What Is an Oxygen Concentrator and What Does It Do?

An oxygen concentrator is a medical machine that separates the oxygen from the air and delivers it to a patient. It is used to treat people with low blood oxygen levels, also known as hypoxemia. We offer Oxygen concentrators for sale in both portable and stationary models.

How Does an Oxygen Concentrator Work?

In short, an oxygen concentrator works by taking in air from the surrounding environment and passing it through a series of filters. The filters remove the nitrogen and other gases from the air, leaving behind the oxygen. The oxygen is then concentrated and delivered to the patient through a nasal cannula or face mask.

The oxygen concentrator has two main components:

  • A compressor: This is the part of the concentrator that draws in air from the surrounding environment.
  • A sieve bed: This is the part of the concentrator that removes the nitrogen and other gases from the air.

The compressor draws in air from the surrounding environment and passes it through the sieve bed. The sieve bed is made of a material called zeolite, which has tiny pores that allow oxygen molecules to pass through, but not nitrogen molecules. The nitrogen molecules are trapped in the sieve bed and the oxygen molecules are released into the airstream.

Types of Oxygen Concentrators

There are two main types of oxygen concentrators: stationary and portable.

Stationary oxygen concentrators are designed to be used in one place, such as in the home or in a hospital as they are larger and more powerful than portable oxygen concentrators.

Portable oxygen concentrators are designed to be moved around, such as when traveling or going out. They are normally smaller and lighter than stationary oxygen concentrators.

Here are some of the factors to consider when you want to purchase an oxygen machine:

  • Your specific medical requirements: The type of oxygen concentrator that is appropriate for you will be determined by the specific requirements of your medical condition. If you want a significant quantity of oxygen at one time, you will require a concentrator that is both more robust and substantial in size.
  • Your way of life: You will require a portable oxygen concentrator if you have a lifestyle that requires you to move about a lot.
  • Consider your financial constraints: the cost of an oxygen concentrator can range anywhere from a few thousand to several thousand rand.

If you are considering using an oxygen concentrator, it is important to discuss it thoroughly with your medical team. They can help you choose and buy the right concentrator for your needs and lifestyle.

How Is Oxygen Delivered with Oxygen Machines

Oxygen can be delivered to the patient in need through a variety of devices.

Depending on the circumstances and the condition of the patient, any of the following would be used:

  • A nasal cannula, which is a small tube that is placed in the patient’s nostrils. It delivers a steady, low flow of oxygen.
  • An oxygen face mask, which is a type of clear mask that covers both the nose and mouth of a patient. The mask delivers a higher flow of oxygen than a nasal cannula.
  • A tracheostomy tube is a tube that is inserted directly into the trachea (windpipe) of the patient. A tracheostomy tube delivers a high flow of oxygen directly to the lungs.
  • An oxygen tent – a clear plastic tent that completely surrounds the patient. It delivers a high flow of oxygen to the entire body.

The doctor or medical team will decide which type of device should be used as it will depend on the patient’s needs and the severity of his or her condition.

Who May Need an Oxygen Concentrator

People who may need an oxygen concentrator include:

  • People with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • People with asthma
  • People with heart failure
  • People with pneumonia
  • People with sleep apnea
  • People who have had surgery
  • People who find themselves at very high altitudes

Guidelines for Safe Oxygen Concentrator Use

Here are some guidelines on how to safely use oxygen machines:

  • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Keep and use the oxygen concentrator in a well-ventilated area.
  • Do not smoke or use any other open flames near the oxygen concentrator.
  • Keep the oxygen concentrator away from heat sources.
  • Do not use the oxygen concentrator if it is damaged.
  • Regularly inspect the oxygen concentrator for leaks.

Are Oxygen Machines Expensive in South Africa?

The cost of oxygen machines can be very high in South Africa. The price of an oxygen machine can range from R15,000 to R30,000 or more, depending on the model, features, and brand.

There are a few factors that contribute to the high cost of oxygen machines, like the cost of imported parts and components and the fact that many oxygen machines are imported from overseas.

Oxygen machines are complex devices that require specialized manufacturing techniques and they are also regulated by the South African government, which adds to the cost.
