How can you stop patient cannula fires?

Jun 03, 2015

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 Applied's 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.
