Inogen At Home Oxygen Concentrator - Overview
One of the most energy-efficient, lightest, and quietest oxygen concentrators on the market today is the Inogen At Home Stationary Oxygen Concentrator. It is half the weight of its counterparts, weighing in at around 18 pounds. Inogen At Home is an oxygen concentrator with a continuous flow rate of up to 5 liters per minute (LPM). Continuous flow oxygen concentrators employ a nasal cannula to supply a consistent stream of supplementary oxygen to the user's nasal passage.
In addition to being extremely lightweight, the Inogen At Home is quiet, averaging roughly 40 dBA operating volume, or the volume of a quiet library. This home oxygen concentrator is also energy efficient, using the same amount of energy as a 100W light bulb on an oxygen flow setting of 2 LPM. It’s no surprise that Inogen oxygen concentrators are some of the most popular devices on the market.
Inogen At Home Oxygen Concentrator - Features
Inogen At Home Battery Life
The Inogen At Home features a user-friendly interface, with a singular power button and two flow control buttons for the best oxygen concentrator for the home experience. Users can determine the current setting of their device with the help of three LED indicators on the control panel. One represents the current oxygen flow setting, while the other two LEDs are alarm indicators. Flashing LEDs indicate a higher-priority alarm that should be handled immediately.
To use the Inogen At Home, make sure the device is plugged into a known, working electrical outlet. As the concentrator has an air intake filter, ensure it is placed far enough away from a wall to allow air to circulate, and keep it out of dusty environments. Connect your nasal cannula to the output flow valve. Once plugged in, press the power button. A short beep will sound, and the LEDs will illuminate briefly. Ensure that oxygen is flowing through your tubing and place the cannula into your nostrils. Breathe normally.
*A valid prescription from a licensed physician is required to purchase this product.

Large Control Panel Buttons - Inogen Home Concentrator
The Inogen At-home concentrator has oversized buttons in the control panel so that people with vision impairments can more easily read the controls. The control panel has an on/off button and a flow setting button. There are also general alarm and caution buttons in the control panel. There are three types of priority alarms:
- Low Priority Alarm - The concentrator will beep twice and a solid yellow light will be visible.
- Medium Priority Alarm - The concentrator will beep three times and a flashing yellow light will be visible.
- High Priority Alarm - The concentrator will beep five times and a flashing red light will be visible.
How to Use the Inogen Home Oxygen Concentrator
The concentrator must be placed in a well-ventilated area so that the exhaust and air intake are easily accessible. Maintain a distance of at least 6 inches between the oxygen concentrator and walls, curtains, furniture, or any other object that can get in the way of air intake to the device.
- Check to ensure the intake filter and particle filter are in place before turning on the device.
- Check the user manual if you want to use the humidifier bottle and ensure that you have placed it in its designated location. Otherwise, you can connect the nasal cannula tubing directly to the nozzle fitting which is situated at the top of the Inogen At Home oxygen concentrator.
- Plug the power cord into the electrical outlet on the wall and the other end to the back of the concentrator and turn on the switch associated with the wall outlet.
- Now, press the ON/OFF button on the oxygen concentrator to turn on the device. You will see all the indicator lights illuminating for a short while and hear a single short beep.
- Set the device according to your prescription. See the default settings on the display and adjust accordingly. The green LED will indicate that you achieved the desired flow rate of oxygen.
- After selecting the prescribed setting, wait about 5 minutes until the device achieves those settings. After you see the green LED flashing, you may begin your therapy.
- Check the tubing for any damage, pinching, or kinking.
- Ensure that the nasal cannula is delivering oxygen. The green LED will indicate whether the oxygen is flowing or not.
- Once done with the therapy, you can turn off the device by pressing the ON/OFF button.
Inogen At Home Oxygen Concentrator - Attaching the Optional Humidifier
As with other home oxygen concentrators, the Inogen At Home provides users with the option to use a humidifier bottle, alleviating nose dryness and irritation. The rear panel of the device includes a mounted velcro strap, used to secure the humidifier bottle in place.
Before securing the bottle to your concentrator, fill it with water to the max fill line and make sure the lid is secure. Attach the tubing from the humidifier lid to the oxygen output valve on the Inogen concentrator. Once in place, connect the tubing of your oxygen cannula to the output valve on the humidifier. Refer to your manufacturer instructions for further assistance.
Inogen At Home Oxygen Concentrator - Safety & Maintenance
The Inogen At Home Oxygen Concentrator uses a series of LEDs and audible alarms to alert the user to any change in operating status. Flashing LEDs indicate a higher-priority alarm that must be dealt with as soon as possible. These alarms can include fire hazards, low/high operating temperature, no oxygen, or system failure. Troubleshooting for these alarms can be found in the user manual for the device. Users can also call our knowledgeable customer care team for assistance.
