I am sorry for the problems you are having... Remove and replace the filter door on the furnace if that is the one you removed to replace the air filter... it has a door switch on it, so that if the door is not replaced properly the AC will not run
If that is not the problem you need to be in fairly robust condition, and with some test instruments to get this thing working again, there is about a 5% chance that you can fix the system yourself if it is not just a blower door switch issue.
If that turns out to be the case, it will be best to call in a well rated air conditioning service company.
If you want to tell me which direction from the nearest city you are I will find the nearest one...hopefully they get you a fast appointment considering the problems you are having with oxygen.
Let me know if you wish, we can go from there.
