Which portable concentrator is right for me?
We are asked this question a lot. The answer depends on your oxygen requirements and portability needs.
To narrow the choices, we ask the following questions in return:
Can you use a pulse flow of oxygen?
Will you use it during the day, or only occasionally at night?
Do you have lower oxygen needs? Setting 1-4?
Is compact size and light weight important?
Do you need a continuous flow of oxygen?
Will you be using it frequently while sleeping?
Will you be connecting it to a CPAP or BiPAP machine?
Do you require a high-capacity of oxygen? Setting 5 or 6?

 
If you answered YES to these questions, then the best unit for you would be a portable unit that is small and light weight for maximum portability. These units are pulse-flow only so are generally only used during the day; however, your doctor may approve nighttime use as well. If you answered YES to these questions, then the best unit for you would be a portable unit that provides a continuous flow of oxygen for nighttime use, but still provides a pulse flow for daytime use and maximum battery time. For use with a CPAP or BiPAP machine, a continuous flow unit is a MUST.
