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.

  • Comfort

    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.

    The Salter 16Soft Cannula is the most comfortable and quietest we have used.

  • Comfortable!

    These canulas are so much more comfortable than those provided by the oxygen supply company. Give your ears a break and try these.

  • Nasal Cannula

    The nose part bothers my nose. It weighs a lot.

  • Very comfortable

    I ordered these for my son, who has delicate skin and dislikes the standard-issue medicare ones from our local supplier, which are quite stiff. The Salter 16 Soft are very soft under his nose and around his cheeks. I ordered a case of 50, so we are set for almost a year.

    Very comfortable, great price and service is fast.

  • 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.

  • Nasal Cannula purchase

    Order acknowledged quickly, shipped quickly, well-packaged and correct. I prefer the soft-tubing cannulas, as they're easier on my nose/face and behind my ears. I will purchase again as needed.

  • Best nasal cannula I've found

    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.

    Direct Home Medical had what I needed and at competitive pricing. Received much sooner than expected.

  • 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.

  • tubing

    I have to change them once a week as the nose tub that goes over my ears, gets small and thin, it may be my skin that causes this.

  • Favorite Cannulas

    I really like the Salter Style 16Soft Nasal Cannula. On some of the past cannulas I have ordered the things that go in your nose were too long. These are the perfect length.

  • So Soft

    I have used Salter nasal cannula for years, this is the first time I have used a soft one. I saw the soft style and decided to try them as I have been rubbed raw around ear and nose. These new ones are very nice, I dont even need the cushions,

  • Flimsy tubing

    I find that the split tubing is quite thin and flimsy. It does not seem to hold the nasal prongs in place well.
