When sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) strikes, time is of the essence. For every minute without defibrillation, one’s survival chances decrease by approximately 7-10%.
If defibrillation is undertaken quickly, then most deaths by SCA need not occur. For a high success rate, though, defibrillation must be used within 4-5 minutes.

Resuscitation equipment 

It is hard to anticipate medical emergencies. They are unpredictable by nature. But being able to find and use the appropriate emergency equipment quickly can save lives. Of course the people who arrive first on the scene also need to be trained to a high level in the use of the equipment.

LIFELINE is a range of resuscitation equipment that can be used not just by medical professionals such as doctors and dentists, but by trained first aiders wherever they may work. The LIFELINE range includes oxygen cylinders and Automated External Defibrillators.

  • Pulse Oximeters
  • Defibrillators

BOC LIFELINE: emergency oxygen kit

LIFELINE oxygen is easy to transport as it comes in its own specially designed bag that resembles a rucksack. In the bag is a lightweight oxygen cylinder with a built-in regulator and several oxygen masks.

Oxygen can be administered at a rate of between 1 and 15 litres per minute, giving up to half an hour of treatment at the maximum flow rate. Being able to provide oxygen in this way prevents the patient’s condition from worsening while waiting for professional medical assistance to arrive on the scene.

To ensure the cylinder is in good working condition, a BOC employee will inspect it once a year, creating a report for the customer which can be used as part of your internal audit process.

If you require the cylinder to be refilled, a next working day service is offered by BOC’s dedicated LIFELINE team. If you wish to tailor the equipment you order, the following items can also be obtained:

  • Bag valve masks
  • Paediatric masks
  • Airways
  • Suction devices


  • Easy to use and safe
  • Highly portable
  • Lightweight cylinder with integral regulator
  • Flow rates can be varied (ranging from 1-15 litres per minute)
  • Yearly check of cylinder by BOC Healthcare
  • One annual service charge
  • Next working day refills (Mon-Fri, except for some remote locations)
  • Due to minimal patient contact, the risk of cross infection is minimised
