Reviews of Respironics Oxygen Products

Respirionics is one of the leading brands in oxygen concentrators, CPAP machines and accessories, and they manufacture some of our customer favorites. If you are an active or traveling patient with COPD who needs oxygen therapy, you will be happy to know that we carry two Respirionics portable oxygen concentrators for rent! They are the EverGo and SimplyGo models.

The EverGo and the SimplyGo

These are two great models, and you can take them with you wherever you go, as long as you can charge the batteries periodically, and have access to a power supply.

Which Respirionics Portable Model Should I Choose to Rent or Buy?

There is one main difference between these two concentrators – the EverGo can only deliver a pulse dose, and the SimplyGo features both pulse dose and continuous flow settings. If you require a continuous flow of oxygen to maintain a safe blood oxygen level, then you will need to choose the SimplyGo.

Either way you go, you will have a dependable and tough portable concentrator that has a long lasting battery. The SimplyGo, the versatile pulse dose and continuous flow model, has a battery that can last for up to 4.6 hours at full charge, on a continuous flow setting of 1.

On the pulse dose setting of 2, on both the SimplyGo and the EverGo, you're looking at between 4 and 6 hours of total portability and freedom. If you need to, you will also be able to plug your portable oxygen concentrator into an electrical outlet (house, car, boat, etc.) and charge it as you use it. Just be sure to purchase the proper adapter for your model.

Respirionics Home Oxygen Concentrators

If you need higher dosages oxygen, investing in a home oxygen concentrator is more economical in the long term than using liquid oxygen tanks. You'll never have to get refills, which adds up over time in the financial department. Respirionics's home concentrators are energy efficient, extremely low maintenance and are made run 24/7 if needed.

Respironics Millennium M10 – This heavy duty model can deliver oxygen up to 10 liters per minute (LPM) in 1 liter increments, at a purity of 92%. It's built for safety and can take temperatures as high as 160 degrees Fahrenheit in storage, with an operational temperature of 90 degrees. It is somewhat louder than some other models at 50 decibels, but that's not even as loud as someone's normal voice during a conversation.

Respironics EverFlo – The ultimate space-saver of the home oxygen concentrators, with its sleek design. It stands at 23 inches high and 15 inches wide, and is only 9.5 inches deep and doesn't have any bulging parts that can catch on anything as you move it around on its wheels. If you need a flow rate no higher than 5 LPM or as low as 0.5, this home oxygen concentrator will suit you just fine. It offers an oxygen purity of 93% and is quieter than many home models, at only 40 decibels.
