Do you want an oxygen therapy solution that is safe to use while traveling with you in your car?
For many years, COPD sufferers who required long-term oxygen therapy were housebound for all practical purposes. The vast majority of oxygen therapy patients used large cylinders of compressed or liquid oxygen. These systems are not portable and require scheduling of oxygen deliveries which can be a big inconvenience. For portability, those receiving respiratory care could fill small travel cylinders, but they are limited by their small capacity and the need for frequent re-filling.
Risks of driving not only meant calculating your drive time and packing enough oxygen, but also transporting an explosive oxygen cylinder in your vehicle. Heaven forbid you have a fender bender and the tank gets knocked unexpectedly. If you are tired of worrying about the oxygen tanks baking in the sunshine while you drive, continue reading to learn about the latest portable oxygen concentrators.
There were oxygen concentrators available 10-15 years ago, but they didn’t provide much mobility. The units weighed 50 pounds or more and were primarily used as stationary devices. Some employed casters that allow the concentrator to be moved from room to room, but they were not designed for travel purposes.
