Oxygen Delivery Hoods
Definition : Hoods designed to deliver oxygen to a patient's respiratory system (i.e., for administration of oxygen). These hoods typically consist of a rigid plastic shell that may enclose the head of an adult or infant or an infant's entire body; they may include sensors to determine oxygen concentration, temperature, and humidity. Oxygen supply hoods are used to administer high volumes of oxygen at high concentrations; dedicated hoods are available to provide oxygen therapy to newborns, infants, and adults (frequently, the adults are simultaneously under hyperbaric chamber treatments).
