If you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), you’re probably well aware of what it’s like to have a busy schedule. From making it to the doctor’s office, to attending pulmonary rehabilitation, and managing all the nuances of daily life, it can be hard to catch a break. One of the things that can make this even harder is having an old outdated oxygen device that can make the simplest tasks seem impossible.
Since around 800,000 COPD patients in the United States are on long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT), it’s important for these people to have access to portable, easy-to-use, and affordable oxygen therapy devices. Oxygen tanks have long been the industry standard, but they are bulky, heavy, and have to be refilled constantly. Fortunately, here at LPT Medical, we have a better alternative — portable oxygen concentrators.
Unlike oxygen tanks that contain compressed oxygen, portable oxygen concentrators are electronic devices that run off of powerful lithium-ion batteries. Using similar technology to that found in computers and smartphones, oxygen manufacturers can make these devices lighter and more compact than ever before. The Inogen One G5, for example, is one of our most popular units and it weighs in at just 4.7 pounds. That’s light enough to carry around on your shoulder all-day without it causing back or shoulder pain.
When you contact our respiratory specialists here in our Denver office, we’ll take a comprehensive approach to find the best unit for you. First and foremost, we’ll make sure that your oxygen needs are met; then we’ll begin narrowing down your options based on your lifestyle, preferences, and budget. While Medicare considers portable oxygen concentrators to be “luxury devices,” we couldn’t disagree more. They’re a medical necessity for many people, and we take pride in putting them in the hands of any and all respiratory patients who need them.
As a family-owned and operated business, we’re committed to serving our customers with unmatched quality and dependability. We are happy to ship nationwide, but our doors are always open if you live in the area and want to speak with us in person.
