The R15 is your safe, portable, easy to use, reliable emergency oxygen in case of airway or cardiac emergencies
With over 70 million students across the US, schools and universities have a high priority for keeping their students and staff safe. Medical emergencies in schools may occur on any day; even when the school nurse is out of the building. So, it is critical to have an accessible, safe and easy-to-use emergency oxygen device available such as the R15, for use by any student, teacher, staff member or guest.
One key benefit of the R15 is that once the mask is placed over the victim’s mouth, uninterrupted chest compression CPR can be performed until EMS arrives on site.
If someone is struggling to breathe or has collapsed due to an airway 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.)
Personal injury accident causing person to pass out
Unlike compressed gas cylinders which are potentially explosive, the R15 is the only safe alternative emergency oxygen system 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 nor training required. It is an essential emergency safety device to have on hand. The R15’s breakthrough patented technology improves emergency readiness while reducing potential liability.

Accessible & Easy To Use By Any Student, Teacher, Parent or Staff Member
Where to Place the R15
The R15 portable emergency oxygen unit for your school or university 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 that schools have identified include: cafeterias, gyms, athletic fields, main entrance lobbies, locker rooms, offices, and in heavily trafficked hallways and corridors.
