Another amazing bit of new medical science.
The ability to temporarily inject oxygen directly into the bloodstream when normal aspiration fails.....

Newly developed oxygen particles injected into blood could save lives...


Cats.....what more does one need?

the science fiction of the past generally leads to the science fact of the future

back on topic I wonder if this kind of thing would be possible in a non hospital setting such as first aid kits or if it would require to large a dose like an IV

however on the down side I see potential for abuse by unscrupulous athletes

Oxygen is a corrosive element so you will have to be careful how much
extra gets infused into the human body...Girls, it will not do
your wrinkles any good at all having too much oxygen working inside you.

I thought that oxygen directly in your blood stream = deadz? I am interested in this technique but am not interested in having it preformed on me haha!

I didn't know oxygen is bad for the wrinkles. But then again, there are a lot of things I don't know...

More oxygen in the body increase oxidisation of your cells. Cell quality
deteriorates accordingly and much faster too if the oxygen levels in the
body are increased. Oxidised cells show up in/on the skin as wrinkles
most apparent in older people. But if you were to increase the oxygen levels
in your environment then in time skin wrinkles would start to appear on your
skin at a younger age.

So people who live at high Altitudes will be more prone to wrinkles? (reaching)

I would assume no change, T'....
The quantity of air does reduces but it's constituent ratio's stay the same.
The body at high altitude generates more red blood cell enabling it to
absorb more oxygen out from this air per inhalation. So although the quantity
of oxygen in each inhalation is lower more oxygen per inhalation is absorbed
due to the increase in the bodies red blood cells.
