  • Comparisons of the Home Oxygen Concentrators

    Home oxygen concentrators are for home use because they can only be plugged into an AC outlet. They're also usually larger than portable concentrators, so you wouldn't want to have to transport them around, anyway. Even so, stationary oxygen units are still necessary and make the lives of oxygen therapy users easier.

    If you only need to use oxygen therapy a few hours out of the day, a stationary model might be a better decision, because portable models can be much more pricey. You might only need to use it overnight, and you don't plan on doing a lot of traveling to other places where you would be staying overnight. If you would generally only be using your oxygen therapy while you're at home anyway, a stationary oxygen concentrator is a way to go.

  • How Does a Home Oxygen Concentrator Work?

    People who need constant oxygen are often prescribed with an oxygen concentrator, sometimes called an oxygen generator. There are two types of oxygen concentrators: home and portable. Home devices are designed to move from room-to-room throughout the house and plug into a wall outlet. They can even be moved outdoors, but require an electricity source to operate.The Process of How Oxygen Concentrators Work

    Regardless of whether or not they are home or portable, all oxygen concentrators work primarily the same way. Simply put, the device takes air from the environment, purifies it, and distributes air with the highest dose of oxygen possible to the user, via a nasal cannula or mask.

  • 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.

  • Why You Should Purchase an Oxygen Concentrator Package

    Let's say, you've bought your first oxygen concentrator and you're very happy with the product. That's great! After a while of using it, you start to realize how much easier it would be to have at least one extra battery, and an external battery charger.

    When you purchase a portable oxygen concentrator from us, you also get one or two batteries (if it comes with batteries you can remove and replace and depending on each model), a nasal cannula and rubber tubing, a carry bag and/or cart, a replacement filter (depending on the model), a manual and AC/DC adapters. These are all things you will need when you first start out.
