  1. 1-6 L/min, approximate concentration is 24%-44%
    Nasal Cannula
  2. 40%-60%, used short term and in emergency, need 5L to prevent rebreathing of exhaled air
    face mask
  3. provides concentrations of 60% to 75% with rate of 6-11L/min, a mask with a reservoir bag
    partial rebreather mask
  4. provides the highest concentration of the low-flow systems, can deliver a F102 greater than 90%, mask has one-way valve between the mask and the reservoir and two flaps over the exhalation ports, used most often with deteriorating respiratory status who might require intubation.
    non-rebreather mask
  5. delivers the most accurate oxygen concentration, has a mechanism that pulls a specific amount of room air for each liter flow of oxygen.
    venturi mask
  6. a newer technique using positive-pressure ventilation to keep alveoli open and improve gas exchange without intubation
    noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation
  7. a long term method of delivering oxygen directly into lungs
    transtracheal oxygen therapy
