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.
