Traveling with Portable Oxygen
Many people travel while using portable oxygen. Planning your trip in advance is important. Portable oxygen concentrators are oxygen machines that produce oxygen with the use of a battery or electricity. There are a number of concentrators to choose from, and many public transportation systems are allowing the use of portable units.
Most airlines and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will allow portable oxygen concentrators aboard their planes. If you're flying on a long trip, contact your airline to ensure your POC complies with regulations. If your unit requires electricity, find out if there are hookups available. A portable DC power cable can be used with specific units that allow a connection directly to an auxiliary DC power supply.
What's the difference betweeen oxygen tanks and oxygen concentrators?
There are several differences, but the main difference is that tanks carry a limited supply of compressed gas, whereas concentrators collect oxygen from the surrounding air, concentrate it, and then deliver it, removing the need for replacement or refilling.
