Who Needs A Portable Oxygen Concentrator?

A portable oxygen concentrator is a good solution for anyone struggling with low blood oxygen levels.

Portable concentrators are particularly well suited to seniors who still want to go out and about and get the most from life. It used to be that oxygen therapy meant using a heavy, bulky oxygen cylinder. They were hard to move, and changing the cylinder was a hassle. There was also a fire risk associated with using them.

Thanks to today’s great portable oxygen concentrators, getting extra oxygen is much simpler and easier than it was before. A portable concentrator can travel with you, as it’s small and light enough to travel easily in its own carrying case. Many models are even suitable for air travel.

Seniors who stay mostly around the home can also benefit from a portable model, as they’re much easier to transport from room to room or take with you when getting up to go to the bathroom.

How Do Portable Oxygen Concentrators Work?

Portable oxygen concentrators pull in air and move it to an inlet filter into a compressor. The compressor then compresses the air, and pushes it to a part called a sieve bed. This saturates the sieve bed with oxygen, so the air that exits the machine is very oxygen-rich (about 95% oxygen, as opposed to the usual 21% oxygen of the air we breathe every day.)

The oxygen is then delivered to the user via a nasal cannula or a face mask. You simply connect the cannula to the machine, choose your settings, and switch the machine on.

What Should You Know About Purchasing A Portable Oxygen Concentrator?

Before purchasing a portable oxygen concentrator, it’s important to understand you or your loved one’s oxygen needs in terms of how many liters per minute (LPM) are required. It’s important not to guess this number – ask your primary care physician, or specialist, to give you an exact number to use.

It’s also important to know whether you need a pulse or continuous flow machine. Pulse flow machines release a puff of oxygen whenever the user breathes in. They’re best suited to more active seniors who need a little extra breathing support. Pulse flow machines support up to 2 LPM of flow. Continuous flow machines deliver a steady stream of oxygen and support up to 5 LPM of flow. Continuous flow models work with BiPAP machines, so they’re the only option for users who wear a BiPAP. They’re also the best option for those who need oxygen overnight.

Some concentrators have both pulse and continuous settings, so you can choose between them.

Hello I currently have an In oven one portable one but to me it is heavy!!! They say it weighs only 3 lbs. But that must be without the battery. I can’t walk remarks carrying anything so I have hard time walking with it .Was looking at yours cause it is more compact and not as bulky. How much does it weigh with the battery installed?
Any response will be greatly appreciated

Thanks for explaining how portable concentrators make it easier and simpler for people to get extra oxygen since they’re small and light enough to travel easily with. I imagine if you were to go on hiking in mountainous areas, it would be best to have oxygen concentrators ready to use for altitude sickness. I’ll be sure to rent concentrators if I ever think of hiking in the future.
