Home Oxygen Concentrators
Selecting a Home Oxygen Concentrator for your medical needs should incorporate matching the oxygen requirements specified by your doctor to the capability of the oxygen machine. Prescriptions from medical doctors often specify a certain amount of oxygen the patient is required to remain healthy. These prescriptions often are written in terms of liters per minute of oxygen flow or LPM. If your prescription does not indicate a specified amount of oxygen in liters per minute, then a less expensive 5 Liter unit should be adequate for your needs. If however, your prescription calls for 8 or 10 LPM, then you should select between one of the larger units that have a greater capacity for oxygen production and flow.

Oxygen Machine for Home Use are stationary units that are used for oxygen therapy at home. Even though most units come equipped with caster wheels, these wheels facilitate moving the unit from room to room within the home and are not considered portable outside of the home. Because of their large size and weight, they are often referred to as Stationary Oxygen Concentrators. For patients who suffer from emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or other related respiratory ailments, an air concentrator is an essential item of home medical equipment. Many patients’ lives depend upon the support of their machine to meet their needs. Most units offer continuous flow oxygen that is supplied to the respiratory patient without interruption, during both inhale and exhale cycles. Portable Oxygen Concentrators on the other hand, mostly use pulse flow oxygen rather than continuous oxygen because of their small size. Pulse dose is not continuous oxygen because it provides a puff of oxygen only during the inhale cycle. Oxygen machines for home use are usually much larger than portable units and offer more oxygen flow. Many of these large units can also supply oxygen for up to 50 feet of tubing, allowing significant mobility to patients within their own home.
These units provide 2 to 10 LPM of continuous oxygen flow. Patients can regulate the amount of O2 flow by a selector on the control panel on the unit. Since altitude can degrade the amount of O2 that is being delivered to the patient, many manufacturers provide the option of adding an O2 sensor to determine the actual output of oxygen being delivered to the patient.
