Oxygen

Oxygen

What do you do about having your oxygen when you go on a 2 day road trip. I have a large concentrater for home and small for out and about.

I have a portable pulse concentrator that weighs only 5 lbs. I had to pay for it out of pocket but I understand Medicare and insurance may pay for them now. It even plugs into your car cigarette lighter while traveling if it needs recharged. I use it at home also rather than the large concentrator I have because it makes my electric bill go out of sight!!

I've had an Inogen one G2 for almost 7 years. I've bought extra batteries as I've gone on because they wear out. You can get a car charger for them, and a wall charger. I travel all over the country with mine constantly. I'm on oxygen 24/7.
I bought mine, $3600 with a lifetime guarantee. They've fixed it 3 times. Hey will usually overnight a replacement to you, so inconvenience is kept to a minimum .
$3600 seems like a lot of money, but so many people spend that much per year just on cell phones and cable TV. If you don't have $3600 use a credit card. You could pay it off in 3 years for $100 a month.
A small price to pay for you freedom .

I live in a RV, I have no tradition home. I am on the road 9 months a year, and camped around my home town for 3 month. I have a full size concentrator and my Inogen concentrator. I'm enjoying life with $25% lung function. (I'm 68 years old).
Any questions contact me.

I have an Inogen One G3 I take with me. Can be charged in the car or on 110 volts. Your doctor will help you get one going through Medicare... The newer ones out will go to 5 liters... Hope this helps. For all nighters, I take my home unit.

I have an up to 5L pulse Personal Oxygen Concentrator that is ideal for going on holiday and certainly day trips. If you are staying at a hotel or cruise ship Dolby Vivisol will supply you with oxygen wherever you are.

How do you get Medicare to pay for an Inogen?
