An oxygen concentrator is a unit used for providing oxygen therapy to patients with respiratory conditions, like emphysema, COPD and asthma. Concentrators are a safer, less expensive and more convenient alternative to compressed tanks of oxygen. They can also be used to provide an economical source of oxygen for industrial processes. There are several different types of oxygen concentrators available for home, hospital or other healthcare facilities. Together, patients and healthcare providers can choose which type is best for the patient’s needs.
The oxygen concentrator is not only used for homecare, but there are also portable concentrators available for those who lead more active lives and need oxygen on the go. Portable oxygen tanks come in extremely small sizes that you can wear on your shoulder or carry in a bag. Portable oxygen concentrators allow patients to live their everyday lives with less limitation, while giving them the freedom they need to not be dragged down by their respiratory issues. Some oxygen concentrators don’t even require liquid units that need to be delivered and refilled on a regular basis; they make their own oxygen on demand. Larger oxygen tanks are for healthcare facilities and homecare use to extricate oxygen at the prescribed dosage based on the patient and their respiratory needs.
