Oxygen Concentrators come in many shapes and sizes, and also produce different volumes of Oxygen, or Liters Per Minute (LPM). 10LPM Oxygen Concentrators are classified as an in home machine, that would require you to plug them in to a 110 volt household electrical outlet. Once you turn them on, they will need to run about 10 minutes to slowly climb from ambient air purity, to the maximum purity range of between 87-96% pure oxygen. Once this warm up period has finished, it is time to hook up your oxygen hose and use the machine. If equipped with the low purity sensor option, it is at this time the green O2 light should be illuminated on the front of your machine, indicating it is safe for use.
Current, there are 4 choices for 10LPM Oxygen Concentrators: Invacare Platinum 10LPM, Airsep Intensity 10LPM, Respironics Millennium 10LPM and DeVilbiss 1025DS. Lets talk about these machines below.
