Diabetes is an illness that can cause multiple harmful side effects to a patient, leading to uneventful complications. The liver, blood stream, and pancreas are directly affected by the illness. One of the more frequent results of low blood saturation levels is the shortage of oxygen in the blood stream. Because of this, patients can experience difficulty in breathing and would require a supplementary oxygen source to regain a natural breathing rhythm.
We offer 7” tubes, connectors, and adapters that can easily be installed to any oxygen source. Whether you are using a liquid reservoir, a cylinder, or a concentrator, our cannulas can be used to deliver ample oxygen to your lungs. These 7” tubes are the perfect length that will grant increased mobility to its users. These tubes are durable and long-lasting, allowing you to use the product for months at a time. To get the most out of your tube, it’s important to keep it clean and store it away properly after use. Simple cleaning steps such as wiping the nasal prongs with alcohol or rinsing the entire tub with soapy water can prevent bacteria from growing on the device.
Depending on the environment and the frequency of usage, our adapters, connectors, and tubes can have varying shelf lives. For nasal tubes that are used daily, 2 weeks is the limit for each usage to avoid any bacteria-induced respiratory complications. For less frequent usages, the tubes can be stocked for up to 2 months at a time. Tubes usually exhibit discoloration and stiffness after long periods of usage, so pay attention to these signs of wear and tear. Regular maintenance of these tubes can help ensure that you are not only breathing properly but also receiving the right amount of prescribed oxygen for your treatment plans.
