Whether you need a portable oxygen concentrator for your outdoor and travel needs or a stationary in-house oxygen concentrator, GM-Medical got you covered.
Let us help you or your loved ones live a product life throughout oxygen therapy needs.
Portable oxygen concentrators are only used for one reason. To provide supplemental oxygen to chronically ill patients requiring more than room air for survival.
Patients who may require oxygen concentrators include patients with.
Here are some of the major benefits of using portable or stationary oxygen concentrators:
Medical research has shown that supplemental oxygen to chronically ill patients for at least 15 hours a day increases survival in most conditions. This means oxygen concentrators decreases the rate of death (Mortality rate) (1).
Studies show that using supplemental oxygen during exercise allows you to exercise longer, at a higher intensity, which means you’ll reap greater rewards for all your efforts.
Acute and chronically ill patients can tolerate exercise better and longer under supplemental oxygen, reducing recovery time and enhancing physical therapy.
Chronically ill patients and the elderly may appear confused or slow to respond. Oxygen supplementation may increase alertness and mental clarity to such patients.
Patients with sleep apnea or nocturnal desaturation benefit tremendously from using oxygen concentrators. When you have COPD or another chronic lung disease, transient nocturnal desaturation may interfere with a restful night’s sleep. This can lead to a myriad of multiple health diseases, including heart diseases.
Oxygen tanks can run dry. Power outages may render stationary oxygen concentrators useless. Having a portable battery powered oxygen concentrator could be the difference between life and survival. It is the single most important reason why you should consider having a portable oxygen concentrator with the battery fully charged at all times.
Portable oxygen concentrators are super easy to use for anyone. No wires or multiple buttons to worry about. Simply connect the nasal cannula, turn it on and dial the oxygen level and enjoy clean oxygen which is 95% pure.
Unline heavy oxygen tanks, with a portable oxygen concentrator, you can be outdoors interacting with friends and the environment. There is nothing depressing than being detained inside the house without the ability to move around.
Patient recovery after a long or chronic illness has a lot to do with the ability to move around outdoors.
Stationary oxygen concentrators can be wheeled around the house by the patient or with the help of a caregiver. Here are the benefits of a stationary oxygen concentrator.
Unlike portable oxygen concentrators, stationary oxygen concentrators are relatively cheaper. This means a good majority of patients needing oxygen therapy can afford them.
Stationary oxygen concentrators may be able to produce up to 10L/Minute 95% medical grade oxygen. That is a lot of oxygen. However, most patients do not require more than 4L/Minutes. Majority of patients requiring more than 5L/Minute may require to remain in an in-patient healthcare facility.
Oxygen can cause nasal drying and in some cases, cracking and bleeding. Stationary oxygen concentrators come with a water reservoir for air humidification.
Some oxygen concentrators come with double outlets making them perfect for sharing, especially in a hospital or a nursing home settings. This means this type of oxygen concentrator can be set between two beds of patients requiring oxygen therapy
