Title : Effects Of 92% Oxygen Administration On Cognitive Performance And Physiological Changes Of Intellectually And Developmentally Disabled People

[2min read] The administration of 92% oxygen can positively affect (at least in the short term), the working memory of those with intellectual and developmental disability. The study involves 14 mixed male and females volunteers (aged 34±8years old) with intellectual and developmental disabilities, performing cognitive tasks in normal environment (21% oxygen) and in hyperoxic environment (92% oxygen). SpO2 and heart rate were gauged as they adapt to the environment. The volunteers were asked to press the button when a certain number appeared and their response time was taken. Results showed that the volunteers had better accuracy while having higher SpO2 levels and lower heart rates during the tests.
