Figures from this paper


A new pendant storage oxygen-conserving nasal cannula.
It is concluded that the PNC provides effective oxygen delivery to patients at supply flows substantially less than the SNC, and its widespread use in patients requiring chronic oxygen therapy could bring about significant financial savings.
Absence of nasal air flow during pursed lips breathing. The soft palate mechanisms.
In 6 patients with chronic obstructive lung disease, cineradiographic studies showed during the expiratory phase of PL breathing that the soft palate rose to closely contact the posterior pharyngeal wall, completely occluding the entrance to the nasopharynx.
Pursed lips breathing training using ear oximetry.
It is concluded that patients can learn to increase their SaO2 by PLB using ear oximetry adjunctively as well as relieving dyspnea using an A-B-A crossover study design.
Evaluation of a low-flow oxygen-conserving nasal cannula.
The CNC offers a more efficient oxygen delivery system for those patients requiring supplemental oxygen administration by nasal cannula for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Evaluation of the use of an oxygen conservation device in long-term oxygen therapy.
While significant savings were achieved with the flow reducing oxygen pendant (OP), problems with patient acceptance may limit its practicality, particularly in continuous use situations.
Conservation of oxygen supply using a reservoir nasal cannula in hypoxemic patients at rest and during exercise.
In hypoxemic obstructed and restricted patients at rest and during exercise, the reservoir cannula uses less than half the oxygen of a standard cannula to produce similar improvement in SaO2 and thus has advantages of a reduced cost of ambulatory therapy with low-flow oxygen and a longer time permitted away from a stationary source of oxygen.
Oxygen conservation and oxygen-conserving devices in chronic lung disease. A review.
The cost of oxygen can be substantially reduced while increasing the portability and range of home oxygen therapy and the efficiency of oxygen therapy can be improved over steady flow delivery by focusing oxygen delivery to early inspiration.
Reversal of Pulmonary Hypertension by Prolonged Oxygen Administration to Patients with Chronic Bronchitis
The present findings show that the residual, established hypertension is also reversible if oxygen therapy is continued for weeks, and it is suggested that this reversal may be brought about by regression of the muscular hyperplasia of the small pulmonary vessels consequent to longterm relief of hypoxia.
