How to Choose a Home Oxygen Concentrator?
How to choose a home oxygen concentrator? Six key points should not be ignored
Oxygen is of great significance to the human body. Like food and water, it is an important energy source for sustaining life.
With the continuous improvement and improvement of people's economic and living standards, the demand for health has gradually increased, and more and more people are also actively purchasing oxygen concentrators for home oxygen therapy or health care.
However, how to buy a safe and reliable home oxygen concentrator? Don't worry, today we will talk about how to avoid pits and choose a suitable and easy-to-use oxygen concentrator.
Key point 1: Types of oxygen concentrators
From a functional point of view, oxygen concentrators are divided into two types: health care and medical.
Health care oxygen concentrators are generally suitable for mental workers (such as students, white-collar workers), pregnant women, and normal elderly.
Medical oxygen concentrators are generally suitable for people with pathological oxygen intake (including patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, patients with respiratory system diseases, diabetic patients, etc.). Of course, medical oxygen concentrators also have health care functions.
Key point 2: Oxygen concentration of oxygen concentrator
The oxygen concentration of the oxygen concentrator refers to the size of the oxygen content. In layman's terms, it is the purity of the oxygen output from the oxygen concentrator. Different oxygen concentrators have different oxygen concentrations.
In order to ensure that the machine has a long service life and has a therapeutic effect, it is recommended to choose an oxygen concentrator with an oxygen concentration of more than 90%.
Key point 3: Oxygen flow of oxygen concentrator
Many people do not know what the 1L oxygen concentrator, 3L oxygen concentrator and 5L oxygen concentrator mean. In fact, it is the maximum oxygen flow per minute that the oxygen concentrator can provide under the premise of ensuring the oxygen concentration.
Take a 5L machine with an oxygen concentration of 90% as an example: when the oxygen flow is controlled at any flow rate within 5L/min, the oxygen concentration will be greater than 90%, and if the oxygen flow exceeds 5L/min, the oxygen concentration will not be greater than 90%.
The choice of oxygen flow rate during oxygen inhalation generally depends on the degree of hypoxia and the underlying disease of the oxygen inhaler. For daily health care, you usually choose a 1-2L machine. Patients who need an oxygen concentrator for auxiliary treatment are advised to follow the doctor's advice and do not blindly buy it by themselves.
Key point 4: The noise level of the oxygen concentrator
It is recommended that consumers choose an oxygen concentrator with noise reduction function and the noise is lower than 45-48 decibels, otherwise, it may affect the rest of individuals or others.
For people with long-term insomnia, anxiety and high requirements for sleep quality, an oxygen concentrator with lower noise can be used, and the selection should be made according to individual needs.
Key point 5: The atomization function of the oxygen concentrator
Especially patients with respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma, not only need oxygen to improve lung function, but also need atomization inhalation treatment at home, so you can consider choosing an oxygen concentrator with atomization function when purchasing a machine.
This not only makes home treatment more convenient, but also saves the time of repeated trips to the hospital and queues, and reduces the cost of medical treatment.
Key point 6: Brand manufacturers of oxygen concentrators
At present, there are many varieties of oxygen concentrators on the market, and the quality is also uneven. Therefore, it is recommended to choose an oxygen concentrator manufacturer or brand with strong strength, good reputation and quality assurance when purchasing an oxygen concentrator.
It is best to have relevant qualifications such as US FDA certification, EU CE certification, etc., so that it will be more secure in product use and after-sales.
