Patient Benefits

The Inogen One is a single solution for oxygen at home, away, and travel

The Inogen One portable oxygen concentrator (POC) is powerful enough to deliver the oxygen therapy your patients need while also being lightweight enough to go with them wherever they need to go.

Increases Survival

Supplemental oxygen, worn at least 15 hours a day [1], increases survival in some patients. And today’s portable oxygen technology allows you to utilize portable oxygen therapy 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anytime, anywhere.

Improves Exercise Tolerance

Studies show that using supplemental oxygen during exercise allows you to exercise longer, at a higher intensity, which means you’ll reap greater rewards for all your efforts.[2]

Improves Mental Alertness

Are you in a mental fog? When you’re not getting enough oxygen, every organ of your body is affected, including your brain. Confusion is the first sign that people with lung disease may not be getting enough oxygen. [3] Using supplemental oxygen keeps your brain, and all your other vital organs, healthy.

A Better Night’s Sleep

Oxygen saturation levels tend to drop during sleep, even in people with healthy lungs. When you have COPD or another chronic lung disease, transient nocturnal desaturation may interfere with a restful night’s sleep and lead to some pretty significant health problems. [4] If your sleep patterns are frequently disrupted, talk to your doctor about having an overnight oximetry test. You may benefit from supplemental oxygen during sleep, which will help you get the rest you need.

Improves Mood

Studies show that oxygen therapy is associated with an improvement in cognition, performance and mood—and can even boost your self-esteem. [5]

Increases Stamina

If you have little energy to get through the day, it may be because your oxygen levels are low. [6] Oxygen therapy gives you the stamina you need to carry out normal, everyday functions such as getting dressed, cleaning house, preparing a meal and taking the dog for a walk.

Technology-Assisted

Bluetooth app helps patients keep track of battery level and maintenance needs.

Easy Maintenance

Replaceable and user-friendly sieve beds eliminate scheduled maintenance.
