Approximate pressure of a full oxygen tank.
2000 psi.
At least, how much pressure does a tank need to be above the "Safe Residual Pressure"?
200 psi
Normal oxygen flow rates for Nonrebreather Mask, Nasal Cannula, Pocket Mask and Bag-Valve-Mask.
NONREBREATHER MASK - 15 lpm
NASAL CANNULA - 6 lpm
POCKET MASK - 15 lpm
BAG-VALVE-MASK - 15 lpm
*(lpm = liters per minute)
Situation in which an EMT-Basic would use a Nasal Cannula instead of a Nonrebreather Mask.
Only use a Nasal Cannula if the patient will not tolerate a Nonrebreather Mask.

Note - The Nasal Cannula will not provide as high a concentration of oxygen as the Nonrebreather Mask.
Type of Airway well tolerated by semi-conscious patients.
Nasopharyngeal Airway
Technique for determining a correct size Oral Airway.
Measure from the corner of the patient's mouth to the tip of the earlobe, or the the bottom of the angle of the jaw.
Technique for determining a correct size Nasal Airway.
Measure from the tip of the patient's nose to the tip of the earlobe.
Maximum length of time a patient should be suctioned at one time.
ADULTS - Suction for no more than 15 seconds at a time.
INFANTS AND CHILDREN - Suction for shorter periods(approximately 5 seconds at a time)
Age criteria for using a Flow Restricted, Oxygen-Powered Ventilation Device.
USE ON ADULTS ONLY!!!
Do not use on infants or children. This device delivers oxygen at a high pressure and high flow rates, it can damage an infant or child's lungs, and/or cause air to enter the stomach.
