Oxygen Cylinders (sometimes known as Oxygen Tanks) are medical equipment that provides patients with supplementary oxygen. It is beneficial to patients with respiratory problems or low blood oxygen levels. Oxygen is stored in a cylinder or tank and then delivered to the patient through an oxygen mask, nasal tubes, or an oxygen rebreather.

 

Varieties of Oxygen Cylinder

The Oxygen in the tank is either maintained in a pressurised gas cylinder or in a cryogenic storage tank as a liquid. Both contain 99.5% of pure oxygen.

 

Compressed Oxygen Gas - Oxygen is collected from the air and compressed, and filled within aluminium tanks to a pressure of 2,200 pounds per square inch (PSI). This tremendous pressure drives the oxygen out of the gas and into the oxygen delivery device when the gas is released (like the oxygen mask or nasal tubes).

 

Liquid Oxygen - Oxygen is chilled to -182.8°C in the tanks until it is liquid. The liquid is then kept in a separate tank to keep it cold. When this liquid oxygen is subjected to higher temperatures, it turns back to a gas, which instantly flows outward through the oxygen delivery device.

 

While liquid oxygen is less heavy to store, it requires particular equipment and training to operate; as a result, compressed oxygen gas is not widely used.

 

Working of an Oxygen Cylinder

An Oxygen Cylinder is a container for storing oxygen. Used in medical settings or at home, they assist in delivering supplementary Oxygen to individuals who are unable to get the required quantity on their own (these levels can be checked using a pulse oximeter).

 

A flow regulator at the top of the cylinder turns the pressured oxygen in the tank into a precise flow that can be measured in litres per minute (LPM). Continuous Flow and Pulse-Dose Flow are the two significant types of flow regulators:

 

Continuous Flow regulators enable you to select a specified LPM and have the same amount of oxygen dispensed until the tank runs out or the regulator is turned off. It's often utilised for people who need Oxygen regularly.

 

Pulse-Dose Flow regulators allow you to improve the efficiency of your Oxygen Cylinder. When the patient inhales, the device releases small bursts of Oxygen. When they exhale, Oxygen is squandered in this manner. As with the continuous flow regulator, the machine must be adjusted to the specified LPM.

 

Oxygen cylinders are also available in a variety of sizes dependent on the volume of gas contained therein, like Portable Oxygen Can, Portable Oxygen Cylinder with Masks, Oxygen Concentrator, and many others.

 

When should an Oxygen Cylinder be Used?

Only a licenced medical expert should advocate the usage of an Oxygen Cylinder. When a person requires supplementary oxygen owing to low blood oxygen levels, Oxygen Cylinder is frequently used.

 

Patients who are unable to breathe enough oxygen into their bodies on their own might benefit from oxygen treatment provided by Oxygen Cylinders and Oxygen Concentrators. Cylinders and concentrators, in particular, are designed to provide oxygen to patients in hospitals, at home, on the go, or during transfers between medical facilities.

 

How Do You go About Utilising an Oxygen Cylinder?

Only a licensed doctor's recommendations should be followed while using an Oxygen Cylinder. While certain cylinders may be used at home, they are more typically found in hospitals and other medical settings. There are a few things to keep in mind if you're using them at home:

 

1. Make sure your hands are clean before touching the cylinder, as well as that the cylinder is clean and free of any damage, as well as any oil or grease.

 

2. Connect the regulator to the top-of-the-tank valve.

 

3. Use the top valve to turn on the tank (you can use the provided cylinder wrench to do so).

 

4. Check the contents gauge to confirm that the cylinder has enough gas in it.

 

5. Using the regulator's control, adjust the oxygen flow to the required LPM and verify that oxygen is flowing.

 

6. Connect the oxygen mask or nasal tubes to the oxygen outlet.

 

7. Put on your mask or tubes and double-check that they are in good functioning order.

 

8. Place the mask over your mouth and nose, secure the band behind your head or over your ears, and make sure there are no gaps around the edges if you're wearing one.

 

9. If you're using nasal tubes, insert them upward into your nostrils and loop them over your ears. The tube adjuster may be used to tighten the tubes beneath your chin.

 

10. When not in use, switch off the oxygen tank and keep the cylinder horizontally in its container, securely fastened to prevent it from rolling about.

 

Precautionary Measures While Using Oxygen Cylinder

Always get medical advice before using an Oxygen Cylinder since too much (or too little) oxygen can do more harm than benefit. The following are some dangers:

 

1. Oxygen toxicity occurs when there is too much oxygen in the body.

 

2. A lack of oxygen causes hypoxia. The heart, brain, and other organs may be harmed as a result of this.

 

3. Cleaning the tubing on a regular basis might lead to the growth of bacteria and fungus, which can lead to severe diseases.

 

4 Oxygen is extremely flammable. As a result, oxygen cylinders should never be used in close proximity to open fires, heaters, or persons who are smoking.

 

5. When using oxygen cylinders, avoid applying aerosols (like hairspray or perfume), oil-based face lotions, or petroleum products (like Vaseline).
