COPD and O2 with BVM

Recommended Posts

When using a BVM on a patient with COPD, do you use 10-15 Lpm if they’re on a set amount of O2? For example, if the patient has written orders for 2 lpm of O2 through nasal cannula and you are needed to use a BVM, do you use 2 lpm on the BVM or 10-15 lpm?

Hi Laurknee13 - I've seen that you have posted a couple of basic questions that honestly should have been answered in your EMT class.  But since you are asking no - you should open the oxygen up to 15lpm for the BVM.  

Have you asked your instructor these questions?
