I was convinced O2 didn't work for me till I paid attention to smart people at this site like you. I threw away those nose cannule things, got the right mask, cranked it up to 8+but it still wasn't working right.
I came back here and asked "how long does it take the bag to fill?" ...a couple of seconds was the answer....SOOOO I must have a clog!
On the "out" side of the regulator (the thing with the dials) there is a fitting that the hose attaches to. Inside this fitting is an orifice that looks like it's made of tiny metal balls welded together. I soaked that in isoprpyl alcohol blew commpressed air thru it and Voila! (for those of you not french or canadian bacon) that many Holy Shit it works!
I have had to repeat that trick several times when the bag gets to fillin slow...and abort the beast sucessfully.
If I was Riccardo I'd kiss you guys.
