For decades, people living with emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have had one option for supplemental oxygen when leaving home: a cumbersome portable gas system with bulky tanks that need frequent refilling. Respiratory patients now have an alternative to traditional oxygen tank systems. The SimplyGo Mini portal oxygen concentrator is now available at Kaiser Community Pharmacy.
The portable oxygen concentrator (POC) is more discreet, easier to use and for eligible pulmonary patients, it delivers oxygen more efficiently than the tank system. Unlike a portable oxygen tank, the concentrator makes the oxygen itself. With this new unit, you can use it anywhere for any length of time because it comes with a rechargeable battery. You can plug it into a DC power source or any AC outlet.
Kaiser Community Pharmacy offers personal equipment instruction as well as prompt equipment repair for all of our products. Our Home Care staff is available for consultation Monday through Friday, 8 am – 5 pm.
