What is an Oxygen Concentrator?

Oxygen concentrator definition: An oxygen concentrator is a type of medical device used for delivering oxygen to individuals with breathing-related disorders.

 Individuals whose oxygen concentration in their blood is lower than normal often require an oxygen concentrator to replace that oxygen.

 

when to use Oxygen concentrator?

Generally, you can’t buy an oxygen concentrator over the counter. A doctor must prescribe it after they’ve completed a thorough medical evaluation. The doctors will also typically show the patients how to effectively use these concentrators while traveling and in their homes.

HOW to clean oxygen concentrator?

Oxygen concentrators filter surrounding air, compressing it to the required density and then delivering purified medical grade oxygen into a pulse-dose delivery system or continuous stream system to the patient.

It’s also equipped with special filters and sieve beds which help remove Nitrogen from the air to ensure delivery of completely purified oxygen to the patient. 

These devices also come with an electronic user interface so you can adjust the levels of oxygen concentration and delivery settings. You then inhale the oxygen through the nasal cannula or special mask.

measure oxygen?

You generally measure the oxygen concentrator output in LPM (liters per minute). Your doctor will determine what level of oxygen you need, which may vary at rest, during sleep, and when you exercise.

    Oxygen Concentrator

    Oxygen Cylinder

    Needs ac supply for operationDoes not need any power supply
    Weight ranges from about 5 to 50 kgWeight ranges up to 50 kg or more
    It has got low oxygen pressure. So, the flow rate is also low compared to an oxygen cylinder. Normally the flow rate ranges from 1 to 10 liters per minIt has got high oxygen pressure. So, the flow rate is also high. Normally, the flow rate can go beyond 10 liters per minute.
    Works for 24 hrs. No need for refillingNeeds to refill the cylinder once it is empty.
    Has got a wheel in it. Thus, it easier to transport from one room to anotherDoes not have a wheel in it. Thus, it is not easy for transportation (Steel-type)
