Oxygen is the commonest drug prescribed in hospitals. The inhaled concentration is altered by the administered oxygen flow rate, the characteristics of the delivery device and the patient’s respiratory pattern. Using healthy volunteers we measured the inspired oxygen concentration achieved with different devices both at rest and when the breathing pattern of respiratory failure was simulated by binding the subjects' chests until the forced expiratory volume in 1 s was reduced by > 50% and the… Expand
