    Well for starters DO NOT use duct tape or any other tape around oxygen. It can spontaneously combust. Never, ever use oil, vaseline, or adhesives around oxygen connections. 

    If it is not staying connected, you may need to have your supplier come in and take a look at either your concentrator, cannula style, or both. They should fit just fine without much effort and stay well connected. If it's not, it should be looked at.
