Heading Towards Warmer Weather?

No matter what corner of the country you reside in, by now the winter has taken its toll, and everyone is looking well ahead to Spring. If you haven’t already, you can escape to warmer weather and sunnier skies and leave the winter of 2013 in the dust!

Inogen One makes traveling with oxygen a breeze. Each member of the Inogen One family of oxygen concentrators is lightweight and small. The Inogen One G3 system weighs 4.8 pounds, about the weight of a half-gallon of milk. It is 8.75 inches long, 3 inches wide, and 8.25 inches tall, which makes it compact for carrying. In addition, concentrators come with a carry bag with a strap.

Additional accessories also make it easy for the winter-weary traveler to escape. A DC Power Cable can be brought along to charge in a car. As for the batteries themselves, a single lithium ion battery lasts up to 4 hours, and a double lithium ion battery lasts up to 9 hours. Depending on the length of your trip, you will need any combination of battery and charger to ensure your concentrator is up and running for the duration.

All Inogen One portable oxygen concentrators are approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for in-flight use on flights starting or stopping in the US. However it is still recommended that you contact your airline for any specific requirements and read through our air travel checklist before your flight.  Inogen One concentrators are also approved for long train rides.

Cold weather can limit a lot of activity, so if you’re looking to break out of that winter spell a little early on a trip, be sure to do the following:

1. Inform your doctor

2. Ask the commercial travel companies, if you’re using one,  if a letter from a doctor is necessary

3. Make sure the total time of the trip (flights, buses, layovers) does not exceed the amount of oxygen supply you’re bringing. Sometimes people just consider a flight time or train time without all that “extra” time.

 

It’s been a long winter for everyone. Congratulations on ending it a little early and taking full advantage of the freedom and mobility that Inogen One allows you.
