A reservoir nasal cannula which stores oxygen during exhalation and delivers it as a bolus during inhalation has been reported to conserve oxygen delivery in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) at rest. We compared the effects upon arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) of the reservoir cannula and a standard nasal cannula in hypoxemic… CONTINUE READING
