Oxygen Concentrators

Choose from FDA-approved stationary & portable oxygen concentrators for the oxygen-impaired

Patients who have trouble getting enough oxygen from breathing normal air can be assisted by breathing more purified oxygen from an oxygen concentrator. Oxygen concentrators are electric machines that turn normal room air into a more concentrated amount of oxygenated air. The oxygen delivery rate can be adjusted to suit the needs of the patient by setting the oxygen concentrator flow meter.

We carry Drive DeVilbiss®, CAIRE, Airsep, Roscoe Medical and Rhythm Healthcare portable and stationary oxygen concentrators for use by the disabled, handicapped, elderly, or other breathing impaired persons in the convalescent hospital, skilled nursing, assisted living facility or in a home care environment.

Beware cheap over-the-counter portable oxygen concentrators.

We love offering the best price online for oxygen concentrators, and we want you to get the best price, but we want to caution you if you're just price shopping. Over the counter portable oxygen concentrators that you might be able to find online for less money, might not be FDA approved. 

But even more than that, over-the-counter (OTC) portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) are not as effective as prescription POCs and can be dangerous. 

study published in Respiratory Care found that OTC POCs only delivered about 25% of the oxygen that prescription POCs did. This means that patients who use OTC POCs may not be getting the oxygen they need to breathe properly.

In addition, OTC POCs are not regulated by the FDA. This means that there is no guarantee of their safety or effectiveness.

  • OTC POCs are often not powerful enough to meet the needs of patients with chronic lung disease.
  • OTC POCs can be dangerous for patients who have underlying health conditions, such as heart disease or stroke.
  • OTC POCs can be difficult to use and maintain.
  • Prescription POCs are more expensive than OTC POCs, but they are also more effective and safer.

The FDA also had this to say: "You should not use an oxygen concentrator at home unless it has been prescribed by a health care provider. Giving yourself oxygen without talking to a doctor first may do more harm than good. You may end up taking too much or too little oxygen. Deciding to use an oxygen concentrator without a prescription can lead to serious health problems, such as oxygen toxicity caused by receiving too much oxygen."

In short, your life is precious, so look for the FDA-approved label and "prescription required".

What about stationary oxygen concentrators? Are they FDA approved? 

Yes. All the oxygen concentrators we carry are FDA approved. They also all require a prescription to meet the FDA requirements. A prescription is the only evidence we have of exactly what your needs are so that we can be sure your oxygen needs are met with the right equipment. 

The ADHME Assurance

American Discount Home Medical Equipment only sells prescription POCs that are FDA-approved because we are committed to providing our customers with the best possible care. For the same reason, we require a prescription for each of the portable and stationary concentrators we sell. 

Oxygen Concentrator FAQs

Which is better, an oxygen tank or an oxygen concentrator?

Oxygen concentrators have some distinct advantages over tanks: 

  • Portability: 
    Oxygen concentrators are much more portable than oxygen tanks. This means that people who use oxygen concentrators can be more active and independent. They can go out to dinner, travel, and even go for walks without having to worry about running out of oxygen.
  • Convenience: 
    Oxygen concentrators are also more convenient to use than oxygen tanks. There is no need to refill oxygen tanks, and there is no need to carry heavy tanks around. Oxygen concentrators can simply be plugged into an electrical outlet and used whenever needed.
  • Cost-effectiveness: 
    Oxygen concentrators are more cost-effective than oxygen tanks in the long run. The initial cost of an oxygen concentrator is higher than the initial cost of an oxygen tank, but the cost of electricity to run an oxygen concentrator is much lower than the cost of refilling oxygen tanks.

Do I need a prescription for an oxygen concentrator?

In accordance with the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), oxygen concentrators are considered a Class II Medical Device. This means that you must have a valid prescription from a board-certified doctor in order to purchase one.

Will the prescription tell me what kind of concentrator I need? 

Yes. If your prescription calls for pulse dose oxygen, your needs are likely less severe. Pulse dose oxygen is delivered in short bursts, triggered by a patient’s inhalation. Portable oxygen concentrators are best for pulse dose oxygen needs. If you've been prescribed a steady flow of oxygen, you will most likely need a stationary oxygen concentrator

Your prescription will also define your oxygen level needs and how much oxygen per minute you will need. Read the machine's specifications to be sure it has the capacity your prescription requires. 

How long will an oxygen concentrator last?

Most oxygen concentrators provide reliable performance for at leas4 to 7 years. With upkeep, they may last longer.

Which is better, a 5L or 10L oxygen concentrator?

It depends on your need. A 5L oxygen cylinder can provide 5 litres of oxygen in a minute, while the 10L concentrator can provide 10 litres of oxygen in a minute. The first should be enough for patients with mild symptoms and basic requirements. We recommend you ask your doctor.

How often should an oxygen concentrator be cleaned?

Clean your particle filter monthly. Clean the outside of the oxygen concentrator weekly. Use alcohol wipes to clean the outside of the tubing connecting the nasal cannula daily. Replace your nasal cannulas and tubing monthly when using your oxygen concentrator regularly.

How do you clean the filter?

Remove the filter, then clean it with a mild detergent and water. Rinse in water and dry before reuse. You may notice if you do not clean your filters regularly that there may be reduced airflow, and you may also not be receiving the prescribed oxygen you need.

What should you not do when using an oxygen concentrator?

Do not use your oxygen within six feet of electrical appliances, especially stoves, heaters, toasters, or hair dryers. Do not use your oxygen in an area where combustible materials, such as oils, greases, aerosol sprays, lotions, or solvents, are present. Do not use petroleum-based products while oxygen is in use.

How much is shipping?
Shipping is free in the Continental USA for all commodes and other products. Please contact us if you require shipping to Alaska or Hawaii.

What if I don't like it? What is your return policy?
Some products by law cannot be returned for hygienic reasons. For all others, we offer a 30-day return policy on most products. Damaged product may be returned and exchanged at no cost to you. All others will be shipped at the customer’s expense to the least costly location. A 15-20% restocking fee will also apply depending on the item. See our Policy page for more information.

You said you will match price if I found a cheaper price elsewhere. What do I need to do to get that low price?
Thank you for wanting to do business with us! This is explained in detail on our Policy page. First though, we like to advise customers that there may be hidden costs at other shopping sites such as shipping or tax. Or perhaps what you're looking at may not include options we include. Be sure you are comparing apples to oranges!

Do you bill Medicare?
In order to keep our costs down and offer greatly reduced prices, ADHME does not bill any insurance company. However, for certain products that Medicare may partially reimburse on a purchase (i.e., commodes, lift chairs, walkers and rollators), we do provide a detailed paid invoice which will include any product HCPCS billing codes. We suggest checking with your private insurance company about possible reimbursement from them with your paid receipt.
