What are nasal oxygen cannulas?
A nasal cannula consists of a flexible tube that is placed under the nose. The tube includes two prongs that go inside the nostrils.
Why are nasal cannulas used?
Nasal cannulas are typically used to treat people who have respiratory conditions such as:
- Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, or underdeveloped lungs in newborns

They can also be administered in hospitals to people who have experienced trauma or acute conditions such as heart failure.
