Quick Tips - Label Requirements

June 17, 2015 by Kristen Ci

Oxygen Labels 101 What Is Required? And By Who? 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 that is in transport (DOT) and in the workplace (OSHA). Each agency is a different government entity that has its own requirements. DOT: 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. FDA: 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. OSHA: OSHA requires

FDA requires 2 leak tests during the fill process

June 10, 2015 by Kristen Cifranic

Leak Testing Notice from the FDA: According to FDA guidance and industry standards, soap and water solutions used to leak test are not recommended and may even prove dangerous. Soap contains animal fats ( lard ) which burns easily and explosive-like in oxygen. Synthetic soap such as dish washing soap (Dawn, Joy, etc.) contain petroleum ( oil ). Some soaps contain both. These solutions leave residues on the valve that, when they come in contact with high pressure oxygen, can ignite and cause a fire. The FDA requires 2 leak tests during the fill process, one while the cylinder is filling and another on the cylinder after they have been filled. This test must be done on every cylinder, to ensure that the contents of the cylinder is not leaking out, and that the patient will receive the full contents of the cylinder. Applied recommends using a Certified Medical Grade Leak Detecting Solution.

How can you stop patient cannula fires?

June 03, 2015 by Kristen Cifranic

According to the Joint Commission NPSG.15.02.01, EPs 2 and 3 require home care organizations to provide education to the patient and family regarding causes of fire and fire prevention activities. In addition to proper education Applied recommends providing patients with a thermal shut off device, such as Applieds OxySafe, as part of regular patient set-ups in order to protect against further damage from a tubing fire. OxySafe is a thermal fuse designed to stop the flow of gas in the event that the downstream cannula or supply tubing is ignited. With OxySafe, the PVC tube is inclined to extinguish because PVC will not normally burn in air offering healthcare providers a cost effective solution to lower the risk of serious patient injury in a dangerous oxygen fire.
