The Inogen Portable Oxygen Concentrators

A portable oxygen concentrator is a device that utilises ambient air to concentrate it and remove the nitrogen content to deliver the purified oxygen to you directly. Inogen is one of the world’s best brands of oxygen solutions manufacturers. The Inogen portable oxygen concentrators have offered freedom and peace of mind to many patients who are receiving oxygen therapy and due to its easy to carry and compact nature that does not come with the cumbersome refills or oxygen tanks, you are able to use it just about anywhere, whether you are at home or on-the-go.

The Inogen Portable Oxygen Concentrators are ideal as they pose as a single oxygen solution device that can be used in any location, even on an airline when you travel (45 major airlines allow this reputable brand’s portable oxygen concentrators onboard) making airline travel easier for COPD patients and those who require a little assistance with breathing.

Intelligent Delivery technology, a moniker for Pulse Dose oxygen delivery essentially means that the oxygen is delivered in a pulse dose also known as a bolus each time you breathe in. What the Inogen Portable Concentrators does is that when your respiratory rate or your breathing pattern changes, the machine will actively align itself to accommodate it so that you make the best and the most of your oxygen therapy. When your breathing rate increases, the bolus sizes are reduced to avoid oxygen wastage (on expiration) whereas when your breathing rate decreases such as when you are sleeping, the machine will react accordingly to increase the bolus size for the longer intake of breath (inspiration).
