Supplemental Oxygen For Your Emergency Aid Kits

Whether you enjoy traveling, workout out, hiking, skiing, cycling or even soaking up the sun at the beach, everyone has their favorite outdoor activities. But for every adventure, most people have essentials to bring along in a bag or kit – whether for convenience, or in case of an emergency. And just like bottled water, Boost Oxygen is a smart and easy addition to any bag or kit of essentials – no matter your favorite activity!

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.

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 emergency kit only makes sense.

Affected persons and their family members can use My PAK to quickly address emergencies arising from known chronic medical conditions during the critical time between a 911 call and the arrival of first responders. Every second counts. If you’re in the wilderness, high altitude or other remote locations, your only option may be to treat yourself. Chinook’s My PAK™ comes with several supplies, but it can also be personally customized based on location or individual medical needs.

Wear the kit on your belt or keep it in your home, vehicle or purse so that lifesaving supplies are always close at hand. The My PAK features include internal elastic retainers on the top flap, a 4 way stretch pouch with side retainers on the bottom flap, and a cleverly designed back panel that allows you to wear the kit vertically or horizontally on your belt.
