The portable oxygen concentrator Inogen One G5 is indicated for patients with the following diseases:
Disorders and acute diseases
- Severe pneumonia. Pneumonia is the infection of one or both lungs. If severe, causes deep inflammation of the alveoli, so that they can not exchange a sufficient amount of oxygen with the blood.
- Severe asthma attacks. Asthma is a lung disease that inflames and does restrict the bronchi. The majority of patients who suffer of asthma, including many children, is able to manage the symptoms safely, however, if asthma attacks are severe, the patient may need admission to hospital for oxygen therapy.
- Respiratory distress syndrome or bronchopulmonary dysplasia in premature infants. Premature infants may suffer from one or both of these serious lung diseases. As part of the therapy, may receive oxygen through a fan or a mask nasal continuous positive pressure, or via nasal cannula.
Disorders and chronic diseases
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). COPD is a progressive disease in which the injury to the alveoli prevents the passage of a sufficient amount of oxygen in the blood. The adjective “progressive” means that the disease tends to get worse with the passage of time.
- Severe heart failure. In this disorder, the heart is unable to pump a sufficient amount of oxygen-rich blood to meet the body’s needs.
- Cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is a hereditary disease of the exocrine glands, including those that produce mucus and sweat. In patients suffering from cystic fibrosis, airways fill with thick, sticky mucus, which facilitates the growth of bacteria, causing severe and recurrent lung infections. With the passage of time, infections can severely damage the lungs.
- Sleep-related breathing disorders that are lowering the level of oxygen during sleep, such as sleep apnea.
- Cluster headache. is a primary neurovascular headache extremely painful Is recurrent, with active phases alternate with periods of spontaneous remission. These active phases are called “clusters”.
High oxygen output
A big advantage of the Inogen One G5 is that it has 6 oxygen settings, 1 more than the Inogen One G3. Every setting compares to roughly 1 liter of oxygen per minute, making the G5 very powerful. You can easily set the concentrator to the appropriate setting by pressing the + and – buttons on the control panel.
