What is a good oxygen level?

A normal level of oxygen is usually 95% or higher. Some people with chronic lung disease or sleep apnea can have normal levels around 90%. The “SpO2” reading on a pulse oximeter shows the percentage of oxygen in someone’s blood. If your home SpO2 reading is lower than 95%, call your health care provider.

What is the maximum oxygen flow rate that should be used for nasal cannulas?

Flow rates of 1-4 litres per minute are used with nasal cannulas, equating to a concentration of approximately 24-40% oxygen. Flow rates of up to 6 litres can be given but this will often cause nasal dryness and can be uncomfortable for patients (British Thoracic Society, 2008).

How do I know if my oxygen cylinder is full?

The Oxygen cylinder bears a label showing how many liters it contains when full. The pressure on the pressure gauge will show, usually in gross divisions from full to empty, how full the cylinder is.

How accurate is a ball type gas flowmeter?

In the ball type of flowmeter, a ball is forced up into the flowmeter by the gas entering the meter. For best accuracy, this type of flowmeter is placed on an inclined plane (Figure 14-17). The ball type of flowmeter is the most commonly used today. Its accuracy is ±5%, and it is least accurate at very low flow rates.
