Abstract:

The effects of high concentrations and pressures of oxygen and of static sparks upon lip, face and hair preparations were determined because of questions that frequently arise and apprehension that exists. A wide margin of safety was found for their use at or below one atmosphere of pressure. However, their use in experimental or therapeutic compressions is not deemed safe due to a marked increase in the effects of a static spark upon these compounds at two atmospheres oxygen pressure.
