Examine safeguards to address the risk factors associated with oxygen therapy in medical imaging.
DefinitionExamination should cite
- the need for caution when performing radiographic procedures on patients receiving oxygen therapy
- safety issues when oxygen is in use (e.g., no flames or high heat sources).
- the maintenance of physician-ordered oxygen flow rate
- the tubing is connected and free of kinks
- proper positioning of the mask.
- What precautions should a radiologic technologist take in performing a radiographic procedure on a patient receiving oxygen?
- Why is it important to compare the flow meter gauge on the oxygen tank against the doctor’s order?
- Why is oxygen dangerous in a fire?

- isotopes, half lives, and radioactive decay;
- mass and charge characteristics of subatomic particles;
- families or groups;
- trends including atomic radii, electronegativity, shielding effect, and ionization energy;
- electron configurations, valence electrons, and oxidation numbers;
- chemical and physical properties; and
- historical and quantum models.
