Yuwell’s goal is to help you determine which portable oxygen generator will give you the freedom to continue with as many daily activities as possible. There are two types of oxygen delivery systems that provide supplementary oxygen therapy: continuous flow (resuscitation, balanced ECLIPS, etc.) and pulsed dose (yuwell-1 G3, airsep freestyle, Invacare xpo2, etc.). All portable oxygen generators we carry have been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for use by airlines, and the airline will no longer allow you to use oxygen generation equipment in flight.

Pulse dose system is the most commonly used portable oxygen concentrator because of its light weight and long battery life. Some systems can last eight hours after the battery is charged. However, some oxygen users need continuous oxygen flow due to their diagnosis or disease progression. Any oxygen user who titrates oxygen into his CPAP or BiPAP treatment also needs continuous flow.

Benefits of oxygen therapy

Oxygen is a basic human need. Without it, we cannot survive. The air we breathe contains about 21% oxygen. For most people with healthy lungs, 21% oxygen is enough, but if you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or pulmonary dysfunction, the amount of oxygen you get from normal breathing is not enough. In this case, you need to replenish oxygen to maintain normal body function.

If you need oxygen, you may not notice your contempt. After testing, your doctor may find that you are not getting enough oxygen.

Benefits of oxygen therapy

In addition to helping prevent heart failure in people with severe lung diseases, such as COPD, there are many benefits of oxygen supplementation. Some studies have shown that patients who use oxygen for more than 15 hours a day have improved survival. According to the American Lung Association, oxygen supplementation improves sleep, mood, mental alertness and endurance, and enables individuals to perform normal daily functions.
