What is the difference between the oxygen produced by the oxygen generator and the oxygen cylinder?

Recently, many friends are asking about the difference between oxygen concentrators and oxygen cylinders. I think there are still many people who have questions about these two oxygen supply equipment. Do you know whether to choose an oxygen concentrator or an oxygen cylinder? Let me explain to us.

  oxygen machineWhat is the difference between the oxygen coming out of the oxygen cylinder? First of all, the oxygen concentration from the oxygen generator and the oxygen cylinder is slightly different. The oxygen concentration of the oxygen cylinder is higher, which can reach more than 99%. The oxygen concentration of a general oxygen generator is about 93%. Although the oxygen concentration is different, for our general oxygen therapy population, as long as the oxygen concentration is satisfied with more than 90% of the oxygen, it can be.

Secondly, the sound of the two in use, the oxygen concentrator is working, about 40 decibels, and the oxygen cylinder provides no rated noise, and it is very quiet to use. Users who are more sensitive to sound can choose an oxygen cylinder. If it is an oxygen generator, use a long oxygen tube to push the oxygen generator farther, and the effect is the same.

Third, it is the cost of oxygen. At present, the average household oxygen generator is about three to four thousand yuan, and the price of a bottle of oxygen is about 20 yuan. If we use a bottle of oxygen per day, it is about 600 yuan a month. The cost of using it for one or two months is not very high, but after a long period of time, it is not recommended to use oxygen bottles for oxygen supply. As long as the oxygen inhalation time is longer than 6 months, and you spend 4000 yuan to buy an oxygen generator, then the cost is lower than the cost of the oxygen cylinder.

From the perspective of convenience and safety, the oxygen cylinder is worse. It needs to be replaced and inflated frequently. For a relatively remote place, inflation and ventilation are not very convenient. If the patient's oxygen demand is high, then one day It may be troublesome to change 2-3 bottles of oxygen. And although the oxygen cylinder can supply high-purity oxygen, the high-purity oxygen of the oxygen cylinder is generated through the action of pressure. Because of the high pressure, it is more dangerous to use.

Of course, the advantages of oxygen cylinders are not completely handled by the oxygen generator. Oxygen cylinders rarely show faults and are not affected by power outages. Therefore, people who cannot do without oxygen must prepare an oxygen cylinder at home to prevent accidents. , Bring risks to patients.
