Molecular oxygen (O2) is a vital element in human survival and plays a major role in a diverse range of biological and physiological processes. Although normobaric hyperoxia can increase arterial oxygen content ([Formula: see text]), it also causes vasoconstriction and hence reduces O2 delivery in various vascular beds, including the heart, skeletal muscle, and brain. Thus, a seemingly paradoxical situation exists in which the administration of oxygen may place tissues at increased risk of… 
Revisited Hyperoxia Pathophysiology in the Perioperative Setting: A Narrative Review
TLDR
It is suggested that the maintenance of PaO2 within physiological ranges, avoiding unnecessary oxygen administration, may be the basis for good clinical practice.
A General Overview on the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Applications, Mechanisms and Translational Opportunities
TLDR
The physiological relevance of oxygen and the therapeutical basis of HBOT are discussed in detail, collecting current indications and underlying mechanisms, and potential areas of research are examined, including inflammatory and systemic maladies, COVID-19 and cancer.
Effects of supplemental oxygen on systemic and cerebral hemodynamics in experimental hypovolemia: Protocol for a randomized, double blinded crossover study
TLDR
An experimental, randomized, double blinded crossover study to investigate the effect of 100% oxygen compared to room air delivered by a face mask with reservoir on systemic and cerebral hemodynamics during simulated hypovolemia in the lower body negative pressure model in 15 healthy volunteers.
Hyperoxia evokes pericyte-mediated capillary constriction.
TLDR
These findings establish pericytes as regulators of CBF in hyperoxia and 20-HETE synthesis as an oxygen sensor in CBF regulation and provide a mechanism by which clinically administered oxygen can lead to a worse neurological outcome.
Oxygen administration in patients recovering from cardiac arrest: a narrative review
TLDR
Exposure to PaO 2 > 300 mmHg through administration of unnecessary oxygen should be avoided because no obvious benefit has been demonstrated and considerable debate is ongoing because of inconsistent results.
Hyperoxia and the cardiovascular system: experiences with hyperbaric oxygen therapy
TLDR
It has been confirmed that oxidative stress injures the endothelium, and the reduced endothelial-derived vasodilators cause vasoconstriction, and heart rate is not decreased due to a direct vagal activation during hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Oxygen in metabolic dysfunction and its therapeutic relevance.
TLDR
It is suggested that oxygen availability has a key role in obesity and related comorbidities and intermittent hypoxia training and hyperoxia could be potential treatments through oxygen-related adaptations.
Hypoxemia During One-Lung Ventilation: Does it Really Matter?
TLDR
Current knowledge about the tolerable human limits of hypoxia, inside and outside the thoracic surgery room, is summarized and permissive hypoxemia as a protection against perioperative oxygen stress could be tolerable in highly selected patients is the objective of current research.
Investigating Disturbances of Oxygen Homeostasis: From Cellular Mechanisms to the Clinical Practice
TLDR
Concepts of cellular mechanisms regarding different forms of disturbed cellular oxygen homeostasis that may help to better define safe clinical application of oxygen therapy are summarized.
Human brain blood flow and metabolism during isocapnic hyperoxia: the role of reactive oxygen species
TLDR
ROS play a role in the regulation of CBF and metabolism during IH without evidence of BBB disruption or neural‐parenchymal damage, and Antioxidant defences were increased during ascorbic acid infusion, while CBF, CMR O2 , oxidant and NO bioavailability markers remained unchanged.

Bench-to-bedside review: the effects of hyperoxia during critical illness
TLDR
T careful titration of oxygen supply is warranted in order to secure adequate tissue oxygenation while preventing hyperoxic harm, and oxygen may be recognized as a multifaceted agent, a modifiable risk factor, and a feasible target for intervention.
Supplementary oxygen for nonhypoxemic patients: O2 much of a good thing?
TLDR
To avoidHyperoxia and hypocapnia should be avoided, with oxygen administered only to patients with evidence of hypoxemia and at a dose that relieves Hypoxemia without causing hyperoxia.
The oxygen therapy.
TLDR
Performing O(2) therapy requires a vast array of clinical and technical competences and the optimal integration of these competences is needed to optimize O( 2) therapy on individual bases.
Hyperoxic Brain Effects Are Normalized by Addition of CO2
TLDR
This study in healthy children suggests that supplementing hyperoxic administration with CO2 may mitigate central and peripheral consequences of hyperoxia, and led to responses in brain areas that modify hypothalamus-mediated sympathetic and hormonal outflow.
Hyperbaric Medicine for the Hospital-Based Physician
TLDR
Clinical trials support efficacy of HBO2 for acute CO poisoning, diabetic lower extremity wounds, crush injury, and radiation necrosis, and some of the disorders treated with HBO2 that hospital-based clinicians may be asked to evaluate.
Bench-to-bedside review: Oxygen as a drug
TLDR
A large body of data indicates that hyperoxia exerts an extensive profile of physiologic and pharmacologic effects that improve tissue oxygenation, exert anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects, and augment tissue repair mechanisms.
Acute hyperoxaemia-induced effects on regional blood flow, oxygen consumption and central circulation in man.
TLDR
This model appears suitable for the investigation of O(2)-related effects on the central and peripheral circulation in man, and findings suggest significant circulatory effects of hyperoxia.
Hyperoxia, reactive oxygen species, and hyperventilation: oxygen sensitivity of brain stem neurons.
TLDR
This mini-review summarizes the long-recognized, but seldom acknowledged, paradox of respiratory control known as hyperoxic hyperventilation and proposes mechanisms that may provide clues into the fundamental role of redox signaling and ROS in central control of breathing.
Hypoxemia, oxygen content, and the regulation of cerebral blood flow.
TLDR
The emerging picture supports the role of deoxyhemoglobin (associated with changes in CaO2 ) as the primary biological regulator of CBF, and the mechanisms for vasodilation appear more robust during hypoxemic hypoxia than during changes inCaO2 via hemodilution.
Stability of cerebral metabolism and substrate availability in humans during hypoxia and hyperoxia.
TLDR
In conclusion, marked elevations in CBF with progressive hypoxaemia and related reductions in CaO2 resulted in a well-maintained cerebral oxygen delivery, and cerebral metabolism is still supported almost exclusively by carbohydrate oxidation during severe levels of hypox aemia.
