Christmas Travel Made Easy – 2017

MEDICAL OXYGEN SHOULDN’T KEEP YOU AWAY FROM CHRISTMAS DINNER THIS YEAR.

Inogen One, Inogen, Inogen One G4, G4, Inogen G4, Inogen G4 coffeecupChristmas is right around the corner, and Inogen One oxygen concentrators make it easier than ever to get you where you need to go on Monday, December 25th. In years past, you may have had to stay put because an oxygen tank was too heavy and cumbersome to travel with. This may have meant spending the holiday away from loved ones. Or maybe Christmas had to be at your house. That means cleaning beforehand, cooking during, and cleaning afterwards. God bless you if you enjoy that, but if you are looking for a more relaxing way to spend the holiday this year, we urge you to take your oxygen concentrator on the go.

Christmas Travel with Oxygen Therapy

All Inogen One oxygen concentrators are small and lightweight. The latest in the product line, the G4 system weighs 2.8 pounds, less than a small bag of coffee beans. It is 5.91 inches long, 2.68 inches wide and 7.2 inches tall. The Inogen One G4 delivers the independence of a portable oxygen concentrator in one of the smallest, lightest, and quietest packages available to the oxygen user today.

Included with the concentrator is a Carry Bag with a protective cover and a shoulder strap for transporting. The G4 is a single solution system, intended for on-the-go as well as stationary use.

The DC Power Cable makes the Inogen One G4 extremely portable. Stay charged all during your car ride to ensure that you have full battery power upon arrival. If you’re planning on traveling by plane or train, the G4 is suitable for travel and will fit with you comfortably in your seat.

This December, millions of Americans will give thanks for freedom.  We are thankful that we are able to provide users of medical oxygen with the freedom and independence to travel; to do what you want, when you want. Medical oxygen doesn’t have to be a burden on you or your family members this Christmas. Grab your oxygen concentrator, carry bag, and car charger, and enjoy Christmas from anywhere you please.

    How long would the oxygen last for? I'm moving my father in law from AZ to CA its a 6 to 7 hours trip. Would this work? Do you take insurance?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Theresa, If you are plugged into a power source you will not run out of oxygen. By using the DC car power adapter, an Inogen oxygen user will never run out of oxygen, no matter what the length of the trip. Right now the Inogen One G4 portable oxygen concentrator (POC) is not covered by insurance. Some of our Inogen POCs are covered by insurance but it depends on the POC, the insurance provider, and how long the patient has been on oxygen. An Oxygen Specialist can check your insurance and go over all your options with you. Please call an Oxygen Specialist at 1-800-374-9038 to learn more.

    if i am flying coast to coast or overseas airline require oxygen 150% of flight time. how long will the oxygen last with the battery included?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Michael, The amount of time that the battery will last will depend on what concentrator you are using, what battery you're using, and what flow setting you are on. The Inogen One G4 on a flow setting of 2, while using the single battery will last up to 2.7 hours. If you are using a double battery on the Inogen One G4, on a flow setting of 2, you could have up to 5 hours.

      On the Inogen One G3, on a flow setting of 2, on a single battery you will get up to 4.7 hours of battery time; on a double battery you will get up to 10 hours.

      On the Inogen One G2, on a flow setting of 2, on a single battery you will get up to 5 hours of battery time; on a double battery you will get up to 10 hours.

      Please keep in mind that battery time depends on the user's flow settings and the life of the battery. Depending on the time of your flight, you may want to bring extra batteries on your flight.

      Please consult your doctor before flying to ensure that you are fit for travel and that you are using an appropriate flow setting.

    My daughter is moving to England & she wants me to be able to come over to visit. I am in Virginia & she says the flight time is about 7 hours, plus the time waiting for the flight. What kind of oxygen would I need? I use 3 liters at home & shopping. I'm on 3 liters at home & around our apartments. Please give me some ideas on sizes, prices & anything that would be helpful. Does medicare & Mutual of Omaha cover any part of it? I use portable tanks when out of my home.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Barbara, Our portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) create oxygen on their own so you do not need to worry about tanks or bottles. Inogen One POCs use battery power so you would need to have additional batteries that are charged up and easy to get to in your bag. The Inogen One G3 has flow settings 1-5 and on a flow setting of 2, a double battery can last up to 10 hours. Depending on your medicare coverage, the region you live in, and how long you've been on oxygen the Inogen One G3 may or may not be covered by Medicare or your private insurance carrier. An Oxygen Specialist can check your Medicare and private insurance and can go over your purchase options if necessary. Please call an Oxygen Specialist at 1-800-374-9038 to learn more.

    Are portable oxygen tanks able to be rented?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Jackie, Are you interested in a temporary oxygen therapy solution or more of a long-term oxygen solution? Please call an Oxygen Specialist at 1-800-374-9038 so that they can discuss your needs and go over all the options available to you. We do not sell oxygen tanks but some of our portable oxygen concentrators may be available to be rented to you through your insurance. An Oxygen Specialist can check your insurance and determine what might work for your oxygen therapy needs.

    Do you need special paper work to take your Inogen on the airplane

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Carol, Before you travel with a portable oxygen concentrator meeting FAA guidelines, you must obtain a signed statement from your physician that includes details about: your ability to see/hear alarms and respond appropriately, when oxygen use is necessary (all or a portion of the trip), and maximum flow rate corresponding to the pressure in the cabin under normal operating conditions.
