Dear Mr. Artinian,
I would like to give you an interim report on our experience
with the use of the Oxylator EM-100. We have instituted a study
of this device in the prehospital setting and to date have enrolled
16 patients, two of whom are in the control group. The Oxylator
EM-100 has been used successfully on these 14 patients. We have
received favorable comments from the paramedics regarding the
ease of use of the device and have not experienced any mechanical
problems with it to date. We plan to continue with this project
until we have sufficient numbers of patients enrolled in the
Taryn Kennedy M.D.
