FRISCO, TX, Aug 07, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — OxySure Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: OXYS) (“OxySure,” or the “Company”), the medical device innovator of life-saving, easy-to-use emergency oxygen solutions with its “oxygen from powder” technology is excited to announce that the Company’s flagship product, the OxySure Model 615 has achieved a new milestone regarding its successful use. The estimated number of successful saves with the use of Model 615 in medical emergencies has exceeded 2,500. OxySure’s Model 615 is a lifesaving technology and is the world’s leading emergency oxygen device for lay person use.
A ‘save’ is regarded as an incident during which Model 615 was used to assist someone in a medical emergency or other distress situation. Examples of such situations vary widely, and can include serious incidents such as cardiac arrest (in which OxySure is used post-resuscitation), as well as events such as asthma attacks, COPD exacerbations, allergy attacks, heat exhaustion, hypoxia/altitude sickness, migraine attacks, poisoning/overdose, diabetic emergencies, smoke inhalation, seizures, chest pain, fainting, dehydration, near drowning, hyperthermia, injury with trauma, and the treatment of shock. The standard of care in most medical emergencies is for first responders to provide supplemental oxygen to patients typically immediately upon arrival. OxySure’s Model 615 allows lay rescuers to begin sooner, thereby bridging the gap until professional responders arrive on the scene and can provide more advanced care.
“Saving lives and improving medical outcomes in emergencies is a passion for us, and we are delighted by the number of successful saves involving our product in a short period of time,” stated Julian Ross, CEO of OxySure. “We are constantly reminded that these positive outcomes impact lives and families in a very real way, and we look forward to continuing this trend as the installed base of our product increases.”
The Company tracks the number of saves and general usage of Model 615 through various means, including incident reporting and actual feedback from customers, and statistical tracking of repeat orders of replacement cartridges for units that have been used.
