Oxygen print that page


element that readily forms compounds (notably oxides ) with almost all other elements. By mass, oxygen is the third most abundant element in the universe after hydrogen and helium [ 1 ] and the most abundant element by mass in the Earth's crust , making up almost half of the crust's mass

Oxygen sensor print that page


An oxygen sensor , or lambda sensor , is an electronic device that measures the proportion of oxygen (O 2 ) in the gas or liquid being analyzed. It was developed by the Robert Bosch GmbH company during the late 1960s under the supervision of Dr. Günter Bauman. The original sensing element

Oxygen therapy print that page


Room air only contains 21% oxygen , and increasing the fraction of oxygen in the breathing gas increases the amount of oxygen in the blood. It is often only required to raise the fraction of oxygen delivered to 30–35% and this is done by use of a nasal cannula . When 100% oxygen is needed

Oxygen plant print that page


Oxygen finds broad application in various technological processes and in almost all industry branches. The primary oxygen application is associated with its capability of sustaining burning process, and the powerful oxidant properties. Due to that, oxygen has become widely used in the metal

Oxygen toxicity print that page


The result of breathing elevated concentrations of oxygen is hyperoxia , an excess of oxygen in body tissues. The body is affected in different ways depending on the type of exposure. Central nervous system toxicity is caused by short exposure to high concentrations of oxygen at greater

Singlet oxygen print that page

Singlet oxygen is usually generated with a photosensitizer pigment. The damaging effects of sunlight on many organic materials (polymers, etc.) are often attributed to the effects of singlet oxygen . In photodynamic therapy , singlet oxygen is produced to kill cancer cells. Contents

Oxygen bar print that page


An oxygen bar is an establishment, or part of one, that sells oxygen for recreational use. Individual flavored scents may be added to enhance the experience. The flavors in an oxygen bar come from bubbling oxygen through bottles containing aromatic solutions before it reaches the nostrils

Oxygen concentrator print that page


An oxygen concentrator is a device providing oxygen therapy to a patient at minimally to substantially higher concentrations than available in ambient air. They are used as a safer, less expensive, and more convenient alternative to tanks of compressed oxygen . Common models retail at

Oxygen mask print that page


An oxygen mask provides a method to transfer breathing oxygen gas from a storage tank to the lungs . Oxygen masks may cover the nose and mouth (oral nasal mask) or the entire face (full-face mask). They may be made of plastic , silicone , or rubber . (Note: In certain circumstances, oxygen
