Cannula should be cleaned frequently and replace with new cannula every 1 month so infections wont catch.
Clean the part (prongs) that inserts into your nose, as well as tube that connects, with an alcohol swab once in a day. If you are on oxygen 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it might be easier for you to have an extra cannulas (or at least two ) one to use while the other is being wiped down and allowed to dry.
Alternate the cannulas for two weeks only, then discard them and use new ones.
