Airlife Y-connectors can also be used when splitting oxygen between two patients. Keep in mind, splitting oxygen between two patients will reduce the LPM flow to the patient by half.
What this means is, if two patients were at a setting of two, then the machine should be set to a minimum of 4 LPM.This Y-Connector features two hinged ports with airtight lids. The pressure sensor port allows for the connection of CPAP pressure line that will regulate pressure in the system. The Thermometer port is for temperature regulation.Basically, with Airlife Y-Connectors you can use a variety of respiratory products, but always consult your doctor when determining the Respiratory Treatment that you require.
