Oxygen Concentrator Flow Rates
Oxygen concentrator flow rates refer to the amount of oxygen delivered to the patient per minute. The flow rate is typically measured in liters per minute (LPM). Oxygen concentrators are available in a range of flow rates, and the appropriate flow rate for an individual patient is determined based on their specific medical needs and oxygen requirements.
Two recommended products with different flow rates are:
- Philips Respironics Everflo Oxygen Concentrator: This is a stationary oxygen concentrator that delivers a flow rate of up to 5 LPM, making it suitable for patients with lower oxygen requirements.
Philips Respironics SimplyGo Mini Portable Oxygen Concentrator: This is a portable oxygen concentrator that delivers a flow rate of up to 2 LPM, making it suitable for patients who require a lower flow of oxygen and need mobility.
