Emergency 999 calls to the ambulance service are prioritised into two categories.
To ensure life-threatening cases receive the quickest response the most urgent cases are classed as Immediately life threatening in these cases an emergency response vehicle will reach 75% of these calls within eight minutes.
Where onward transport is required, 95% of life-threatening calls will receive an ambulance vehicle capable of transporting the patient safely within 19 minutes of the request for transport being made.
OxySure Bridges The Gap
We all instinctively know to dial 999 in the event of a medical emergency. But what you do in those critical moments until trained medical personnel ar rive could have a signiﬁcant impact on survival and recovery. OxySure bridges the gap between the onset of a medical emergency and the arrival of the ﬁrst responders. Just like a ﬁre extinguisher, the OxySureModel 615 Emergency Oxygen System can be safely prepositioned to provide immediate access to oxygen during a medical emergency until the arrival of trained medical personnel.
Pure Oxygen from Powder
OxySure has developed a revolutionary technology one of the most remarkable innovations in emergency oxygen in more than 30 years. Scientiﬁcally validated by The University of Texas and the Southwest Research Institute, medically pure oxygen is created instantly by combining two proprietary powders with a catalyst contained inside a disposable cartridge. The powders are completely inert and stored separately until the moment of activation. As the knob is turned, all three cartridge ingredients are mixed to gether to create medically pure oxygen.
A Safer Source
Emergency oxygen isn’t available in most places where medical emergencies occur.That’s because oxygen is usually stored in compressed gas cylinders or tanks.These tanks are pressurized to as much as 2,000 psi and present a ﬁre and explosion hazard.Consequently, the risk of storing these tanks have outweighed the beneﬁts of making emergency oxygen available. But because the Model 615 doesn’t store oxygen, the risks associated with emergency oxygen are completely eliminated.
All compressed oxygen sources require scheduled maintenance to verify the integrity of the regulator, and volume of compressed gas present in each cylinder. The Model 615 doesn’t require this type of maintenance; it’s virtually maintenance free.
Why does this matter? When vital organs are starved of oxygen during a medical emergency, irreparable tissue damage can occur within 3-4 minutes.
When serious injury or sudden illness occurs, the body does not function properly and can beneﬁt from supplemental or additional oxygen.”
Oxygen is regularly administered by ﬁrst responders to those with cardiac emergencies, low levels of oxygen in the bloodstream, respiratory distress or those suffering from shock or trauma. All ﬁrst responders follow the “ABCs” of resuscitation Airway, Breathing, and Circulation to rapidly restore “normal” breathing and circulation to a victim of a medical emergency. Supplemental oxygenation can be critical in determining survival and recovery.
Oxysure 615 allows a parent, bystander, or the victim himself to administer lifesaving oxygen in the event of a medical emergency, to bridge the gap between the onset of a medical emergency and the time the first responders arrive on the scene.
