Oxygen (O²) Flow Meter, Ball and Tube Type, Double

An oxygen flow meter is a relatively simple device used in medical settings to regulate the flow of oxygen from a source (such as an oxygen tank or concentrator) to a patient.

  1. Design and Components:
    • The flow meter consists of a tube through which oxygen gas passes.
    • Inside the tube, there’s an indicator (often a floating ball) that moves based on the gas flow.
    • The tube has a numbered scale to determine the flow rate.
  2. Flow Measurement:
    • As oxygen flows through the tube, it lifts the indicator.
    • When the pressure of the gas equals the pressure above the indicator, the ball stabilizes at a specific position.
    • The caregiver reads the numbered scale to determine the oxygen flow rate in liters per minute (LPM).
  3. Clinical Use:
    • Oxygen flow meters are crucial for delivering accurate prescribed oxygen levels to patients.
    • They are commonly found in operating rooms, recovery areas, critical care units, wards, and ambulances.
    • Monitoring oxygen saturation ensures timely detection of hypoxemia.

Remember, oxygen flow meters play a vital role in patient care by ensuring precise oxygen delivery!
