Selecting a Concentrator Rental
Our rental program provides oxygen users with the mobility to travel anytime and anywhere. We have an extensive rental fleet of portable concentrators that include both pulse and continuous flow machines. All of our rental machines are FAA approved for flight.
Our rental concentrators include the SeQual Eclipse, Inogen One G3, Respironics EverGo and Respironics SimplyGo.
Give us a call today and tell us your travel plans. One of our respiratory specialists will help you pick the right concentrator for your travel needs, as well as the correct number of batteries for your trip. Our weekly rental packages start at just $245.
Your rental concentrator will ship via UPS so it arrives at least 24 hours before you need the machine (7 day minimum for shipping, 4 day minimum for local). Our support staff is available at 1-877-774-9271 should you have any questions regarding the unit or its operation.
How much battery life do I need?
The FAA requires that you carry sufficient battery life to power your portable concentrator for at least 150% of your flight time. (For example, if you have a 4 hour flight, you would need 6 hours of battery life). Please have at least 2 batteries on your flight, even if it's a short one, as an extra battery allows you a back-up in case you experience travel delays.
What policies do airlines have regarding concentrator batteries?
American Airlines, US Airways: FAA Guidelines: 150% of scheduled flight time
Continental and United: Flight time + 3 hours
Delta, Frontier, Northwest and Southwest: 150% of scheduled flight time and ground time
What else do the airlines require?
Many airlines require a note from your doctor as well as advanced notification (often 48 hours) before boarding. Please visit our Tips for Traveling with Portable Oxygen Concentrators
for more information and additional resources regarding the medical device policies for each of the major airlines. Please contact your airline’s reservation desk directly if you have any special circumstances.
Do I need to purchase any tubing or a cannula?
No, a brand new cannula is included in your rental fee.
Is a pull cart included with the portable concentrator?
It depends on the oxygen machine you rent. Most come with a pull cart for easy portability. Some are small and light enough to only need a bag with a shoulder strap.
How long do the batteries last?
Battery life varies between different brands and models of portable concentrators. Personal settings of oxygen delivery can greatly impact battery life as well. Our respiratory therapists will use your oxygen flow requirements when determining how many batteries you will need for your trip.
What do I need to do when the concentrator arrives?
Be sure to inspect the concentrator as soon as it arrives to ensure there is no damage and that is it operating correctly. If you have any questions about the unit, or encounter any problems, please call us at 1.877.774.9271.
How do I return the concentrator?
Use the original packaging material and place the concentrator in the return box. Tape us and cross out or remove any existing labels. Place the UPS label securely on the top of the box. Once this is completed, drop off the return box at any UPS store, Staples or OfficeMax location. You can also have UPS pick up the rental, but they charge $6 for fuel costs.
