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.

  • Softness

    This is a great company. I highly recommend them for nasal canulas, replacement humidifier bottles for concentrator, and oxygen tubing.

  • Nasal Prongs Too Far Apart

    I have had few problems with the 4’ Salter cannulas, but the prongs on the 7’ cannulas were spaced too far apart for me. After speaking with customer service, I discovered another 7’ cannula with soft tubing that fits well. Thanks to the customer service team!

  • A Little Extra

    I love Salter Labs soft cannulas, but sometimes like the 7 foot one because it gives a bit more flexibility if working outside using a bottle.

  • Did not fit well

    I usually order the Westmed cannulas,but got these instead to try them out. They did not fit me at all..kept falling out of my nose, so I re ordered my normal ones. No fault of Salter at all.

    I started using these when I bought Inogen products. Inogen no longer provides them so I had to find another source. I found DirectHome Medical. Completely happy with the shipping time and availability.

    My mandated health insurance company rarely supplies me with this cannula which I like so much. I have received one in many, many years. Now that I know the order number I will be buying more from your company. Your service was reasonably fast and the packing material was adequate.

  • Not As Expected

    First; the smell was terrible. Second; the cannula was too short. Reason for trying was because of slipping tubing around neck. Had difficulty keeping the nose piece in place so could not use properly. Will give these away and order something else.

  • Great price and very quick delivery!

    My items came sooner then quoted and as described. The price was very reasonable. I purchased these because my oxygen supplier only sends me a couple at a time and you'd think I was asking for gold. So I decided to pay out of pocket and found this company who is very reasonable and they are salter 7' cannulas the same as I get from my oxygen supplier. Thank you it was great doing business with you and I will send more orders your way!

  • Twisted Tubing

    The tubing itself was twisted were in causing a slight opening in the tubing to allow for air flow to my nostril. I've tried numerous times to shape the area were it is twisted but it doesn't help. It appears that this brand has been in your stock for quiet sometime.

    The product has a life span of only two to three weeks before it turns brittle and unmanageable coming off frequently at night. It's advantage is it is much more comfortable when plyable leaving no unsightly marks on the face in the morning.

  • Bolo

    I ordered these because the bolo on previous ones used stayed up. This first one I used from the batch ordered is not holding its shape and the tubing from the bolo to the solid single tube twists so much, I am constantly taking off and untwisting. Hope this one is a dud from the others I ordered.

    The nose piece on this cannula is a great length. The others are much too long for me. The part that goes over the ear is soft and does not irritate. Last is the great price.

  • Finally

    I have been buying the Salter Style 16 soft because they were comfortable however the Bolo was annoying because it would not stay in place and kept sliding down. I saw on your site that the bolo had been re-designed and it now works as it should. I'm happy.

  • The best for sleeping

    I have been using these for over 3 years now. When I had the ones supplied by my insurance-paid for oxygen supplier & accessories company, I found I kept ripping the cannula off in the night. I needed something softer that didn't hurt behind the ears. I searched online and found Direct Home Medical. I love how pliable and soft these are. They are gentle on the nose and ears and on the cheeks too. Now I can stay on oxygen all night without disruption.

  • Salter Lab cannula

    The 16SOFT-(whatever length) is the most comfortable, non irritating cannula you can buy. The nose pieces are molded in the perfect direction and not so long that they might touch your brain.
