In general, an oxygen concentrator device works by modifying the surrounding air to deliver more concentrated oxygen. This oxygen output is typically measured in liters per minute (l/min or LPM) for continuous oxygen flow and in milliliters (mL) for each bolus in pulse-mode oxygen delivery. As a result, an oxygen concentrator does not require to be refilled like an oxygen cylinder or tank, as it can produce its own oxygen. The oxygen is delivered to the patient through a nasal...
