<font color='#000080'>OK, I need to find some other illnesses/problems that a high level of O2 can help with. I heard that it's used in treatment of gaut, but can't remember any others.

In short, I'm developing an O2/clean air tent, and need to be able to identify some other target markets.

Can anyone think of a group that would benefit from very low particles in the air other than asthmatics triggered by this?

Anyone know who I could sell the idea to? I've got a portable O2/clean air room, that I'd much rather sell to someone else for production and marketing/sales. I'm aware that there's much less money to be made, but it wouldn't be my money anyway.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not a medic or anything related, but I remember reading that hyperbaric + O2 treatment is often given to treat infections, necrosis of the skin, gangrene. A whole bunch of microbes and other nasties prefer anaerobic environments, and zapping them with extra doses of O2 is helpful.

Often used in sports/atheletes injuries. CO poisoning is a big favourite too.

<font color='#000080'>RIght. This is great. Lots of websites turning up now.

Thanks for this guys. Anyone got any ideas on particle-free environments? There's a fairly advanced filter and fan running into it, so it'd be completely dust-free (other than the person inside it making a mess everywhere!!!)

I have had 02 treatment for this but it was under presure. I was told it was possable in ambient presure but would taker about 24 hours.

Cause: cracked manifold on my MR2

<font color='#000080'>OK, all good. Now, anyone got a source for most of these words in French? It's never just as simple as having your own translator these days.

Thanks in advance, if anyone can help me now, anyway!

<font color='#000080'>Cluster headaches? Well, looks like there's more research to do. I think I might make passing reference to the hangover cure that it might or might not be.

I hate uni. Oh yes. I'm in my bedroom, and have been all day, writing a presentation in another language about something I don't understand in english!

Anyone know what a dust-mite is in french? Buggered if I can find it.
