Oxygen and You

How Oxygen Affects the Body

Oxygen’s Effects on Your Body

Oxygen is essential to a properly functioning body. However, for people with chronic lung diseases, having enough blood oxygen can be challenging. To help you better understand how oxygen is used in the parts of the body, the risks of low blood oxygen and ways to improve your oxygen levels, we’ve created an interactive person called Oxygen and You.

Click on the body parts or titles on the left to learn about how oxygen affects specific organs. A box will pop-up over the body with a description. Click the more button inside the box for the opportunity to read an article about how oxygen affects that specific body part. We hope you enjoy Oxygen and You.
