    Transcript

    00:00 So let's wrap up this video. FiO₂ is the fraction of inspired oxygen. Room air FiO₂ is 21%, so take a big O deep breath of that 21%. Now the flow of oxygen is controlled by a flow meter that's inserted directly into a wall unit or attached to a portable oxygen tank. Now if the patient is going to be on oxygen for a long time or a really high flow, don't forget to consider humidifying the oxygen if it's not comfortable for your patient. Thank you for watching our video today.
