Home Oxygen Concentrators
Selecting a Home Oxygen Concentrator for your medical needs should incorporate matching the oxygen requirements specified by your doctor to the capability of the oxygen machine. Prescriptions from medical doctors often specify a certain amount of oxygen the patient is required to receive in order to remain healthy. These prescriptions often are written in terms of liters per minute of oxygen flow or LPM. If your prescription does not indicate a specified amount of oxygen in liters per minute, then a less expensive 5 Liter Concentrator should be adequate for your needs. If however, you prescription calls for 8 or 10 LPM, then you should select between one of the larger concentrators that have a greater capacity for oxygen production and flow.
