May 8, 2020 - Already in the Air Products Express Service (APEX) U.S. fleet were three Mobile Medical Tank Trailer oxygen supply vehicles, able to move from location to location to quickly support a medical oxygen supply emergency or critical hospital upgrade. As COVID-19 began to change life’s normalcy in parts of the U.S. and specifically impact the Northeast Region and New York City, Air Products saw a greater potential need for medical oxygen support vehicles. Our Quality, Customer Engineering and Operations teams quickly got to work, and in early March, began converting six Portable Customer Station (PCS) Units—which typically deliver other industrial gases—to be able to provide emergency medical oxygen supply capability. The PCS units do not have a reserve oxygen tank, second vaporizer, medical manifolds, alarm settings, other infrastructure, nor the certifications required for hospital medical oxygen supply. But in less than one week, the teams made the needed infrastructure modifications, completed thorough testing and analysis, and received third-party certification—all making safe medical oxygen supply possible. Thinking differently and working ahead paid off. A converted PCS unit was used at the U.S. Tennis Association’s Billie Jean King National Tennis Center temporary hospital (400-beds) in New York, playing a critical role until a larger and more permanent system could be put in place. Meanwhile, at the Javits Center pop-up hospital (New York), a Mobile Medical Tank Trailer has supported more than 1,000 patients already treated at the site. In all, Air Products now has eight PCS units which can be deployed to locations in need from their bases in Lancaster, Pennsylvania; Osceola, Arkansas; Midlothian, Texas; and Galt and Long Beach, California. We all look forward to a time when these converted medical oxygen PCS units are no longer needed and can revert back to their traditional APEX roles.
