Friday, March 2, 2018,3:15 pm
Procuring oxygen for medical use can sometimes be a daunting and worrying task – who do I approach?, what are the options? and which would be best for me? are some of the regular questions posed by a newly diagnosed COPD sufferer. At Pure O2 our trusted team of qualified, friendly and caring staff are on hand to advise you and help you find the best solutions for your personal situation.
Medical oxygen for use on the ward or at home
As an NHS approved supplier, Pure O2 can provide a range of high flow and lightweight medial oxygen concentrators for medical use. Please note that in line with our licence to provide medical oxygen, all purchases and rental agreements must be authorised by a letter from your doctor or medical specialist.
Although you may be thinking ‘why would I be purchasing oxygen unless it was for a medical reason’, you might be surprised to find out that some non-respiratory disease customers use oxygen as a more precautionary measure or just to make them feel better or achieve higher. Whilst there is no scientifically proven results to using oxygen, some people swear they are more alert and energised as result.
Features of oxygen concentrators for medical use
Oxygen concentrators for medical use vary in size, output and functions. Customers select the machine which suits them best depending on a number of factors; whether your priority is to procure a unit which:
- is lightweight
- is portable
- has a ‘night silent’ option
- delivers a pulse flow
- delivers a constant flow
- has a clear and easy flow control
- has a function monitoring performance
- gives maximum high flow
- provides maximum high pressure
- extracts oxygen from the room air, eliminating frequent cylinder deliveries
- is economical/power efficient
- is filter free, eliminating regular maintenance
This may seem like a long list, but many of Pure O2’s units provide solutions to several of these functions all in one case.
