Good evening, are there any side effects of using the oxygen cylinder too often?
The use of oxygen cylinders that have pure oxygen can be used in cases where the patient requires a fast oxygen intake. Ordinary oxygen cylinders are intended for conditions such as =
Severe heart problems.
Giving pure oxygen through the oxygen tube certainly needs to be careful and in accordance with the conditions and doctor's instructions.
Some of the impacts that can arise from using pure oxygen are =
respiratory tract irritation
Drying of the nasal mucosa and other airways.
Lung tissue damage.
There is a danger of burns.
The occurrence of barotrauma (trauma due to high pressure) in the airways.
Avoid using pure oxygen without doctor's advice. Provide oxygen cylinders if necessary and use oxygen cylinders properly as directed by the referring doctor. Store used cylinders properly and safely in order to avoid other hazards.
I hope this helps.
