DeVilbiss iGo2 Portable Oxygen Concentrator –  Key Features

Travel-Friendly

This portable oxygen concentrator is compact and lightweight. It is ideal for travel, whether short trips or long. Weighing only 5 pounds, the POC fits snugly in a suitcase for long-distance travel. It can also conveniently fit in a carrying case for over-the-shoulder accessibility while running errands around town.

Relatively Safer

The flexibility of the SmartDose Technology helps make this portable oxygen concentrator ideal for anyone who relies on oxygen therapy to be dynamic and responsive to changing breathing conditions. If your respiratory illness is dependent on immediate supplemental oxygen needs, then this POC could be a lifesaver.

This technology allows the portable oxygen concentrator to increase capacity as the breathing rate increases. It offers a safe and reliable alternative to standard pulse dose and continuous dose POCs which require individual adjustment. This POC is always monitoring your breathing to ensure you are where you need to be based on your oxygen therapy requirements.

Powerful Lithium Batteries

Reliable batteries are essential for any portable oxygen concentrator. That is why the DeVilbiss iGo2 comes with long-lasting lithium batteries which provide extended battery life for the POC. The endurance battery lasts up to 5 hours and 30 minutes. When the battery is low, the portable oxygen concentrator will give the user an audible warning. The battery will take 3 hours to be fully charged. It works with three types of power supplies: battery, AC, and DC. The device can be on a recreational vehicle, boat, or car. It will need to be recharged as needed even if away from a standard electrical outlet.

Reliable Oxygen Flow

For those who need dependable oxygen flow all the time, even while on the go, this portable oxygen concentrator ensures delivery with dynamic auto-adjusting technology. The SmartDose Technology automatically adjusts to the oxygen setting of the user. It will also detect the breathing rate of the user to deliver the required amount of oxygen needed and keep the oxygen flow constant. 1-5LPM pulse dose settings and continuous flow settings are also available for manual adjustment. Audible warnings announce when oxygen output is low or in pulse mode that no breath is detected so the user is always aware of oxygen flow.

Is It FAA Approved?

This portable oxygen concentrator is FAA approved for all domestic and international flights for use in-flight by passengers. In general, commercial airlines do not provide medical oxygen. But, they do allow passengers to bring a battery-powered portable oxygen concentrator (POC) for use in flight. POCs that are approved by the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) are the only portable oxygen concentrators that are allowed for flights.

 The FAA requires approved POCs as there are dramatic changes in air pressure during flight, and airlines want to make sure that portable oxygen concentrators will be able to adapt.
