Quick Reference: Failure to Oxygenate

  1. Increase FiO2 to 100%.
  2. Check all connections (wall, to and from
    blender, vaporizer, oxygenator, leur lock cap).
  3. Check for cracks in O2 filter.
  4. Blender will not alarm if both oxygen and air
    are nonfunctional.
  5. Connect portable tanks and remove lines from
    wall and attach to tanks.  Open and make
    sure air and oxygen pressures are within 15-20 PSI of each other.   Flow on tanks should be around 5 L/min.
