Stationary Oxygen Concentrators

Home oxygen concentrators are considered stationary medical oxygen devices because of their large size and weight. Even though most home oxygen concentrators come equipped with caster wheels, these wheels facilitate moving the concentrator from room to room within the home and are not considered portable outside of the home. For patients who suffer from emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or other related respiratory ailments, an oxygen concentrator is an essential item of home medical equipment.
A home oxygen concentrator is powered by plugging it into a standard electrical outlet in the home. Most home oxygen concentrators offer continuous flow oxygen that is supplied to the respiratory patient without interruption, during both inhale and exhale cycles. Many of these large O2 concentrators can also supply oxygen for up to 50 feet of oxygen tubing, allowing significant mobility to patients within their own home. These devices are electrically powered and supply oxygen made from room air. Because they supply oxygen from room air they never need to be “filled.” They are convenient, safe, and reliable.
