Pharmacology

Indication

For use as a source of clean air Label.

Pharmacodynamics

Acts as a source of clean air to support respiration Label.

Mechanism of action

Air is approximately 21% oxygen which enters the body through the lungs, crossing the alveolar membrane to reach systemic circulation 1. One there it is bound by hemoglobin and transported to tissues thoughout the body where it is used as a terminal electron acceptor in oxidative phosphorylation. This allows efficient generation of adenosine triphosphate, the primary storage molecule for energy, in the mitochondria.
