Today, you can choose from at-home stationary concentrators and portable oxygen concentrators (POCs), which can go wherever you go easily.

What is an Oxygen Concentrator?

As per a very simple definition, as provided by Wikipedia,

"An oxygen concentrator takes in air and removes nitrogen from it, leaving an oxygen enriched gas for use by people requiring medical oxygen due to low oxygen levels in their blood"

In general Oxygen Concentrators is a type of Medical Device that helps in delivering oxygen to patients with respiratory disorders, for example, Asthma, breathing problems coming with climate change, COPD, Pneumonia, etc. On the other hand, people with low oxygen concentration in their bloodstream require assistance to manage breathing through Oxygen Concentrators.

There was a time when the only available source for patients having breathing problems was through the bulky oxygen tanks. However, these too being very effective, the only problem was the regular visit of the suppliers to replenish the oxygen tanks regularly.

One should remember that these are not available for over the counter purchases. Get a doctor's prescription for easy buy. A doctor must prescribe it after they’ve completed a thorough medical evaluation. Further, the doctor gives all the direction for its effective usage.

What are the Uses and Reasons for an Oxygen Concentrator?

There are many reasons for an oxygen concentrator and doctors can recommend oxygen support to their patients for various medical conditions. Typically, your lungs absorb the air’s oxygen, transferring it into your bloodstream.

If you’ve had bloodwork or pulse oximetry recently performed to assess your oxygen saturation levels, and you were found to have low levels of blood oxygen, your doctor may recommend short-term or long-term oxygen therapy.

You’re probably wondering what is an oxygen concentrator used for? Acute conditions usually require short-term oxygen therapy. These conditions normally run for a short period of time. They may have a sudden onset of symptoms versus chronic conditions where things occur gradually. However, some respiratory or chronic conditions require long-term oxygen supplementation.

Acute Conditions Requiring an Oxygen Concentrator

A few examples of acute conditions where you would need the use of an oxygen concentrator for short-term oxygen therapy are:

Asthma:

This condition is where your airways become inflamed and begin producing a lot of mucus, which makes it harder to breathe. While there are a number of pharmaceuticals that can treat and control asthma, an oxygen concentrator can pump high levels of oxygen into the bloodstream of the patient while they’re having or have already had an asthma attack.

Pneumonia:

Pneumonia is an infection where you develop inflammation in either one or both of your lungs’ air sacs and in many cases, fill them up with fluid. Many pneumonia patients have been prescribed oxygen therapy and have seen good clinical outcomes.

Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS):

RDS is a breathing disorder mostly affecting new-borns, particularly those who are born six or more weeks before their delivery date. New-borns suffering from RDS don’t create enough surfactant (a lung coating liquid), causing their lungs to collapse and making them work harder to breathe. Oxygen therapy using oxygen concentrators help pump oxygen into the babies’ bloodstream and lungs to reduce further complications.

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD):

New-borns suffering from RDS also have a higher risk of developing BPD. This is a severe lung condition requiring long-term breathing support.

In some cases, after surgery, you may need oxygen for a short period of time.

Chronic Diseases that Require Oxygen Therapy

Some chronic conditions requiring long-term oxygen concentrator uses are:

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD):

COPD affects around 16 million people, but an oxygen concentrator can be an effective treatment. When you have COPD, you have chronic lung damage which makes it difficult for your lungs to absorb enough oxygen. As a result, you can have difficulty breathing, and oxygen therapy through a concentrator can help.

Cystic fibrosis:

You inherit this life-threatening condition. It causes digestive system and lung damage. It’s a rare condition that affects the body’s cells responsible for producing mucus, sweat and digestive juices. The fluids are changed which result in a stickier, thicker solution that plugs the ducts, tubes, and passageways of the individual infected.

Sleep Apnea:

Sleep Apnea is a sleeping disorder that can be serious and cause the individual’s breathing to sporadically stop and start during their sleep. Usually, treatment for this condition is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), weight loss and physical exercise, though some people with sleep apnoea may require oxygen therapy.

How Does an Oxygen Concentrator Work?

Just like a window AC, an oxygen concentrator takes in the surrounding air. It then compresses the air and eliminates Nitrogen in the process of purification. This is done with the help of sieve beds and special filters.

Oxygen concentrators filter surrounding air, compressing it to the required density and then delivering purified medical grade oxygen into a pulse-dose delivery system or continuous stream system to the patient.

The pulse dose mode is usually used for daytime use, as it delivers air via the cannula when you inhale. Concentrators with pulse dose technology also are more compact in design and offer a longer battery life. On the other hand, the continuous flow mode delivers a constant air flow via the tubes. For people who need oxygen while they sleep, this mode is the best option.

The purified 93% concentrated oxygen is then delivered to the patient through an oxygen mask or nasal cannula.

You generally measure the oxygen concentrator output in LPM (litres per minute). Your doctor will determine what level of oxygen you need, which may vary at rest, during sleep, and when you exercise.

The process is as under:

  1. Compressing air as the cooling mechanism keeps the concentrator from becoming overheated

  2. Taking air in from its surroundings

  3. Using an electronic interface to adjust delivery settings

  4. Removing nitrogen from the air through sieve beds and a filter

  5. Delivering purified oxygen through a mask or nasal cannula

Benefits of Using an Oxygen Concentrator

Both portable and home oxygen concentrators have numerous advantages for those patients needing oxygen therapy. They are much less dangerous than traditional oxygen cylinders, which can, if ruptured or leaking, cause or increase the combustion rate of fire. Oxygen concentrators, on the other hand, pose no such danger. Home and portable oxygen concentrators that can "make" their own oxygen have become more popular and widely used than old-fashioned oxygen tanks.

The other main benefit is the ease and increased ability to be mobile with oxygen. Portable oxygen concentrators provide the necessary oxygen anywhere the user goes, even on aero planes.

Using an Oxygen Concentrators can provide with certain benefits of:

  • Cost-effectiveness

  • Does not require refilling

  • Easy to operate

  • Portable, thus can be moved easily

  • Non-invasive, therefore it is not at all painful

  • Provides up to 93% Concentrated Oxygen, hence promote easy breathing

What Key Features to check before buying Oxygen Concentrator?

1.Capacity in Litre : 5 Litre to 100 Litre

2.Oxygen Flow : Per minute output - variable - 0.5 L to 5 L - typical defined by capacity and adjustable as per need of the patient. Important parameter. ​

3.Nebulizer : Typical add-on for the patients having breathing issues - is a big plus (its optional for few models and comes as a standard with few models) ​

4.Oxygen concentration output : Very important to have 90% or more. Do check! ​

5.Battery Backup : For those times, when suddenly power goes Or when patients need to be transported. It is not a standard feature as yet, but a big plus for those models which have it. It’s a Big plus for peace of mind. Typical backup provided is 1 hour, good enough for most cases. ​

6.Portability : As the name suggests, the ability to easily move and take from one room to another makes Oxygen concentrator Portable. Whether you are buying it out or renting out, its one feature you should weigh upon when making a choice. This typically is achieved by weight considerations and / or by having wheels in the oxygen concentrator. ​

7.Touch Panel : Ease of operation is achieved by ​providing ease to use display panel, having touch-based operations.

8.Noise Level : Those in suffering, are a bit more restless and most sounds irritate them. Having an Oxygen concentrator in the room, for sure would have a Noise Level (it's constantly sucking in air and concentrating it, pumping into the output valve). Do check upon a good acceptable level Noise level 45 dB or so is acceptable. Most models are in the range of 50 dB (Higher the dB level, higher the Noise) ​

9.Warranty : It’s very important point from the total cost of ownership point of view. You must insist and get clarity on Oxygen concentrator Warranty to be at least 2 to 3 years.

How to Use an Oxygen Concentrator

 If you don’t know how to use an oxygen concentrator yet, you may think it’s difficult. However, the process is so simple that anyone can do it. You just need to set up the machine properly, turn it on, and adjust it to the prescribed flow rate before putting on your mask or nasal cannula. 

There are just a few things to keep in mind. Remember to:

  • The oxygen concentrator must be a foot or two away from furniture

  • Start the machine 15 to 20 minutes prior to the use so that it can distribute an accurate concentration of air

  • Smooth out any bends in the tubing before beginning the treatment

  • If you want low levels of oxygen, you can use the mask. However, for high levels, insert the nasal cannula.
