhibition layer is bothersome; for instance, when ...

Functional brain imaging techniques such as fMRI or PET measure regional changes in cerebral blood flow and oxygenation related to neuronal activity rather than neuronal activity itself. These changes are believed to spread over a larger area than the neuronal activity thus limiting spatial resolution of imaging techniques. It has been suggested that oxygen consumption increases before blood flow in the region of increased activity. An increased oxygen consumption would lead to an initial deoxygenation limited exactly to the aera of neuronal activity thus providing a signal detectable with techniques measuring blood oxygenation (e.g. BOLD-fMRI). To test the hypothesis of an initial deoxygenation we performed measurements of intravascular oxygen concentration in the somatosensory cortex of rats in response to a physiological stimulus (whisker deflection) using oxygen dependent phosphorescence quenching. Animals were anesthetized with chloralose/urethane and a closed cranial window was implanted ...
Oxygen saturation level is a key vital sign used in clinical medicine today. Severely low levels of oxygen in the blood can lead to hypoxemia, causing cellular hypoxia, organ dysfunction, and even death. However, the instrumentation used to measure oxygen saturation does not operate with the desired reliability for such an important metric, Group 9 said.. A pulse oximeter is a noninvasive device typically used to measure a patients oxygen saturation, but this apparatus has significant limitations in certain patient populations. False or inaccurate readings are often found in patients with poor peripheral circulation, vasodilatory states, or vasoconstrictive states. In order to obtain this measurement in these patient populations, the Intensive Care Unit must conduct a very painful, invasive procedure known as an arterial puncture, and draw a significant amount of blood from an arterial catheter in order to conduct the arterial blood gas test. The device that Group 9 is designing, however, aims ...

The kidneys are responsible for filtration of blood and removal of waste products of metabolism. Next to this function, they are also involved in the regulation of the bodys red blood cell mass and blood pressure, both of which are essential for homeostasis. For the former they sense renal tissue oxygenation and release erythropoietin (EPO), triggering the production of erythrocytes. Renal oxygenation thus has to reflect overall oxygen (O2) demand. Malfunction of renal O2 regulation can affect red blood cell mass and may lead to the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease. To date, kidney O2 regulation is poorly understood. With the help of computational methods and using the latest supercomputers, we aim to determine oxygen distribution in the kidney.. The proposed project involves the use and enhancement of mathematical models of oxygen transport in tissue. The studies will start from simplified models, which will be validated against literature, and ultimately applied to the actual vascular ...
Physical stress due to illness and infections consumes more oxygen as the body fights the invading bacteria. Stress produced from chemical toxins in the body reduces oxygen as the liver works harder to filter out toxins and waste. Emotional stress puts more strain on major organs such as the brain and heart which requires more oxygen to function. Emotional stress also produces adrenaline and adrenaline-related hormones that trigger the use of more oxygen. Lack of proper exercise prevents organs, muscles and cell tissue from absorbing more oxygen needed to revitalize. Without adequate rest, all body systems must continue to work hard, which requires more oxygen, and leads to oxygen deprivation.. ...
In the oxidation of propylene (propene, CH3-CH=CH2) to propylene oxide (propene oxide), an oxygen atom is formally inserted into the double bond. This forms a ring containing two carbon atoms and one oxygen atom. Using oxygen as the oxidizing agent had not been considered before because the oxygen molecule (O2) can only be split into individual oxygen atoms with the input of a large amount of energy. Furthermore, propylene preferentially reacts with atomic oxygen to form acrolein and not the desired propylene oxide. A suitable catalyst is eagerly sought, and has come to be viewed as the "holy grail" of catalyst research. There have been a number of catalytic developments that have been not quite satisfactory. Building upon prior work, Haruta and his team have been able to achieve a further step. Their new catalyst consists of gold clusters, which are less than 2 nm in size, deposited on a special titanium-containing silicalite support. "It is important that the gold used is not in the form of ...

Pathological changes in retinal microvasculature are known to be associated with systemic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes, and may result in potentially disadvantageous blood flow and impair oxygen distribution. Therefore, in order to improve our understanding of the link between systemic diseases and the retinal circulation, it is necessary to develop an approach to quantitatively determine the hemodynamic and oxygen transport parameters in the retinal vascular circulation. This thesis aims to provide more insights into the detailed hemodynamic features of the retinal arterial tree by means of non-invasive imaging and computational modelling. It covers the following two aspects: i) 3D reconstruction of the retinal arterial tree, and ii) development of an image-based computational model to predict blood flow and oxygen transport in realistic subject-specific retinal arterial trees. The latter forms the main body of the thesis. 3D reconstruction of the retinal arterial tree was ...
