For those that rely on oxygen to help them get through the day, lugging around an oxygen tank on wheels can get tiresome and pose various challenges. It makes simple things like walking from one room to another, getting in and out of the car or going to a doctor’s appointment more difficult than it has to be. With a portable oxygen concentrator, however, these and other daily tasks can be as easy for you as they are for everyone else.
Oxygen concentrators come in models for home and portable use. They provide purified oxygen taken from the air surrounding the unit. Portable oxygen concentrators allow for extended use while you are away from your home without having to worry about how much oxygen you have left.
They are also lightweight, with most models weighing between 8-12 lbs., or about as much as a gallon of milk. Even if you cannot handle that weight, a lot of models of portable oxygen concentrators have shoulder bags that can help you transport them.
Portable oxygen concentrators are also designed to be very quiet since you will be using them a lot in public. Most people around you probably will not be able to tell if your device is even on! Perhaps the best part about portable oxygen concentrators is that they have begun to be approved for in-flight use by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). There are a certain number of models that are currently approved.
