An oxygen concentrator is a device that concentrates the oxygen by taking in air and removes nitrogen from it, leaving an oxygen enriched gas for use by people requiring medical oxygen due to low oxygen levels in their blood.
This device is intended to supply supplementary oxygen-enriched air to persons requiring Oxygen Therapy generally to the patients of heart, lung, other respiratory diseases, brain fatigue, athletics fatigue, or plateau hypoxia patients. These patients can get benefit from supplemental oxygen therapy given by Oxygen Concentrator. Human body requires a steady supply of oxygen to function properly. The physician prescribes supplemental oxygen to the person who may not be getting enough oxygen from room air alone.
Supplemental oxygen will increase the amount of oxygen which body requires. This device is to be used as an oxygen supplement and is not considered life supporting or life sustaining.
The oxygen concentrator is intended to be used in healthcare facilities by qualified healthcare professional or trained operators for adult and paediatric patients. It can also be used in homecare under the supervision of healthcare professional.
Oxygen concentrator is an electronically operated device that separates oxygen from room air. It provides high concentration of oxygen directly to you through a nasal cannula. Clinical studies have documented that oxygen concentrators are therapeutically equivalent to other types of oxygen delivery systems. Oxygen concentrators are used very widely for oxygen provision in healthcare applications, especially where liquid or pressurized oxygen is too dangerous or inconvenient, such as in homes or in portable clinics.
Oxygen concentrators work on the principle of ‘rapid pressure swing adsorption’ which is where the Nitrogen is removed from the air using zeolite minerals which adsorb the Nitrogen, leaving the other gases to pass through and leaving oxygen as the primary gas. Once the oxygen is collected the pressure then drops which allows Nitrogen to desorb and be expelled back into the air through Silencer.
An oxygen concentrator has an air compressor, two cylinders filled with zeolite pellets, a pressure equalizing reservoir and valves and tubes. During the first half-cycle the first cylinder receives air from the compressor, which lasts about 6 seconds. During that time, the pressure in the first cylinder rises from atmospheric to a few times normal atmospheric pressure and the zeolite becomes saturated with nitrogen which is removed through exhaust by silencer. As the first cylinder reaches near pure oxygen (there are small amounts of argon, CO2, water vapour, radon and other minor atmospheric components) a valve opens and the oxygen enriched gas flows to the pressure equalizing reservoir, which connects to the patient’s oxygen hose. At the end of the first half of the cycle, the air from the compressor is directed to the 2nd cylinder. Pressure in the first cylinder drops as the enriched oxygen moves into the reservoir, allowing the nitrogen to be exhaust through Silencer. Part way through the second half of the cycle there is another valve position change to vent the gas in the first cylinder back into the ambient atmosphere, keeping the concentration of oxygen in the pressure equalizing reservoir from falling below about 90%. The pressure in the hose delivering oxygen from the equalizing reservoir is kept steady by a pressure reducing valve.
- Portable and Easy to use
- Low Cost and Maintenance
- Patients can use at Home under the Supervision of Doctors or Healthcare workers.
- Cannot be used continuously for more than 24 hours. Needs to be switched off for 30 minutes for cooling.
- Needs Electricity back up in case of Power supply Failure.
If oxygen saturation drops below 94%, then patient’s needs Oxygen Therapy immediately to avoid damage to other body parts. In this Case, the Oxygen concentrators play an important role to supply Supplemental Oxygen to Patients through Nasal Cannula.
