Disaster Relief In a disaster scenario such as a building collapse, oxygen concentrators are limited since surrounding air can be toxic and power is unavailable.The R15 produces 100% humidified oxygen without using the surrounding air and runs without battery or electric power. The R15 provides 15 minutes of emergency oxygen while awaiting the arrival of EMS.
Military Field Care Oxygen cylinders are difficult to transport and are explosive. The R15 is a safe, practical alternative for delivering oxygen to front line military field care operations.
First Aid The R15 can be safely stored in public, accessible areas and work places, ready for any cardiac or airway emergency. It is easily activated using three simple steps: remove tape, turn lever to activate the R15 and attach mask to mouth/nose. It can be carried anywhere, especially to remote areas for easy access until the EMS can arrive. The R15’s 15 minutes of emergency 100% oxygen can be used on a person struggling to breath while you can perform uninterrupted chest compressions until the EMS arrive. Effective CPR provided by a bystander in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest can increase survival 2 or 3 times. Every second without oxygen can negatively affect survival: improve your emergency preparedness program by adding emergency oxygen with the R15.
Public Spaces Unlike compressed gas cylinders which?are potentially explosive, the R15 can be stored safely in all public areas such as airports, office buildings, schools, malls, golf courses... anywhere that people gather. Plus, the R15 can be placed on a shelf or any visible area where everyone can see it for quick access in emergencies. Oxygen cylinders must be stored in fire resistant cabinets and only people who have specific training may activate an oxygen cylinder. The R15 is the only accessible emergency oxygen with no special storage or training required. It is an essential emergency safety device to have on hand. The R15 improves emergency readiness and reduces potential liability. Effective CPR provided by a bystander in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest can increase survival 2 or 3 times. Every second without oxygen can negatively affect survival: improve your emergency preparedness program by adding emergency oxygen with the R15.
