I saw this while flipping a EMT magazine. Looks like you can hook a co2 line to it and use it as a diffuser. What do you think?

It shoots out a fine mist of whatever is in the syringe.

I dont see it working all that well for making a lot of micro bubbles.

I think it depends. I tried using micropipette tips as a diffuser as they have a glass fiber filter in the back to prevent aerosol transfer and I thought that it'd make fine bubbles. But at my working pressure it would only send out big globs of bubbles. I don't really think it'll work. A drop of water is easier to make than mists of bubbles.

I use these at work and don't think you'll get the results you want. I can prob send one to you if you'd like to try. Shoot me a PM.

Since it is designed to break up viscous meds to be absorbed in the sinus cavity, I'd guess it won't break up co2 much. You'd be surprised how thick some of those meds are.

Don't those use an orifice? Like a patio mister...

If that's the case, it would just make big bubbles - not mist.

I don't think this would work the same if it were under water. It is designed to be inserted in the nostril.

The white part is styrofoam. It isn't relevant as it is just a pad to shove it in the nostril.

Here is some info:

Not sure this has anything to do with it.... being in water does not change how it works. Pushing gas through it rather than liquid will prob change it some.

yeah, I think you're right. Gas isn't going to work. That's a whole different design.
