FlyDoc breakdown?

I just saw this video

I am just wondering what FlyDoc is, and what they are looking for here, I can tell that oxygen was an issue, but why radio oxygen three times? Also, wow at the calmness levels!

FlyDoc is the Royal Flying Doctors Service. They provide medical services to remote communities.

O2 call over the last reported com freq with DQP was to alert a possibly hypoxic, disoriented pilot to get his mask on. Reason they wanted FlyDoc 425 to make they call was his physical proximity - stronger RF signal in case DQP was having radio/antenna problems.
