Using the Inogen One G4 Portable Oxygen Concentrator
Inogen One G4 is battery powered with a choice of battery sizes – the standard single battery (i.e. 4 cell battery) has up to 3 hours of operation time when fully charged and a double battery (i.e. 8 cell battery) gives up to 6 hours of operation time from fully charged. The batteries recharge, when the battery is installed in the Inogen One G4 unit and the device is connected to AC or DC power source. Recharging time is circa 3.25 hours for a single battery and 6 hours for a double battery.
When used with AC power source, the concentrator automatically adapts to input voltage of between 100 V - 240 V (50-60 Hz), making the Inogen One G4 usable throughout the world. The DC power cable is designed to connect directly to cigarette lighters in cars or to auxiliary DC power supplies.
Easy to use and reliable, the Inogen One G4 Portable Oxygen Concentrator dispenses oxygen anytime and anywhere at the turn of a button. There are 3 oxygen flow control settings that can control the flow easily with control buttons (+ and -) from 1 – 3 litres per minute. Operating in the normal mode, the G4 concentrator delivers fixed volume of oxygen defined by the oxygen flow setting you have selected.
Equipped with Breath Detection Alert Mode (i.e. automatic mode), the Inogen One G4 gives audible and visual warning signals, if no breath is detected for 60 seconds, whilst continuing to deliver oxygen at a fixed rate of 17 bursts of oxygen per minute (i.e. 17 bolus per minute) until breathing is detected. Upon detection of breathing, the device switches back to the normal mode and dispenses oxygen upon inspiration via the nose at a fixed volume of oxygen determined by the oxygen flow setting (i.e. settings 1 – 3 / 1 – 3 litres per minute) selected by the user.
When the nasal cannula is positioned on your face and you breathe through the nose, the Inogen One G4 senses the onset of your inhalation and dispenses a burst of oxygen precisely at the time of your nasal inspiration. Thereafter, the Inogen One G4 senses each of your breaths and continues to deliver oxygen in perfect harmony with your breathing. As the Inogen One G4 senses and monitors your breathing patterns throughout its operation, it delivers oxygen accordingly, even if your breath becomes irregular.
Display screen displays information about flow setting, power status, battery life and errors detected. There is backlight for easy reading, which illuminates the screen for 15 seconds, when on/off button is pressed. A yellow indicator light and a beep indicate changes in operating status or an arising condition that requires your action.
