Salter Style Paediatric Nasal Cannula w/ Tubing
Stock: In Stock
These Salter Style Pediatric Oxygen Cannulas come with 3 Channel Tubing which is able to maintain a constant flow of oxygen for smaller patients with many of the same benefits as the adult size tubing such as the ones.
The cannula is recommended for use with younger patients as the size of the mask is able to cover gaps around the chin and cheeks to prevent the loss of oxygen. We want your little patient to get well soon, and quickly too. This can be achieved with the correct size of the mask to make sure the infant gets all of the oxygen to help them recover. The nasal cannula features an over-the-ear design to prevent the cannula from coming off by tossing and turning. The over-the-ear design is traditional in most cannulas for convenient reasons. When the cannula is placed on, it can be worn while sleeping without falling off; thanks to this design.
For patients using oxygen therapy, the cannula can support a rate of up to 6 litres per minute - your doctor will be the one to set the indicated rate depending on the needs of the child. With a curved, non-flared tip, a comfortable design helps keep the cannula inserted for longer without irritations to the nostrils.
An included 3-channel tubing safety design keeps the flow of oxygen to the up-most rate, meaning if there is a clog or backing into the cannula, it will not prevent the flow of oxygen and always be constant. The tubing that comes with the cannula is of decent length. One thing to mention is the oxygen cannula is not made with natural rubber latex to be used with many small patients.
