A portable oxygen generator

Anaesthesia. 1986 May;41(5):516-8. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2044.1986.tb13277.x.


The use of a portable generator which liberates oxygen from hydrogen peroxide solutions has been investigated in veterinary anaesthesia to assess its potential as an alternative to conventional oxygen supplies both in emergency situations and in the event of failure of cylinder systems. The reliability of the supply appears to be good and the operation of the generator simple, making it suitable for a number of potential uses. It should compare favourably with oxygen concentrator devices used for similar purposes.
