Guide to using supplementary oxygen
Why we need oxygen? In order to sustain life our bodies take in oxygen at each breath. Clean dry air at sea level contains about 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen and small amounts of other gases. Oxygen molecules move from the tiny alveoli cells in our lungs into the bloodstream where they are circulated throughout the body by the heart.
Can I overdose on Oxygen?
Many Australians have some form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is a broad term that includes sufferers of emphysema, chronic bronchitis and chronic asthma or a combination of any of these three diseases. A chronic disease is a long-lasting condition that can be controlled but not cured.
