Oxygen is an odorless and colorless gas that comprises a major component of air and is critical to animal and plant life.[1]

ME/CFS[edit | edit source]

A 1995 study found oxygen delivery to muscles in ME/CFS was impaired and that there was a 20% reduction in oxidative metabolism.[2]

ME/CFS patients have lower VO2 max scores.[citation needed]
