How many of you have O2 in your office?
We have a Global teacher in our school district who wants us to have it in our office. We are a rural community with excellent an excellent response time by our vol. amb. service (<5 minutes) and they bring the O2 with them.
What brought up this discussion, was, one of the "summer boys" put his arm through a window when cleaning and needed 54 sutures. He lost some blood and was a little shocky when he arrived at the nurses office. Pressure was applied, elevated arm, and by the time she got his arm raised the ambulance was in her office. Now the global teacher wants/feels we need to have O2 on site.
Any one know what is involved with this? Any arguements for or against this. So far, we (3 nurses in my school) are against.
