But they also require your patient to think ahead and plan travel with supplemental oxygen carefully. This is true whether your patient is traveling by car, bus, train or plane.

Here Is information that will help you answer patient questions related to traveling by plane when asked. BothOxyGoandOxyGo FITare approved POCs by the FAA for air travel. OxyGo is approved because it was included on the original list of approved POCs, under a different trade name, by the FAA.

In a world where everything keeps getting more expensive, and portable concentrators seem to the be the next big thing, you may stop and think:Do I need to use oxygen cylinders? The short answer is YES. The long answer is YES AND you should be filling your own. Let me tell you why. Oxygen cylinders are still a necessity because not every patients prescription can be served by an oxygen concentrator, and cylinders are the only option if there is a power outage. This may seem like you are stuck paying high prices to buy cylinders from another company so that you can service your patients. But you arent. You can fill your own. And its really not that hard. At first it might seem daunting, but let me give you an analogy that can help explain why its got a big pay off. Imagine you had to eat out for every meal. Youd be stuck paying quite a bit of money for your food, and you wouldnt have any control of when you could eat(is the restaurant open 24/7?)or whats in
