Oxygen delivery to patients in the hospital suffer from technology that has not changed for nearly 60 years. Present protocols shackle the respiratory therapist with inefficiencies and the patients with unsafe treatments and often very uncomfortable oxygen devices. We are gathering signatures to deliver to both houses of Congress, The White House, the FDA, Health & Human Services and The Joint Commission to garner support for change in hospital practices. This picture represents just one of many unsafe practices that occur because of the limitations of present oxygen mask technology. See www.safeO2champion.com for other examples of outdated technology in use today.
