Dr. Troy Sedlmeyer answered:

How do I use oxygen at home?

Depends on need

Oxygen
A person generally must be tested to qualify for home oxygen use. If tested, this usually determines your need. You may need it only at bedtime. You may need it only when active or 24 hours a day if you have certain health conditions (usually heart or lung disease). Oxygen can be in a tank, canister, or home oxygen concentrator that connects to the nose, mouth, or face with tubing.

Dr. Steven Neish answered:

Is blood oxygen level 93 ok?

It depends

Oxygen
If you live at sea level, and the pulse oximetry machine if functioning normally, your arterial oxygen saturation should be higher than 93%. If you live at high altitude, the partial pressure of oxygen in the air is lower and, depending on how high you are, an oxygen saturation level of 93% may be normal.

Why does the body need oxygen?

Cellular respiration

Oxygen
Oxygen is a final electron acceptor in the mitochondrial electron transport system (ETS), which is a component of cellular respiration. Cellular respiration is needed for the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the energy currency of the body. It is needed for virtually all living functions, only one of which is muscle contraction. Cyanide kills by paralyzing ETS.

Dr. Allen Seely answered:

How does your baby use oxygen?

OXYGEN for ENERGY

Blood
Biochemically, Oxygen (O2) is REQUIRED for energy production for EVERY living cell. Oxygen is transported by the blood bound to Hemoglobin (red pigment in Red cells). Oxygen is then delivered to the cells via simple diffusion. Oxygen is taken up by the Mitochondria of the cells where Oxidation and Phosporylation are COUPLED to make ATP (energy molecule). Oxygen converted to H20 in process.

what is the oxygen poor blood?

Few basic reasons

Blood
Haemoglobin- a protein molecule, carries o2 in the blood Vs called arteries and after o2 is used by tissues, the deoxyg. Hb is carried by vessels called Veins -> heart -> lungs to get new o2 molec. added. When Hb is low in quantity or abnl.in str-> o2 is low in blood. Iron,folate,B12 deficiency- anemia o2 defective basic str.as in Thalssemia,sicklecell dz. 2.Heart defects->mixing A &Venous bloo
