NOTTINGHAM, England (Dec. 9, 2007)—Luxfer Gas Cylinders will exhibit its state-of-the-art, lightweight Luxfer Medical gas cylinder range at Arab Health 2008, a major international hospital, medical equipment and services exhibition to be held Jan. 28-31 in Dubai, UAE, at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The largest healthcare event in the Middle East, in 2007 the Arab Health exhibition attracted 2,189 companies from 67 countries and nearly 38,000 visitors.

Aluminium and composite Luxfer Medical oxygen cylinders, lightweight alternatives to conventional steel cylinders, allow oxygen patients to remain active longer—and medical staff can transport these cylinders much more easily with reduced risk of injury. Strong, durable Luxfer Medical cylinders not only provide as much or more gas capacity as conventional cylinders, they are also a cost-effective alternative to liquid oxygen systems.

Used in home oxygen therapy, emergency medical services (EMS), pre-hospital care, and in hospitals, nursing homes and other medical institutions, Luxfer Medical cylinders are also non-magnetic and safe for use around MRI equipment.

Vicky Butler of Luxfer Gas Cylinders said: “We’re delighted to be exhibiting at Arab Health 2008, where we not only plan to enhance our presence in the Middle East, but also to advance Luxfer’s long-term commitment to working with global health organisations, physician and therapist organisations and patient groups to improve treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and other respiratory disorders.”
