Stationary & Portable Oxygen Concentrators
Proper oxygen saturation levels are critical for all bodily functions and processes, but many medical conditions could restrict oxygen supply to the bloodstream. Conditions such as sleep apnea, asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, and many others often require oxygen therapy to ensure a patient’s well-being. There are only a few medical devices that could provide it.
High-performance oxygen concentrators are becoming increasingly popular for in-house and hospital use as they’re convenient, effective, and safe. Take a look at ReMED’s oxygen concentrator offer, and find the product that suits your needs best.
How Do Oxygen Concentrators Work
Like any medical device used in oxygen therapy, concentrators work to deliver purified oxygen to a patient’s lungs and bloodstream. However, while they perform the same task as many other devices, they’re unique.
Instead of coming pre-filled with oxygen, concentrators come empty. They rely on the surrounding air to provide therapy, filtering and purifying it before delivering medical-grade oxygen to the patient.
They’re equipped with filters and sieves that remove nitrogen and unwanted pollutants and come with compressors that ensure the required oxygen density. The compressed air first goes through a cooling mechanism that prevents the concentrator from overheating, and it’s then delivered to the patient through a mask or nasal cannula.
The patient can easily adjust the required concentration levels and delivery settings to their desired preferences by using the device’s electronic interface.
The Benefits of Using Oxygen Concentrators
Oxygen concentrators used to be quite hefty and expensive, but they now come in a much more compact size due to technological advances. They can be stationary or portable and have an abundance of benefits to the patients and their caretakers.
Concentrators don’t require refills.
As previously mentioned, oxygen concentrators use the surrounding air to extract oxygen and deliver it to the patients. Due to the way they’re built and how they function, they don’t require any refills. You won’t need to buy oxygen refills or invest in a new concentrator once it runs out.
It can continuously absorb and filter the room’s surrounding air and deliver medical-grade oxygen to any patients in need. Concentrators are easily reusable and easily refillable without any additional investments.
Note: Concentrator filters should be checked and swapped out periodically.
They come in many shapes and sizes.
The main reason why concentrators have become so popular for in-home and hospital use is that they come in many shapes and sizes, making them convenient for any setting.
Since they don’t hold pressurized oxygen, they’re made of lightweight materials and can be easily used on-the-go.
At ReMED, we offer several concentrator sizes from some of the most renowned brands:
- 5L concentrators
- 8L concentrators
- 10L concentrators
Since many oxygen concentrators can be battery-operated, they’re ideal for patients suffering from chronic breathing conditions who need to have oxygen therapy on the go. However, it’s essential to keep an eye on the available charge and ensure that the concentrator has enough power to deliver oxygen supply while not connected to an electrical outlet.
