I am confused on how you know what to take with you when you leave home. And how much oxygen to take with you. I have small tanks that have 2 hours in them and I bought a portable oxygen concentrator but I only get one hour with the battery. If I don't have anywhere to plug it in. And it has a smell to it when running. I am new to having oxygen 24/7.
DeborahReese:The portable concentrator is what I had. I will tell you what I had & what I did ans I never had a problem of being without oxygen.
I had 3 batteries & with a permanent marker on the bottom wrote 1 2 3
I had the electric charging outlet that it comes with
I purchased a car adapter ( many are universal )
**While driving to & from always plug unit into the cigarette lighter w/ car
adapter & that way you are not using the o2 off your battery
**Upon arriving at my destination I seek a place to sit near an electrical outlet.
**When returning home plug into car cigarette lighter
1st I would check with company that you purchased your unit from for prices
Check FB Marketplace"portable oxygen " in search bar
I also would bring with me my extra batteries in case there were times that I could not plug in
fyi- there may be 2 vented screen with covers these covers snap on & off they probably have 3 horizontal lines for venting ---- very important never to block this while in use or your unit may overheat CAUTION every 6 weeks take the covers off & clean removing any dust particles. ThenReplace. These covers are small about 2 inches by 1/2 inch in the front of unit.
ENJOY 🤩 😻 🤟
Hi are you on Medicare? They will pay for it. Actually its rental equipment to them!
Your Dr has to test you and do the paperwork. Hope this helps.
ShitleyJervis: Put your wallet, $$$, creditcards, check book, all checks, savings bank book in your dryer vent. DO NOT do laundry. Be careful.
Go to your mirror and PRACTICE saying " N O"!!! If he wants one dollar, it will become one hundred. If he says he needs a hundred it will become 500.00.
These alleged soldiers whom are scammers are ruthless money diggers.
I'm not saying that is this guy. But, B e careful.
Anything...anything at all that is not right hold your ground. Say BYE.Say NO.
I have been there.
1. your insurance will pay for the concentrator.
2. the batteries should last approx 4 hours, depending on the settings.
3. Depending on the size of the tanks, the settings n type of meter you have.
Medicare will pay to rent what you need. If your Saturation is 88% or lower.
Call Medicare 1 800 Medicare.
If you have a supplement to Medicare call your supplement Insurance.
Let me Know.
I have a port unit also. I have 2 batteries but when I go out I plug it into car and keep it charging. I'm not usually out very much but when I do go out it's usually to a Drs office, labs etc. I don't go out to eat very much but I find 2 hours is plenty.
