Oxygen Therapy Delivery Devices
Oxygen delivery devices are used to provide supplemental oxygen to patients from their stationary concentrators or portable tanks. There are several types of oxygen delivery devices, including nasal cannulas, oxygen masks, and conserving device regulators. The type of oxygen delivery device used depends on the patient’s specific needs and level of oxygen requirements. One of the following devices will be prescribed by your physician after determining your specific needs.
Continuous Flow Nasal Cannula
Nasal Cannula that delivers a continuous flow of oxygen through tubing that runs from the oxygen source to a patient’s nostrils. The oxygen flow through a nasal cannula can be titrated up to as high as 6 liters per minute (lpm).
High-Flow Nasal Cannula
High-Flow Nasal Cannula that delivers a continuous flow of oxygen through tubing that runs from the oxygen source to a patient’s nostrils at a higher liter flow rate. The oxygen flow can be titrated up to as high as 15 lpm.
Simple Oxygen Mask
A Mask that delivers a continuous flow of oxygen to the nose and mouth and is typically used when high-liter flows of oxygen are required.
Oxygen Conserving Device Regulator
An OCD regulator is attached to a portable oxygen cylinder that only delivers oxygen when triggered by a patient inhale. They also have a built-in continuous flow setting. OCD regulators can provide numerous benefits for patients as they can drive tank efficiency, reduce oxygen waste, and promote mobility.
