"Being Prepared for the Worst"
Unbeknowest to most people, medical gases used for life-saving purposes are very susceptible to the harmful effects of a influenza pandemic.
If the number of people who are violently stricken by the effects of a virus, the supplies that are needed to keep them alive might soon become in such high demand, that there will not be enough to treat every flu patient.
And while it is very necessary for people to take advantage of these resources, it is also necessary that there is a large enough supply to treat the estimated 1 million people who will be infected with this year's flu.
If you are at all concerned that your local hospital or health care physician does not have enough medical gases on hand, be sure to contact them right away. It is your responsibility to ensure your safety as well as those around you.
