With the 16SOFT Salter wasn't content to improve just the cannula's tubing and faceplate; they also redesigned the bolo to resist twisting while maximizing comfort and wearability. 16SOFT cannulas include a standard oxygen supply tubing connector end so they're easy to attach to longer tubing when necessary.

Every inch of the Salter-Style 16SOFT Nasal Oxygen Cannula is designed to bring a touch of comfort and softness to oxygen therapy. No wonder Salter's 1600 series are the cannulas most often worn by long-term oxygen patients.

USAGE: This cannula is disposable and should be discarded and replaced when it becomes soiled, discolored or the prongs become stiff. For best performance cannulas should be replaced at least once every 14 days. For complete instructions review the documentation that came with your equipment.

  • The Salter 16SOFT Nasal Cannula series have short nasal prongs...

    The Salter 16SOFT Nasal Cannula series have short nasal prongs (.375 inches) making for a very confortable experience for anyone with sensative noses that experience excessive runny nose with longer nasal prongs.

  • Doesn't stink with toxic chemical smell

    Doesn't stink with toxic chemical smells, like the ones you get at the doctor's office, or the ones sold online at Amazon, which outgas their poisonous odors for days, until you have to throw them out in despair. These are good. Recommend them.

  • You get your on time.

    First time customer purchase was for G-4 Inogen concentrator. Asked about frequency of changing nasal cannula? Was given information that was based on user comfort. Also was given information on other options. I would consider them for additional equipment that my wife is going to need.

  • Great for the nose!

    This is a great cannula for those who don't like longer prongs, or the straight prongs. This cannula with the curved short prongs works wonderful for me!

  • Great nose hose!

    This size cannula is the perfect length for my Inogen G3 as well as my small shoulder carry tank that I use at times. Plus the shape of the nose outlets give me a really nice feeling once in place. The tapering or rounded head on the tips are a big help.

  • Very uncomfortable

    The tubing was so stiff it would pull the cannula out plus where the prongs are was so thick I felt like I could not breathe. Should have ordered my usual and saved my money.

    The condensation catcher is of a good quality and not as easily to come apart unknowingly. The salter cannulas are much more comfortable. Finding it all here in the same place is a gem.

  • not a good choice

    The tubing is soft, which is what I was looking for. However, it was thin and felt like it stretched when I got caught- which happens several times a day. I noticed it seemed thinner by my face and it felt rough there. Maybe for someone not as active.. But thank you for allowing me to comment, I will try another type in a bit

  • Exactly what I was looking for

    I love these cannulas. They are soft and do not leave marks on my face like the harder ones do. Also the cannula is not so wide that it pushes on the inside of my nose. I think most adult cannulas are made for men with great big honkers!

  • 16-4 soft

    I love it because the line on your face is soft and flexable. that makes it less presure or binding on the face. I have used tons and yet end up coming back to these.

  • Salter 16SOFT Nasal Cannula....Wish the slider was tighter

    I would rate product a 5 if it wasn't for the fact that the plastic slide loosens almost immediately making me have to tighten it constantly. It is a well made product in other aspects. I do prefer the Salter over other brands and types tried.

  • cannulas

    the prongs were too short. I tried yesterday to order my usual soft cannula 4 ft and it said back order. How long before you will be having these cannulas back in stock. I ordered the 2-foot soft cannula but have never used that one. All the other cannulas were 7 foot. I can no longer use the 7 foot as I now have a portable concentrator and the 7 foot are way too long. I have been using your products for quite a while and have always been very satisfied. I will be continuing to order from you folks thanks Judy Thompson

  • Nice and soft

    The Salter cannulas are very soft and don't have that awful chemical smell some other brands have. I just find that the piece under the nose is very large and, therefore, very visible.

  • Great for wearing the Oxygenator while exercising

    I found the 165SOFT 7-foot cannula to be awkward to use while exercising, specifically on the shuttle slide. The 4-foot is just long enough to reach my exercising position; however, not so long as to get in the way.

  • Too soft

    I ordered these because I wanted a softer than a cannula then what I am provided by Apria. This cannula is exactly what I wanted but the problem is at the point that cannula joins the tube it is constantly twisting and cutting off flow of oxygen.

  • Short Life

    I really liked the 4 foot instead of the 7 foot as I am under 5 feet tall. I liked the way soft tubing felt on my face and ears. But I expected one to last at least 4 weeks and it only lasted 2 weeks until it was falling out of my nose because it had stretched out of shape.

    My 86-year old mother finds other styles of cannulas uncomfortable and irritating. Salter-style is great and these have a very soft pliable tubing that also doesn't leave dents in her face where it touches. We're very pleased!
