The low oxygen concentration is used to deliver oxygen with the help of nasal cannulas. For higher concentration oxygen supply, high-flow cannulas are also available in the market. These nasal cannulas allow output somehow similar to continuous positive airway pressure systems (CPAP). Nasal cannulas are less invasive if compared to other oxygen delivery systems. In contrast to facemask, the nasal cannulas don’t interrupt regular eating and talking. These small nasal cannulas are portable in nature.
