Oxygen Supply & Delivery FAQ

How can I connect an oxygen cylinder to a device that needs high pressure (e.g. ventilator)?

Ventilator connections vary but NIST connectors are common. Most ventilators are supplied with a high pressure hose with a NIST fitting on one or both sides and the other end of the hose with a fitting suitable to match the oxygen source (e.g. Shrader quick release)
