O2 concentrator?

Recommended Posts

I have just had my first experience with oxygen rental, and while it did help  me, it wasn't reallyo what I needed. I'm wondering if and O2 concentrator would be best? Many of you have lots of experience with oxygen and I'd love to hear from you as to what you think is best. I know NOTHING. The concept of going to a welding shop and trying to piece together my own system sounds daunting. Thanks so much.

O2 concentrators generally are sub optimal.  You need the 100% O and flow rates of at least 6-8 liters per minute.  Many folks need 10-25 liters per minute.  The idea of 100% high flow oxygen is to initiate central vasoconstriction to abort the headache.  It seems like a pain but getting O2 bottles can be life changing.  There are well put together info posts on using welding O2 if the medical system betrays you.
