    Can you dispense oxygen from a portable small size E cylinder cart while pushing a wheelchair or an IV pole with the patient attach down the hallway?

    I see no reason why you can't. It is secured and being properly transported.

    I believe what Don is asking is ?


    Is it proper, to push a wheelchair with one hand and pull a portable ( E ) cylinder with the other hand.

    How would you interpret the code?


    What is the difference between a cart and a stand?
