OxySure (OXYS) and Estill Medical Technologies Launch Ebola Intervention Kit
FRISCO, Texas, November 4, 2014, (MarketWired) – OxySure Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: OXYS) the medical device innovator of life-saving easy-to-use emergency oxygen solutions with its FDA-cleared “oxygen from powder” technology, along with Estill Medical Technologies, the creator of the FDA-cleared “Thermal Angel Blood and IV Fluid Infusion Warmer”, today announced the launch of an Ebola Intervention Kit.
OxySure’s “Ebola Intervention Kit” is designed to provide caregivers two critical tools for the early treatment of Ebola patients or for anyone showing possible Ebola symptoms. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), when someone is suspected of showing Ebola symptoms “the following basic interventions, when used early, can significantly improve the chances of survival:
• Providing intravenous (IV) fluids and balancing electrolytes (body salts)
• Maintaining oxygen status and blood pressure
• Treating other infections if they occur”
The “Ebola Intervention Kit” (Product reference number TA-OXYS-EIK) consists of the Thermal Angel Blood and IV Fluid Warmer and the OxySure 615 Portable Emergency Oxygen System. The companies are also in discussions with other suppliers to posssibly expand the kit in a modular way.
For caregivers who wish to warm the IV fluids given to their patients, the “Ebola Intervention Kit” includes the U.S. Military’s Thermal Angel Ultra Operations Module, which provides a disposable Thermal Angel, an Ultra Battery 1, and all of the charging options for field use. The Thermal Angel allows the caregiver to warm the IV fluids given to the patient, in order to help prevent fluid-induced hypothermia into an already stressed patient.
For caregivers who wish to provide emergency oxygen to their patients, the “Ebola Intervention Kit” includes the OxySure 615 Portable Oxygen System, which creates oxygen from powder, requiring no oxygen tanks or power and can be used in remote, undeveloped or rural situations.
By combining the Thermal Angel fluid warmer and the OxySure emergency oxygen solution, caregivers now have access to a kit that requires no AC power and is portable, includes disposables that can be discarded, and is easy to use with simple instructions.
In a joint statement, Julian Ross, CEO and Jay Lopez, President stated: “With the Ebola issue, we are very aware of the challenges that caregivers face in supporting their patients. We believe that our new Ebola Intervention Kit will be especially beneficial to those caregivers who are challenged with supporting patients in areas that lack power, or need to have the ability to easily dispose of products that are used to treat Ebola patients. We have seen great success in supporting the U.S. Military with our Thermal Angel Blood and IV Fluid Warmer, so this is another example of the military leading the way to changes in civilian medicine.”
