does not impede eating or speaking and is easily used at home
mask that is connected to oxygen tubing, a humidifier, and a flowmeter, has vents on both side to dilute the oxygen and allowed exhaled carbon dioxide to escape. often used when increased delivery of oxygen is needed in a short amount of time
never apply the simple oxygen mask with a delivery flow rate of less than ......
5 liters per minute
mask equipped witha reservoir bag for the collection of the first part of the pateint's exhaled air. the air in the reservoir is mixed with 100% oxygen for the next inhalation
this mask permits the conservation fo oxygen
patient can inhale room air through openings if flow is briefly interupted
delivers highest concentration of oxygen via a mask to a spontaneously breathing patient. two one way valves prevent the patient from rebreathing exhaled air
malfunction of bag could use carbon dioxide build up and suffocation
allows the mask to deliver the most precise concentration of oxygen. has a large tube with an oxygen inlet, tube narrows and pressure drops causing air to be sucked in through side ports.
