Oxygen concentrators are less portable than the other options. An oxygen concentrator is a device that takes oxygen from the room, concentrates it for therapeutic use, and removes other naturally occurring gases. The benefits of concentrators are that they are less expensive and don’t require filling like tanks. Portable versions are available. However, most models are too large to be truly portable.
Demand for oxygen therapies had been rising in the last couple of decades as numerous studies have pointed out that patients who undergo oxygen therapy live longer and lead more active lives. Medical Oxygen Concentrators Market has therefore been expanding as oxygen concentrators have come to be increasingly used in not only hospitals and clinics but at homes by patients who require outpatient treatments or patients who wish to travel and continue to lead normal lives with considerable mobility in spite of the need for continuous requirement of oxygen supply.
Oxygen is distributed from the tank through a tube. It enters the lungs through nasal tubes, a face mask, or a tube inserted directly into the person’s windpipe.
