    DECISIONS SERIES Oxygen Saturation A Guide to Laboratory Assessment BY SHANNON HAYMOND‚ PHD uman life depends on the oxygen transport by hemoglobin. In healthy patients‚ the majority of molecular oxygen (O2) is bound to hemoglobin and only a small fraction is dissolved in blood. But in patients with respiratory problems or certain metabolic and genetic disorders‚ the fraction of oxygenated hemoglobin can fall to dangerously low values. Therefore‚ laboratory assessment of oxygen saturation (SO2)—the

    Oxygen – Carbon dioxide Cycle The Carbon Dioxide- Oxygen Cycle relates to the relationship between Carbon Dioxide [CO2] breathing plants and Oxygen [O2] breathing life forms. All oxygen-breathing life forms take in Oxygen and exhale CO2. Plants take in the CO2 and use it in their photosynthesis process and in turn give off oxygen. The Carbon Dioxide-Oxygen Cycle is a continuously occurring process whereby animals inhale Oxygen and then exhale carbon dioxide‚ and plants use the CO2 and "exhale"

    REDUCTION Oxygen makes up only about 20% of the air‚ yet is the essential component for so many reactions. Without it fuels would not burn‚ iron would not rust and we would be unable to obtain energy from our food molecules through respiration. Indeed animal life on the planet did not evolve until a certain concentration of oxygen had built up in the atmosphere over 600 million years ago. The term oxidation has been in use for a long time to describe these and other reactions where oxygen is added
