Re: Oxygen Use

You will need other equipment to use your oxygen. One item is called a nasal cannula. This plastic tubing wraps over your ears, like eyeglasses, with two prongs that fit into your nostrils.

Wash the plastic tubing once or twice a week with soap and water, and rinse it very well.
Replace your cannula every 2 to 4 weeks.
If you get a cold, change the cannula when your cold is over.
You may need an oxygen mask. The mask fits over the nose and mouth. It is best for when you need higher amounts of oxygen or when your nose gets too irritated from the nasal cannula.

Replace your mask every 2 to 4 weeks.
If you get a cold, change the mask when your cold is over.
