Explaining – Dissolved/ Bound Oxygen in the Blood

As we were saying, at low oxygen levels, haemoglobin is mostly in the tense state, and binding is limited, which explains the small slope of our curve at low oxygen levels. As oxygen levels increase, more oxygen is bound to haemoglobin, which allows it to assume the relaxed state, which will bind oxygen much more readily.

Oxygen transport

Basic haemoglobin saturation curve. It is moved to the right in higher acidity (more dissolved carbon dioxide) and to the left in lower acidity (less dissolved carbon dioxide)

About 98.5% [15] [citation neededof the oxygen in a sample of arterial blood in a healthy human breathing air at sea-level pressure is chemically combined with the haemoglobin. About 1.5% is physically dissolved in the other blood liquids and not connected to haemoglobin. The haemoglobin molecule is the primary transporter of oxygen in
mammals and many other species (for exceptions, see below). Haemoglobin has an oxygen binding capacity between 1.36 and 1.40 ml O2 per gram haemoglobin.

Hydrogen peroxide as a disinfectant

Is used in hospitals to disinfect surfaces and it is used in solution alone or in combination with other chemicals as a high-level disinfectant. Hydrogen peroxide is sometimes mixed with colloidal silver. It is often preferred because it causes far fewer allergic reactions than alternative disinfectants. Also used in the food packaging industry to disinfect foil containers. A 3% solution is also used as an antiseptic.

New Insights into Oxygen Therapy for Wound Healing

Delivering Oxygen From the “Outside In”: The Role of Skin Permeability

Oxygen can diffuse through any gas permeable surface, and can, therefore, enter the skin.

Topical oxygen therapies are designed to allow oxygen to enter the wound or skin via the external surface of the body rather than from capillaries within. The oxygen is therefore delivered directly to the wound and the systemic side effects are eliminated.   Topical oxygen therapy may be delivered to the external surfaces of the body…

Neuropathy – (Good Video to watch)

Part of the reason for diabetic peripheral neuropathy is harm to the Schwann cells which type the myelin sheath round peripheral nerves. Schwann cell harm probably happens for metabolic causes and may result in areas of demyelination
