The LIFELINE kit is provided in a purpose-made, rucksack-style carry case for easy transportation to the casualty. It contains a lightweight medical oxygen cylinder with an integral regulator and a selection of oxygen masks.

Oxygen can be delivered between 1 and 15 litres per minute. This provides up to half an hour of treatment at the highest flow rate, helping to prevent the casualty from deteriorating prior to the arrival of professional medical assistance. 

The oxygen cylinder is inspected annually by a BOC employee to ensure that the cylinder is in good working order. A report is produced and left to the customer as an auditing record.

BOC Healthcare’s dedicated LIFELINE team provide a next working day refill service. The kit can also be tailored to meet your specific requirements with additional equipment such as :

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


  • Safe and simple to use
  • Fully portable
  • Lightweight oxygen cylinder with built-in, integral regulator
  • Variable flow rates from 1 to 15 litres per minute
  • Annual cylinder maintenance by BOC medical
  • Single annual service charge
  • Next working day refills (Monday to Friday & excludes some remote geographies)
  • Reduces the risk of cross-infection due to minimal patient contact
