NurseCalc o2 - Bash script and online app for Oxygen Calculations

12-02-2012 | Remy van Elst


Table of Contents


This script will help you with nursing-related oxygen calculations.
Also available as an online tool, scroll down for the link.

Usage: ./o2.sh $si $pr $to $do 
Three variables are needed, the other will be calculated. Unknown variable should be entered as 0
$si = Size of the o2 tank in liters (eg 2, 5, 10)
$pr = Pressure in o2 tank in atm (eg 120, 65, 90)
$to = Total time o2 needs to run in minutes (eg 720, 300, 1500)
$do = Dosage of o2 in ltr per minute (eg 2, 4, 10)
example: ./o2.sh 2 85 2 0 will output 85 minutes.
example: ./o2.sh 40 90 720 0 will output 5 liters per minute

Online version

Thanks to the Illumination Software Creator application builder I've made an online version. Same license, has bugs, not ready for production, regular blabla.. Use on your own risk.
