The Best Portable Oxygen Concentrators for Active People

The Best Portable Oxygen Concentrators for Active People

If you need a portable oxygen concentrator and enjoy traveling, being active, exercising frequently, or have to run errands often, we've got you covered.

If you need supplemental oxygen and enjoy traveling, being active, exercising frequently, or have to run errands often, Liberty Medical’s got you covered. On our POC blog you can find information on each individual portable oxygen concentrator we offer, but we’ve compiled this comparative list to make learning about them as easy as possible for you!

Portable oxygen concentrators are mobile devices that supply the patient with oxygen therapy by delivering it through a nasal cannula. The oxygen does not need to be refilled because concentrators take in the surrounding air, filter out the nitrogen, and deliver oxygen directly to you. These devices are set to deliver a pulse flow of oxygen whenever a breath is detected. A few POC’s on the market combine pulse flow and continuous flow in one concentrator.

This form of oxygen therapy is perfect for active people because the concentrator often looks like a normal, discrete carrying bag that can go anywhere with you, even on planes! Each of our portable oxygen concentrators are approved by the FAA, so you don’t have to worry about it being an issue when you travel. Going for a run? Most portable oxygen concentrators with pulse mode have a built-in oxygen conserver that stores excess oxygen. This makes it easy for the device to detect when your breathing rate increases during exercise so that it can deliver enough oxygen during your activity.

But how do you know you’re getting the best oxygen concentrator for your specific needs? Take a look at the different features, settings, and benefits of each of our portable oxygen concentrators so you can find the perfect fit.
