Portable Oxygen Concentrator

by DengZhiwei on November 23, 2020

Do you have low levels of oxygen in your blood due to respiratory problems, such as COPD, asthma, sleep apnea, cystic fibrosis, or lung disease?

If so, your doctor may recommend the use of supplemental oxygen. In the past, your choices of oxygen devices were bulky tanks or cylinders that limited mobility and could even be dangerous. Fortunately, oxygen therapy technology has come a long way. Those who are in need of added oxygen can now choose between multiple home or portable oxygen concentrator options.

Here, we provide an overview of how oxygen concentrators work and help you choose the best portable machine to fit your needs.

The importance of Oxygen to humans

If you lacks oxygen, the function and immunity of various organs will decrease, which will promote the ability to resist the virus. Experts pointed out: "Without oxygen, people's life activities will stop; lack of oxygen will cause people's organic disease." This kind of disease is caused by the long-term lack of oxygen in the immune system and the formation of functional disorders.

Modern people require a high-quality life and a healthy and confident life, so oxygen must be supplemented. Oxygen supplementation has become a top priority for human health. With the popularization and development of home oxygen inhalers, oxygen concentrator has become possible.

Therefore, oxygen concentrator are the best choice for people.

What is an oxygen concentrator?

Oxygen concentrator devices use batteries or plug them into sockets to receive, purify and distribute the air of people with low oxygen levels in the blood. These devices are lighter and smaller than traditional oxygen tanks. For people who need more oxygen, they can lead to a more active lifestyle.

  • Home oxygen concentrators

A Home Oxygen Concentrator is a unique device which helps to concenter room air into pure, medical grade oxygen for therapeutic uses. Today’s advanced technology home oxygen concentrators are designed to be quiet, lightweight and extremely energy efficient. Patients who depend on constant medical grade oxygen for breathing will benefit greatly from the purchase of a home o2 concentrator.

– The oxygen machine for home use pulls in surrounding air (ambient air from the room)

– It starts the compression process

– It removes the Nitrogen

– It delivers highly purified oxygen for therapeutic uses

– Provides the oxygen through the nasal cannula

Home oxygen concentrators can deliver anywhere between 1-10 liters per minute of oxygen, based on your prescription. According to several health studies, not all patients who require long-term oxygen therapy follow their treatments rigorously. Many of these patients complain about the lack of compliance, or difficulty in using the concentrators at home (during the day & sleep). In addition, these machines are heavier. They typically weigh between 40-60 lbs, and they are not very easy to be moved from one room to another.

  • Portable oxygen concentrators

Portable oxygen concentrators are smaller in size that stationary home oxygen concentrator units and are therefore more mobile. They are small enough to carry around, most are FAA-approved for air travel, and can operate on a battery for added flexibility.

– It takes air from the room.

– It purifies it.

– The oxygen is then compressed.

– Nitrogen is removed from the air. Before air goes into the concentrator, it contains 80 percent nitrogen and only 20 percent oxygen.

– The portable oxygen concentrator converts the air to 90-95 percent pure oxygen and just 5-10 percent nitrogen.

– Nitrogen is then separated to make sure you get the highest dose of oxygen possible.

Portable oxygen concentrators are far less dangerous than traditional oxygen concentrators, which can rupture. The main benefit of a portable oxygen concentrator is that it makes its own air, so you do not have to worry about replacing an oxygen tank. This increased mobility means that just because you need oxygen, you are not forced to cart around an oxygen tank. And it is more convenient for Home, Car, Travel......

  1. Pulse Modedelivers oxygen only when the patient inhales. There is less effort on the machine since it stops during exhalation, which in turn reduces battery use. These portable oxygen concentrators are smaller in size and typically weigh around 6 lbs. Note: Your prescription would need to indicate your pulse dose settings

  2. Continuous Flowdoes exactly as it sounds and provides a constant flow of oxygen to the user, regardless of inhalation or exhalation. Providing continuous flow oxygen requires larger parts, so these devices tend to be over 10 lbs. Note: Not all portable oxygen concentrators have a continuous flow mode.
