It is very apparent that we all need oxygen to survive. However, people who suffer with respiratory conditions, do not have the ability to consume the oxygen that their body needs for survival. This condition can be life threatening if your body does not get an adequate amount of oxygen. Choosing the right oxygen management system, including the oxygen concentrators, regulators, masks and other accessories we have for sale, 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)
The oxygen concentrators for sale at our site takes in the ambient air from the environment, isolate the oxygen, and deliver a concentrated dose of oxygen. They consist of an 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.
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:
