What is a CPR Mask?
A CPR mask, pocket face mask, or CPR shield is a small medical device that delivers oxygen to an individual who is unable to breathe on his own. It is most often used for individuals undergoing respiratory or cardiac arrest.
The purpose of a CPR mask is to minimize the risk of the rescuer’s exposure to bodily fluids such as vomit, blood, and saliva. A CPR mask is a portable and easy-to-use barrier device; it protects the rescuer from exposure to infection.
How Rescuers Apply a CPR Mask
In order to learn to perform CPR, rescuers usually have gone to a CPR class for training. When providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (yes; that’s what CPR stands for!), the rescuer will use the pocket face mask to create a seal around the nose and mouth. The rescuer will then breathe into the mask, and the air will enter the patient’s lungs.
When an emergency happens, every second is crucial. Be prepared to save the day by keeping a CPR mask within easy reach in your home, office, or college.
Medical Oxygen Tanks and Cylinders
A medical oxygen tank is generally a tall, cylinder-shaped device (hence the name oxygen cylinder) used to store compressed or liquid oxygen under high pressure. Oxygen tanks are to be stored in a ventilated area, placed flat on the floor. They should not be stored in an upright or leaning position.
Can You Keep an Oxygen Cylinder in a Car?
An oxygen tank should never be kept in a car unless it’s cold inside the vehicle. If your vehicle is cold enough that you can keep an oxygen tank inside for the moment, make sure to place it flat on the floor of the back seat, and secure it so that it stays in place. A medical oxygen tank should never be kept in the trunk or on the floor of any vehicle.

Oxygen Tank Sizes
Oxygen tanks are available in several different sizes, so that every patient can have one that suits his needs. Popular oxygen tank sizes include the M2, the M4, the ML6, D, JD, E, M60, and the MM size medical oxygen tanks. The smaller sized oxygen tanks can also be used as portable oxygen tanks. At AvaCare Medical, you can find many of these oxygen cylinder sizes.
Oxygen Nasal Cannula
What is a Nasal Cannula?
An oxygen nasal cannula delivers supplemental airflow to individuals who aren’t being supplied with enough oxygen by means of their natural respiratory system. The device consists of oxygen tubing which splits into two tubes at the end, so that one tube can be placed in each nostril.
Oxygen tubing is often essential for seniors and other individuals with breathing disorders or difficulty; it provides them with lifegiving respiratory assistance.
What is Oxygen Tubing?
Oxygen tubing is the flexible, strawlike tubes that the oxygen travels through until it reaches the nose or mouth. It is most often used together with the nasal cannula.
How Often to Change Oxygen Tubing & Cannula
This depends on how often you use your oxygen nasal cannula. If you use tubing for much of the day, the oxygen cannula and tubing should be changed every 2-6 months. If you use the tubing and cannula for just several hours per day, change them every 3-6 months.
