Meeting Hyperbaric Oxygen Hoods Rising Demand

For 25 years, Genesis Plastics Welding has made hyperbaric oxygen hoods, designed to help patients recover from respiratory distress and avoid risks associated with other devices. We are proud to be leveraging our experience to meet rising market demand amid the Cornovirus (COVID-19) pandemic worldwide.

Need for Hyperbaric Oxygen Hoods

As respiratory illnesses rise, so does the demand for high-impact, low-cost, non-invasive ventilation. Oxygen hoods are plastic, oxygen-filled domes that fit like a helmet around a patient’s head.

How effective are they, really?

UChicago Medicine, a health system affiliated with the University of Chicago, reports a couple of studies that followed critically ill patients requiring mechanical breathing assistance. Patients were randomly assigned oxygen hoods or standard face masks. Read more

Genesis Plastics Welding Adds AED Unit

Genesis Plastics Welding Adds AED Unit to Manufacturing Facility

In matters of life and death, single moments matter. Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are an important lifesaving technology that can increase the chance of survival for those who suffer heart-related emergencies, such as a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Genesis Plastics Welding is proud to have an AED unit joining its Indianapolis-area advanced manufacturing plant.

What Is a Cardiac Arrest?

A cardiac arrest occurs when the heart unexpectedly stops beating. It strikes people of all ages, even children and teens. When it occurs, the individual collapses, doesn’t respond or breathe normally. They may gasp or shake. A cardiac arrest can lead to death in minutes, if the individual does not get help immediately. Survival depends on bystanders calling 911, starting CPR and using an AED, if available. Read more
