  • The Lifechoice Activox 4L and a Comfortable Oxygen Therapy Experience

    Whether you're new to oxygen therapy, or if you've been using medical oxygen for many years, you have likely experienced one major problem – the discomfort that follows a flow of air being pushed in your airways. This discomfort is described as being a light irritation in the back of the throat, or a dry feeling in the nasal passages, going down into the throat.

    Thankfully, there have been innovations in oxygen therapy to fix this problem. The newest unit with two great comfort features known "Auto Mode" and "PULSE WAVE" technology is the Lifechoice Activox 4L mobile concentrator.

    They both work together to make sure the oxygen you're getting isn't just getting pushed into your airways before you're ready for it. The main cause of airway dryness and discomfort is too much air being delivered at once, and often not exactly when it is needed.

  • What Oxygen Concentrators Work Best During Cold Weather?

    We recently received a question about which portable oxygen concentrators work best in frigid weather:

    "My husband and I are new to this oxygen stuff, the doctor just prescribed it. He is only 49 years old, so you can imagine there is still plenty to do, no sedentary lifestyle here! He feels quite tethered to the bed, let alone the house! So we are looking into renting or purchasing a portable oxygen concentrator unit. He likes the very small inconspicuous one, AirSep Focus & I thought the Respironics Simply Go would be more practical, battery duration & all.

  • Oxygen Concentrators to Use at High Elevations

    If you live up in the mountains, you know that the air is much thinner than it is closer to sea level. You might be used to it, but there is still less oxygen available to breathe in. That also means less oxygen that an oxygen concentrator has to work with. Oxygen concentrators must be strong enough to operate at higher elevations, so you would need one that has a higher maximum operational elevation.

    You might also want to go hiking or take a trip up into the mountains, but maybe your lung capacity isn't as strong as it used to be. You should first get the advice of your doctor before you do anything strenuous is you have health issues, but an oxygen concentrator might be the best way to stay healthy.

  • High Flow Stationary Oxygen Concentrators

    Sometimes an oxygen concentrator with a high flow is necessary to meet a patient's oxygen requirements. A higher setting is often needed for more severe cases of low oxygen in the blood stream. When someone with healthy lungs takes a breath, they are really only breathing in 21% oxygen in the air. For someone with moderate to severe COPD, that percent will be much lower.

    "High flow" Units have settings that go as high as 10 LPM (liters per minute) of continuous flow. Some can only go up to 5 LPM, while the highest settings that POCs have are 3 LPM and 196 ml/min of pulse dose oxygen.
