Mark Mangus indicates the following: What continues to baffle me is why everyone is so stuck on "continuous" flow when there are devices that will put out pulsed oxygen at doses that far exceed those of continuous flow oxygen - especially when used under higher respiratory rate conditions of exertion and exercise. Devices like the Sequal that can deliver 192 ml with each dose at it's maximum setting is ACTUALLY equivalent to close to 9 liters of contibnu0ous flow. Yes, it IS cumbersome. But, it does the job. AND others DON'T. Now, I expect that not many folks need that 9 - L/min equivalency. But, there are several devices that go to settings of 6 which approximate 4 to 5 liters/minute. And the Sequal can easily accommodate and oxygenate with it's settings up to and well beyond 6.
The question is can anyone provide the conversion rate for pulse dose and continuous ie, between LPM and Pulse dose readings in ml???????????
