If you have been researching portable oxygen concentrators, you may have noticed that many of the latest models incorporate a number of different technological features. So how do these features benefit you as an oxygen user and improve your respiratory health? Let’s take a look. 

How Technology Improves Your Oxygen Experience

Many of the latest portable oxygen concentrators now offer a variety of integrated technological features to provide more effective supplemental oxygen delivery and helpful information to oxygen users. Many models feature Bluetooth® technology that allows you to use any of your supported mobile devices to monitor a variety of information about your portable oxygen concentrator and your oxygen use. These Bluetooth medical devices can give you essential information right on your phone or tablet, and may also allow you to access important documents, updates or specific part information to help you keep your portable oxygen concentrator working properly. 

Technological Features Offered with Your Inogen One G4 and G5

Inogen has always been committed to improving the oxygen therapy experience for our customers, and incorporating certain technology makes that even easier. While all of our oxygen concentrators are technologically innovative, our Inogen One G4 and G5 Portable Oxygen Concentrators offer several additional technology features to improve your supplemental oxygen experience and allow you to get the most out of your portable oxygen concentrator with bluetooth. Let’s take a closer look at the integrated technologies in the Inogen One G4 and Inogen One G5 and explore how these features can improve your quality of life on oxygen therapy. 

Intelligent Delivery Technology®

One of the challenges of oxygen therapy is ensuring that oxygen is delivered effectively no matter when it is being used. The way you breathe changes throughout the day and, as a result, so do your oxygen needs. The amount of oxygen you need while exercising and breathing quickly is different from the amount of oxygen you need while sleeping soundly and breathing slowly. Many oxygen delivery devices do not change the way oxygen is delivered, regardless of the way your oxygen needs vary. Inogen is different. 

All of our Inogen One models offer our proprietary Intelligent Delivery Technology®, which ensures that oxygen therapy is delivered effectively and efficiently in all modes of use. What that means is that the Inogen One responds to physiological changes as your respiratory rate changes while you sleep, exercise or rest. Our Inogen One Portable Oxygen Concentrators adjust the bolus size delivered to ensure that you get the amount of oxygen you need, regardless of the frequency or depth of your breathing. Moreover, our Intelligent Delivery Technology ensures that oxygen is delivered to you within the first 400 milliseconds of inspiration. This is the period of time during which oxygen has the greatest effect on the gas exchange within the lungs. Inogen One oxygen systems feature unparalleled triggering sensitivity to detect a breath as quickly as possible and deliver oxygen to you within this critical time period to help ensure that your oxygen therapy is as effective as possible. As a result of this technology, the Inogen One’s oxygen delivery system has been clinically validated by 5 clinical studies to provide the necessary supplemental oxygen for most ambulatory patients during all modes of use, including sleep. 

Bluetooth Capability and the Inogen Connect App

More and more Bluetooth medical devices are appearing on the market, because it allows users to better monitor the functionality of their devices and gives users access to important information. This can be particularly helpful for supplemental oxygen users, as the functionality of their oxygen delivery device is of the utmost importance.
Inogen recognized this need and incorporated Bluetooth technology into our most recent Inogen One models. The Inogen One G4 and Inogen One G5 are both portable oxygen concentrators with Bluetooth, which allows them to be connected to our free Inogen Connect App. The Inogen Connect App allows you to monitor your oxygen, and your Inogen One G4 or G5, more closely through any supported device.

Technological Features Offer Peace of Mind to Oxygen Users

Technologically advanced devices may seem intimidating at first, but Inogen has worked hard to ensure that our technology is seamlessly integrated to offer superior performance that is easy to use.

While the Inogen Connect App is optional, it provides an incredible amount of information and accessibility to you, allowing you to get what you need in one place. One of the greatest benefits of using Bluetooth medical devices is the ability to customize your user experience. Using a portable oxygen concentrator with Bluetooth allows you to get a great deal of information quickly and easily on the device of your choosing.

Using Inogen Connect with your Inogen One Portable Oxygen Concentrator with Bluetooth, you can check your oxygen purity, battery life and flow settings with a quick look at your phone. This can provide profound peace of mind to someone who has previously struggled with an older oxygen delivery device. Additionally, since the Inogen Connect App allows you access to valuable information like user manuals and maintenance reminders, you have all the information you need, no matter where you go. This is especially helpful for people who travel frequently and want quick access, regardless of where they are. With Inogen Connect, you can get the information you need, when you need it, and monitor your oxygen anytime and anywhere.
