INHALO® integrated valve cylinder
Designed in consultation with healthcare professionals, the revolutionary INHALO® design integrates cylinder, valve, regulator and flow meter into a single, robust, lightweight and reliable unit. With the INHALO® medical oxygen integrated valve cylinder, therapy can be started right away, without any complex set-up or unnecessary manual handling. The INHALO® medical oxygen cylinders are now fast becoming the cylinder of choice for many healthcare providers.
Featuring a built-in pressure regulator, easy on/off handwheel and integral flow selector, the INHALO® is designed to make cylinder operation and medical oxygen administration easier for healthcare staff, as there is no need to attach a regulator. Pressure is precisely released and controlled, and with a wide range of flow settings, you can accurately select the treatment to meet the patient’s prescription.
With the integrated valve cylinder, you get low constant outlet pressure and flow settings to match your requirements.
The cylinder has a “live” contents gauge, giving you a clear indication of contents at all times, even when the cylinder is turned off.
The INHALO® is constructed from lightweight materials, making it easier and safer to handle than conventional steel cylinders.
