Oxygen Flow control regulators and conserving devices are pressure reducing devices designed to regulate or lower oxygen pressure from a cylinder to levels that can be safely used by the patient. A Regulator simply regulates the (free) flow from an oxygen cylinder. A Conserving Device is an entirely different kind of device that delivers a "pulse" of oxygen as the patient inhales (on demand).
The SmartDose Conserver continuously monitors breathing patterns and adjusts dosing to match activity at every single breath. Delivers a quiet, gentle dose of oxygen in an efficient and compact design.
Oxygen Regulator for CGA 870 valve. Available in DISS or Barb outlet. Available in Adult and Pediatric flow rates 0-15LPM.
Regulators & Conserving Devices
Regulators and Conserving Devices are selected based on the type of valve connection to your oxygen cylinder. Most use either a CGA870 or CGA540 valve for connecting to the cylinder. Oxygen output (to cannula) is via a BARB or DISS outlet. Barb is just like the name states - it's a barb type connector that your tubing is forced onto. The DISS type connector is a screw-on connector.
