Portable Oxygen Concentrator
Portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) are one of the best ways to get your oxygen supply on the go. They work by removing nitrogen from the air and compressing it into a supply of pure oxygen. POCs are used to help people with chronic respiratory conditions breathe more comfortably, including those suffering from COPD, emphysema or asthma. They’re compact, lightweight devices which can be transported easily in a backpack or handbag as you go about your day-to-day life – even when you’re also using an ambulation aid or wheelchair!
Portable oxygen concentrators work by taking air in and removing the nitrogen out of it.
Portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) work by taking air in and removing the nitrogen out of it. This leaves you with just the oxygen, which is then filtered and pumped into your lungs via a nasal cannula or mask.
How does it differ from a regular oxygen machine? A POC can be carried around with you, so it's much more convenient for travel than traditional tanks. They also tend to be smaller and lighter than other types of equipment. The amount of time they last on a full tank varies depending on what model you buy; some will last 4-5 hours while others run 8-12 hours before needing more power! Some models even allow users to plug their own USB cord into their phone or tablet so they have unlimited battery life while using their device!
POCs are quiet and lightweight, making them easy to transport
The POC is quiet and lightweight, making it easy to transport, even with other medical devices such as an ambulation aid or wheelchair. The POC can be used in many different settings: at home, while traveling and even during outdoor activities such as camping or hiking.
The best thing about POCs is that they're easy to use. They don't require a lot of maintenance and can be used anywhere, even if you have no electricity or running water. They are lightweight and portable, so they can be taken with you anywhere without being too much of a burden on yourself or others around you.
