An oxygen administration system is a device that is used to deliver, supplement, and regulate oxygen levels within the arterial system. There is a wide variety of oxygen delivery devices available; however, patient needs, clinical assessment, and equipment performance greatly impact how and which type of device should be selected. This module will provide knowledge of the various types of oxygen administration devices available to healthcare professionals and the appropriate use of each. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator will test your ability to recognize oxygen administration equipment. Practice the steps of the procedure as often as you want until you are confident.

Each module contains:

  • an online simulation (available in Learn and Test modes)
  • descriptive text, which explains exactly how to perform that particular procedure including key terms and hyperlinks to references
  • 2D images and a 3D model of applied anatomy for that particular topic
  • a step by step video demonstration by an expert
  • a quiz
  • a personal logbook that keeps track of all the modules the learner has studied and how long
