COMBAT CRITICAL CARE CORPORATION Announces The O2PAK CHEMICAL OXYGEN GENERATOR
COMBAT CRITICAL CARE CORPORATION, a subsidiary of Pacific Precision Products, proudly announces the launch of a very unique product - the O2PAK portable chemical oxygen generator.
The O2PAK™ provides armed forces the capability to provide oxygen , immediately at the point of contact, to battlefield casualties within seconds of injury, thereby increasing chances of survival and recovery in cases of life-threatening injury.
The O2PAK™ is a compact, lightweight, hand-held unit (9 inches/ 23 centimeter high, for 2.8 pounds/ 1,3 kilogram) and is small enough to be carried by every soldier in a standard military backpack - it is activated within seconds, delivering 99% pure oxygen at a flow-rate of 4-to 8 LPM for 20-25 minutes in any position (vertical, horizontal). The O2PAK™ is a single-use/disposable source of oxygen that can be very rapidly deployed and activated in the most challenging or stressful situations.
The O2PAK™ has been specifically designed to address field requirements and is qualified for use in hostile and inaccessible environments (extreme high/low temperatures, pressure, humidity) as well as high altitudes (up 12 000 m/40 000 ft). Extensive scientific research and development and testing has be done under a wide variety of operational conditions to prove safety and efficacy - these include medical, ballistic, blast and fire tests. The O2PAK™ has been cleared by the FDA.
The O2PAK™ is not pressurised, requires no filling or mixing, no maintenance and has an extra-long shelf-life of 4 years. Solid-state chemical oxygen is utilised to produce oxygen, thereby eliminating the risk of explosion under enemy fire or hazardous conditions (eg. mine/IED detonation). It does not require electricity, battery connection or recharging and can be stored under severe conditions for prolonged periods, immediately ready for use when required.
The O2PAK™ is particularly suitable for units operating in abnormal and remote environments who are exposed to a high risk of serious injury - these include special operations forces, early entry and rapidly mobile land forces, airborne forces, marines, navy divers, demining/ EOD engineers, peacekeeping forces, SWAT teams, search and rescue teams, and disaster relief organizations.
The O2PAK™ is also ideal for storage and readily-available use in a variety of military vehicles such as mine proof vehicles, infantry fighting vehicles, NBC protected vehicles, fire fighting vehicles, armoured personnel carriers, tanks, helicopters and naval vessels.
