Oxygen Management

 
 

It is very apparent that we all need oxygen to survive. However, people who suffer with respiratory condition, does not have the ability to consume the oxygen that their body need for survival. This condition can be life threatening if your body does not get an adequate amount of oxygen.

Fortunately, due to medical technology advancement, there are various oxygen therapy systems, oxygen masks for young and adults available on the market to meet the individual’s needs including. Choosing the right oxygen management system may not be easy to do initially, but your doctor or health care provider can assist you in selecting the right oxygen management system suitable for your condition.

Compressed Oxygen Cylinders

Compressed oxygen cylinders are perhaps the most well-known, and possibly the most iconic type of oxygen delivery system. They are the most basic and simple form of oxygen therapy, and also one of the most reliable.

Oxygen Concentrators (Portable and Stationary)

Oxygen concentrators take in the ambient air from the environment, isolate the oxygen, and deliver a concentrated dose of oxygen. They consist of air compressor and zeolite-filled container. The compressor brings the ambient air into the machine. Ambient air is made up of roughly 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen. The zeolite minerals absorb the nitrogen to separate it from the oxygen, resulting in a concentrated dose of up to 95% pure oxygen.

Oxygen concentrators come in many different sizes, and can fit almost any need, including whether that need is at home or on-the-go. Home oxygen concentrators (HOCs) tend to be larger than their more portable counterparts, but they are more efficient in both their oxygen delivery and their energy use. They plug right into a household electrical outlet, and often times come with a set of wheels, allowing them to be transported from one room to another, if needed.

Liquid Oxygen

In extremely cold temperatures (-300°F) oxygen changes from a gas state to a liquid state. In a liquid state, the same amount of oxygen takes up about one tenth of the volume of oxygen than does a gaseous state. Because of the lower volume, large amounts of liquid oxygen can be stored using much less pressure than compressed oxygen in the gaseous phase. Liquid oxygen can be stored and used for oxygen therapy. B&F Medical Supplies carry various Oxygen management products including:
