These units were designed more for placement in industrial settings, public places that maintained a First-Aid Station, or aircraft, but were sometimes found on emergency units that were unable to “fund“ more sophisticated oxygen delivery systems, or fire/rescue units that were either not trained in oxygen therapy, or did not respond to medical emergencies on a regular basis. They were very easy to put into use. The combination Mask/regulator screwed onto the top of the oxygen sphere, and by placing the mask on the patient and tipping the sphere either toward or away from the patient would activate the oxygen flow by way of a valve built into the metal flow tube between the mask and regulator.
