Highlights

  • One of the lightest-weight stationary oxygen concentrators at only 18 pounds
  • Three-button control making it simple to use
  • Energy-efficient operation saves money
  • Quieter than a refrigerator when in use

Appearance

While standard oxygen concentrators designed for daily use are often large, bulky and unsightly, the Inogen at Home oxygen concentrator is one of the most inconspicuous and attractive units available. Although it is meant for stationary use, its weight — just 18 pounds, 13 pounds lighter than its closest competitor — makes it easy to move around the home, giving users far more independence and freedom. The unit has been designed to operate quietly as well; it registers at just 40 dB, the same as a refrigerator humming or a running desktop computer when operating at flow setting 2.

The unit is designed with a slim white casing with light blue panels at the base and top; the particle filter is located at the side of the unit. The control panel features just three silver and blue buttons to operate the oxygen concentrator and the nozzle fitting to which the user fits the nasal cannula is located to the right of the panel. The branding of the Inogen at Home oxygen concentrator is subtle, with the name of the unit printed in understated lettering just above the control panel.

The Inogen at Home oxygen concentrator is made for patients who require 24/7 oxygen in their homes, meaning that it remains in one location. However, because the unit is so lightweight, it can be easily moved by the user anywhere there is a power outlet. Additionally, the concentrator contains automatic sensors to allow for worldwide usage, allowing you to use the stationary oxygen concentrator in any country. Because the unit consumes far less power than larger machines, it can save you far more in electricity costs — up to $300 per year.

Controls and Care

The control panel, located at the top for easy access, features just three buttons to control the entire unit: the on/off button and two flow setting control buttons. Flow settings range from one to five liters per minute; the current setting will be displayed on the display screen. Once the selected oxygen flow rate is achieved — generally about five minutes after the unit is powered on — a green LED next to the flow setting numbers will illuminate.

Two other indicators; the blue indicator light, and the general caution indicator are located directly next to the on/off button. The blue light indicates that the unit requires maintenance within 30 days, while the caution indicator will illuminate in yellow, accompanied by a double beep, to show various alerts, such as low oxygen or flow or a sensor failure. A flashing light accompanied by a triple beep will alert users to an issue that must be immediately fixed.
