Details

Companion Portable Liquid Oxygen (LOX) offers medical oxygen therapy for patients who require continuous oxygen flow. The advantage of Portable Liquid Oxygen over oxygen concentrators is less weight, longer supply, very few parts subject to wear, and higher oxygen flows. Compared with oxygen cylinders or oxygen tanks, the LOX portable oxygen machine generally offers less weight, longer supply, greater mobility, better treatment outcomes and better patient health. The trade-off for these advantages is costs. Oxygen concentrators are the low cost option while LOX remains the best option for patient health. (See the 6-month LOX study Domiciliary liquid oxygen versus concentrator treatment in chronic hypoxaemia: a cost-utility analysis) For patients requiring medical oxygen with continuous flow above 3 LPM, portable oxygen concentrators are unable to meet patient requirements. Portable Liquid Oxygen can offer patients up to 15 LPM of continuous oxygen flow, or fives times the amount of most portable oxygen concentrators.

Companion Portable LOX Liquid Oxygen Components

LOX Components LOX Stationary Components
  • Cryogenic Container: This assembly is a double walled vacuum insulated Dewar for storing liquid oxygen (LOX) at approximately -173°C/-280°F. The inner vessel is designed to safely hold liquid oxygen and is protected from over ressurization by the primary relief valve. Vacuum insulation between the inner and outer vessel keeps outside heat from causing the cold liquid inside to evaporate.
  • Plumbing System: The plumbing system consists of the warming coils, vent valve, PRV, SRV, FCV and QDV (fill connector). It is responsible for filling the unit with liquid oxygen, as well as removing the liquid oxygen from the cryogenic container and warming it to a gas for delivery to the patient.
  • Case Assembly: The C1000/T side covers are molded polycarbonate plastic. When assembled, they form a clam-shell enclosure of the plumbing and cryogenic container.
  • Liquid Content/Level Indicator: The system uses a weight scale system to measure the level of LOX remaining in the cryogenic container. It is activated by suspending the unit by one end of the carrying strap.
  • Lightweight for greater mobility.
  • Small size is less cumbersome.
  • Recessed controls and indicators minimize damage and accidental settings changes.
  • Contents indicator does not require batteries.
