The Philips Respironics SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator is a reliable and convenient addition to your oxygen therapy needs. Built to be both sleek and durable, this compact device is the lightest POC that offers both continuous flow and pulse dose oxygen delivery. Weighing 10 lbs, the Respironics SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator has double the oxygen output as other portable concentrators in the same weight class!

Just like other oxygen concentrators, the Respironics SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator provides supplemental oxygen to users by filtering the room air around them. This oxygen is then provided to the individual via tubing and a nasal cannula or face mask.

Philips SimplyGo - Oxygen Delivery Mode
The Philips SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator offers three delivery modes
Continuous Flow Mode
In continuous flow mode, the POC delivers a constant flow of oxygen up to 2 liters per minute. Some patients may also have sleep apnea and require CPAP therapy in addition to supplemental oxygen. For those patients, a CPAP machine can be connected and used with the SimplyGo while in continuous flow mode.
In pulse mode, the POC detects when the user begins to take a breath and delivers a pulsed volume of oxygen on inhalation based on the settings. Oxygen does not flow upon exhalation. This requires less effort from the motor, which extends the battery duration. The system automatically delivers the pulsed volume of oxygen at 12 breaths per minute if the Respironics SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator doesn’t detect any breath for a period of time. Similarly, if the device is unable to detect any breath for 2 minutes then it signals an alarm. The oxygen concentrator will wait for 30 minutes for a breath before automatically shutting down.
In this mode, the Respironics SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator delivers the pulse volume of prescribed oxygen only after a breach is detected. The device delivers a softer pulse and provides increased sensitivity so that the patient doesn’t feel overwhelmed and can comfortably undergo therapy. The device switches back to previously used continuous flow mode settings if it doesn’t detect breath and automatically starts delivering a continuous flow of oxygen.

What is the Battery Power of a Respironics SimplyGo Portable Oxygen Concentrator?
A notable feature of SimplyGo is how accessible the battery is, making it easy for patients to change. No more internal batteries built into the device, and no more battery belts or connectors.
As seen in the chart, the Philips Respironics SimplyGo delivers between 1 to 3.4 hours of battery life, depending on your oxygen settings. Whether you are going on a road trip or a quick trip to the grocery store, SimplyGo will help you get there.
In addition to the battery, the Respironics SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator comes with an AC power supply and a DC power cord. Both will charge the battery while the device is plugged in, but charging time will vary depending on the concentrator’s settings. While using DC power, some device settings may prevent the battery from charging at all.
What are the Oxygen Settings of a Respironics SimplyGo Portable Oxygen Concentrator?
As mentioned, the Respironics SimplyGo Portable Oxygen Concentrator is one of the few POCs that offers both continuous flow and pulse dose modes. The SimplyGo provides between 0.5 and 2 liters of oxygen per minute in continuous flow mode, while pulse dose mode accommodates 6 pulse settings, ranging from 12mL to 72mL of oxygen per breath. No matter what your oxygen needs are, this unit delivers.
Before changing oxygen settings, be sure to consult with your doctor, as 2.0 LPM in continuous mode is not the same as a setting of 2 in pulse dose mode.
The lightweight, user-friendly design is a great choice for users looking for an active lifestyle. Key features include a long-life compressor, high-quality parts, an impact-resistant shell, and a mobile cart with oversized durable wheels. The SimplyGo was tested in extreme conditions, including impacts, vibrations, and temperatures to guarantee reliable performance no matter what.
The SimplyGo is not just durable, it’s also convenient. User-friendly accessories include a mobile cart, accessory bag, carrying case, and key device features including an easily accessible battery, easy-to-read screen, and alarms to let you know when something is wrong with your machine.
How To Select Operating Modes in Respironics SimplyGo Portable Oxygen Concentrator?

When the display changes, the concentrator is now working in this mode.
Philips Respironics SimplyGo Alarm Indicators
