Oxygen drug product labels are governed by 3 different agencies. The FDA because it's 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.

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.
In addition to proper education Applied recommends providing patients with a thermal shut off device, such as Applied's OxySafeÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¾ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢, as part of regular patient set-ups in order to protect against further damage from a tubing fire.
