02 regulators come in a variety of styles and shapes, but all do the same basic function.

However, saying that I am a big believer of using what you were trained on, treat oxygen as a drug as you can cause harm by oxygenating too much.
(you have been trained on 02 administration and advanced resuscitation yes?)

some thoughts
- does it have an easy to read display when on the tank?
- does it have high pressure connections for suction units/demand valves?
- what steps does it go up in (good ones will have more steps for finer adjustment and supply)
