Why is oxygen so important?
Every day an average adult consumes 2 kg of food, 1 liter of water and almost 550 liters of oxygen. 90 %of our daily energy comes from oxygen and the rest food and water. Human brain is 2 % of the totalweight and uses 25% of the oxygen we breath. We need this oxygen for the energy cycle that sustainslife. When we do not have enough oxygen in our body tissues a series of events occur that if not corrected lead to disease conditions, either infection, tissue destruction or both. If there is low oxygen intissues (hypoxia) there is a short window of opportunity to correct it. An excellent method to correcttissue hypoxia is by using a hyperbaric chamber.
