Is Is Bad To Breathe Pure Oxygen
Yes and No: Breathing 100% oxygen can be harmful over time. Symptoms may include disorientation, breathing problems, and vision changes. Prolonged high oxygen doses cause damage to cell membranes and can cause seizures. However, sometimes breathing pure oxygen is necessary for treatment of carbon monoxide poisoning or in adult respiratory distress syndrome (ards). ...Read more
Why is it bad to breathe pure oxygen and is it true it strips down the molecules to a single electron or what?
Ozone: Ozone or o3 is not healthy nor safe to breath. It is a powerful oxidant - causing irritation to lung tissues and to mucus membranes of the mouth and nose and eyes. Fortunately it is not a stable compound and degrades rapidly but still it is not something that you want to be around. It isn't all bad though - it is the ozone layer of the atmosphere that protects us from uv light. ...Read more

Salon worker?: Liquid monomer commonly refers to a monomer in acrylic nails, called ethyl methacrylate . it replaces a riskier monomer called methyl methacrylate. But it is not risk free. It depends on amount of exposure, duration of exposure and your underlying health. It can cause allergies, asthma, and dermatitis (rash). Workers with poor ventilation are at higher risk. Salons can be toxic places. ...Read more
Depends on situation: Part of the bodies mechanism for deciding when to breathe is controlled by co2 sensors in the main blood vessels. In some medical conditions (like copd), when excess oxygen is given to patients & drops the co2 level, their sensors stop the automatic breathing cycle until it builds back up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

His oxygen level at 92 but has severe COPD. Is it safe to add oxygen now? Very out of breath all the time.
A VERY GOOD: QUESTION!! At a certain point in severe COPD the low Oxygen level is the ONLY stimulus to BREATHING ( the addition of Oxygen can result in apnea (lack of breathing and ultimately DEATH!) Therefore usually the supplemental tank will not contain PURE Oxygen! His PULMONOLOGIST is the person who should deal with this issue!! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more
Oxygen preferred: Two oxygen molecular (20% of air inhaled) oxygen is what we normally breath in. Triatomic molecule, trioxygen is ozone, which is blocked largely by protective ozone layer in atmosphere. Over time, there has been some loss of ozone layer, but still only makes up about 6 parts per million of the atmosphere. It is an oxidant and therefore damaging to respiratory system, prob above100 ppb. ...Read more
What is ketone breath and what does it smell like, and is it comparable to any other types of bad breath?
Yes & no: You have one chance to deliver the baby & begin allowing them to be independent of your body. If you want a dependent child, carry them all the time & give them the idea that is the way it must be. If you want a child that begins the trial & errors of self discovery & self reliance, let them be alone when appropriate & find ways to self comfort. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: What are your saturations? You should keep them around/above 90% then you are getting just enough and not too much. I strongly recommend investing in a pulse oximeter, as medicare does not pay for oxygen at night and as needed as we used to prescribe before. Now the only way you can get oxygen is if you get a prescription for 24/7. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
