Oxygen Concentrator Purchase Guide for Veterinary Clinics

At Vetamac, we understand the critical role oxygen plays in providing high-quality medical care to animals in veterinary clinics. To assist you in selecting the most suitable oxygen concentrator for your clinic's needs, we have built a comprehensive guide to help you make an informed purchasing decision:

Demystifying Oxygen Concentrators

An oxygen concentrator is a medical device that extracts oxygen from the surrounding air and delivers it to the patient at higher concentrations than what is found in ambient air. It works by taking in air from the environment, removing nitrogen and other gases, and concentrating the oxygen before delivering it through a nasal cannula or mask to the patient.

Oxygen concentrators are commonly used in various medical settings, including hospitals, clinics, and home care environments, to provide supplemental oxygen therapy for patients with respiratory conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, or respiratory failure.

Choose the Oxygen Concentrator That Fits Your Needs:

Select between the 10 LPM and 5 LPM models based on your equipment's requirements and the range of procedures performed at your clinic. The 10 LPM model is well-suited for larger animals and procedures necessitating higher oxygen flow rates. Additionally, the 10 LPM concentrator is suitable for use with multiple anesthesia machines and a ventilator that relies on oxygen. On the other hand, the 5 LPM model offers versatility for a wide range of clinical applications, such as use with a single anesthesia machine. By choosing the appropriate concentrator, you ensure that your clinic's oxygen supply meets the demands of your practice effectively and efficiently.
