The FreeStyle® Comfort®’s lightweight, curved design hugs your body, so you’ll hardly know it’s there. It has the power to let you stay out all day long with greater flexibility to increase flow rates as your prescription changes. Patented smart oxygen delivery features ensure you get the oxygen you need, when you need it, keeping you comfortable and worry-free by adjusting to your automatically breathing patterns and level of activity.
What is the Oxygen Concentrator
The air we breathe contains approximately 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen, and 1% other gasses. In the FreeStyle® Comfort®, room air is drawn into the machine through the air intakes. It then passes through an adsorbent material called molecular sieve. This material separates the oxygen from the nitrogen and allows only the oxygen to pass through. The result is a flow of high-concentration oxygen delivered to the user.
The FreeStyle Comfort combines advanced oxygen concentrator and oxygen conserving technologies to create a portable device that allows for maximum portability and ambulation. The advanced pulse flow delivery quickly senses when the user breathes in and delivers a pulse of oxygen at the beginning of each inhalation. Pulse flow delivery is ideal for activities and time away from home. It conserves oxygen and extends battery life as opposed to continuous flow. The FreeStyle Comfort is lightweight enough to be carried via shoulder strap. It can be operated on AC (wall), DC (vehicle) or battery power.
Why Your Physician Prescribed Oxygen
Many people suffer from a variety of heart, lung, and other respiratory diseases. A significant number of these people can benefit from supplemental oxygen therapy at home, when traveling, or while participating in daily activities away from home.
Oxygen is a gas that makes up 21% of the ambient air we breathe, and our bodies depend on a steady supply to function properly. Your physician prescribed a flow or setting to address your particular respiratory condition.
Although oxygen is a non-addictive drug, unauthorized oxygen therapy can be dangerous. You must seek medical advice before you use this oxygen concentrator. The Equipment Provider who supplies your oxygen equipment will demonstrate how to set the prescribed flow rate.
Concentrators are intended to supply supplemental oxygen to users suffering from discomfort due to ailments which effect the efficiency of one’s lungs to transfer oxygen in the air to their bloodstream. Portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) do not store or contain oxygen. They do not need to be refilled, and can recharge anywhere AC or DC power is available (except on an airplane). This makes the user relatively self-sufficient in terms of in-home use, ambulation (both within and outside of the home), mobility, and overall lifestyle. Oxygen concentrator use requires a physician’s prescription and is not intended for life support use.
Although oxygen therapy can be prescribed for users of all ages, the typical oxygen therapy user is older than 65 years of age and suffers from a variety of respiratory diseases, including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Users typically have good cognitive abilities and must be able to communicate discomfort. If the user is unable to communicate discomfort, or unable to read and understand the concentrator labeling and instructions for use, then use is recommended only under the supervision of one who can. If any discomfort is felt while using the concentrator, users are advised to contact their healthcare provider. Users are also advised to have back-up oxygen available (i.e. cylinder oxygen) in the event of a power outage or concentrator failure. There are no other unique skills or user abilities required for concentrator use.
