Tents, Oxygen

Definition : Tents designed to provide an oxygen-enriched and humid environment for patient breathing. These tents typically consist of a pliable plastic sheet held by a plastic or metallic frame that is suspended as a canopy above the bed; some tents cover only the head and part of the torso. Oxygen administration tents are usually connected to an oxygen source and/or humidifier through wide-bore tubing. The use of these tents avoids the need to directly attach a nasal cannula, face mask, or endotracheal tube to the patient. These tents are especially useful to facilitate the treatment of breathing and other cardiopulmonary disorders that limit the body's supply of oxygen by providing a higher concentration of oxygen than is normally present in the air. Small dedicated tents designed to be attached to the patient's chin and strapped around the neck (face tents) are also available.
