Whisper Quiet Oxygen Concentrators – The Quietest on the Market Today

When you're receiving your oxygen therapy, you don't want to be bothered by the noises coming from your machine. It might already feel like a nuisance to have to use oxygen therapy, and you'd rather not draw attention to yourself with the hisses and puffs emitted by your oxygen machine. If your oxygen concentrator is so noisy that it's becoming a nuisance, it might be time to upgrade to a newer, quieter model.

Swift advancements in medical technology have allowed for newer, more modern oxygen concentrators to deliver as much or more oxygen than the older ones, but now, they are much smaller and quieter. You can count on going shopping for a newer oxygen concentrator, and being pleasantly surprised with how small, light and quiet they are.

Some oxygen concentrators are known to be the quietest among the quiet. You can compare the noise level to a normal conversation, and the hush of a library. While the noise levels of these oxygen concentrators are measured in decibels, you can imagine how quiet they are by thinking about these descriptions!

Here are some of the quietest oxygen concentrators.

The Respironics SimplyGo

This portable oxygen concentrator is quiet and powerful, with the ability to deliver both pulse dose oxygen and continuous flow oxygen settings. The continuous-flow settings go up to 2 LPM, and the noise level is still only 43 decibels. It's no louder than the hum of your refrigerator. It's barely noticeable, and you grow accustomed to it quickly so that you don't even notice it.

The Sequal Equinox

The eQuniox is one of the newest portable models on the market, and it's incredibly quiet. It only gets as loud as 37 decibels, and it can deliver as much as 3 LPM of continuous-flow oxygen. It also offers pulse dose settings, ranging from 1 to 6. The eQuinox a perfect example of a powerful new portable concentrator that is more sophisticated and much more pleasurable to use.

The Invacare Perfecto 2

The Perfecto 2 can deliver between 0.5 and 5 LPM (in 0.5 increments) of oxygen, and is no louder than 43 decibels! Such a quiet machine is incredible for how powerful it is, which makes it a favorite among those who need from 3 to 5 LPM of continuous-flow oxygen. It's also pretty small and lightweight, at less than 2 feet tall and 43 lbs it is perfect for nighttime use, or use around the house.

The AirSep Visionaire 5

This stationary oxygen concentrator is much like the Perfecto 2, but it has continuous flow settings ranging from 1 to 5, and the noise is only as loud as 40 decibels. It's also shorter and over 10 lbs lighter than the Perfecto 2, but it doesn't supply half LPM increments. This is another stationary oxygen concentrator that is perfect for use overnight, especially with how quiet it is.
