Does anyone know if it's possible for humans to absorb (in any significant amount) oxygen directly through the skin? Either oxygen directly from the air, or a substance that is easily absorbed into the skin (a liquid compound for example)? I'm curious because insects do just that, and it's much faster than human absorbtion through lungs and transport to the body via blood.
