Products: LifeStyle and FreeStyle
Two POCs by AirSep Corp have set high patient mobility standards in more than 100 countries around the world. LifeStyle, the industry’s first POC, is a less-than-10-pound economical solution for providers who wish to offer increased ambulation opportunities for their working, highly active, and traveling patients. AirSep LifeStyle is available with an optional PowerPack for increased battery time, and an optional custom cart with telescopic handle for easy movement.
As a “wearable” POC, FreeStyle provides a lightweight 4.4-pound alternative with battery duration from 2 to 31/2 hours between recharges. Its optional AirBelt extends battery life up to 10 hours, depending on pulse-flow setting. AirSep POCs operate on multiple power sources, including AC household electric, 12-volt DC for automobiles, and rechargeable battery. Even solar-powered applications are feasible with this versatility. FreeStyle combines “fashion and function” in one compact, easy-to-carry unit that can be ordered with optional designer-styled carrying cases and matching AirBelts. Both AirSep concentrators have the FAA’s clearance for use on commercial airlines. AirSep’s Web site offers an extensive list of airline approvals. AirSep’s new CareFree program assists oxygen patients with worry-free travel.

OxyView is the world’s first patient in-line flow-meter that provides a visual signal for gas flow through a conduit. More particularly, it provides a visual cue to the flow of gas through a cannula, which conventionally employs very low pressure and gas volume to a patient using the OxyView. The device is adapted to be engaged between the nose/mouth-mounted cannula, to which compressed air is delivered through a flexible conduit. It delivers an easily read confirmation of actual continuous flow and of volume of oxygen. OxyView is more advanced and more accurate than conventional flow meters, which typically employ a ball that translates up and down and is dependent on gravity, and must maintain a vertical position for accuracy and functionality.
OxyView is patient friendly and can quickly be mounted “in-line” anywhere between the regulator and patient mask or breathing section of the cannula. Most important, the oxygen source, such as a concentrator, respiratory equipment, CPAP, or gas/liquid cylinder, can be placed at any distance from the patient since OxyView can be mounted close to the patient and in-line with the oxygen tubing. OxyView can quickly verify to the patient/caregiver the correct oxygen flow, leaks, or malfunction in the regulator or respiratory equipment. OxyView is the new generation of pneumatic safety devices needed in the growing oxygen therapy market.

Product: Inogen One
Inogen offers the Inogen One, an oxygen therapy technology designed to eliminate scheduled deliveries and the associated costs of coordinating patient travel, thereby reducing reimbursement pressure. Inogen One emphasizes single-solution, cost-effective respiratory home health care equipment, improving patient care as well as operational efficiency for providers. Inogen was founded in 2001 to develop products that improve quality of life and increase freedom and mobility for respiratory disease sufferers, predominantly COPD patients. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, and the only major disease with an ever-increasing death rate.
Supplemental oxygen reduces the symptoms of the disease and extends life expectancy of patients with COPD. Despite the clear benefits of oxygen in extending life and maintaining health, many patients find it difficult to comply with therapy because available therapy devices inhibit their ability to lead an active life. Meeting the needs of today’s more ambulatory patient is straining the resources of many respiratory care providers. Inogen is developing a line of lightweight, all-purpose oxygen therapy devices that effectively integrate into patients’ lifestyles and allow providers to improve operating profits. Inogen’s team is passionate about their mission and committed to serving the unique needs of respiratory patients and providers.
