Oxygen (O2) is a colourless, odourless reactive gas. It is the most prevalent element in the earth's crust, mostly in oxides, silicates, and carbonates, and makes up just under 21% of the atmosphere. In addition to its usage as a respiratory gas in healthcare, oxygen possesses strong oxidising capabilities that can assist various businesses by increasing yields, enhancing performance, lowering costs, and lowering carbon emissions compared to alternative fuels.
Oxygen enrichment or replacement improves the efficiency of chemical and biological processes. High-pressure breathing of pure oxygen can cause nausea, dizziness, muscular twitching, and vision loss. Additionally, giddiness, mental disorientation, loss of judgement, lack of coordination, weakness, nausea, fainting, loss of consciousness, and death are all possible side effects of low oxygen levels. Oxygen levels in the air should be 20.9%; therefore, anything below 19.5% and above 23.5% can produce some of the above hazards.
