Manufacturer: Puritan Compressed Gas Corp., 1240 W. Jackson Blvd., Chicago 7.
This portable assembly consists of a safety pressure-reducing regulator equipped with a flow gage calibrated in liters per minute; a humidifying assembly, which is to be attached to the back of the regulator by a removable clamp; two bottles fitted with two-hole stoppers and four metal tubes, one having a gas spray attachment; and three pieces of pure gum tubing. Also included in this unit is a cylinder base designed to prevent possible tipping when placed on the bottom of either D or E size cylinders. A wrench is enclosed for operating the cylinder valve. If it is desired to use a nasal catheter for administration of oxygen, the catheter may be attached to the pure gum tubing in place of the face cone.
