The mere fact that with a comparatively small hyperoxygenation of our blood we can hold out against it is surely a proof in itself that no very great change would be needed to enable animal life to endure it."
(Ozone is indeed dangerous to breathe, explains Yuri -- it causes hyperoxygenation -- but this liquefied form is quite safe, bypassing the lungs and going straight to the veins.) All three beds in the room are occupied, two of them by Helena and her son Adam who hail from Sweden by way of Britain.
The authors observed that the hyperoxygenation of seawater resulted in a two-fold increase of immunoglobulins, from 3.9 mg [mL.sup.-1] in running seawater, to 7.1 mg [mL.sup.-1] at 12 ppm [O.sub.2] [L.sup.-1].
(2) A recent report summarizes small, nonhomogenous studies of near-infrared spectroscopy for frontal lobe oxygenation during liver transplantation, identifying impaired cerebral autoregulation, cerebral deoxygenation during the anhepatic phase, and cerebral hyperoxygenation with graft reperfusion.
(17) In some regions, the use of hyperoxygenation for some white cultivars may become more important in helping to provide longevity.

After the hyperoxygenation, mechanical ventilator disconnection was performed and after 10 seconds of spontaneous breathing, the digital vacuometer was connected manually in the end of an expiration to the artificial airway, keeping the airways occluded for up to 60 seconds and recording the values corresponding to each inspiratory effort.

However, the court of appeals held that the pediatrician's superior knowledge of the increased risk of hyperoxygenation should have enabled him to use his best judgment instead of relying on the indefensible local custom.
Significant differences were reported between registered nurses and respiratory therapists for hyperoxygenation before suctioning, hyperventilation versus bag mask ventilation, instillation of saline to the closed system, oral and nasal suctioning, and brushing teeth using toothbrushes or swabs (Kjonegaard et al., 2010).
Dexmedetomidine protects blood S-minolevulinate dehydratase from inactivation caused by hyperoxygenation in total intravenous anesthesia.
Hyperventilation and hyperoxygenation increase pulmonary congestion in patients with left-to-right shunt and, hence, have to be avoided.
