Tents, Mist, Face
Definition : Oxygen administration tents designed to rest against the chin while remaining away from the face, providing an oxygen-enriched and humid environment for patient breathing. These tents typically consist of a small rigid plastic device that is contoured around the chin and attached to head straps for stabilization; they provide a semi-enclosed environment for respiration. Face tents are usually connected to a high-flow oxygen source and/or humidifier through wide-bore tubing. They are typically used with patients who cannot use a mask or nasal prongs, usually due to facial surgery or trauma.
