Oxygen concentrators can help in breathing issues caused by COVID-19
Should be used only under medical guidance and prescription
Here are the top 5 oxygen concentrator machines that you can get in India
The oxygen concentrator or an oxygen generator is a piece of medical equipment that can help a person suffering from oxygen shortage and is unable to breathe properly. Given that the Coronavirus attacks the respiratory system in the body, many people suffering from COVID-19 have breathing issues at the onset. Between getting immediate medical assistance and getting to a hospital, certain people might get a slight respite in breathing from an oxygen concentrator at home.
However, do note that an oxygen concentrator should only be used under medical supervision and prescription and is not a treatment for COVID-19. There are cases when a person’s oxygen levels drop below normal and they need immediate oxygen intake. At such times and only under a doctor’s guidance, the affected person can use an oxygen concentrator to improve the oxygen levels. A doctor may also recommend using an oxygen concentrator during a person’s recovery at home for low flow oxygen.
An oxygen concentrator or generator is a device that uses atmospheric air and works on electricity to filter oxygen for a person suffering from shortness of breath or breathing issues. Also, note that an oxygen concentrator is not a replacement for an oxygen cylinder and a doctor needs to consult before either of the equipment is used to administer oxygen. There are different types of oxygen concentrators available in India. Some of them are portable while high capacity ones are bulky and need to be kept at a place.
