Split Rock Room

Description: For years, the theory on oxygen has been, “If a little is good, more is better”.  New research is showing us that this may not be accurate.  We will examine some of the latest science on oxygen administration and talk about the pathophysiology of oxygen toxicity and the ensuing effects on the body.

Objectives:

  • The student will be able to discuss the most current science regarding oxygen administration.
  • The student will be able to explain the pathophysiology of oxygen toxicity.
  • The student will be able to discuss topics related to the oxy-hemoglobin dissociation curve and how oxygen concentration relates to perfusion.
