Straightforward ventilation hire becomes dual-purpose healthcare solution
In early 2020, Andrews Sykes was contacted by a regional healthcare trust that was looking for some ventilation equipment on behalf of three of their hospitals. Our client was keen to prevent the development of oxygen-rich environments caused by the gas being administered as part of patient therapy.
Newly introduced guidance now recommends minimal oxygen use because the benefits are uncertain, with evidence suggesting there are several potential dangers. On top of this, oxygen enrichment also significantly increases the risk of fires or explosions due to a substantially more intense atmosphere.
