Providing oxygen is one of the most essential roles of a medical first responder. It is often the first treatment administered at the scene of an emergency and can literally mean the difference between life and death.
  • Permanent brain damage from lack of oxygen starts between 4-6 minutes
  • Every increasing minute decreases the chances of survival
  • Average ambulance response time is 10 minutes and oxygen administration at this stage is too late
  • On average, our 6,000 United Hatzalah medics arrive at a scene in 3 minutes (and in metropolitan cities, 90 seconds)
  • By donating oxygen tanks to United Hatzalah you are partnering with our volunteer medics treating Covid-19 patients.
Help us to ensure we can keep giving Israelis the breath of life. Together, we can infuse our medics with the most essential aspect of lifesaving.

Thank you for partnering with United Hatzalah of Israel.

FACTS ABOUT OXYGEN TANKS AND THIS EMERGENCY CAMPAIGN:

How often is oxygen used?

Our 6,000 medics respond to 1,800 emergencies throughout Israel every day. In 2019 oxygen was administered on 70% of calls relating to breathing and cardiac-related emergencies.


What is the need at this time?

In 2019, United Hatzalah filled 6 million liters of empty oxygen tanks, at a cost of $280,000. Additionally, United Hatzalah needs to replace approximately 2,000 oxygen tanks urgently, due to new regulations made by the Ministry of Health. These tanks must be removed immediately from volunteers’ medical bags and urgently need to be replaced. As oxygen is the “bread and butter” of lifesaving, it is vital that this happens immediately.


What additional equipment is purchased with an oxygen tank?

Physically, each oxygen tank contains an oxygen cylinder, a regulator with a pressure gauge with a functioning flow meter, a delivery device such as a resuscitation mask, and a disposable mask. In addition, your purchase contributes towards the training of our medics to safely administer oxygen. The use of an oxygen tank may seem simple but there are many safety issues that need careful training before one becomes a medic.


When does one need to administer oxygen?

The air a person normally breathes contains approximately 21% oxygen. When a patient is getting less oxygen than required for an extended period they are described as having hypoxia. This is when oxygen needs to be administered. In distress, a patient’s oxygen supply may be compromised. With each passing minute, limited oxygen means potential severe damage.


What are the signs and symptoms of hypoxia?

These include increased breathing and heart rate, shortness of breath, low oxygenation, changes in the level of consciousness, restlessness, cyanosis (bluish color on lips and nailbeds), or chest pain.

Saving Time. Saving Lives.

Founded in 2006, United Hatzalah has grown to become the largest independent, non-profit, nationally recognized and fully-volunteer emergency medical services (EMS) organization in Israel, responding to over 1,800 emergency calls a day. United Hatzalah's 6,000 medics, paramedics, and doctors create a web of emergency first responders, each connected to a GPS-based dispatch system which, together with our innovative transportation solutions, provides lifesaving aid faster than any other EMS organization in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

United Hatzalah has democratized access to emergency medical services by providing its services free of charge and has improved victim outcomes by getting first responders to the scene of an emergency three times faster than an ambulance. Our volunteers, spotted at every medical emergency, have been dubbed 'Angels in Orange' after their trademark orange vests.
