7 Things You Should Know About Diabetic Foot Care

diabetes success story

Diabetes can lead to complications[1] involving the feet, including peripheral neuropathic pain, diabetic foot ulcers, poor circulation, decreased sensation and increased callus formation. This can lead to skin breakdown and the formation of ulcers that can become infected and even lead to amputations. Proper diabetic foot care can decrease the risk of developing these complications. Read on to learn about the case of Chase L., who suffered from severe diabetes with complications involving both feet and who experienced significant pain relief through the application of the non-invasive deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator D’OXYVA[2]

Chase was a 64-year-old male patient with a 7-year history of type 2 diabetes mellitus. He had high blood sugar levels for a 3-year period before his diagnosis, as well as a history of elevated cholesterol and triglycerides and high blood pressure. On laboratory testing, Chase had an A1C level of 8.3% (normal A1C levels are less than 5.7%) and a blood sugar reading of 186 (normal readings are 70-110). 

On physical exam, Chase exhibited ingrown toenails, pallor of the feet, cyanosis of the toes and thick callus formation of the heels. In addition, he had decreased sensation over the dorsum of both feet and diminished pedal pulses bilaterally. After spending thousands of dollars on medications and trying various non-invasive treatments without relief, Chase experienced significant pain relief and a decrease in the cyanosis of his toes after 6 weeks of daily D’OXYVA applications and shared that he saved money by using D’OXYVA and beginning to wean off of other medications. 

#1 Check Your Feet Carefully Every Day for Diabetes Induced Changes
Diabetic patients must check their feet carefully every day to look for suspicious areas of skin breakdown, color changes, callus formation and skin infections. Areas that are especially vulnerable to skin breakdown include the big toe, the heel and the areas between the toes. Diabetics are extremely vulnerable to damage to the microcirculation (smallest blood vessels) of the feet. The application of transdermal vasodilators such as D’OXYVA can increase peripheral oxygenation to avoid further nerve damage and other diabetes induced changes while improving wound healing and avoiding amputations.
#2 Wear Properly Fitting Shoes
Shoes that are too tight can impair circulation. Care should be taken to ensure a proper fit so that circulation is adequate and there is no inordinate friction or rubbing.
#3 Keep Your Feet Dry, Especially in the Winter
Excessive moisture caused by sweating of the feet can lead to increased bacteria growth, which can cause infections. Socks should be changed regularly in the winter especially, if they become wet.
#4 Use Moisturizer on Your Feet After Bathing
The nerve damage and vascular changes to the feet caused by diabetes lead to dysfunction of the moisturizing glands and result in increased dryness, which can cause further skin breakdown. Applying a moisturizer to the feet (but not between the toes) after bathing can restore lost moisture and reduce dryness.

HOW D’OXYVA CAN HELP?

D’OXYVA is the only fully noninvasive, completely painless over-the-skin microcirculatory and nerve stimulant solution that has been validated to significantly improve microcirculation.

The improvement of microcirculation, i.e., blood flow to the smallest blood vessels, benefits one’s health, immune system and overall sense of well-being in a variety of ways.

A Shocking Simple Solution to Improve the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

D'OXYVA | Cardiovascular, Diabetes Care, Pain Reliever in CA.

The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can affect both self-esteem and skin health. Many treatments exist to help eliminate facial lines and wrinkles and to improve overall facial aesthetics. The following is a case involving Aretha, who was a 72-year-old female patient with severe, deep lines, loose skin, and wrinkles on her face.

Aretha worked as a realtor before retiring, and she enjoyed playing golf and going to the beach.

As a teenager and young adult, Aretha often spent hours tanning in the sun.

She also frequented tanning salons in her hometown.

Aretha expressed a desire to have a more youthful appearance of her face and neck.

Her past medical history was significant for type 2 diabetes mellitus, which was well controlled on oral medications, as well as well-controlled high blood pressure.

She also had a history of smoking one pack of cigarettes per day since she was 15.

Aretha presented with very lax skin on her face and neck.

She also had deep creases around her mouth and nose with excess fat and skin under her chin.

After a 2-week twice a day D’OXYVA[1] application for 5 days a week, a 2-week application once a day for 5 days a week, and a final 2-week application once a day for 3 days a week, Aretha had the following results:

  • Tightening of her loose and sagging facial skin
  • Reduction of drooping cheeks around her jawline
  • Decreased drooping of the corners of her mouth
  • Reduction of creases between her cheeks and lips
  • Reduction of fine lines around her eyes and lips
Structure of the Skin

The skin[2] and its structures are known as the integumentary system.

The top layer of the skin is called the epidermis, and it is composed of keratinized squamous epithelial cells.

This layer has a protective function, is impervious to water and contains no blood vessels.

The next layer of the skin is called the dermis, and it contains blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles and sweat glands.

The hypodermis is the layer below the dermis, and it contains fat cells that are highly vascularized.

Microcirculation of the Skin

Microcirculation refers to the smallest blood vessels in the body.

This includes the arterioles, the venules and the capillaries.

The skin’s microcirculation[3] (also known as cutaneous microcirculation) consists of 2 horizontal vascular plexuses.

The first vascular horizontal microcirculation plexus is located approximately 1 to 1.5 mm below the skin’s surface.

The second vascular horizontal microcirculation plexus is located at the junction of the dermis and the hypodermis.

Ascending arterioles and descending venules are paired together and connect these two plexuses.

The dermal venules remove waste products from the skin.

The dermal arterioles supply oxygen and nutrients to the skin.

Most of the skin’s microcirculation is located 1 to 2 mm under its surface.

D’OXYVA Application to Improve the Microcirculation of the Skin

D’OXYVA is a noninvasive over-the-skin deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator that delivers a vapor of pharmaceutical-grade CO2 and water to the peripheral microcirculation.

This vapor is delivered through the placement of the D’OXYVA device over the thumb for a 5-minute period.

The CO2 then travels into the microcirculation of the skin, where it causes a vasodilation that leads to increased perfusion.

This then improves oxygenation and removal of toxins from the skin, which improves both the health of the skin and its general appearance.

Conclusion

The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can affect self-esteem and skin health. D’OXYVA application can improve sagging skin and wrinkles without the risks associated with more invasive surgical treatments such as face-lifts.

Women’s blood vessels age faster than men’s: Study

D'OXYVA | Cardiovascular, Diabetes Care, Pain Reliever in CA.

New research shows for the first time that women’s blood vessels, both large and small arteries, age at a faster rate than men’s.

The findings, published Wednesday in JAMA Cardiology, challenge the long-held belief that vascular disease and cardiovascular risk in women lags behind men by up to 20 years, concluding that certain vascular changes in women actually develop earlier and progress faster in women compared to men.

“We were inspired to take a much closer look at blood pressure trajectories over the life course in women compared to men because, at the end of the day, the vast majority of cardiovascular disease processes tend to start with blood pressure elevation as a major driving risk factor,” said Dr. Susan Cheng, director of public health research at the Smidt Heart Institute at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, and senior author on the study.

The study looked at nearly 145,000 blood pressure measurements from more than 32,000 people, ranging in age from 5 to 98, over the course of four decades.

Researchers found that blood pressure started increasing in women as early as 30, and continued to rise higher than blood pressure in men throughout the women’s life span.

“Our findings suggest that all the ways by which we think about and aim to prevent or treat high blood pressure likely needs to be more tailored, for women,” Cheng said.

One of the reasons Goldberg, who was not involved in the study, cited for patients not taking their blood pressure medications is that people stop taking them if their blood pressure improves. Treating blood pressure is not like treating a pneumonia or cough, patients must continue to take blood pressure medication for them to be effective.

“We need to be more vigilant, because when high blood pressure is treated it is a way of preventing other diseases, like stroke, heart attacks and heart failure,” Goldberg said.

Dr. Manavjeet Sidhu, MD, MBA, is a chief resident physician in emergency medicine and contributor to the ABC News Medical Unit.

Why Good Blood Circulation Is Important for Overall Health

D'OXYVA | Cardiovascular, Diabetes Care, Pain Reliever in CA.

Proper blood circulation is the most important function of the human body, and it can play a very big role in one’s overall health. One of the vital components of the body, which is involved in this function, is the heart.

People often underestimate the important role of lifestyle choices on blood circulation, which can be significantly hindered by those choices. The following can negatively affect blood circulation:

  • Smoking
  • Not doing regular physical exercise
  • Leaving blood clots untreated
  • Having certain illnesses like heart diseases or diabetes

Patients suffering from poor blood circulation issues must consult Circularity Healthcare for advice and treatment.

The following are ways that blood circulation can impact a person’s health:

Benefits of good blood circulation

The following are a few benefits of good blood circulation:

  1. The body can maintain healthy oxygen and blood flow, which will allow the heart, lungs and muscles to function properly and efficiently.
  2. The body can avoid and fight diseases and sicknesses. In addition, white blood cells in the immune system can be transported around the body as needed.
  3. The organs will remain in proper working order and help remove waste from the body.

Risks of poor blood circulation

The following are a few effects of having poor blood circulation:

  1. One may feel a lack of energy, inability to concentrate and excessive tiredness.
  2. Limited oxygen flow to the brain can cause memory glitches.
  3. Women may suffer from hair loss or alopecia.
  4. Men may suffer from erectile dysfunction.
  5. Sores and cuts may take much longer to heal.
  6. Poor blood circulation may cause amputation of the affected limb.

 

How can one improve circulation?

To improve blood circulation, a person needs to make a few lifestyle changes. The following tips can help:

  1. Doing yoga involves the stretching and bending of the body to different postures for a certain duration. In the beginning, it may be little difficult, but soon with regular practice, one can achieve the desired results.
  2. Massages can be another great way of relaxing and unwinding. This can also help in bonding well with a partner.
  3. Engaging in certain cardiovascular exercises can help one maintain a healthy weight and can improve blood circulation.
  4. It is also important to keep the body well hydrated by drinking enough liquids, including water, to flush out all the toxins present in the blood.
  5. Many people are not aware that eating seafood can also improve blood circulation because of the omega-3 fatty acids it contains. A few of the healthiest choices are salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines.

People suffering from poor blood circulation always risk getting blood clots and must contact a physician or healthcare professional for proper advice on improving blood circulation.

Defects in Microcirculation and the Effect on Wound Healing: New Non-Invasive Treatments

D'OXYVA | Cardiovascular, Diabetes Care, Pain Reliever in CA.

The effects of defects in and poor functioning of the microcirculation on wound healing, especially in diabetic patients, can be devastating and life changing. As one particular example, Joseph L was a 63-year-old White male with a 24-year history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, elevated cholesterol and arthritis. Joseph had been taking insulin for the past 12 years but his blood sugar levels were still poorly controlled.

On physical exam, Joseph had several very large, oozing and foul smelling deep ulcers located on the dorsum (top) of the left foot. After 8 weeks of intensive therapy utilizing the non-invasive D’OXYVA transdermal deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator, Joseph’s ulcers healed entirely and he avoided amputation of his left foot. Read on to learn more about this new non-invasive wound treatment that helps in wound healing.

 

What is the microcirculation?

The microcirculation refers to the smallest blood vessels in the body that supply oxygen to the tissues and remove waste products. This includes the arterioles, the venules and the capillaries. When the vessels of the microcirculation become damaged, it leads to decreased blood flow with lower oxygen blood levels and resultant damage to the skin resulting in a wound or ulcer.

Risk Factors for the Creation of Chronic Wounds

Patients with the following risk factors are at greater risk for non-healing wounds or ulcers (ulcers are the most common type of chronic wounds):

  • A history of decreased blood flow to a specific area (ischemia)
  • A history of uncontrolled diabetes (which leads to poor circulation, nerve damage and breakage of the skin)
  • A history of uncontrolled hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • A history of high cholesterol and atherosclerosis (cholesterol plaques in the arteries)
  • A history of blood clots (thrombosis)

 

Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Diabetic foot ulcers are a common complication of uncontrolled diabetes mellitus.1 Chronically elevated blood sugar levels damage the microcirculation of the lower extremities, which leads to ischemia and neuropathy (damage to the nerves). Diabetic patients often lose feeling in the feet and so are not aware of friction and pressure, which leads to breaks in the skin. This subsequently leads to open wounds that often do not heal over a 30 day period. These wounds can then become infected, leading to gangrene and eventual amputation.

 

An Example of a New Non-Invasive Treatment to Enhance Wound Healing

D’OXYVA is a non-invasive transdermal deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator that delivers FDA-approved ultra-purified CO2 molecules which diffuse through the skin leading to increased skin perfusion. In studies of the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers with D’OXYVA, increased diabetic wound healing was observed with wound closure often observed within 5 weeks.

 

Conclusion

Chronic conditions like uncontrolled diabetes and hypertension can cause damage to the microcirculation, which leads to delayed wound healing. New treatment methods like D’OXYVA deliver transdermal CO2-enhanced oxygen and nutrients to wound areas through the microcirculation. This speeds up wound healing and wound closure and helps avoid devastating complications such as amputations.

HOW D’OXYVA CAN HELP?

In an ongoing multi-year, multi-country, multi-center, randomized clinical trial on patients with diabetic foot ulcers, D’OXYVA has demonstrated speeding up diabetic wound healing and ultimately wound closure to an average of 5 weeks**.

In addition, D’OXYVA eliminated pain and improved quality of life such as sleep, appetite and mood in just a week in 100% of subjects. No adverse events of any kind were reported during, and years after the studies.

Impaired microcirculation, Stress, Sun Exposure, Smoking: What Really Causes Hair Loss?

D'OXYVA | Cardiovascular, Diabetes Care, Pain Reliever in CA.

According to a study published at NCBI, disturbances in skin microcirculation is evident in the course of alopecia areata – a common hair disorder.

Last month, The Daily Beast talked to dermatologists to get to the smooth, shiny bottom of male pattern baldness, which affects tens of millions of Americans. But it’s far from the only condition that makes people lose hair by the handful.

Dr. Shani Francis, a dermatologist specializing in hair loss, has heard every theory in the book. She knows firsthand that some are true: at age nine, she lost more than three-quarters of her own hair to a harsh chemical relaxer.

“I was pretty traumatized,” she said. “Once I regained my hair, I wanted to do something to help people going through that.”

With help from Dr. Francis and other experts, we’ll bust some more baldness myths—this time about behaviors or environmental stressors that could be contributing to hair loss.

Impaired Microcirculation
A published study results show that some patients with hair loss disorder presented abnormal videocapillaroscopic images – a noninvasive technique that allows analysis of skin microcirculation in vivo. The videocapillaroscopic alterations observed in this group of patients may suggest disturbances in skin microcirculation in the course of alopecia areata. More studies including a larger group of patients with AA are required to determine the role of observed videocapillaroscopic alterations in alopecia areata.

 

Medication
Some medications, like cancer treatments and high blood pressure meds, list hair loss as a side effect. But Dr. Francis says that for a subset of these, the association is simply due to the way clinical trials work: any symptom reported by the patient during the trial is considered a side effect of the drug itself, whether or not the drug is responsible. And in some cases, the hair loss may be caused by the condition itself rather than the drug prescribed to treat it; surgery, major weight loss, or severe illness can trigger a type of temporary hair loss called telogen effluvium (TE).

 

Everyday stress
Extreme psychological distress can also trigger telogen effluvium. And there’s some evidence that stress can exacerbate other types of hair loss, like the autoimmune disease alopecia areata, in which hair falls out in patches. But in otherwise healthy people, day-to-day annoyances are unlikely to lead to hair loss, according to Dr. Francis.

“To get to that level of stress that causes TE, it would have to be severe, like loss of a loved one or financial difficulty,” she said. “It wouldn’t be low-level stress like traffic.”

 

Sun
Research suggests that UV radiation from the sun can damage your hair, degrading the proteins that make up the strands. But for the most part, Dr. Francis says, the damage is confined to the hair shaft, not the follicle responsible for growing new hair. That said, you’ll still want to protect your scalp from sunburn; the resulting inflammation could hurt your follicles, too.

 

Wearing a hat
Dr. Paradi Mirmirani, a hair disorders specialist, often fields questions from patients about whether covering their thinning hair with a hat or wig will worsen the problem.

Dr. Mirmirani says headgear enthusiasts have nothing to worry about, comparing hair to a flower to illustrate her point: “if you’re covering the bloom it doesn’t affect the root,” she said. “As long as the root is healthy, the hair will grow.”

 

Diet
Both Dr. Mirmirani and Dr. Francis said that low blood iron can affect hair health, especially if patients have heavy periods. There’s also some research linking insufficient levels of Vitamin D to hair loss, but its role in hair growth isn’t clear yet.

 

Smoking
A handful of studies have looked for associations between smoking and hair health, but the jury is still out. Regardless, Dr. Francis argues, it certainly isn’t helping. “Smoking tobacco drastically deteriorates the microcirculation and we see overall diminished skin health,” she said. “Anytime skin health and circulation are poor, you can expect that the hair volume will also be poor.”

 

Styling
We’ve already established that super-tight hairstyles, worn day after day, can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia. But certain products used to style textured hair, like relaxers or other chemical straighteners, can also do serious damage. Dr. Francis explained that these products break the bonds that give textured hair both its curl pattern and strength; the treated hair is weaker and much more susceptible to breakage, especially close to the scalp. Thankfully, as long as the follicles are intact, the broken hair can grow back.

Being mindful of symptoms

D'OXYVA | Cardiovascular, Diabetes Care, Pain Reliever in CA.

LEWISTOWN–Dr. Maya Lichtenstein, neurologist at Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital, said that there are a myriad of potential symptoms that could be signs of a stroke. “Any sudden changes,” said Lichtenstein, “go the E.R.”

A stroke, according to Liechtenstein, is either the result of not enough blood flow to the brain, plaque in the blood vessels or heart, each resulting in a clot, or a hemorrhagic bleed, resulting in a burst blood vessel in the brain. Classic symptoms of a stroke include numbness, tingling, weakness on one side of the body and changes in speech, but other sudden changes in in understanding language, vision, vertigo or clumsiness can also be symptomatic.

“It depends on what part of the brain is damaged,” said Lichtenstein.

Treatment options for a stroke vary, depending on the type of stroke.

“If you get seen fast enough,” said Lichtenstein, for a clot, a “clot-busting medication, a form of blood thinner” can be administered via I.V. A thrombectomy, a procedure, not an operation, said Lichtenstein, is another treatment option, similar to a cardiac catheterization. A bleeding stroke often leads to lowering the patient’s blood pressure and surgically relieving pressure on the brain. Taking aspirin can also treat a stroke.

Post-stroke, Liechtenstein said that rehabilitation is important, including physical, occupational, speech, and cognitive therapies. “Aggressive therapy can continue to improve people’s symptoms,” said Lichtenstein. “Everyone thinks they’re better if they can move their arms and legs.” Lichtenstein also encourages stroke patients to be aware of their mood and possible depression, encouraging them to accept all the help available.

To avoid a stroke, Liechtenstein said patients should see their doctors regularly for preventive care and that leading a healthy lifestyle is the key, including regular exercise to keep up the heart rate and eating a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains. Lichtenstein also encourages patients to keep control of their vascular issues, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, as well as to quit smoking, if they smoke.

8 Warning Signs of Poor Blood Circulation

D'OXYVA | Cardiovascular, Diabetes Care, Pain Reliever in CA.

Poor blood circulation is the start of numerous other ailments.

What causes poor blood circulation?

Low blood circulation is caused by different underlying conditions. The most common ones are atherosclerosis (“hardening of the arteries) and peripheral artery disease (PAD).

If you experience symptoms of blood circulation problems, consult your physician right away. Poor circulation can lead to heart attack, stroke and even death.

What are the signs of poor blood circulation?

Symptoms of poor blood circulation mostly occur in the hands, feet, arms, and legs. Here are 8 signs to look out for…

  1. Leg Pain While Walking

A common symptom of poor blood circulation is pain or cramping of your leg or hip muscles. This is felt while walking, climbing stairs or another similar physical activity. This is a condition called intermittent claudication, which is a sign of PAD.

  1. Numbness and Weakness

Your arms or legs may feel weak or numb. This can happen while you are moving, or even sitting still.

If these symptoms in your arms and legs come about suddenly and are accompanied by impaired or slurred speech and drooping facial muscles, you may have low blood circulation to your brain due to atherosclerosis.

Poor circulation in the arteries which supply blood to the brain can cause a stroke.

  1. Coldness and Swelling

If your feet, hands or lower legs feel cold all the time for no apparent reason – it is a sign of poor blood circulation.

Low blood circulation due to PAD or atherosclerosis tends to produce coldness in one foot, hand or leg more than the other. You could also notice swelling in your extremities due to poor circulation, particularly in your legs and feet.

  1. Non-healing Sores

Sores on your feet or legs that don’t seem to heal are a common sign. You may also notice that ulcers or infections in your legs and feet heal very slowly.

You may also notice that you’re losing hair on your legs and feet or that your hair is growing slower than normal. Your toenails may grow slowly as well.

  1. Changes in Skin Colour

Poor circulation can cause your skin in your arms, hands, legs and feet to change colour. You may notice that your skin looks “shiny”.

Your legs and feet may turn pale or bluish in colour, due to the poor blood and oxygen delivery to your extremities.

  1. Weak Pulse in Your Legs

Poor blood circulation due to atherosclerosis or PAD can cause your pulse to become weak in your feet or legs.

When the pulse in your limbs is weak or absent, this means that there is little or no blood circulation to these areas.

The most common method that doctors use to determine blood flow problems is to check your pulse in the leg and groin areas.

  1. Chest Pain

Chest pain or angina, and other symptoms of a heart attack are signs of poor blood circulation in the arteries to your heart.

This may be a sign of atherosclerosis in these arteries. If you have chest pain, you should see your doctor right away to prevent a potentially life-threatening medical problem.

  1. Erectile Dysfunction

If you’re a man, experiencing erectile dysfunction can be a sign of low blood circulation.

Erectile problems can indicate poor blood flow to your groin and lower extremities due to one or more blocked, clogged, or narrowed arteries.

D’OXYVA (deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator) delivers the highest possible concentration of CO2 and has been clinically studied to SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE BLOOD FLOW volume in the microcirculatory system.

In short, based on current leading neurology, immunology, microvascular, and cellular oxygenation science, D’OXYVA is leading the field by quickly targeting to:

Significantly lower the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular complications

Provide complete healing of difficult wounds together with major pain relief and improved quality of life:

  • Detoxify the skin and body
  • Improve sleep
  • Stamina and skin health
  • Reduce inflammation
  • And much more for all kinds of people

CARBON DIOXIDE AND HUMAN HEALTH

D'OXYVA | Cardiovascular, Diabetes Care, Pain Reliever in CA.

Pollutants are dangerous compounds for living beings.

Like water, CO2 is vital for life on Earth; thus, CO2 is not a pollutant or contaminant.

The specific heat of CO2 is 850 J/Kg K, which means carbon dioxide is able to absorb, store and emit heat. However, we cannot take this property into account when considering if CO2 is a pollutant because Water has a specific heat of 1,996 J/kg K, which means it is more efficient than CO2 at absorbing, emitting and storing heat. Water, like CO2, is vital for living beings.

CO2 densities have increased to more than 4000 ppmv in some geological eras, for example, during the Ordovician Period (Scotesse; 2002. Avildsen et al1998). When CO2 in the terrestrial atmosphere has reached densities this high in the past, life flourished abundantly. Consequently, we cannot consider such a high concentration of atmospheric CO2 as “pollution”.

CO2 is the basic nutrient for plants and other photosynthetic organisms. Plants form the base of every food chain. Thus, the greater the density of CO2 in a given environment, the greater will be the production of food for plants and of the animals that feed on them.

In recent times it has become fashionable to relate CO2 to global warming, but water in its liquid or gaseous phase absorbs, stores and emits heat 4 times (400%) more efficiently than CO2. If, therefore, by this property water is not considered a pollutant, CO2 then cannot be considered a pollutant either.

Carbon Dioxide cannot intoxicate because it is a non-poisonous non-toxic substance. The data for CO2 related to human health are next:

  • The density of CO2 in the atmosphere is 0.000747 Kg per cubic meter of air.

Normal CO2 Levels. The effects of an increased level of CO2 on an adult person in good health can be summarized as:

  • Normal outside levels: 350 – 600 ppmv.
  • Acceptable levels: up to 600 ppmv.
  • Stiffness and odors: 600 – 1000 ppmv.

Data provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA):

  • Standards: 1000 ppmv.
  • Stupor: 1000 – 2500 ppm.
  • Maximum allowed concentration in an 8 hour working period: 5,000 ppmv.

Extreme and Dangerous CO2 Levels:

  • Nausea and increase of the cardiac and respiratory frequencies (from oxygen deficiency): 30,000 ppmv.
  • The above plus headaches and sight impairment: 50,000 ppmv.
  • Unconsciousness and death: 100,000 ppmv (OSHA).

As you can see, Carbon Dioxide does not intoxicate — it suffocates. All of the effects listed above correspond to asphyxia, not to poisoning; however, water and sand also asphyxiate and they are not considered pollutants either. Consequently, CO2 cannot be considered a pollutant merely because it asphyxiates.

Many have tried to tag CO2 as a pollutant simply because it is a product of fossil fuel combustion. However, CO2 is also a product of respiration, fermentation and putrefaction. In any case, the CO2 released by combustion of fossil fuels had previously been taken from the atmosphere by photosynthetic organisms and converted into organic compounds to be used in their metabolic functions as structures for reproduction, etc. When those photosynthetic organisms later died, their remains were subjected to strong geological processes that convert organic matter into oil, coal and methane. (Reccommended reading: The Holocene CO2 Rise: Anthropogenic or Natural?)

Those products are the fossil fuels that we use today to power our industries and vehicles; therefore, we are only returning CO2 to the place it once occupied during the Carboniferous Period. CO2 cannot then be considered a pollutant just because it is released back into the atmosphere by combustion of organic fuels and from many other natural processes unrelated with life.
