Do not touch liquid oxygen or parts that have been in contact with liquid oxygen. Liquid oxygen is exteremly cold (-297°F / -183°C). When touched, liquid oxygen, or parts of the equipment that have been carrying liquid oxygen, can freeze skin and body tissue. If a discharge of liquid oxygen from the reservoir fill connector occurs, stay away from the reservoir and notify your oxygen supplier immediately. · Open windows and doors to ventilate the room. · Shut off stoves, heaters and other sources of flame or heat.
