    Scientists Invent Oxygen Particle That If Injected, Allows You To Live Without Breathing | TechWench.com

    From the article...

    Potential Future Uses

    "Medical: There is the obvious medical uses where the microparticles can be used to save off death from a restriction in breathing due to inflammation of the lungs, collapsed lungs, and the like. It would be good to have these injections ready in hospitals and ambulances for when the time is needed.

    Military: Can you imagine a navy seals capability when they wouldn’t need to surface for air and could stay underwater for over 20 minutes? If a boat was to begin to sink, you could shoot yourself as the boat is going down to ensure you aren’t drowned in the under current of the sinking vessel. How about for toxic gases when a facemask is unavailable. The military could have a number of uses for such a medical advancement.

    Private Sector: Really this can be used as a precaution for anything nautical where the potential to drown is a real danger. Deep sea rescue crews could inject themselves prior to making a rescue, underwater welders can use it in case they become stuck or air is lost to their suits. The potential use for anything water related seems extremely worthwhile."

    More on O2 particle injection

    The interesting thing is that most of the uses listed don't take into account hypercapnia - regardless of how oxygenated your blood is it's the buildup of CO2 that prompts the breathing response. No doubt the writer doesn't have a proper understanding of how we breathe.
