oxygenation

 [ok″sĭ-jĕ-na´shun]
saturation with oxygen.
extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) a technique of providing respiratory support; the blood is circulated through an artificial lung consisting of two compartments separated by a gas-permeable membrane, with the blood on one side and the ventilating gas on the other. It was originally used exclusively in newborns but is now being used more and more in adults.
high pressure oxygenation (hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO)) see hyperbaric oxygenation.
pulsed oxygenation a technique by which oxygen is delivered to the patient only during inhalation rather than continuously during the respiratory cycle; used to conserve oxygen in patients using chronic low-flow oxygen therapy at home.
transtracheal oxygenation a technique of oxygen administration for patients requiring chronic oxygen therapy, in which oxygen is administered at low flow through a catheter passing directly into the trachea. This may be more cosmetic for patients and may require a lower flow of oxygen than other methods such as the use of a nasal cannula.

(ok'si-jĕ-nā'shŭn),
1. Addition of oxygen to any chemical or physical system.
2. Specifically used to describe interventions that provide greater oxygen supply to lungs and thus the circulation.

Patient discussion about oxygenation

Q. hi my name is ray i am from england and i am on oxygen i am a retainer of carbon monxide do you guys know whoa any place working with stem cell or natural medical emial rsantolla@aol.co.uk

A. i had a whole course on stem cell use in tissue engineering and from what i know this is an area that still in research and very little clinical use. the ability to create lungs from Mesenchimal Stem Cells is a far away dream right now. but here are some links to labs that research that area:

Q. HONEY Use honey to seal MRSA (METHICILLIN-RESISTANT STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS) wound.

A. honey has an antimicrobial activity due to it's acidity, osmotic power and hydrogen peroxide. about MRSA - there is a New Zealandic research about a type of honey that is effective against infections of MRSA. but it's only one research and another investigation is required.

Although the O2C provides information about tissue oxygenation as well as tissue perfusion and hemoglobin content and velocity, only oxygenation values (%S[O.
The debate is whether to use ICP or CPP targeted management to maintain adequate CBF, because CPP is a more reliable indicator of cerebral oxygenation than ICP alone.
The researchers concluded that, since Hemopure sustains heart tissue oxygenation and function during severe coronary artery constriction, the product may prevent cardiocirculatory complications such as heart failure in patients with coronary artery disease undergoing acute normovolemic hemodilution.

According to the company, Noxivent inhaled nitric oxide, in conjunction with ventilatory support and other appropriate agents, is indicated for the treatment of term and late pre-term (>=34 weeks) neonates with hypoxic respiratory failure associated with clinical or echocardiographic evidence of pulmonary hypertension, where it improves oxygenation and reduces the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
In severe respiratory failure, extracorporal membrane oxygenation support is life-saving, but it has been started to be used in pediatric intensive care units in our country very recently.
