Seven additional Portable Oxygen Concentrators have now made it to the list of FAA Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrators. The FAA Federal Aviation Administration deems the use of any Portable Oxygen Concentrator safe for use aboard aircraft even without the FAA Approved sticker.  Since an FAA Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrator is neither compressed gas or liquid oxygen, the DOT (Department of Transportation) does not deem these products a safety hazard.

The newly FAA Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrators include two offerings from AirSep, the AirSep Focus and the Airsep Freestyle 5.  This is great news for AirSep corporation, which was recently acquired by Chart SeQual.  The AirSep Freestyle 5 is AirSep’s newest portable oxygen concentrator, and as of this date is not even released to the public.

Inogen also has their new product, the Inogen One G3 on the updated FAA Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrator list.  The Inogen One G3 promises lighter weight and easier traveling for portable oxygen users.

Inova Labs follows their incredibly successful LifeChoice Portable Oxygen Concentrator  with a unit providing more oxygen, thus accessing a larger portion of portable oxygen users.  The  Inova Labs LifeChoice Activox in newly minted among the FAA Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrators.

The Respironics SimplyGo, which made it’s debut in the beginning of 2011 would be classified receiving long awaited recognition. If you have a Respironics SimplyGo and need a FAA sticker now that the unit is among the FAA Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrators, please contact us.

Precision Medical, long a pioneer of Oxygen Conserving Devices, has created a terrific product out of their US based plant.  Sharing the same name as the compressed gas brother, the Precision Medical EasyPulse is now on the FAA Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrator list.

Last but certainly not least among the newly ordained FAA Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrators is the offering from Chart SeQual, the SAROS.  With Chart SeQual effectively receiving three check marks today, Chart SeQual shareholders must be smiling a wee bit.

FAA Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrators are ever expanding.  As the list of Portable Oxygen Concentrators continues to grow, the biggest winner is the oxygen user and the people who love them.  Now, more than ever, oxygen therapy patients have choices that allow freedom and mobility.  No longer does an oxygen patient’s lifestyle need to be governed by large stationary oxygen concentrators or limited by liquid oxygen refills.

Portable oxygen concentrators make traveling easier for people needing medical oxygen. Regulations, however, make it necessary to plan ahead to ensure that you meet the requirements of your airline carrier.

Although some portable oxygen concentrators have been approved by the FAA for use on a plane, you should still check with your airline to find out if they have any specific requirements and to notify them that you will be traveling with your oxygen concentrator. Likewise, cruise lines and rail carriers may also have specific regulations regarding your oxygen equipment and should be consulted well in advance of your travel date.
