ABSTRACT
Oxygen breathing in patients with untreated severe arterial hypertension does not affect cardiac output, blood pressure or systemic vascular resistance. For this reason oxygen treatment can safely be administered without fear of precipitating hypertensive crisis or left ventricular failure. The lack of adverse hemodynamic reactions moreover facilitates oxygen transport.
