1 Cannula Costs & How To Reduce Them (portable O 2 & Turbo-206 O 2 ) Fred Clark, CAPT Civil Air Patrol SWR-NM-030, Sqdn II January, 2013

2 We have two oxygen systems in the Squadron: 1)the Aerox portable tanks:

3 2)and the Precise Flight built-in system in the turbo-206:

4 Aerox portable tank connector/valve and flow-meter

5 These are different from …

6 Precise Flight connector and valve/flow-meter

7 As an individual, you do not need to buy either of the valve/connector/flow-meter connections for either system.

8 Those stay with the O 2 tanks (for the Aerox system) or with the airplane (for the turbo- 206 system).

9 As an individual, you do not need to buy either of the valve/connector/flow-meter connections for either system. Those stay with the O 2 tanks (for the Aerox system) or with the airplane (for the turbo- 206 system). You only need your own cannula.

10 Cannula for Aerox portable O 2 tank

11 Cannula for Aerox portable O 2 tank Note bell-shaped connecting end

12 Cannula for Precise Flight O 2 system in Turbo-206

13 Cannula for PreciseFlight O 2 system in Turbo-206 Note plastic adaptor (comes standard with the 206 cannula and must stay with it)

14 $44.43 ($35.54 + $8.89 s&h) at http://aerox.com/product/ conserving-cannula-cc-rev- a $29.95 + s&h from Precise Flight

15 Thus, for an individual purchase, your cost could be well over $75.00, if you purchased one each of the two types of cannulas.

16 Wouldnt It Be Better to Buy One Cannula That Fits Both Systems? (There is a way.)

17 Buy a cannula that has the bell-shaped connecting end

18 Buy a plastic adaptor

19 Cut the bell-shaped connecting end off of the cannula tubing

20 Cut the bell-shaped connecting end off of the cannula tubing – but DONT throw it away!

21 Insert plastic adaptor into tubing. This cannula can then be used with the Turbo- 206 O 2 system.

22 To use the same cannula with the portable Aerox system, re-attach the bell-shaped connector-end onto the other end of the plastic adaptor.

23 Thus, a cannula plus a plastic adaptor would allow you to have one personal cannula that can be used to attach to either the Aerox portable tank or the Turbo-206 oxygen systems, interchangeably.

24 Where to Buy (prices as of December, 2013, for individual orders) Buy connector from: Precise Flight, for $6.17 ($1.00 + $5.17 s&h) at 541-382-8684; ask for Salesperson 34 (Note: same $5.17 s&h could apply to larger quantities.)

29 Thus, your cost could still be over $32.00, if you purchased on your own.

30 However...

31 Thus, your cost could still be over $32.00, if you purchased on your own. However... With volume buying (3 or more), Allegro Medical offers discounts & reduced or free shipping on purchases of $50.00 or more. Thus, we can get the per-cannula cost down to $20.00 (including cannula, adaptor, and s&h).

32 Show of hands for who wants to sign up to buy his/her own $20.00 cannula? (Note: payment must be made in advance; arrangements will be made through Squadron and/or Wing Finance)
