A portable oxygen machine is a medical device that compresses the surrounding air and gives it to patients in a purer and more concentrated form. Best of all, as long as the oxygen generator is plugged into a power outlet or has a battery, the oxygen supply is continuous.

It is very helpful for the elderly who have low oxygen content in the blood for whatever reason. This is because portable oxygen concentrators are lighter and easier to use than standard oxygen tanks. This provides a solution for those who need it outside the home and those who travel.

When people get older, there are many reasons why they need oxygen therapy. Some of these conditions include recovery after surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, sleep apnea, and even anemia can cause hypoxia. A simple way to increase the oxygen content in the blood is to have a portable oxygen concentrator. Its role is because they suck in the surrounding air, compress the air, and then filter out the nitrogen with a sieve bed, and then leave 90% pure oxygen. Then inhale pure oxygen with a mask or nasal cannula.

How does it work?
It brings in the surrounding air, and then uses a sieve bed and filter to compress the air and filter out other gases in the oxygen, including nitrogen. The user inhales medical grade and concentrated oxygen through a nasal cannula or mask.

The air we breathe around is usually 80% nitrogen and 20% oxygen. It sucks in air, purifies and condenses oxygen, bringing its purity to 90% to 95%. This in turn makes nitrogen five or ten percent.

A good way is to compare it to a window air conditioner-it takes in air, changes it, and then delivers the air in different forms. It breathes in air, purifies it, and is used by people who need medical oxygen to help treat low levels of oxygen in their blood.

IT Department:
1. The cooling mechanism prevents the oxygen generator from overheating when compressing air.
2. It draws air from the surroundings.
3. The electrical composition of the concentrator allows you to adjust the settings.
4. Then use a sieve bed and filter to remove nitrogen.
5. Finally, it delivers pure oxygen through a nasal catheter or mask.
People who needed oxygen therapy in the past had to rely on pressurized oxygen tanks. Although these tanks are very effective, they are also somewhat inefficient because they need to be replenished regularly.
