Supplemental oxygen is often administered to induce hyperoxia in nonhypoxic patients for indications such as chest pain, despite lack of evidence of clinical benefit. Induced hyperoxia is potentially toxic, since it may increase oxidative stress and peroxidative damage to deoxyribonucleic acid, lipids and proteins. The aim of this study was to establish whether supplemental oxygen induces oxidative stress in nonhypoxic subjects. Breath markers of oxidative stress were measured in 31 healthy… CONTINUE READING
