Venturi mask

The venturi mask is a medical device to deliver a known oxygen concentration to patients on controlled oxygen therapy. The colour of the device reflects the delivered oxygen concentration: 24%: blue; 28%: white; 31%: orange; 35%: yellow; 40%: red; 60%: green.


The mechanism of action depends on the venturi effect.
