DeVilbiss Stationary oxygen concentrator: During the last nine months with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the demand for oxygen concentrators in hospitals has hit an all time high. The costs of using an oxygen concentrator per single patient is also high putting pressure on budgets in each ward. During this period Pure O2 has been working closely with hospitals and the NHS across the UK, to help keep oxygen supplies at a level to meet the increasing demand. There is a way that up to 5 patients can share the benefits of one single oxygen concentrator machine.
One DeVilbiss Stationary Unit for 5 paediatric patients…
When you think about oxygen supplies in hospitals you might initially be imagining elderly and infirm patients or those unfortunate people you have seen featured on the news during this unprecedented pandemic.Have you thought about the need for oxygen on children’s wards? Of course, if you work as a paediatric nurse you will be well aware of the demands for oxygen on paediatric wards. It is unimaginably difficult for these such nurses to only have access to a limited number of oxygen concentrators when many children are experiencing breathing difficulties. However Pure O2 can come to the rescue with our very competitively priced 5 way paediatric multi-flow meter.
What is a 5 way paediatric multi-flow meter?
A 5 way paediatric multi-flow meter is a simple but affective flow meter which can be attached to a 10lpm stationary oxygen concentrator. This effectively acts as a splitter allowing up to 5 paediatric patients to benefit from the oxygen flow from a single oxygen concentrator. Each flow meter can be linked up to a 10 meter tube to distribute the oxygen to children up and down the ward. This allows 5 paediatric patients to benefit from oxygen flow ranging from 0.125lpm to 2lpm all from one 10lpm oxygen concentrator. The DeVilbiss Stationary oxygen concentrator is an ideal unit to use with this 5 way paediatric multi flow meter.
