Which Human Organ Uses the Most Oxygen?

Answer

The organ that uses the most oxygen in the human body is the brain. The brain accounts for 20% of the whole oxygen in the body and 25% of total body glucose utilisation. Brain cells are tremendously sensitive to oxygen deficiency and can begin to die within five minutes after the supply of oxygen has been cut off.
