Oxygen Tank Vs.
This question can be answered by your physician but we can help break down the benefits of both types of oxygen devices for your knowledge. Typically people who need a higher pressure or flow of oxygen coming in to their lungs will need an oxygen tank.
Oxygen tanks can usually supply users for up to 15 liters per minute flow of oxygen. The downside of this high pressure oxygen is that it will cause the oxygen tank to empty quicker than usual and you will find yourself refilling oxygen tanks constantly.
More efficient ways to use oxygen would be to use oxygen concentrators. These are not recommended for users who need a high oxygen flow since their capacities typically only handle upwards of 10 liters per minute flow of oxygen.
Stationary or home oxygen concentrators are common for home use because they plug into an outlet and provide a continuous flow of oxygen. Most oxygen concentrators will only go up to a setting of 5 liters per minute but there are options available for 10 liters per minute as well. These oxygen concentrators are recommended for sleep.
Portable oxygen concentrators have gained a lot of popularity for those who want to leave the house and still have freedom to do the things they love. Many users can take these on flights and travel with them local or internationally. These concentrators typically go up to only 5 liters per minute of oxygen but have a pulse-dose mechanism to conserve battery life. This means that every time the user takes a breath, that's when the unit gives a puff of oxygen. There are portable oxygen concentrators that can provide continuous flow of oxygen as well but they can be much more expensive and their battery may not last as long.
How To Safely Store Oxygen
Although oxygen is a safe gas, there are still a few best practices to use when you are using oxygen at home.
1.) You want to make sure you never smoke when using oxygen because an open flame can support the process of combustion. This also means that you have to be careful using oxygen in the kitchen when you are near a gas stove or candle.
2.) You always want to store your oxygen in a temperate environment. Do not leave your oxygen tanks or oxygen concentrators in a car for a long period of time.
3.) Make sure your oxygen tank or oxygen concentrator is in an upright position and does not topple over. This will ensure that your oxygen tank does not leak and will also help from causing any damage to your oxygen device.
4.) You can also try taking safety measures around the house and put signs that you use oxygen indoors so workers present in the area can be aware.
