When an industry changing idea comes along, it isn’t long before people start to recognize its importance and wonder why it wasn’t developed earlier. Such is the case with OxySure Systems, inventors of a revolutionary way to supply oxygen for use in emergency situations, an approach that is safer, simpler to maintain, more affordable, and easier to use than conventional oxygen tanks.
OxySure’s patented system is based upon two dry, inert, proprietary powders, which, when activated, produce medically pure oxygen. There are no compressed oxygen tanks, no dials, no valves, no regulatory maintenance, no hydrostatic testing, no batteries, no required training, and none of the hazards associated with traditional oxygen provision systems. For the first time in history a lay rescuer – a bystander or loved one – can safely administer medical oxygen during those first critical minutes after an emergency occurs, improving outcomes and saving lives.
A recent video out of Colorado Springs, reported on ABC 7 in Denver and other news stations, reveals the potential hazards associated with traditional oxygen canisters (http://dtg.fm/Ctg3). The video, which quickly went viral, shows emergency responders preparing to put out a car fire caused when one car was hit by another. Suddenly the car on fire explodes, shooting debris flying into the air, damaging two police cars and a fire truck. Fortunately nobody was injured, but the cause of the explosion was determined to be oxygen canisters that were being carried in the trunk of the car. Perhaps most telling was a comment about the video left by someone identifying themselves as a former nurse, expressing their concern about all the people now on portable oxygen that do not follow safety guidelines.
OyxSure emergency oxygen systems are safe and easy to use, and are currently found in schools in over 40 states in the U.S., and are now being adopted in many other countries.
