Nasal cannula:

“A device for delivering oxygen by way of two small tubes that are inserted into the nares” (Mosby’s Dictionary, 2006, p. 1256).

 Found under interventions…

“Place the nasal prongs in the nostrils, with the openings facing the client” (Silvestri, 2008, p. 799).


Uh… the plastic thingies go where now? lol
