How do you check the oxygen level in an oxygen cylinder?
Before checking the oxygen level on an oxygen cylinder, you first need to check that the regulator is hand-tight on the oxygen cylinder's neck. Then, if the cylinder features a flowmeter you will need to reset the dial to "0". Then turn the toggle to the left and open the cylinder. If the dial shows that the level is in the red area, this means that the cylinder requires a refill. If the psi is greater than 500, there is enough oxygen for at least one patient. You should then close the oxygen cylinder and bleed out the pressure until the sound of pressure no longer can be heard.
How do you use an oxygen tank as a lifeguard?
You can effectively use an oxygen tank by taking your oxygen mask and connected tube, and fastening it to the output on the regulator on the oxygen tank. Once all attachments are connected, twist the flow handle to turn therapy to 8-15 liters per minute. 8 liters per minute is a sufficient oxygen level for therapy and resuscitation, however you may use 15 liters per minute if you have extra oxygen cylinders available at your organization.
How do you use oxygen resuscitation equipment?
The first step in oxygen resuscitation is to thoroughly check if the victim has any objects lodged in their mouth or throat, removing the obstruction if one is present. Then check to see if the victim is breathing before applying the resuscitation mask. Begin chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 beats per minute, then apply the resuscitation mask and breath into the victims mouth. Attach the oxygen mask connected to oxygen tank without pausing compressions
