A recent article promoting the importance of emergency oxygen for dental offices broke down some of the things involved in adequately providing for such situations using traditional oxygen tanks, information applicable to similar environments.
First of all it emphasized the need of having a separate portable oxygen system that is dedicated to dealing with emergencies, indicating that a standard centralized system that depends on H-size oxygen cylinders might not have the necessary reach for a patient in a waiting room or other area. Moreover, such centralized systems might not offer the positive pressure required for proper resuscitation, and that a portable cylinder, including a bag-valve-mask resuscitator or demand valve, is better. It also spoke about mobile oxygen carts to provide mobility for larger oxygen tanks. Not mentioned, but equally important, are the steps required to safely maintain traditional pressurized oxygen equipment and ensure that staff is properly trained in its use and upkeep.
OxySure has what it is convinced is a better answer, not only for medical offices but for virtually any public or private location that might face an oxygen emergency, such as someone having an asthma or heart attack. The OxySure approach avoids pressurized tanks, and all of the safety and maintenance issues involved with them. The company instead uses a patented technology that delivers medically pure oxygen instantly, on demand, from two dry and inert powders. Their system is so simple that any layperson is able to use it quickly and safely. There’s no risk of tanks ever overheating and exploding, and there’s virtually no maintenance, and no hydrostatic testing, batteries, or other complexities. It’s always ready to use, easy to move, and a breeze to operate. And the system’s small size and lightweight also makes it easy to store, meaning that multiple units can be kept on site to fit any extended use or other emergency scenarios.
