The Salter Labs Salter-Style Oxygen Micro Low Flow Cannula offers thinner, 3-channel tubing designed for patients who require low oxygen flows up to 3 liters per minute (LPM). The 7-foot tubing connects to soft, curved prongs with a non-flared tip to comfortably rest in the nostrils. The Salter-Style Micro Flow 7-Foot Tubing (Salter Labs 1616-7-50) wraps around ears to remove tubing out of sight and keep it secure.
Having a comfortable Oxygen Cannula is important but it also needs to accommodate the flow rate prescribed by the physician in order to effectively deliver the supplemental oxygen. Salter Labs also manufactures High Flow cannulas when patient requires up to 15 LPM.

I'm in the same position; I also would like to know if you make the soft cannula in latex-free, as so far my neck breaks-out in a rash.
I have ordered a childs size from insurance co., but so far they don't have latex free, so since your there manufacture; do you make a soft-7 cannula latex free? K.

B) the minimum thickness of the central Cartilage between the nostrils
C) the thickness of the thickness of the fleshy outer side of the nostrils
Then call customer service or user support & ask your question.Answer by: Dr. Mabuse on Mar 29, 2018 2:27:27 AMThis micro "petite" is the equivalent of a pediatric cannula. (I was told by my oxygen equipment provider that there could be an issue of "incorrect use" if I continued to use pediatric cannulas, in terms of insurance coverage/liability if I had a problem related to the equipment in terms of receiving enough oxygen.) Whether that is true or not, I then discovered these "micro" petite cannulas and they fit my needs very well. The large generic ones are way too big, they do not even fit correctly. I think you would be liking these. And clearly says "adults" and when I compared these and pediatric side by side I could not see much difference. Just my personal experience, not a scientifically measured analysis.Answer by: Nette on Sep 25, 2018 11:03:00 AM
Based on your history
I am glad to have found something suitable made for adult patients.
It's only good up to 3LPM though.
