Choosing a portable oxygen concentrator can be tricky because there are a lot of options out there. So best way to begin is by narrowing down your options based on a few components we will discuss in this article.
Based on whether you need pulse dose, continuous dose, or both and the flow rate you need, you will be able to narrow down your options.
After you have a list of concentrators that will meet your oxygen requirements, you can continue narrowing down your option based on the unit’s weight, battery life, noise level, and sleep mode technology.
These priorities are based on your lifestyle and the qualities of life you value most.
You can start by asking yourself some questions:
Do I need a unit that is lightweight so that I can carry it easier while running errands?
Do I need a light weight unit so that I can start exercising more often?
Do I need a unit with long lasting battery life because I travel a lot?
Do I need a unit with long lasting battery life because I like to be outside without a power source for long periods of time?
Do I need a quiet unit because I am very sensitive to noise?
Do I need sleep mode technology because I already have trouble sleeping?
Once you have determined the list of units that meet your oxygen needs and have an idea of which lifestyle choices you prioritize, you should have a pretty great idea of which portable oxygen concentrator is best for you!
