 For patients on continuous oxygen therapy, oxygen conserving devices (OCD) is a great option. These devices regulate the flow of oxygen between the patient and the oxygen cylinder. Factual information states that a person inhales 1:3 times and exhales 2:3 of the time. That means 2:3 of the oxygen gets wasted while the patient exhales. To control this wastage conserving devices are helpful. OCDs greatly increase the time for which an oxygen reservoir can be used i.e. it will last for three times more than the cylinder without the device.

Benefits of using Oxygen Conserving Device

With OCDs you can conserve a handsome amount of oxygen so there will be a lesser need for refill. Hence buying an OCD is more economical and less wasteful. Buy Oxygen conserving devices from renowned brands like Evolution , Bonsai, Oxymizer and more with expertise in respiratory products at attractive prices on HPFY.

Types of Oxygen Conserving Devices:

Fixed Pulse OCDs

These devices initiate when a person takes a breath. The fixed pulse concentrators release a fixed volume of oxygen when initiated and stops at a preset limit. The flow rate is high in the initial period that permits the released volume to be delivered in the initial phase of inhalation. The volume of oxygen released vary by manufacturers and the specific devices. These devices are intended to produce a rate of oxygen flow similar to continuous flow. The rate of flow varies from 5 ml to 22 ml per setting per breath. Like the Invacare Element Pneumatic Oxygen Conserver.

Demand-pulse OCDs

These devices are also breath initiated but post-delivery of the initial volume of oxygen these OCDs continue to deliver a fixed rate of oxygen i.e. 2 liters/minute, until exhalation depending on the manufacturer. Some devices have a diminishing flow rate until the valve closes stopping the flow completely. The oxygen delivered in the last one third part of the breath is considered to be wasted as it falls in the anatomical dead space of the breath.

Oxygen Conserving Devices or Flow control regulators are reduce the pressure and are designed to regulate or lower oxygen pressure coming directly from an oxygen cylinder to a level that can be safely used by the patient. Browse our catalogue to find the device that best suits your requirement and be assured to get a product that delivers quality and value both at the same time.

What Are Oxygen Regulators

Unlike oxygen conserving devices, oxygen regulators have flow control valves that help regulate the flow of oxygen depending on the dosage of the user. Oxygen conserving devices work automatically to alter flow, whereas regulators need to be physically calibrated to set the flow of oxygen. This makes oxygen regulators cheaper than oxygen conserving devices.

FAQ's

Frequently asked questions

An oxygen conserving device controls the flow of oxygen from the source to the patient thus making oxygen therapy more efficient. Only when the patient inhales is the oxygen released through the device, delivering a “pulse” of oxygen. This makes the patient more mobile and also conserves oxygen thus increasing the patient’s oxygen-use period.

An oxygen regulator controls the free flow of oxygen from the cylinder to the patient. It is also referred to as a pressure regulator. A flow meter attached to the oxygen tank controls the speed of oxygen delivery from the cylinder. The doctor or caregiver may set the flow speed from 1-25 liters (LPM) per minute depending on the patient’s need of oxygen.

An oxygen flow meter is a device that is used to measure the flow of oxygen from the cylinder to the patient. It is usually attached to the oxygen cylinder but sometimes you may find it as a standalone device.

An oxygen flow meter is important during oxygen therapy because it provides a quantitative measurement of the gas flow and helps the caregiver monitor the therapy. An advantage of this device is in case of a blockage in the oxygen supply tubing. In such a case the doctor or caregiver is immediately alerted if there is an interruption in the supply.
