Oxygen Mask is designed to deliver oxygen therapy through the mouth or nose to the patient. The healthcare provider might prescribe oxygen therapy if the lungs cannot provide the required oxygen to the patient. In such a case, oxygen is delivered through oxygen tanks or oxygen cylinders into the tubing that passes oxygen to the mask. The patient wears the oxygen mask and gets proper oxygen gas. Oxygen masks are lightweight and secured to the face using the attached headband or earloops.
Oxygen concentration in a standard room is about 21%. An oxygen mask is suitable for 30% - 60% oxygen concentration, which is necessary for medical treatment. These masks are usually made of plastic. An oxygen mask often has the capacity to hold 100-200 ml of gas in itself and requires an oxygen flow of 5-6 l/min to avoid carbon dioxide accumulation inside the mask. These masks fix on the patient’s mouth with an elasticated headband. Simple masks like Allied Simple Medium Concentration Oxygen Mask contain holes for carbon dioxide to escape and fresh air to mix with the oxygen.
These masks have a reservoir attached to them. Both non-breather masks and partial re-breather masks come under this category. Reservoir masks are used for delivering a higher concentration of oxygen. The partial re-breather mask like the Hudson RCI Adult High Concentration Oxygen Mask provides 70 – 90 percent oxygen concentration, while a non-re-breather mask delivers 90 percent of oxygen concentration or more. Reservoir masks do not contain any openings to restrict the inflow of outside air.
Oxygen masks are to be used when the patient is going through respiratory arrest and needs enough supply of oxygen. Oxygen masks provide a constant level of oxygen and can help control carbon dioxide retention. Simple face masks are highly effective and can supply a high amount of oxygen. They are ideal to be used for hours or several days.
