Oxygen supply systems for ambulances
The oxygen supply systems in ambulances allow the oxygen distribution through terminal units granting, moreover, the connection to mobile sources, such as medical gases cylinders, by means of suitable pressure regulators.
They are available in configurations of one, two or three terminal units and with 2 inlets for the connection to the cylinders that can be activated separately by a selector. Different devices necessary for ventilation therapies or for general medical applications and fitted with proper quick probes can be connected to the terminal units, available in different standards.
The O2 supply systems for ambulances mainly consist of:
- a stainless steel bottom support with holes for wall fixing;
- a selector enabling the operator to switch the supply source normally consisting in a medical gas cylinder fitted with pressure regulator;
- a copper pipe, bent and welded with cadmium free silver alloy. The copper pipe is a Class II A medical device, CE marked according to 93/42/EEC Directive and following amendments and conforming to the specifications of the UNI EN 13348 standards;
- one or more oxygen terminal units. These terminal units are designed and manufactured according to the different standards and they are safe and simple to use for the operator. The terminal units are Class II B medical devices, CE marked according to 93/42/EEC Directive and following amendments and conforming to the specifications of the referenced standards;
- a gauge for the control of the line pressure, to grant the correct performance of the system and the oxygen supply continuity;
- two nipples with gas-specific threads to univocally connect the supply by means of low pressure hose assemblies properly banded and conforming to the specifications of UNI EN ISO 5359 standards (optional);
- a painted stainless steel cover panel with mounting fittings (optional).
