Medical Oxygen

Oxygen is colourless, odourless and tasteless. It will vigorously support combustion and sustain life. It is supplied as a compressed gas in high pressure metal cylinders. 

In respiratory therapy, medical grade oxygen is administered to increase the amount of oxygen and thus decrease the amount of other gases circulating in the blood.
