Lab Promoting O2
Card Set Information
Lab Promoting O2
The concentration of 02 delivered-21% mixes with room air
Delivers the highest concentration of o2- 100%
Not affected by clients breathing pattern cuz valve is already set for a certain amount
Delivers most accurate Fi02
Effective for delivering 02 at 2L/min
Run 02 at 8-10 L, never use with <5L/min
has a higher concentration than nasal cannula
Simple face mask
used on a patient who is in sever respiratory distress, bag must remain at 2/3 full
Delivers 75-90% o2
Which o2 mask is good for COPD
What's the primary goal of 02 therapy?
prevention or treatment of hypoxia, and hypoxemia
Which reduces myocardial effort and the bodys work of breathing
What about o2 in an emergency?
You can administer 02 in an emergency, but if it isnt an emergency you need a doctors order
Nursing intervention to promote a safe environment for receiving 02
no smoking or electrical equipment
make sure gauge is on correct setting
make sure portable tanks is secure
check nares for irritation
use water soluble lubricant only (petroleum jelly)
What the purpose of pulse ox?
It measures Sa02 which is the arterial oxygen saturation
Ratio of HGB to total HGB
Adults vs. elderly
When getting a pulse ox what's important
verify capillary refill at site using
if peripheral circulation is questionable, use an ear lobe or nasal site
Assess site q4-8 hours and change as needed
Goal of IS
to reach maximum tidal volume, how much air goes in and out with each insp/exp
Put pt in semi or high fowlers
How do you assess for CSM?
Circulation-color, pulse, temp, cap refill
Sensation-ask pt if they can feel my touch, any tingling or numbness?
Motion/movement-ask pt to move, wiggle fingers and toes

What does complete deflation of the reservoir bag during INSPIRATION with a partial re breather mask cause?
Co2 build up
Which mask delivers the highest o2 concentration?
Non rebreather mask
Which mask delivers the most precise oxygen concentration?
What's an aerosol mask?
fits loosely around the face and neck and can provide oxygen to pt. who dont tolerate masks well.
