Oxygen. We take it for granted, don't we? Then suddenly it's all we can think about. Oxygen dependence can be a game-changer, but it doesn't have to be a life-changer. I've spent years learning about the latest in portable oxygen equipment. There are so many options, and I want to share them with you. I'm the Oxygen Gal, teacher of all things oxygen!
Portable oxygen concentrators were designed for oxygen users who desire a small, lightweight and affordable oxygen solution in portable and mobile unit. Portable oxygen concentrators are designed for each individual’s oxygen needs and vary in weight, size, oxygen flow settings and battery life. We carry over 20 different models of new and used mobile oxygen concentrators, all in different sizes, oxygen flow types, liters per minutes and specifications.
Oxygen concentration refers to the total amount of oxygen in a given system. This term is frequently used in both medicine and in the study of the environment. In medicine, oxygen concentration, which is also called oxygen saturation, refers to the amount of oxygen that is carried through the blood by the red blood cells, as well as what is dissolved in the body tissues. In the environment, the oxygen saturation may be measured by comparing the percentage of oxygen to the percentage of other molecules in a liquid or gas.
In humans, oxygen is found in three places. It can be held in the lungs, found dissolved in the tissues of the body, or carried through the blood attached to red blood cells. Humans need to breathe frequently because they are unable to store more than a few minutes worth of oxygen at any time. Other animals, such as some aquatic mammals and reptiles, are able to slow their metabolism down and store more oxygen in their bodies so that they can hold their breath for longer.
