Air Liquide Healthcare is proud to introduce TAKEO2™ Medical Oxygen Cylinders, one of the world's first digital integrated cylinders, Australia is one of the first countries outside of Europe to implement this new technology.
TAKEO2™ is a major innovation in the Medical Oxygen field. This new generation cylinder combines a built in pressure regulator, an ergonomic cap and a patented digital gauge, to provide healthcare professionals with the industry's safest and most cost effective medical oxygen delivery system.
When the cylinder is in use, the patented digital pressure gauge calculates and displays the time remaining in hours and minutes. So no more estimations or calculations of the remaining content are required as the TAKEO2™ Oxygen Cylinder provides direct intelligible information to medical staff with the remaining treatment time at the selected flow.
The device also features visual and audible warning alerts which indicate when critical levels are reached. When the cylinder is not in use, it displays the available volume in litres.
This technology allows the caregivers to better manage the administration of medical oxygen by viewing at a
glance the remaining cylinder contents.
This solution provides major benefits to the hospitals and healthcare providers:
Greater patient safety by reducing the risk of oxygen supply interruption, especially during patient transport: staff can safely plan oxygen dependent transfers having immediate and accurate cylinders duration time.
Improved ease of use and faster oxygen set-ups: with an ergonomic cap, a comfortable handle and an easier access and manipulation of flow selector, patient care is facilitated and caregivers can focus on their primary responsibility, the patient.
Cost efficiency through an effective use of the cylinder content: the staff is more confident to use most of the contents of the cylinders as they have a better control of the autonomy of the cylinder with direct and exact information on remaining time.
