Oxygen is highly dangerous. Remember: All murderers breathe oxygen every day!

I like to keep my consumption down to about 21% in any one lungfull - any more than that is just too dangerous.

I enjoy it a lot mixed with nitrogen, argon, carbon dioxide, water vapor and some other gases.

I am too much used to it to give a proper description. The only thing I know is that it is best used for inhalation in a 20% solution in a mixture as described in refugee's post.  I would not be able to tell about my experiences without oxygen.

Oxygen is a chemical element with symbol O and atomic number 8. Its name derives from the Greek roots ὀξύς (oxys) ("acid", literally "sharp", referring to the sour taste ofacids) and -γόνος (-gοnos) ("producer", literally "begetter"), because at the time of naming, it was mistakenly thought that all acids required oxygen in their composition. Atstandard temperature and pressure, two atoms of the element bind to form dioxygen, colorless, odorless, tasteless diatomic gas with the formula O2. This compound is an important part of the atmosphere, and is necessary to sustain terrestrial life.

Oxygen is a member of the chalcogen group on the periodic table and is a highly reactivenonmetallic element that readily forms compounds (notably oxides) with almost all other elements. Oxygen is a strong oxidizing agent and has the second-highestelectronegativity of all reactive elements, second only to fluorine.[1] By mass, oxygen is the third-most abundant element in the universe, after hydrogen and helium[2] and themost abundant element by mass in the Earth's crust, making up almost half of the crust's mass.[3] Free oxygen is too chemically reactive to appear on Earth without thephotosynthetic action of living organisms, which use the energy of sunlight to produce elemental oxygen from water. Elemental O2 only began to accumulate in the atmosphere after the evolutionary appearance of these organisms, roughly 2.5 billion years ago.[4]Diatomic oxygen gas constitutes 20.8% of the volume of air.[5]

Because it comprises most of the mass in water, oxygen comprises most of the mass of living organisms (for example, about two-thirds of the human body's mass[6]). All major classes of structural molecules in living organisms, such as proteinscarbohydrates, andfats, contain oxygen, as do the major inorganic compounds that comprise animal shells, teeth, and bone. Elemental oxygen is produced by cyanobacteriaalgae and plants, and is used in cellular respiration for all complex life. Oxygen is toxic to obligately anaerobic organisms, which were the dominant form of early life on Earth until O2 began to accumulate in the atmosphere. Another form (allotrope) of oxygen, ozone (O3), helps protect the biosphere from ultraviolet radiation with the high-altitude ozone layer, but is a pollutant near the surface where it is a by-product of smog. At even higher low earth orbitaltitudes atomic oxygen is a significant presence and a cause of erosion for spacecraft.[7]

Oxygen was independently discovered by Carl Wilhelm Scheele, in Uppsala, in 1773 or earlier, and Joseph Priestley in Wiltshire, in 1774, but Priestley is often given priority because his work was published first. The name oxygen was coined in 1777 by Antoine Lavoisier,[8] whose experiments with oxygen helped to discredit the then-popularphlogiston theory of combustion and corrosionOxygen is produced industrially byfractional distillation of liquefied air, use of zeolites with pressure-cycling to concentrate oxygen from air, electrolysis of water and other means. Uses of oxygen include the production of steel, plastics and textiles; rocket propellantoxygen therapy; and life support in aircraft, submarines, spaceflight and diving.

before my op, they put a mask on me, some liquid in my arm, and then wheeled me into the surgery area.


I remember seeing a light shine on me, they marked my abdomen with an arrow, then i woke up to a nurse saying, "welcome back"

Yeah oxygene.... it is kind of important even when you are under anesthetic

I use it everyday, but I try not to have too much. Usually have it with a lot of Nitrogen and a little Carbon Dioxide

Oxygen is also quite flammable.  Best if you don't bring your oxygen tank around a campfire or other open flames.

Oxygen atoms like to hang out in pairs.  I find that suspicious.

So do hydrogen atoms when they date oxygen atoms. They make some really lethal stuff together. Scary!
