In a disaster scenario such as a building collapse, oxygen concentrators are limited since surrounding air can be toxic and power is unavailable. The R15 produces 100% humidified oxygen without using the surrounding air and runs without battery or electric power. The R15 provides 15 minutes of emergency oxygen while awaiting the arrival of EMS.
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
