In the event of a home emergency, a family member can activate the R15 and place the mask on their loved one to safely receive 100% oxygen before EMS arrive. The R15 provides emergency oxygen during an airway or cardiac emergency and can be safely stored anywhere in your home for easy access. Effective CPR provided by a bystander in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest can increase survival 2 or 3 times, and now the availability of the revolutionary R15 Portable Emergency Oxygen system can help you provide supplemental oxygen when needed.
If someone is struggling to breathe or has collapsed due to an airway or cardiac emergency, we recommend you call 911 and then use the R15 Emergency Oxygen on the victim until EMS arrive. These are some examples of the types of emergencies an R15™ should be used:
Shortness of Breath/Troubled Breathing
Fainting (from heat exhaustion or dehydration, etc.)
Carbon Monoxide or Food poisoning
Personal injury accident causing person to pass out
Blood Clots in lung
COPD Flair Up
