Like a fire extinguisher or an AED, oxygen delivery is essential in those critical moments before the EMS arrive. The Rapid Oxygen R15 "oxygen in a box" solution gives bystanders a safe, easy to use and maintenance-free way to respond in a breathing emergency.
In this webinar, you will learn about how Rapid Oxygen's R15 emergency oxygen device augments emergency response to put the "P" back in CPR! We will also discuss: the basics of oxygen and its importance to the human body, the role of hemoglobin O2 saturation in anemia, hypoxemia and hypoxia, aerobic and anaerobic metabolism in ATP production, differentiating between 1st responders and Good Samaritans response times in different emergency locations, airway obstruction, and more!
