Regular oxygen therapy patients usually amass quite a collection of paraphernalia related to their oxygen needs, both at home and when away. Numerous and various sized oxygen cylinder tanks come regularly on delivery trucks and are stored in the house and car trunk. The oxygen cylinder is inconvenient logistically, expensive and pretty much just a pain all around. New technologies, however, have now made the requirements of stocking different oxygen cylinder sizes nonexistent. How about an oxygen delivery system that is small, portable and uses no cylinders at all? This is what Inogen delivers with its unique Inogen One Oxygen Concentrator.
No More Bottles, No More Troubles.
Being on oxygen is no picnic and, speaking of picnics, how often has someone needing oxygen assistance had to forgo the pleasures of something as simple as an afternoon family outing because there were no extra oxygen cylinder tanks on hand and they were afraid of running out of air? So, instead, they sit in the house, tethered to their in-home oxygen delivery system, regretting all the things they used to enjoy that now seem too inconvenient to pursue. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be like that. Inogen has the answer. Oxygen cylinder sizes run from small to large, depending on whether they are used as a stationary unit such as those found in the home (large cylinder) or as portable oxygen cylinder systems (small cylinder). Each has a regulator that shows the amount of O2 remaining and, when empty,must be replaced with a freshly filled cylinder. The Inogen unit is revolutionary and different from a normal medical oxygen cylinder, as it makes its own oxygen on the spot, with no need for tanks, regulators or any of the other inconveniences associated with this antiquated type of oxygen delivery.
