Top-Rated Portable Oxygen Concentrator for Travel

The weather is warming up, and it is the perfect time to travel, and we often get asked what the best portable oxygen concentrator is to use when you're traveling or on vacation. That answer may be the Respironics SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator.

The Respironcis SimplyGo only weighs 10 pounds, so it's lightweight, and a unit that you can carry like over your shoulder, but it also comes with a rolling cart.


The SimplyGo also features pulse flow mode and constant flow mode. It has pulse settings from one to six, so if you're out and about and need a little oxygen supplementation, or if you get at high elevation and you need a little boost of oxygen this would be the ideal type machine to use. It also delivers up to 2 LPM (liters per minute) on the continuous flow setting and can provide that constant flow of oxygen at night when you're sleeping.

The SimplyGo comes with a shoulder strap so you can easily that transport the unit, and there is also a rolling cart that the unit can be placed on for longer walks. The unit also includes an accessory bag that can hold all your accessories like extra batteries, cannulas, cords for your wall, cords for your car.

Keep in mind this machine you can plug into your car, so you've got the DC cord that will allow you to do that. Respironics also has an accessory called the travel case that's technically made for the SimplyFlo however, the SimplyFlo and the SimplyGo are basically the same dimensions. The travel case is ideal for you if you are traveling by plane and want a well-padded case.

The SimplyGo is a perfect device for CPAP and BiPAP users because a constant flow device is required to operate a CPAP machine. You can connect the SimplyGo to a CPAP machine with an adapter that will bleed the oxygen into your CPAP machine.
