Do You Know Your Oxygen Flow?
Now you can with the Smart Nasal Cannula and exclusive Oxyview Technology! The Smart Nasal Cannula is a disposable nasal cannula with the worlds’ first “in-line” flow meter the “Oxyview”. It provides a visual aid to monitor oxygen flow through oxygen tubing and is located below the cannula nearest the patient where oxygen flow matters the most. The OxyView is more advanced and more accurate than conventional flow meters, and confirms actual continuous flow and volume of oxygen.
Currently there is no cost-effective, routine method for verifying the accuracy of oxygen delivery to the patient.
The Smart Nasal Cannula with Oxyview Technology is the Answer.
Enjoy Peace of Mind Today
Patients use the Smart Nasal Cannula to assure proper prescribed oxygen flow rate from concentrators, gas & liquid tanks. Kinks and leaks in the oxygen tubing may occur due to length of tubing and mobility of the patient and can affect the supply of oxygen.
Since Oxyview measures Oxygen at the POINT OF DELIVERY versus the POINT OF INTAKE, the Patient has PEACE OF MIND KNOWING THEIR OXYGEN FLOW.
- Low cost flow-meter
- No batteries required
- Fits all respiratory devices
- Instant verification of oxygen flow
- Gravity independent, works in any position with all liquid or gas O2 systems
- For in-patient & outpatient use
Every Person on Medical Oxygen should use the Smart Nasal Cannula. Try it Today.
Oxygen Tips: How to Avoid Oxygen Tubing Problems
Avoiding problems with the oxygen delivery means keeping a close eye on the tubing and nasal cannula while the oxygen is being used.
Change the nasal cannula 1- 2x month.
The nasal cannula should be changed every month.
Clean the nasal cannula regularly.
Gunk in the nose can block the tubes which can slow down the delivery of oxygen. The nasal cannula should be cleaned with warm soap and water then rinsed thoroughly at least once or twice a week. It should be replaced every two to four weeks.
Check often for twists, bends, crimps, and breaks in the tubing.
While oxygen tubing is designed to be strong and flexible, occasionally it can twist up and pinch off the flow of oxygen, especially if the tubing spends most of the time in a tight coil. Oxygen tubing should be visually inspected several times a day for crimps in the line or signs of damage. Damaged or pinched tubing should be replaced promptly.
Check the connections periodically.
Oxygen is normally delivered via a long plastic tube which is attached to the oxygen cylinder at one end and to the nasal cannula unit on the other end. Since movement can pull the connections apart, these connections should be tested periodically during the day to ensure that oxygen is not escaping from the seams.
Do not drape the tubing over hot surfaces.
Appliances such as space heaters, portable radiators, and wood stoves generate enough heat to melt oxygen tubing. When this happens, oxygen is no longer able to reach the patient.
Loosely coil the tubing when not in use.
The whole point of being supplied with extra long tubing is so the patient can freely walk around the house. However, when the oxygen is not in use or the patient has switched temporarily to the portable canister; all that tubing should be gathered up in a loose coil and placed in a safe location near the oxygen cylinder.
Tape the tubing to the headboard at night.
If the patient must wear oxygen at night, it helps to tape the tubing to the headboard to avoid entanglement. Be sure to provide enough slack so that the patient can turn to either side comfortably.
