WESTLAKE, OH | October 25, 2022 - OxyGo and Applied Home Healthcare Equipment are excited to announce that OxySafe2 has won a HME Business New Product Award in the category of Respiratory In-Home Equipment.
"The HME Business New Product Award honors outstanding product development achievements by HME manufacturers and service providers. The competition is judged by a panel of HME providers from a variety of backgrounds and category specialties (HME Business, October 2022)."
OxySafe2 is a thermal fuse designed to stop the flow of gas in the event that the downstream cannula or supply tube is ignited, and will meet VA, ISO and other regulatory requirements. With OxySafe2, 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.
This new version provides two directional protection against oxygen fires caused by patients smoking, using candles, stove-top ranges or other open flames while receiving oxygen therapy. Such fires are particularly prevalent in situations where oxygen therapy is provided in the home environment where there is limited patient supervision, though it may occur in environments like healthcare facilities and nursing homes.
OxyGo and Applied Home Healthcare Equipment produce ambulatory oxygen solutions with DME companies in mind. Both are known for their amazing customer service, sales, and marketing support. Applied has been long trusted by providers for oxygen refilling, technical and regulatory support, while OxyGo POCs have been independently rated as the industry's best year after year.
