Oxygen Cylinder - Frequently Asked Questions

How do I safely use an oxygen tank?

  • Don’t let anyone smoke or in the room if a patient is using oxygen.
  • Always keep the tank your patient is using in the stand. Lay any other tanks on their sides and secure them so they don’t roll around
  • If the valve post breaks off a tank, the pressure can release and propel the oxygen tank forward quickly.
  • Keep the tank away from all heat sources like radiators, heat ducts, stoves, fireplaces, matches, and lighters Oxygen is flammable, i.e., it can catch fire instantly and make things burn or even explode.

How do I attach the regulator to the tank?

  1. Remove the plastic wrap from the valve post on the tank. It may contain a washer.
  2. Attach the regulator to the tank by slipping the regulator over the tank’s valve post. Align the pegs on the inside of the regulator yoke with the holes in the valve post. Slide the regulator forward so the pegs go into the holes.
  3. Fasten the regulator to the tank by turning the T-handle on the regulator until it is tight. If the handle is not tight enough or the washer is not in place, the tank will leak when the valve opens.
