Nasal cannulae may also provide a port through which instruments and/or probes are passed to perform a variety of diagnostic, treatment, or surgical procedures. Dedicated nasal cannulae are available to supply breathing gases to the patient (e.g., oxygen, continuous positive air pressure) and/or for carbon dioxide sampling, for hemostatic purposes (i.e., plugging the nostrils), and/or to reach the nasal sinuses.
