Oxymizer Cannula - XCP version
The Oxymizer's unique oxygen-conserving reservoir design accumulates (saves) the continuous flow of oxygen normally wasted during exhalation. The saved oxygen is available as a bonus at the very beginning of each inhalation cycle where oxygen is taken deeper into the lungs, allowing a much greater absorption efficiency. Thus, a smaller flow rate is required over conventional cannulas saving your precious oxygen. The Oxymizer's unique design closely emulates the function of much more complicated and expensive diluter demand regulators. Tests have show pilot using the Oxymizer need only 0.750 liter/minute at 18,000 feet to obtain more than 95% of saturated oxygen in the blood. A standard cannula or facemask will require about 2 liters/min at 18,000 ft. The Oxymizer will properly oxygenate the blood using only 1/3 the oxygen needed by standard cannulas resulting in up to 66% of saved oxygen.
The Oxymizer "M" type (moustache-style) oxygen-conserving cannula (shown) is the most popular version. Also available is the Oxymizer "P" or pendant-style Oxymizer (not shown). The Oxymizer is standard issue with our XCR and XCP constant flow systems and may work with almost any adjustable constant flow regulator.
Note: The Oxymizer cannula is not compatible with any EDS system.
This version of the Oxymizer includes a female adapter that slides onto the male connector on the top of an MH3 or MH4 flowmeter.
