Oxygen therapy devices for spontaneously breathing patents fall into two categories, Variable Performance or Fixed Performance.
- Variable performance devices such as nasal cannulas and masks with or without a rebreathing bag, deliver uncontrolled oxygen therapy because the patient’s breathing affects the concentration of the inspired mixture.
- Fixed performance devices allow controlled (known, fixed and selectable) oxygen dosage. They create a constant proportion of air/oxygen mixture in excess of patient inspiratory flow rate and are independent of patient factors or fit to the face. With gas flow constantly in excess of patient demand and with enhances CO2 washout, rebreathing is virtually eliminated.
Reduced Risk of Patient Trauma
Elasticated earloop option on the adult mask eliminates the need for the patient’s head to be moved to fit the mask, reducing risk of further injury.
Secured Oxygen Delivery
Star Lumen Tubing maintains oxygen flow, even if the tube is kinked.
Ease and Speed of Fitting
Mask is fitted quickly and easily with the swivel connector rotated to suit the patient’s position.
Reduced Risk of Bag Occlusion
Castellations on the swivel connector ensures flow of oxygen from bag to patient is uninterrupted.
The Humidity Adaptor is connected to a humidified Single Limb Heated Wire Breathing System. Humidified air is then entrained by the Venturi barrel to deliver the fixed concentration oxygen to the patient. Use of a humidity adaptor is the most accurate method of giving fixed concentration humidified oxygen to the patient.
