Essex Industries is issued patent on the MODS

Published:  15 April, 2013

The low pressure, portable 75-litre liquid oxygen storage and gaseous distribution system is capable of supplying up to 64,500 gaseous litres of on-board oxygen.

As many as 150 patients can receive oxygen at the same time through the use of Patient Distribution Kits (PDK) connected to the Mass Oxygen Distribution System.

The MODS requires no external power so it can be deployed and set-up anywhere. Once in use, the system requires very little manpower, so rescue personnel can focus on the needs of their patients.

The main components of the MODS are adapted from Essex military life support systems with decades of field experience.  The MODS is certified to DOT 4L for safe LOX transport and has FDA 510K clearance.
