O2 documentation

  1. When documenting oxygen delivery is it correct to say O2 is infusing? Or running @ 2 lpm via NC?

    I thought the word infusing was for IV fluids.

    Thanks

    O2 @ 2L per NC.

    Or O2 per 100% facemask.

    Or O2 per ventilator, settings as follows:

    What Ruby Vee said. You're using extra verbiage that is unnecessary. I document: O2 2L via NC
