OXYMAT A/S, a Denmark-based gas generator designer, has supplied an oxygen (O2) system to the newly built part of The San Fernando Teaching Hospital in Trinidad and Tobago.
The pressure swing adsorption (PSA) generator is now operating and supplying O2 for all 216 beds in the hospital.
The system provides a capacity of 28.2m3 per hour of O2 at 95% purity and 5 bar(g) outlet pressure.
A statement said that OXYMAT’s PSA generator has been supplied with medical approval and all certifications for medical purposes.
The company said, “We are proud to announce that OXYMAT is a part of the medical health system in Trinidad and Tobago.”
It is understood that the hospital has seen a cost reduction of around 80% by eliminating cylinder deliveries.
The United States Air Force (USAF) has acquired new equipment that will allow pilots and others to detect signs of hypoxia, or oxygen (O2) deprivation.
