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.

This new technology allows caregivers to better manage the administration of medical oxygen, by viewing the remaining time and volume available at a glance.

What does TAKEO2™ mean for me?

This solution provides major benefits to healthcare providers:

Greater patient safety by reducing the risk of oxygen supply interruption:

  • Staff can safely plan oxygen dependent transfers having immediate and accurate cylinder duration time.
  • The permanent display of the remaining time and available volume as well as the safety alerts indicate when the cylinder needs to be replaced.
  • The integrated valve with built-in pressure regulator provides a higher level of safety as it reduces the possibility of adiabatic compression associated with detachable pressure regulators.

Improved ease of use and faster oxygen set ups:

  • With an ergonomic cap, a comfortable handle and a straightforward flow selector, patient care is significantly facilitated.
  • The time-related data provides an unprecedented comfort level to caregivers who can better focus on their primary responsibility, the patient.

Cost efficiency through an effective use of the cylinder content and reduced equipment cost:

  • With direct and exact information on remaining time, staff members are more confident to use most of the cylinder contents as they have a better control of the autonomy of the cylinder.
  • Featuring an integrated valve, TAKEO2 does not require a separate regulator to be attached. This eliminates the need to purchase regulators for medical oxygen cylinders, or to manage their maintenance and repair.

The use of the integrated TAKEO2 cylinders reduces redundant and inefficient activities, enables caregivers to reallocate their time on the patients and delivers significant cost savings for the healthcare facilities.

How does it work?

When the cylinder is in use, the patented digital pressure gauge calculates and displays the time remaining in hours and minutes. No more estimations or calculations of the remaining content are required as TAKEO2 cylinder provides direct intelligible information to medical staff with the remaining treatment time at the selected flow.

When the cylinder is not in use, it displays the available volume in litres. The device also features visual and audible warning alerts which indicate when critical levels are reached.

Safety messages are triggered:

  • When oxygen pressure is under 50 bars (¼ content)
  • When the remaining contents fall below 15 minutes
