With currently over 1,000 casinos, the United States has the largest number of casinos in the world. Forty (40) states now have some form of casino gambling and millions of people visit casinos each year. Casinos place a high priority on their guest’s safety and were among the first organizations to adopt AED use (automated external defibrillators). The R15 is an ideal companion product to the casino’s current safety items, including AED’s, that are available for members & guests to access in case of a medical emergency.
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
Unlike compressed gas cylinders which are potentially explosive, the R15 is the only safe alternative emergency oxygen for casinos. 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.
Where to put the R15
The R15 portable emergency oxygen unit for your casino is safe to place anywhere. Since the placement of the AED (automated external defibrillator) is a familiar emergency response location, it is both logical and convenient to place the R15 alongside the AED. To determine additional locations for the R15, an excellent model is in airports where their goal is to have access to AED’s and other safety equipment within 1 – 3 minutes. Every second without oxygen can negatively affect survival: improve your emergency preparedness program by adding emergency oxygen with the R15.
Key locations to place the R15: next to security stations, near elevators, dining rooms/bars, main reception areas, gambling floors, near lavatories, in secured or restricted access areas, on walls in main corridors and on shipping docks.
