Portable oxygen concentrators are used to deliver oxygen therapy to the patients. The oxygen that is provided by portable oxygen concentrators has higher level of concentration than ambient air. Portable oxygen concentrators have been used globally for decades now. The older versions of the portable oxygen concentrators were considered to be unreliable and difficult to use as they were bulky and costly. Over the years, portable oxygen concentrators have been evolved, as manufacturers are improving the design of them and by manufacturing them with a relatively smaller size & higher mobility. As the new generation portable oxygen concentrators have become more mobile, the patients are able carry them more freely as they can be accommodated in a car.
As distributors prefer distributing the most mobile and light weight portable oxygen concentrators, original equipment manufacturers of portable oxygen concentrators are in a race to advance the products technically and mechanically.
There are two types of the oxygen delivery systems, continuous flow and pulse dose. Pulse dose is widely used in the portable oxygen concentrators as they provide light weight and long battery life.
Portable oxygen concentrators provide advantages to the patients such as increased mobility, 24/7 access to the oxygen, which enhances their chance of survival, helps to increase the stamina and freedom of travelling with light weight.
The global portable oxygen concentrators market is primarily driven by the growing demand for lightweight and mobile oxygen supply for patients. Across the globe, the demand for portable oxygen concentrators are preferred because of their mobility and long battery life.
