Healthcare associated use of antibiotic ointment and oxygen

Question asked by johnlouismd on Jan 19, 2017

Does anyone know or can help me with clarification of the use of petroleum based antibiotics in conjuction with oxygen?  I found a proposed change to the language of an old edition 8-6.2.2.2 .." oli, grease and other flammable substances should not be used with oxygen equipement"  Has there been an official change or clarification of the use of antibiotic ointment with patients on oxygen therapy?  If so is it concentration based, either the oxygen or the petroleum product?  Thank you.
