Portable Oxygen Concentrator Devices Give Patients their Mobility

A portable oxygen concentrator is a necessity for anyone who is diagnosed with a respiratory illness and wants to travel. Many people stay at home if they need supplemental oxygen therapy, but they actually don't need to. Small portable systems marketed by Mobility Sales can help people to stay mobile without sacrificing their necessary supplies of oxygen.

One of the biggest concerns that people have when using portable oxygen is reliability. These machines are rated for an extremely long battery life, which is extremely important for anyone traveling. In some cases it might not be possible to get to a supply of electricity, so it can be good to have a battery that won't give out.

Weight is another concern. The Inogen One G3 recently entered the market and assuaged these concerns. At only 4.8 lbs, it's one of the lightest oxygen concentrator units currently on the market. It can still provide high levels of oxygen, however. This makes it attractive to those who might need to access setting 4 on their machines, and don't want to have to lug around a heavy unit to do that.

Those concerned about flying should check to make sure that their units are approved. Individuals who don't have containers that they can fly with might be able to rent one.
