Study name: Cognitive Performance, Hyperoxia, and Heart Rate Following Oxygen Administration in Healthy Young Adults
Gender/sex and ability: Twenty-one female and eleven male volunteers with a mean age of 21.06 years
Type of exercise used: Word recall and simple reaction-time tasks, drawn from the Cognitive Drug Research Ltd computerized assessment battery (44, 45) were run.
Intensity of exercise: N/A
Percent (%) of oxygen used: 99.9%
Research/study findings: Supplemental oxygen significantly improves cognitive performance in healthy adults. Compared with people who breathed normal air, which is 21 percent oxygen, those who breathe 90 percent oxygen perform better on recall tests and reaction time.
Oxygen Plus application/implication: Oxygen Plus may help improve cognitive performance, helping enhance the performance of both memory and reaction time.
