Success Stories
MIROLA RESCUE AB

FIDO has a long action time in relation to the amount of oxygen consumed: it consumes 80l litres of free gas, and with a 40cl bottle of oxygen will provide one hour of treatment. FIDO delivers 43% to 89% of oxygen if needed, and generates warm return air to the patient (about 33 degrees Celsius and humid air <95%). FIDO is user friendly for a broad spectrum of end-users, ranging from emergency and rescue services to military outfits and diving communities.
