Multi-purpose oxygen face mask

Multi-purpose oxygen face mask

Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1258(2), May 14

A multi-purpose oxygen face mask which functions as three different masks at once: regular, aerosol, and non-rebreather is disclosed. The mask fits over the nose and mouth area of the wearer and is secured by a head strap, a neck strap and a bendable aluminum strip over the nose area. The straps are secured by a multiple hole adjustment and securing system and those straps that come in contact with a patient's cheek and ear area are padded with a soft foam padding for increased comfort. A plurality of access ports with snap covers allows for the connection of standard hoses and attachments to configure to mask in the abovementioned manners. The ports are duplicated on either side of the mask to allow for access from the right or left side of the patient's body.
