I am pretty new to this game and my supplier sends me any kind of cannula that I ask for but when I originally got my small tanks (fill at home) and pulse regulator they gave me a flared tip cannula. No problem with it or the regular tip so I assumed that pulse regulators all use flared tip cannulas. But when I bought a new Invacare Platinum Mobile POC it came with a 4 ft cannula with nonflared tip. That got me to wondering - should those using pulse concentrators use flared tips or does it matter? Inquiring minds want to know. One day I will get brave and ask how in the heck do you keep any nose tip in the nose at night short of super gluing it......lol
Thanks Zell. That is a complete answer. Interesting in that it was in an aviation publication. During my Air Force career I knew a lot of fighter pilots who, after having a tought night at the officer's club looked forward to dialing up the oxygen in their jets the next day....lol They said it does wonders for hangovers. I can't vouch for that.
Zellie you answered something I did not know.. I know in the past I was getting some that had quite long prongs and had to cut them, I just ordered a box of 25 that have shorter prongs and they are soft. My question is to you or anyone that knows why when you first use a new one of the soft ones which are like cooked spaghetti and you hardly notice them but after about a month they firm up to a harder material.
