O2 Safety

O2 cylinders are Green & stamped "For medical use"

Filled to 2000 PSI... can be a deadly missile

O2 aids combustion - No smoking or sparks

DO NOT HANDLE BY NECK ALONE

Hold with at least one arm around bottle

DO NOT STAND IT ON ITS BASE

Lay it down in a secure position, and keep in its bag

slide2

Main Components

Regulator Screw

Main Valve

Flow Rate Indicator

Regulator

wrench

Flow Rate Knob

Regulator index pins align with holes in O2 Cylinder neck

O2 Cylinder

slide3

O2 Set-up - Step 1

Inspect seal for dirt/debris

Do not cover w/ adhesive tape, petroleum jelly, etc.

Face opening away from yourself/bystanders

With wrench, "Crack" cylinder to clear away dirt/debris

slide4

O2 Set-up - Step 2

  • Place Regulator over neck
    • Make sure O-Ring is in place (carry spare)
    • Align Pins of regulator with holes in cylinder neck
  • Tighten Regulator screw (finger tight)
    • Should see no space between regulator and collar wall
slide5

O2 Set-up - Step 3

Make sure flow rate knob reads “0”

Open cylinder and read pressure (PSI) (righty-tighty, lefty loosey)

Full is 2000; 500-1000 too low to keep in service

slide6

O2 Set-up - Step 4

  • Attach O2 delivery device tubing
  • Delivery Device flow rates
    • - Non-Rebreather Mask & BVM - 10-15 L/min.
    • - Nasal Cannula - 1-6 L/min. ( >6 L/min causes nasal irritation)
slide7

O2 Set-up - Step 5

  • Non- Rebreather Mask
  • Hold thumb over valve in Non-Rebreather Mask
  • Turn on O2 and watch for bag to inflate
  • Apply mask to patient
  • Bag should not deflate completely when patient inhales
slide8

O2 Delivery Time

Sizes: D (350L), Super D (500L), and

M (3,000L)

Duration of Flow (gauge pressure – safe residual pressure) x cylinder constant/flow rate

safe residual = 200,

cylinder constant = .16 for D and 1.56 for M

=> 20 minutes for D at 15 L/min, 3.1hr for M
