The differences between nasal breathing and mouth breathing are as follows:Transnasal breathing: under normal circumstances, it is transnasal breathing. The nasal cavity is an important breathing channel, which can warm and humidify the external air, and the external air can...

Nowadays,¬†for¬†safety¬†reasons,¬†people¬†prefer¬†to¬†travel¬†by¬†car¬†rather¬†than¬†by¬†plane.¬†If¬†you¬†visit¬†relatives,¬†run¬†errands,¬†or¬†even¬†travel¬†a¬†lot,¬†you¬†drive¬†there,¬†but¬†how¬†do¬†you¬†travel¬†with¬†a¬†portable¬†oxygen¬†concentrator¬†(POC)? Fortunately,¬†portable¬†oxygen¬†concentrators¬†come¬†in¬†all¬†shapes¬†and¬†sizes.¬†Some¬†are¬†even¬†as¬†light¬†as¬†3.4¬†pounds!¬†Traveling¬†with¬†supplemental¬†oxygen¬†should¬†not¬†be¬†a¬†difficult¬†or¬†stressful¬†experience.¬†Today,¬†POC¬†is¬†equipped¬†with¬†a¬†large¬†number¬†of¬†useful¬†and¬†convenient¬†concentrator¬†accessories,¬†such¬†as a suitcase,¬†trolley,¬†backpack,¬†car¬†power¬†supply, and¬†so¬†on,¬†making¬†driving¬†easier! Although¬†it's¬†easy¬†to¬†jump¬†with¬†a¬†portable¬†oxygen¬†device,¬†there¬†are¬†still¬†some¬†tips¬†and¬†guidelines¬†to¬†help¬†you¬†be¬†relaxed¬†and¬†safe¬†on your¬†next¬†car¬†trip¬†using¬†oxygen!¬†Read¬†on¬†and¬†learn¬†about¬†our¬†four¬†tips¬†for¬†using¬†POC¬†in¬†the¬†car! 1. Do¬†Not¬†Leave¬†Your¬†Unit¬†in¬†the¬†Car Extreme¬†temperature One¬†of¬†our¬†most¬†important¬†suggestions,¬†especially¬†in¬†warm¬†months,¬†is¬†not¬†to¬†leave¬†the¬†concentrator¬†in¬†the¬†car!¬†The¬†working¬†temperature¬†rises¬†to¬†about¬†104¬†degrees; however,¬†the¬†temperature¬†inside¬†the¬†car¬†can¬†easily¬†exceed¬†that¬†of¬†many¬†popular¬†resorts¬†such¬†as¬†Las¬†Vegas¬†and¬†Phoenix.¬†POC¬†is¬†considered¬†to¬†be¬†an¬†electronic¬†product,¬†which¬†is¬†difficult¬†to¬†work¬†at¬†temperatures¬†above¬†104¬†¬ļ¬†F.¬†High¬†temperatures can¬†easily¬†damage¬†the¬†circuit¬†in¬†the¬†device. The¬†same¬†is¬†true¬†in¬†cold¬†temperatures.¬†When¬†the¬†temperature¬†is¬†lower¬†than¬†41¬†¬ļ¬†F,¬†the¬†portable¬†oxygen¬†generator¬†will¬†be¬†difficult¬†to¬†use.¬†Don't¬†leave¬†POC¬†in¬†the¬†car¬†when¬†it¬†should¬†be¬†cold. Lithium-ion¬†battery Equally¬†important¬†is¬†the¬†battery¬†in¬†your¬†unit.¬†The¬†portable¬†oxygen¬†generator¬†battery¬†is¬†a¬†lithium-ion¬†battery,¬†which¬†means¬†that¬†high¬†temperatures will¬†erode¬†the¬†efficiency¬†of¬†the¬†battery,¬†and¬†the¬†charging¬†capacity¬†of¬†the¬†battery¬†will¬†decrease¬†over¬†time.¬†The¬†same¬†is¬†true¬†in¬†cold¬†temperatures.¬†If¬†the¬†concentrator¬†is¬†exposed¬†to¬†extreme¬†conditions,¬†the¬†machine¬†must¬†be¬†restored¬†to¬†the¬†correct¬†operating¬†temperature¬†before¬†continuing¬†to¬†use. Theft Unfortunately,¬†we¬†often¬†hear¬†stories¬†from¬†patients¬†that¬†their¬†concentrators¬†were¬†stolen¬†from¬†their¬†cars.¬†POC¬†is¬†a¬†valuable piece of equipment,¬†which¬†should¬†be¬†taken¬†with¬†you¬†when¬†you¬†are¬†not¬†at¬†home¬†and¬†placed¬†in¬†the¬†line¬†of¬†sight.¬†Suitcases,¬†backpacks, and¬†portable¬†trolleys¬†can¬†help¬†you¬†comfortably¬†put¬†the¬†concentrator¬†within¬†reach¬†without¬†limiting¬†your¬†freedom. 2.¬†Don't¬†smoke! Smoking¬†while¬†breathing¬†oxygen¬†is¬†the¬†leading¬†cause¬†of¬†fire¬†injuries¬†and¬†related¬†deaths.¬†Do¬†not¬†smoke,¬†use¬†candles, or¬†have¬†any¬†other¬†open¬†flames¬†in¬†vehicles¬†equipped¬†with¬†oxygen¬†concentrators¬†or¬†oxygen-carrying accessories.¬†Smoking¬†while¬†wearing an oxygen¬†cannula¬†may¬†cause¬†facial¬†burns¬†and¬†even¬†death.¬†Ensure¬†that¬†the¬†sleeve¬†is¬†not¬†removed¬†and¬†placed¬†on¬†any¬†clothing,¬†mat, or¬†other¬†flammable¬†material¬†during¬†the¬†use¬†of¬†the¬†machine. If¬†you¬†must¬†smoke,¬†please¬†follow¬†the¬†following¬†three¬†steps¬†to¬†ensure¬†your¬†safety 1.¬†Turn¬†off¬†the¬†device. 2.¬†Remove¬†the¬†casing 3.¬†Leave¬†the¬†room¬†where¬†your¬†car¬†or¬†oxygen¬†equipment¬†is¬†located 3.¬†Store¬†your¬†equipment¬†safely Proper¬†storage When¬†driving,¬†if¬†possible,¬†it¬†is¬†best¬†to¬†place¬†the¬†device¬†on¬†the¬†floor¬†on¬†the¬†passenger's¬†side¬†of the¬†seat,¬†but¬†make¬†sure¬†that¬†the¬†device¬†is¬†fully¬†fixed,¬†buckled, and¬†will¬†not¬†move¬†or¬†cause¬†distraction¬†when¬†driving. Stay¬†free¬†and¬†clear...
