Day Care  

The R15 is your safe, portable, easy to use, reliable emergency oxygen in case of airway or cardiac emergencies 

Almost one-quarter (23.4 percent) of children under the age of five are in some form of organized child care arrangement, which includes day care centers, nurseries, and preschools. 

These centers have a high priority for keeping their children safe.  Medical emergencies in daycare centers occur suddenly, so it is critical to have accessible emergency oxygen available for use by any child, teacher, other staff member or guest. 

One key benefit of the R15 is that once its activated, you may administer uninterrupted chest compression CPR until EMS arrives on site.  

Unlike compressed gas cylinders which are potentially explosive, the R15 is the only safe alternative emergency oxygen for schools. 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’s breakthrough patented technology improves emergency readiness and reduces potential liability. Every second without oxygen can negatively affect survival: improve your emergency preparedness program by adding emergency oxygen with the R15. 

Where to Place the R15 in your Daycare facility 

The R15 portable emergency oxygen unit for your facility 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 with 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 someone’s survival.  

Key locations that daycare centers’ have identified include: main activity rooms, main entrance lobbies, gyms or play areas, staff offices and in heavily trafficked hall ways and corridors.
