Cylinder & Regular Diagrams

Cylinder and Regular DiagramsWright & Filippis generally uses five sizes of oxygen cylinders, the largest being stationary cylinders, commonly known as "H" & "M" cylinders. These large stationary cylinders require a cylinder stand to stabilize it and prevent accidental tipping as well as an appropriate regulator to control the flow of oxygen to the patient.

Patients needing a portable supply of oxygen use a smaller, lightweight system. The weight of these portable cylinders range from 3 to 9 pounds when filled. The three different portable cylinders that we offer are the “E”, “D” & “A” (or M-6). The “E” cylinder is the largest of the portable cylinders and is typically used with a wheeled cart and a regulator to control the oxygen flow. The “A” and “D” portable cylinders are smaller and are used with a carrying bag and a shoulder strap. The flow rate for these smaller cylinders is controlled by either a regulator or an oxygen conserving device. These smaller, portable cylinders provide more flexibility for patients due to their size and weight, but have a more limited supply of oxygen
