What is NPT?

June 11, 2014 by Victoria Marquard

National Pipe Thread Taper (NPT) is a U.S. standard for tapered threads used on threaded pipes and fittings. In contrast to straight threads that are found on a bolt, a taper thread will pull tight and therefore make a fluid-tightseal. The typical sizes you will see in medical oxygen filling are 1/4 and 1/2 NPT. (The 1/4 and 1/2 names do not actually refer to the NPT sizing, but instead the names come from the pipe size that was originally used in the plumbing industry.) To determine what size you need, check out the table below. NPT Outer Diameter Threads Per Inch Use in Medical Oxygen Industry 1/4 .540 18 With Pigtails 1/2 .840 14 On Manifolds

Oxygen Drug Product Label FAQ

December 30, 2013 by Victoria Marquard

What is required on an oxygen drug product label? Oxygen drug product labels are governed by 3 different agencies. The FDA because its a drug product, and the DOT and OSHA because it is considered a Hazardous Material. Each agency is a different government entity that has its own requirements. For example, the oxygen diamond and the proper shipping name (Oxygen, Compressed) appearing on the label is for the benefit of the DOT: They want to make sure that the hazardous material is properly identified during transport in the event of an accident so that first responders can react accordingly. The FDA wants the label to indicate what the drug product is (Oxygen) so patients and caregivers know what they are administering to people. So while the DOT would mandate Oxygen, Compressed, the FDA does not care that it is the proper shipping name- just that it properly conveys the identity of the drug product. To learn more about the requirements, check out the video below. Why do I need

What is OxySafe? OxySafe is a thermal fuse designed to stop the flow of gas in the event that the downstream cannula or supply tube is ignited, and will meet VA, ISO and other regulatory requirements. With OxySafe, the PVC tube is inclined to extinguish because PVC will not normally burn in airoffering healthcare providers a cost effective solution to lower the risk of serious patient injury in a dangerous oxygen fire. You can download our OxySafe brochure here. Where Do I Use OxySafe? OxySafe should be placed as close to the patient as possible AND as close to the source as possible. This means that, ideally, you would outfit a patient with 2 OxySafes. This way you can protect the patient and others by protecting the oxygen source from fire. If you only put OxySafe in the middle of the circuit (say in between two 7 foot supply tubes) you may not protect the source, and you run the risk of the fire spreading regardless of the OxySafe extinguishing the cannula tubing- as the

Shipping Papers: Do you have them and do you use the new 2013 format?

August 20, 2013 by Victoria Marquard

Pick Sheet, Oxygen Manifest, Hazmat Manifest,Shipping Papers, Daily Trip Sheet. A rose by any other name would still be considered a Hazardous Material Shipping Paper by the US Department of Transportation (DOT). (For this article, we will refer to them as Shipping Papers) Whatever you may call it, you are required to have a complete, accurate, legible paper in your vehicle whenever you are transporting a hazardous material,regardless of weight. Your Shipping Papers must be maintained within your reach when you are restrained by the seatbelt. If you keep your Shipping Papers with other information or paperwork on a clipboard, for example, the Shipping Paper must be on top. The goal is for an inspector to be able to immediately see your Shipping Paper, not to make them sift through your paperwork. When you leave the vehicle, the Shipping Papers must be left in the vehicle on the drivers seat or in the drivers side door pocket. You should never carry the shipping papers with you when
