Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has recently joined into a distribution partnership with the LIFE® Corporation to offer their portable Emergency Oxygen Units and CPR Administration Equipment to a larger consumer marketplace.

Headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and founded in 1985, the LIFE® Corporation specialises in superior quality portable emergency oxygen and CPR equipment. All on-site industry, office and government workplace safety and first aid programs are the primary target markets for this kind of emergency equipment, as are caregivers and therapists in the home healthcare field. Actually, anywhere there may be a need for first aid to be administered by trained personnel before more official emergency help can arrive is the perfect place for these emergency oxygen units from LIFE®.

In many emergencies, experts recommend the immediate administration of oxygen to the victim by previously trained individuals, before an ambulance arrives and EMTs can take over. Taking this action can mean the difference between life and death, which is why it is so important to have emergency oxygen and CPR equipment on hand, and know how to use it correctly. The products from LIFE® are specifically designed for this purpose, and because the units are lightweight and portable, this peace of mind can be taken along wherever the potential user may roam; to school, to work, to the gym, to the grocery store or on the go.

All of the emergency oxygen equipment from LIFE® exclusively feature a capability to deliver a six litres-per-minute (LPM) flow rate along with a 12 litres-per-minute flow rate. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations require the six LPM, while the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends 100% inspired oxygen at 12 LPM. Currently, only the LIFE® Corporation offers both settings in their products. They also offer models for EMTs and more professional emergency service personnel, which feature variable flow settings to suit a wider range of emergency situations.

The innovative products from LIFE® include the LIFE® StartSystem which can hold an AED defibrillator, along with equipment for administering emergency oxygen; the LIFE® SoftPac system which weighs only six pounds and contains enough emergency oxygen to last 40 minutes at six LPM; the LIFE® OxygenPac, a wall-mounted emergency oxygen unit that can be used as both a resuscitator for non-breathing victims, or as an inhalator for breathing victims; and LIFE® CPR masks which feature a universal fit for both children and adults, with a one-way valve and filter that prevents the transfer of contagions and cross-contamination.

“We are delighted to introduce more consumers to this very important Emergency Oxygen and CPR Administration equipment from the LIFE® Corporation,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Lightweight, portable and easy to use with clear instructions, these high quality emergency oxygen units are a must-have for emergency preparedness in any setting. Being able to administer oxygen and other life saving techniques before an ambulance has time to arrive often prevents further serious injury and saves lives. With these LIFE® oxygen units that offer both the FDA-recommended six LPM along with the AHA-recommended 12 LPM, you can rest assured knowing that you, your family, or your employees will have access to the highest quality oxygen if an emergency should arise that requires it.”
