Nonrebreather mask-rationale: a nonrebreather mask provides the highest possible oxygen concentration up to 95%. a nasal cannula doesnt deliver concentrations above 40%. a venturi mask delivers precise concentrations of 24% to 44%, regardless of the clients respiratory pattern, because the same amount of room air always enters the mask opening. a simple mask delivers 2 to 10 l/minute of oxygen in uncontrollable concentrations.client needs category: physiological integrity client needs subcategory: pharmacological and parenteral therapies cognitive level: knowledge reference: taylor, c., et al. fundamentals of nursing: the art and science of nursing care, 6th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkin
