"In an emergency, oxygen first aid can improve outcomes... Are you equipped?
The RescuEAN Pod is a unique diving rescue aid that delivers available Nitrox and O2 decompression gas mixes safely and in a constant flow to an injured diver in accordance with the standards of current best clinical practice. It can be used with both conscious and unconscious casualties, as well as those individuals who deteriorate into Cardiac Arrest and require resuscitation before the arrival of the Emergency Medical Services.
RescuEAN - Basic Set
The ‘basic set’ comprises of a RescuEAN pod, pocket mask and high concentration mask, designed for use with a casualty whether conscious, semi-conscious or unconscious.
The Pod is a rescue aid for the diver finding themselves in an emergency situation where:
- An emergency Oxygen kit is unavailable
- Is already in use
- Becomes exhausted
- There are multiple causalities
The Pod is constructed of 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel, ABS plastic, nylon and rubber - making the Pod robust and corrosion resistant. There are no lubricants used within the Pod. The ‘O’ rings within the valve assembly are those recommended for use with Medical & O2 equipment (within normal dive temperature range).
Once set up, the high Oxygen mix can be given to a non-responsive casualty via a Bag-Valve Mask (or via a pocket mask with O2 inlet if a BVM is not readily available). For responsive patients, a High Concentration Oxygen Mask (Non-rebreather Mask) can be used. The Pod’s internal valve controls the airflow between 0, 15 and ‘Purge’ (25 LPM).
The Pod quickly attaches to a standard low-pressure hose from the dive cylinder’s first stage and the higher the O2 concentration the better.
