How it Works
Each canister provides 10 liters of Oxygen USP which will provide 5-20 minutes of oxygen therapy depending on the flow rate of the regulator. Use the chart on the canister to determine the correct regulator based on the flow rate that was prescribed by your veterinarian. INSERT the regulator into the canister and TWIST to begin flow. ATTACH the tubing and oxygen mask. When the canister is empty, remove the regulator and recycle the canister. If additional oxygen therapy is necessary, attach the regulator to a new canister.
Dispense as a source of rescue oxygen to manage respiratory distress resulting from a variety of conditions, including congestive heart failure, laryngeal paralysis, tracheal collapse syndrome, and brachycephalic syndrome.
Transport oxygen dependent patients between primary care, referral hospitals, and home. Easy to use, with no more costly equipment or complicated returns.
For triage and as a back-up for existing oxygen systems. Our portable canisters have a two year shelf life, making them perfect for quick and reliable oxygen relief in any situation.
For in clinic, I find it extremely beneficial if I have a brachycephalic patient becoming excited during a nail trim or office exam. It fits nicely in most Dr.’s lab coats and I can manage to hold a patient in one arm and apply the mask while carrying a small cat or dog down the hall or from the parking lot, who is in need of oxygen supplementation. I’m most relieved to have portable oxygen to provide to
my clients in need of transporting a patient to a Specialty or Emergency facility."
