Venturi Mask Usage

Understanding the Venturi Mask

A Precision Oxygen Delivery System

Mask Application

Securing the Mask for Optimal Fit

The Venturi Mask is worn in the same manner as other masks, with a head strap and adjustable fasteners to ensure a snug fit.

  • Air Inlet Holes: Allow normal air to enter the mask during breathing.
  • Oxygen Port: The point of oxygen administration.
  • Multiple Venturis: Six options to control oxygen flow rates.

Configuring the Venturi Mask

Customizing Oxygen Concentration

Each Venturi on the mask corresponds to a specific flow rate, regulating the concentration of oxygen delivered to the patient. The Venturis attach to the mask and connect to the oxygen tubing.

  • Precision Oxygen Delivery: Matches prescribed flow rates for conditions like asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and COPD.
  • Flow Rate Range: From four to 35, aligning with NHS guidelines and training.

Further details on oxygen flow rates are covered in a separate video.
