Best Answer

The purpose is to increase oxygen saturation in tissues where the saturation levels are too low due to illness or injury.

Does partial pressure of oxygen increase during exercise?

You can consume up to ten times as much oxygen in exercise as at rest, and produce the same increase in CO2.


Which statement best describes normal transitional physiology at the time of birth?

Babies may take as long as 10 minutes after birth to increase their oxygen saturation to greater than 90%.


What happens when hemoglobin levels increase in your body?

hemoglobin is a protein, helps store energy in the cells ================================== Haemoglobin, a protein, is rather known as the oxygen/carbon dioxide carrier. Tucked safely inside the red blood cells, they bind to oxygen molecules from the lungs (alveoli) (four oxygen molecules per haemoglobin), and carry them, in the blood stream, to the tissues. While at the tissues, they release the oxygen as needed. Haemoglobins also carry carbon dioxide from the tissues to the alveoli, where the carbon dioxide molecules are released. (gas exchange). More informations at the related links.


What stimulates blood to release oxygen to tissues?

Blood releases its oxygen into the tissues at the capillary level.


What is the relationship between oxygen saturation and primary productivity?

Your body needs a certain amount of oxygen to maintain whatever level of activity that you are engaging in. The more demanding the activity, the more oxygen your body will need. As your oxygen level decreases due to activity, you will notice a drop in your coordination. Continued exertion at an inadequate level of oxygenation will cause your body to do whatever is necessary to slow you down or stop you. Depending on what you are doing at that time, this can be hazardous to you. I have a pulse-ox monitor to keep track of my oxygen saturation level. I have to move slower than I used to in order to maintain a healthy level of saturation. Fortunately, my job is such that when I have to, I can sit down and recover when necessary. I am still able to maintain primary productivity, I just have to be more careful than someone who has no problem with blood oxygen saturation.

Can you have hypoxia with a 100 percent oxygen content?

Hypoxia refers to the saturation of oxygen in tissues. If you are taking oxygen therapy, even with 100% oxygen, it is still possible for some tissues not to get the right amount of oxygen due to circulatory problems.


What happens if oxygen saturation is 50 percent?

if the oxygen saturation is 50% it means the total hemoglobin content of blood is half saturated with oxygen. in this condition the oxygen delivery to the tissues is the maximum.


Can a person increase their oxygen saturation levels?

Exercise regularly. Exercise increases blood circulation and oxygen levels. Walking, swimming and jogging are just a few exercises to help increase oxygen saturation. Lose weight and stop/quit smoking. In a medical situation, you can improve oxygen saturation by providing breathing oxygen.


How could you increase patients oxygen saturation?

Put the patient on oxygen instead of room air.


What happens when your oxygen saturation drop when you are on and off the ventilator?

When your oxygen saturation levels drop, your blood is not carrying enough oxygen to provide your body the levels it needs. If they drop low enough, your body will shut down and you can die. If you are hooked to a ventilator, this will help the body increase the oxygen saturation levels in your blood, potentially saving your life.


What factors are considered when oxygen therapy is recommended?

The need for supplemental oxygen is determined by inadequate oxygen saturation, indicated in blood gas measurements, pulse oximetry, or clinical observations.


Does hemoglobin's affinity for oxygen increase or decrease with exercise?

It decreases due to the increase in carbon dioxide in the blood. This causes more oxygen to be uploaded to the tissues


What are the long term effects of increased oxygen diffusion rate?

An increase in diffusion rates in tissues favours oxygen movement from the capillaries to the tissues, and carbon dioxide from the cells to the blood. Also With some training these rates increase, allowing oxygen and carbon dioxide to diffuse more rapidly.


How does long term exercise affect oxygen diffusion rates?

An increase in diffusion rates in tissues favours oxygen movement from the capillaries to the tissues, and carbon dioxide from the cells to the blood. Also With some training these rates increase, allowing oxygen and carbon dioxide to diffuse more rapidly.


What is the function of oximeter?

The pulse oximeter (or oxymeter) measure the oxygen saturation of hemoglobin. If the hemoglobin levels are normal this will give an estimate of how much oxygen is being delivered to the tissues and if abnormal can suggest lung or heart disease.


What are oximeters?

It is a device for measuring the oxygen saturation of arterial blood.


Oxygen Saturation results mean?

Oxygen saturation is the extent to which the blood is carrying as much oxygen as it is capable of doing. It is measured as a percentage. Oxygen saturation is the percentage of oxygen in the blood stream. Doctors become concerned when that percentage drops below 90%. It simple terms, at 82%, your brain other other organs are not receving enough oxygen to properly function. Anyone's oxygen saturation level varies from one moment in time to another. If you had a full copy of your sleep study report you might see reference to peak saturation (the highest saturation seen during the study), average saturation, saturation nadir (the lowest saturation recorded during the study), among other terms.
