Oxygen concentrators produce up to 95 percent pure oxygen. They also have built-in oxygen sensors that can show if the purity level is dropping.
What is Oxygen Concentrator?
While India battles the massive spike in coronavirus cases during the second wave and there is an increased need for oxygen. As hospitals struggle to meet the need for oxygen, which has resulted in patient death in several cases, the need for oxygen concentrators is also increasing.
The oxygen concentrator delivers oxygen in the same way as the oxygen cylinder, and delivers oxygen directly to the patient through the same nasal cannula or oxygen mask. However, if the oxygen cylinder contains a fixed amount of compressed oxygen, the concentrator will extract oxygen from the environment air.Focus on that and then give it to the patient so there is no need to replace or refill.
“Their Working principle is to absorbs Gas through rapid Pressure Fluctuations, in which nitrogen is removed from the air with the help of zeolite minerals, zeolite minerals absorb nitrogen, Absorbs other gases and use oxygen as the main gas.The pressure drops, allowing the nitrogen to be desorbed and expelled back into the air through mufflers, ”Sunil Khurana, MD and CEO of BPL Medical Technologies in New Delhi, told IANS.
“Oxygen concentrators have no charge restrictions. They draw oxygen from the air itself and allow unlimited supply of oxygen until power is available. The oxygen concentrator is a safer option compared to oxygen cylinders because cylinders can sometimes leak and become oxygenated.” increases the risk of fire, “said Dr. Ravi Shekhar Jha, HOD and Senior Consultant for Pulmonology at Fortis Escorts Hospital in Faridabad, opposite IANS.
Oxygen concentrators produce up to 95 percent pure oxygen and have built-in oxygen sensors that can show if the purity is dropping, Khuranna said.
