    John, I would highly recommend coming over to IMSH 2017 (Jan)!!! This is a great medical instruction device and we can probably get it into the simulation centers if you're interested in getting it out there. As an aside, I'll be teaching there, so if you run into any resistance, ask for Dr. Clint LeClair.

    Quick Release for Medical Air Tubing

    I get the frustration of long cords getting caught. I applaud the innovative thought behind this hack. However, as a physician, I have to strongly advise against anyone ever doing this. Oxygen delivery has to be medically supervised because the pressure and concentration has to be titrated accordingly. Further, oxygen deprivation is not necessarily like drowning where you know you are stressing your body to potential death. Moreso, it can be a slow process of taxing your already-compromised body to the point where once you recognize the problem, medical intervention is necessary and potentially too little, too late.

Again, I think you are on the right track as far as your thought process. But medical device innovation requires failure testing and redundancy-minded safety before implementation. Keep at it! Open-source medical devices are a component of our future. But we need to ensure safety before releasing our inventions into the wild- in this domain. (And yes, thank you for premising this all with "this is not FDA approved or sterile", etc. But you didn't say this was informative-only...)
