*When individuals have breathing disorders or diseases that prevent the lungs from absorbing oxygen, supplemental oxygen is essential in quality care. These instances include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, asthma, cystic fibrosis, and sleep apnea.

Using the Connector in Medical Settings

A doctor will test the amount of oxygen in a patient’s arterial blood to determine whether they require oxygen therapy. (The amount of oxygen in the blood is referred to as oxygen saturation.) Rather than requiring a blood sample, doctors often check oxygen saturation indirectly using a piece of equipment called a pulse oximeter that clips onto a patient’s finger.

A normal level of arterial blood would fall somewhere between 75 and 100 mmHg (millimeters of mercury). When a patient needs supplemental oxygen, the most common delivery method is through a nasal cannula, although in some instances intubation through the oral airway using an endotracheal tube (ET tube) is recommended. This is usually only performed after the patient has undergone immobilization.

Oxygen may be administered in a hospital setting, or it may be given to a patient by emergency medical services (EMS) as part of first aid or severe wound care procedures if a patient is showing immediate signs of lack of oxygen, such as confusion, sweating, disorientation, and discolored lips. Most individuals only need oxygen for a short period of time. Others with chronic lung conditions may need oxygen when they sleep using a CPAP machine. There are also those who require oxygen all of the time.

DISS male connectors are also available through Penn Care. DISS stands for Diameter Index Safety System, and was designed by the Compressed Gas Association specifically for medical gases at 200 PSI or less. These connections take more time to apply, but DISS hand tight connectors are popular because their threaded connection is very secure.

Other oxygen-related accessories include oxygen regulators, available in both ohmeda quick connect and chemetron quick connect styles. Regulators allow for the adjustment of oxygen flow to a patient. A type of regulator called a flowmeter provides a visual display of the oxygen going to the patient.
