Why Supplemental Oxygen Is Important For First Aid Kits

During a health emergency, it’s common to see first responders and EMTs administering medical-grade oxygen to patients. Oxygen is essential for life. Did you know that oxygen can be administered to ANYONE because no one is allergic to oxygen? Your body uses oxygen to create energy, for brain health, to keep tissues and organs functioning properly, for metabolization and more. So adding supplemental oxygen to any home or workplace emergency kit only makes sense.

First Aid Kit

Did you know that according to the CDC, nearly half of U.S. households do not have the proper resources or plans in place in case of a home emergency?

The majority of medical emergencies take place at home, and while you certainly can’t plan for EVERY type of emergency, you can have a reliable emergency kit to help you or a loved one during the important minutes before first responders arrive.

First Aid Kit

In any home emergency kit, it’s important to have band-aids, gauze pads, gloves, alcohol pads, aspirin, burn gel, antibiotic ointment, tape, tweezers and scissors. Thanks to Boost Oxygen 95% Pure Oxygen canisters, portable supplemental oxygen can now be added to any home or workplace emergency kit.
