Offord Rollins, a respiratory therapist 30 years ago saw a patient with a pressure ulcer on the face from pressure caused by an oxygen mask and a NG tube. Mr. Rollins thought that there must be a way to prevent this. He developed and patented the "Naso-gastric" oxygen mask. Years later a brief patient evaluation with a pulmonologist led to a dream that would hopefully unshackle the respiratory therapists from stagnant technology. That dream led to the Rollins SmartMask- a true breakthrough in oxygen therapy.
