Accidents and emergencies can happen with and without warnings, such as a severe snowstorm, hurricane or an unexpected fire. When they do happen, everyone, including oxygen therapy users, need to be able to act fast. To make sure that you’ll be prepared for anything, whether it’s an evacuation or a situation where you need to stay put, make sure that you’ve got your oxygen ready to go with you.

One of the greatest benefits that oxygen concentrators give oxygen therapy patients is the freedom to travel, unlike in the earlier days of oxygen tanks. Standard oxygen tanks are not allowed on airlines according to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, restricting the ability for those users to travel.
In May 2009, however, oxygen therapy patients were finally allowed to take off: certain portable oxygen concentrators, approved by the FAA for airline travel, are permitted to be taken on the airplane in the cabin. Not all portable concentrators are permitted, but the list of approved POCs is extensive. Some of our most popular FAA approved portable oxygen concentrators are listed here:
One of the most frequent questions we get asked is "What maintenance does my home or stationary concentrator need?".
Home oxygen concentrators are like any machine, and they require regular maintenance and service to ensure they operate and perform correctly. Luckily, home units (concentrators that run only on AC/house power) are easy to maintain.
To assist with this question, we have developed a general maintenance guide as well as instructions specific to each model of concentrator.
If you’ve been aching to drive coast to coast in an RV or visit those relatives on the opposite side of the country, a portable oxygen concentrator can help make it happen. A standard at-home oxygen concentrator is often too bulky or doesn’t have the power capabilities to run in a car; with oxygen tanks, your car may not have the storage space to pack as many tanks as you need.
Portable oxygen concentrators are made to be used on the go, including in cars and RVs. With portable oxygen concentrators, your main concern is ensuring that the unit can stay powered for long stretches of time. There are two options for powering an oxygen concentrator: using power from the vehicle itself or using batteries.
With the rise in the popularity of portable oxygen concentrators, the number of different models, brands, and features available is also rising. Many of our customers zero in on the Philips SimplyGo and the Ingoen One G3 while searching a for a portable oxygen concentrator, and it can be tough to decide between these two units.
To help you make a selection that is best for your lifestyle we have compared two of our most popular concentrators the Respironics SimplyGo and Inogen One G3.
