Oxygen Concentrators 101
There are two types of oxygen concentrators – portable and stationary.
Portable oxygen concentrators are alternatives to compressed oxygen tanks. They are ideal for patients who wish to retain an active lifestyle and enjoy life on the go while requiring oxygen therapy. Portable concentrators run off of batteries that are rechargeable off of either AC or DC power. Furthermore, as long as the portable machine has a source of power (AC, DC, or battery) the unit will continue to produce medical grade oxygen.
