Portable oxygen concentrator (or POC) is a portable device used to provide oxygen therapy to a patient at substantially higher concentrations than the levels of ambient air. It is very similar to a home oxygen concentrator, but is smaller in size and more mobile. The portable oxygen concentrator makes it easy for patients to travel freely; they are small enough to fit in a car and most of the major concentrators are now FAA-approved.
Most of the portable oxygen concentrator systems available today provide oxygen on a pulse (on-demand) delivery in order to maximise the purity of the oxygen. The system supplies a high concentration of oxygen and is used with a nasal cannula to channel oxygen from the concentrator to the patient.
But what happens if your POC breaks down, stops working or is faulty? This is not just a machine that can be switched off. Patients need continuous supply to stay alive and aid their breathing. This is where OxygenWorldwide step in. As a POC owner if you register you device with our team online or by phone you can be safe in our hands if this occurs whilst travelling abroad.
