Who Should Use a Portable Oxygen Concentrator?
Portable oxygen concentrators are required for individuals with conditions that cause their oxygen levels to drop too low. Such conditions include asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and sleep apnea.
However, remember that oxygen concentrators serve a different purpose than CPAP machines, which are designed to specifically treat sleep apnea.
In addition, to ensure these devices are safe and helpful for your health and wellbeing, it is imperative to consult a healthcare professional before using a portable oxygen concentrator.
How Long Can You Use a Portable Oxygen Concentrator?
Majority of Portable Oxygen Concentrator's rely on Lithium Batteries to operate. Depending on the brand and device settings, a single battery can last up to 4 hours before it needs to be recharged. Multiple batteries can be used to extend the run time. For more information, refer to the manufacturer's user guide for battery duration.
A Pulse Dose setting will significantly prolong a battery's run time compared to a Continuous Flow Setting. A Pulse dose will deliver the prescribed amount of oxygen (such as 2L/min) upon inhale; this not only preserves battery power, but it does not continue to release oxygen while you are exhaling. It is newer, advanced technology that is automatically triggered by your breath. Pulse dose is not suitable for everyone, we recommend you consult your doctor to see if it is right for you.
With adequate care, portable oxygen concentrators can last up to 5+ years with minimal maintenance or repairs. The usage and overall durability of these lightweight portable oxygen concentrators make them a worthwhile investment that can contribute significantly to an individual's health without disrupting their active lifestyles.
