INHALO® integrated valve cylinder
Designed in consultation with healthcare professionals, the revolutionary INHALO design integrates cylinder, valve, regulator and flow meter into a single, robust, lightweight and reliable unit. With the INHALO therapy can be started right away, without any complex set-up or unnecessary manual handling. The INHALO medical oxygen cylinders are now fast becoming the cylinder of choice for many healthcare providers around the world.
Featuring a built-in pressure regulator, always live contents gauge and integral flow selector, the INHALO is designed to make portable oxygen administration faster, safer and easier for healthcare staff, as there is no need to attach or change regulators. Pressure is precisely released and controlled, and with a wide range of flow settings, you can accurately select the treatment to meet the patient’s prescription.
BOC is developing a New Zealand version of the INHALO that will be available in the near future. BOC was the first company to introduce this technology to the healthcare sector. Its popularity has gone from strength to strength, as customers have discovered how efficient and convenient it is to use.
