Hypocapnia (Lowered CO2) in the Blood Leads to Reduced Oxygenation

Under clinical conditions, low oxygen and low carbon dioxide generally occur together. Therapeutic increase of carbon dioxide, by inhalation of this gas diluted in air, is often an effective means of improving the oxygenation of the blood and tissues.[1] Carbon dioxide is one of the most important gases for life. It is healthy and extremely … Continue reading Hypocapnia (Lowered CO2) in the Blood Leads to Reduced Oxygenation
