OxyGo and OxyGo FIT
Simply the BEST Portable Oxygen Concentrators on the market today
Every day, durable medical equipment oxygen providers are realizing that the only way they are going to survive in today’s low-reimbursement arena is to choose non-delivery methods of providing oxygen to their patients.
Oxygen concentrators that have cylinder filling capabilities were fine 5 to 10 years ago but historically, patients with these systems typically don’t travel far from home and only stay out for short periods of time for fear of running out of oxygen. Today, there is something better.
Portable oxygen concentrators are quickly becoming the modality of choice for DME companies who want to decrease their delivery overhead but still want to provide a modern product that will improve their patients’ quality of life.
Among the many POCs that are currently available, one brand outperforms all others hands down and remains the gold standard for which the other companies strive.
That brand is OxyGo / OxyGo FIT. Below are features that set OxyGo apart from all others:
- 4.8 lbs. Most competitors weigh more.
- Total oxygen output is 1050 l/min at setting 5, the highest on the market.
- 39 decibels at a setting of 2—the quietest on the market.
- Battery life of up to 9 hours on a single charge—allows the patient to have a full day away from home.
- The DC charger actually charges the battery (not just maintains the current charge) while the unit is being used by the patient.
- The trigger point is the most sensitive (-.12cm H20). This concentrator will effectively saturate most patients while other pulse dose systems with higher trigger points fail to deliver oxygen to the patient. OxyGo is so sensitive, you can attach up to 25 feet of tubing and nasal cannula and it will still trigger a breath. NO OTHER POC can make that claim.
- The OxyGo has an alarm system to notify you when a breath hasn’t been sensed in 60 seconds, plus it will begin delivery of 17 breaths of oxygen per minute while continuing to alarm until a breath is sensed. Most competition only has an alarm system.
- Because of the great sensitivity and backup rate of delivering oxygen, the OxyGo is the only manufacturer that states in writing that the patient can use this concentrator 24/7, which makes it the only truly portable oxygen concentrator on the market. All other POCs do not stand behind their unit to perform 24/7 and need a continuous flow oxygen backup for nighttime use.
- The OxyGo is the easiest POC to maintain. Battery replacement can be done in less than 10 seconds. If the sieve beds go bad, they too can be replaced in one minute’s time. All other POCs need to be sent back to the manufacturer, which may take weeks to get back.
- The new OxyGo FIT was introduced last year and is essentially the same as the OxyGo, but weighs only 2.8 pounds and has 3 settings. It still has all the bells and whistles of the full-sized OxyGo, but in a smaller, lighter package. If the competition is staying awake at night trying to match all the features of the OxyGo, the OxyGo FIT is going to give them… Fits!
