CPAP with O2 Concentrator

RE: CPAP with O2 Concentrator
I would just add oxygen via a regular oxygen bleed. I prefer not to overcomplicate things by going the method via the YouTube. If there's a reason you need a ventilator, it's going to be better overall to get the right product.

RE: CPAP with O2 Concentrator
Thanks. Maybe I should have been more clear. I use CPAP but don't use O2. I have a 5 LPM concentrator that I am trying to figure the best way to hook up to maximize the FiO2 at the mask in the event that me or my family get COVID-19 and the hospitals are overwhelmed.
