Portable oxygen systems. Any recommendations?

Follow
Share

My mother has COPD and requires oxygen. When she goes away from home she has to bring 2-3 tanks of oxygen with her. I am interested if any one has had experience with Portable Oxygen Systems that would provide continuous flow of air instead of the pulse air flow systems. I have read some of the new systems on the market can even be used or charged while riding in the car by means of the car battery, much like charging a cellphone. She has a homebase unit covered by medicare. Wondering if medicare would also cover the portable smaller unit.

Like ronnie355 posted, portable units do not go up very high. Medicare would never cover the cost of a portable concentrator for my aunt about a year ago, either.

I have a portable unit that can be charged while in use. It came with a adapter for the car which is nice. My mom can sleep with it plugged in if we are in a hotel. Ours is pulse air with the highest setting at 3. It has a belt which has a battery in it so. We were able to vacation and she kept up walking with the rest of us.

is a great product. I know a little boy on oxygen and this has been a great asset for the family for trips. They have an extra battery, I don't know about charging in the car. At home they still use the tanks but for travel this is phenomenal. Good luck. The are headquartered in Goleta, CA.
