Abstract

Oxygen delivery devices with a jet nebulizer function are widely used in Japan. The device, utilizing the Bernoulli principle, can provide oxygen concentrations of 24-100%. The present study demonstrated that maximal inspired oxygen concentration provided by this oxygen delivery device is theoretically 60%, as total gas flow is insufficient to meet all… (More)
