The Respironics SimplyGo mobile concentrator is one of the small wonders of the portable oxygen concentrators. It weighs only 10 lbs and can deliver both pulse dose oxygen, which is the usual for all portable oxygen concentrators, as well as continuous flow. Most of the time, the continuous flow models are bigger and heavier. The SimplyGo can put between 0.5 to 2 LPM (liters per minute) of continuous flow in 0.5 increments, as well as 72 ml/min of pulse dose oxygen.
This small and powerful portable oxygen concentrator is like all others, as far as needing to be serviced and maintenance from time to time. Anything that has that much sophisticated technology, and is important to your health should get the maintenance attention that it needs to continue working at its peak performance.
If you purchase the SimplyGo, you'll get the user manual with instructions on how to care for your concentrator, and you can get advice from us at American Medical, as well. We'll explain it here, in case you weren't sure about the maintenance before making your purchase.
Cleaning Your SimplyGo
Always turn off the SimplyGo and unplug it from a power source before cleaning. To clean the battery bay, remove the battery and wipe away any dust with a dry lint free cloth. You don't want the battery terminal or the battery bay to come in contact with any dampness, or anything metal, both of which can cause damage.
Get a soft cloth damp with a mild detergent and wipe the outside of the cabinet to remove any spots, dust or dirt that has collected on the surface. Wipe it over with a clean damp cloth, and wipe it dry with a dry lint free cloth.
Replacing the Filter
Unlike many other concentrators on the market, the SimplyGo does not have any filters that need to be changed or cleaned on a regular basis. If your SimplyGo is having trouble operating, please contact the dealer you purchased your SimplyGo from to find out if the device is in need of repair.
