When Life is a Matter of One Extra Breath
Ever engaged in a water
recreation or sport activity where you were caught gasping for air fearing for
the worst? Most anyone you ask will likely say yes. Second Breath is a compact,
patented, wearable life-saving device designed to provide an immediate
supply of air in times of respiratory distress. Among its many applications are
emergency situations while participating in water-sports (such as board or body
surfing, snorkeling, free-diving, spear fishing, kayaking, boating, etc.), in
life-threatening health/medical and fire situations (both at home and work), or
while experiencing oxygen deficits at high altitude.
Emergency Air Supply Worn on the Wrist
Second Breath is a
miniature, self-contained air dispenser that is worn around the wrist with the
ease and comfort of a watch band. But underneath this marvel of simplicity and
convenience lies a sophisticated and ingenious engineering design. Air is
actuated through a rubber mouthpiece on the device. It is
neither tank-based nor is air actuated through a tube as with all
other emergency oxygen supply devices currently available. Its small size and
unique design will not interfere with the wearers' activities. Second
Breath is totally unique, there is no similar competitive product on the market.
Second Breath is Unique and Unobtrusive
Currently available portable emergency
oxygen supply devices use cumbersome tanks that are either hand-held or strapped
onto the torso of the user. Air is delivered to the user through a mouthpiece
attached to a hose connected to the air tank. When not in use, the hose and the
mouthpiece either dangle freely or are tucked away; which will most likely
hinder a user’s activities and movements or in times of need have to fumble
under stressful conditions to gain access to air supply. Furthermore, currently
available portable emergency oxygen devices are not suitable for carrying (as an
emergency back up air supply) while engaging in recreational or sports
activities nor do they provide the ideal condition for use in an emergency.
Second Breath Saves Lives
is refillable via hand pump or scuba tank. It can also be built into apparel
such as a wet suit. Made of light weight aluminum, current model provides
approximately 15 breaths of air on land or 5-8 breaths in water. It is
refillable with either a hand-pump or air tank.
With the rate of participation in water
sports increasing exponentially worldwide, Second Breath could well be as
important as the “seatbelt” of water sports.
