This education can be provided orally, or in writing (such as in a pamphlet), or preferably both. Additionally, with the education, we at Applied recommend also outfitting patients with a thermal shut off device, such as Applieds OxySafe, to help prevent damage when there is a 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
