The e2 is the only oxygen concentrator of its kind on the market today. It draws in room air and separates oxygen from the air utilizing the Pressure Swing Absorption process and creates medical grade oxygen for the patient. The e2 Oxygen Concentrator compresses the medical grade oxygen to 60 PSI and stores the oxygen in a reservoir for supply on demand.
Once the reservoir pressure builds to 60 PSI, the compressor shuts down and enters Power Saving Mode. As the e2 Oxygen Concentrator requires oxygen, it supplies a regulated steady flow of oxygen at 50 PSI. As the reservoir is depleted, the compressor energizes and starts the process over.
Oxygen concentrators were invented in the early 1970s for use in the human home health-care industry for patients with various medical conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, bronchitis, etc. Manufacturing output of these devices increased later that decade. Prior to that, home medical oxygen therapy required the use of heavy high-pressure oxygen cylinders or small cryogenic liquid oxygen systems. In the mid-1980s, Medicare switched to a flat monthly rate for home oxygen, causing the industry to rapidly embrace concentrators as a way to “control costs.” Oxygen concentrators became the preferred and most common means of delivering home oxygen. This brief history of oxygen concentrators is important information for the veterinary medical professional, as it closely follows suit with our industry.
