Medical Oxygen

Oxygen is critical to life, in fact, almost all living things, including humans, need oxygen to survive. Both plants and animals take in oxygen from their surroundings to release energy.

Oxygen typically makes up 21% of Earth's atmosphere and oxygen also makes up around half of Earth's crust in the form of oxides.

The importance of Medical oxygen in the field of healthcare is vital. Medical oxygen is used every day in healthcare for resuscitation and inhalation therapy. Medical oxygen is believed to be the most common treatment given in hospitals in the developed world.

The potential value of oxygen for patients with respiratory conditions was quickly recognized after its discovery in 1771 by Carl Wilhelm Scheele, a German-Swedish pharmaceutical chemist. The 20th century saw a rapid succession of discoveries of oxygen's physiologic effects and technological advances that allowed its clinical application. Today, medical oxygen is on the World health Organization's list of essential medicines and modern medicine could not be practiced without the support of medical oxygen.

Medical oxygen is used to:

  • Carry out cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Restore tissue oxygen tension by improving oxygen availability in a wide range of conditions such as COPD, cyanosis, shock, severe hemorrhage, carbon monoxide poisoning, major trauma, cardiac/respiratory arrest
  • Provide life support for artificially ventilated patients
  • Carry out anaesthetic techniques
  • Aid cardiovascular stability

Contraindications/side effects: There are no absolute contraindications to the use of medical oxygen but the inspired concentration of oxygen should be limited in the case of premature infants and those patients with chronic bronchitis and emphysema. British Thoracic Society (BTS) guidelines on the safe therapeutic use of medical oxygen encourages proper assessment of the patient before use. The target oxygen saturation recommended depends on the condition being treated.
