Why is my fantail goldfish swimming at the top of the two day old bowl?
shes probably does not have enough oxygen so the air pump will help just put the damn thing in a tank though or pond asap

How do I know if I have enough oxygen in the water in my aquarium?
The goldfish test. If it floats belly up, not enough

Why is my pregnant wife snoring so much lately?
Take her to the doctor ASAP she might need a BiPAP or CPAP machine for this. (maybe the baby is also not getting enough oxygen)

Is it OK for a child to sleep very close to his/her parent's face? Wouldn't the carbon dioxide exhaled from the parent harm the child?
You realize that, during rescue breathing, people exhale enough oxygen to save the life of someone who's not breathing, correct?What you are suggesting is just not something to worry about

Can high altitudes interfere with your life?
It does not affect your life looking at in long term. If you move up there for maybe a few weeks the elevation can affect your body but your body eventually gets use to it. People say that when you move to higer elevation that there is less oxygen but that is completely misinterpreted. The oxygen level is always the same everywhere which roughly about 21% oxygen and 79% of a bunch of other stuff. The reason you might have felt light headed, dizzy, and nausated might have been because you were not getting enough oxygen into your body which is what helps circulate the blood in your body. I said there was 21% oxygen everywhere you go but the reason you felt this way was not because of oxygen, it was because of the drop in atmospheric pressure. When that happens your body tends to work harder to get that 21% of oxygen thats around you. So you really just needed to be in higher elevation for a longer period of time so your body can get use to it and build more blood cells so you would not feel so bad all the time. It takes about 2 weeks for your blood cells to accumulate to where you do not feel like your always out of breath. And the whole panic attacks anxiety and all that was probably from either personal issues or the fact that you were always light headed, dizzy etc. I bet your wondering how I know all this. I live in Flagstaff AZ where the elevation is at 7000 ft. and I have lived here for nearly 4 years. It was hard at first but I eventually got use to it and now I love it up here. So I know how you felt when you first moved up to higher elevation.

My chest hurts all the time and I feel as if I don't get enough oxygen. Please help.?
Hi There, Sorry to hear about all the breathing troubles and chest pains. I personally have asthma, and when I have an asthma attack, it truly takes a lot out of me. It does sound like you have some type of respiratory issue, and I am surprised doctors have yet to be able to diagnose the problem. I personally use a finger pulse oximeter to monitor my blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) and my pulse rate. I think it would be good for you to use something like that to help monitor and see how low your oxygen saturation drops to (typically should be above 90-99%, below 90% is not healthy). At least that way when you are experiencing these pains, you will have a sure understanding of where your oxygen level is and where your pulse rate is. Take that info to your doctor and see if he/she can determine the root of what is causing you these issues. I got my pc-60c oximeter from Pulse Oximeters Direct, cause they have some informative articles which gave me an understanding of how it works and monitors my pulse rate and SpO2. Take a look, hope that helps.

Why do I keep getting side pain when I'm running?
You could be dehydrated or you are not getting enough oxygen

Does grass alone produce enough oxygen for life?
Here is a great article from the University of Michigan that covers some of the topics relevant to your question.The article deals with the Net Primary Production (NPP) of CO2 in the world related to human consumption. NPP is the amount of CO2 that is "fixed" (i. e. , processed) by plants through photosynthesis minus the amount of CO2 that is produced by organisms through respiration. Therefore, to simplify things, the higher the NPP the lower the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.The article cites the following table from Atjay et al. 1979 and De Vooys 1979 which breaks down NPP by the type of ecosystem:(The numbers in the table are amount of surface area on Earth in km2 x 106 and the second number is the NPP in petagrams.)The article uses these figures to calculate the amount of NPP that is currently co-opted for human consumption. For example, they assume that all of the NPP associated with cultivated land goes toward human consumption. They conclude that 30. 7% of the terrestrial NPP and only 2. 2% of the aquatic NPP is co-opted by humans. These numbers are of course based off of 30 year old studies, but I think it's still safe to conclude that there's still room for more human-based CO2 production before NPP goes to zero.According to this 2002 study by Randerson, et al. , terrestrial heterotrophs (i. e. , organisms that need to breathe oxygen, like humans) produce 82-95% of the CO2 represented by the NPP. Let's be conservative and assume the higher amount: 95% NPP. That means that as long as the forests account for fewer than 5% of the total NPP then we should be fine. The forests produce 48. 7 Pg, however, which is a little under 22% of the total NPP.But wait! 13.6 Pg of NPP associated with forests is co-opted for human consumption (e.g., getting wood for building houses, &c.). If we were to get rid of all of the forests we would also get rid of that percentage that has already been co-opted. Therefore, if we were to get rid of all of the forests there would be a net loss of 48.7 Pg - 13.6 Pg = 35.1 Pg, which is about 16% of total NPP. That's just low enough to meet the lower bound of 82% CO2 production.Therefore, there is a small chance that there will be enough NPP after getting rid of all of the trees for human consumption, but it is likely not the case. Furthermore, if we were to get rid of all NPP producers other than grass there would certainly not be enough NPP for human survival.It's also important to note that, by far, the most productive producers of NPP are the open ocean, tropical rainforest, and temperate forest (see Figure 5 of the University of Michigan reference), so by deforesting as opposed to de-grassing we would be greatly reducing the efficiency of the global ecosystem. Also, as I mentioned in a comment above, there is also the matter of carbon storage. Trees store a good amount of the carbon from the CO2 they process in their trunks where it stays for a long time. Grass, on the other hand, releases its carbon back into the system shortly after it dies and rots away. Therefore, even if grass does produce enough oxygen for life, it probably would not have the same greenhouse gas reducing capabilities as trees.
