Oxygen is used in many areas of medical care in hospitals. The availability of oxygen often makes the difference between life and death which is why securing its supply is a top priority. The ICOT Group, which operates hospitals in several locations across the Canary Islands, uses an INMATEC oxygen generator in its newly built hospital in Telde, Gran Canaria. Experience of oxygen cylinder supply shortages on the island in the Atlantic has contributed to the Group’s decision. Moreover, the com- pany reduces costs considerably and the impact on the environment thanks to on-site production.
