Am I the ONLY nurse who is afraid of the oxygen tanks? I know it sounds silly, but I cringe and jump back every time I have to get a new one and open it. Isn't that weird?

Torpedo 1! LOL
But really now, the O2 tanks do resemble an article of war: color green, metal clamps on one end to hold the explossive gasses inside. Only time I heard of one being dangerous is during an MRI...someone was mortally wounded when the O2 tank thrust upon them when the MRI maschine was pushed on. Someone forgot to leave the O2 tank on the outside of the MRI scanner area, away from the patient.
