You have a 63 year old male who is complaining of dyspnea (trouble breathing). He is breathing 9 times a minute with adequate depth. His sp02 is 88%. You note intercostal retractions, wheezing, tripoding, and that the patient is extremely pale as well. (all of these signs of respiratory distress). What oxygen delivery device will you use on this patient? (BVM, NRBM or NC)

You have a 22 yr old male who is breathing 4 times a minute, and extremely shallowly. Which oxygen delivery device is indicated for use?
(BVM, NRBM, or NC)

Those signs are completely inconsistent with each other. Tell your instructor that I said his scenario sucks.
