Latest Oxygen toxicity Stories
In a group of very low-birth-weight infants, severe retinopathy of prematurity was associated with nonvisual disabilities at age 5 years.
According to new research appearing this month in Ophthalmology, the journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), premature children face a much greater risk of eventually experiencing retinal detachment than their full-term counterparts.
In a randomized trial performed to help resolve the uncertainty about the optimal oxygen saturation therapy in extremely preterm infants.
The researchers behind a large study on the effects of oxygen levels on premature infants have been reprimanded by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for failing to inform the parents of those children of the risks involved with the study.
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, recently teamed up with OxyHealth, a medical industry leader in hyperbaric chamber therapy, to help
Inhaling small amounts of hydrogen in addition to concentrated oxygen may help stem the damage to lung tissue that can occur when critically ill patients are given oxygen for long periods of time.
The most toxic free radical appears responsible for much of the lung damage that can result from oxygen therapy in the critically ill or injured.
NEW YORK, April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientists have shown that through eye exams at the crib-side, doctors can identify infants who are most likely to benefit from early treatment for a potentially blinding eye condition called retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), resulting in better vision for many children. See video from National Eye Institute at: http://inr.mediaseed.tv/NEI_37353 ROP is one of the most common causes of vision loss in children and affects an estimated 15,000 premature infants...
