Oxygen Toxicity is associated with which of the following

  1. a) Failure of ventilation of Lungs
  2. b) Blood Poisoning
  3. c) The collapse of the alveolar wall
  4. d) Both B and C

Answer: a) Failure of ventilation of Lungs

Explanation: When the lungs breathe too much supplemental oxygen, it causes damage. This damage is termed oxygen poisoning or oxygen toxicity. The higher concentration of oxygen increases the partial pressure of the alveolar sac and thereby results in the failure of ventilation of the lungs.
