OxyMask’s ability to maintain a concentrated flow of oxygen means that less oxygen flow is required to maintain a prescribed SpO2. To the hospital and to the ambulance this means patient safety and cost savings.
OxyMask provides a targeted, concentrated flow of oxygen directed towards the mouth and nose. This ‘virtual reservoir’ of concentrated oxygen maintains the prescribed SpO2 saturation levels while utilizing less oxygen flow. Less oxygen is needed when using OxyMask compared to traditional masks to achieve the same clinical result. Decreased work of breathing is accomplished as the OxyMask wearer has direct access to an immediate concentration of oxygen without the need to open a valve or draw from a reservoir bag. Oxygen is conserved as a specific volume of gas is not required to maintain a concentration or flush out mask dead space. By delivering only the patient’s required amount of oxygen at lower flows, total oxygen consumption is reduced.
OxyMask’s ability to target and deliver oxygen flow at the area of utilization results in better clinical results and oxygen gas savings. This can have a significant positive impact on a hospital’s oxygen budget. In addition OxyMask provides greater safety for rotary, fixed wing, and ground EMS/Fire transports. Oxygen cylinders simply last longer and need to be changed less frequently. This is another reason why OxyMask is the best mask for disaster preparedness, mass casualty and pandemic situations.
