The minimum recommended O2 flows for a certain FiO2 should be used with the standard air-O2 ratios. 5 and are very useful in patients in respiratory distress, as delivered FiO2 is not dependent on the patient’s inspiratory demand. As FiO2 increases, the total gas flow decreases due to reduction in air entrainment. Mask ventilation technique is minimally invasive and is used for assisted or controlled ventilation during resuscitation, for preoxygenation with spontaneous ventilation; during sedation with inadequate spontaneous ventilation, as a transitional airway technique after induction; and before intubation or after extubation, for general anesthesia by mask, and in case of failed endotracheal intubation.

It is minimally stimulating and can be performed even on an awake patient and does not require neuromuscular blockers. High-flow nasal cannulas Characteristics of a face mask Oxygen gas flow through regular low-flow nasal cannulas is limited to 16 L/min. High gas flows through regular nasal cannulas can cause patient discomfort, frontal sinus pain, irritation, and drying of the nasal mucosa because of lack of humidification. 0. HFNCs offer independent adjustments of FiO2 and gas flow, a design feature which allows greater flexibility to match the needs of acutely ill patients.

O2 flow should be at least 5 L/min to prevent CO2 accumulation and rebreathing. 6. Partial rebreathing masks These are simple masks with a reservoir bag (600–1,000 mL). 8+ can be achieved with an oxygen flow of 6–10 L/min. Partial rebreathing occurs because the first 33 % of the exhaled volume derived from anatomic dead space fills the reservoir bag and subsequently gets inhaled 28 with the fresh gas during the next respiratory cycle. To minimize rebreathing, the O2 flow should be kept at 8 L/min or more, sufficient to keep the reservoir bag 1/3 to 1/2 inflated during the entire respiratory cycle.
