Working Process of Medical Oxygen Generator

1. Introduction

Medical oxygen generator, one of the most powerful medical gases, has been designed to produce medical oxygen, which is highly pure and has an oxygen purity of 93%-95%. This medical gas has been designed to meet the requirements of the European Pharmacopoeia for medical gases as well as ISO standards 7396-1:2016 for pipeline systems for medical gases and 13485:2016 for quality management.

2. What is a medical oxygen generator?

Oxygen is a life-sustaining gas, used to support breathing and metabolism. It is the most common gas in the human body and is necessary for every person to breathe.
A medical oxygen generator is a device for generating oxygen from the air, which has an oxygen purity of 93%-95%, meets the requirements of the European Pharmacopoeia for medical gases as well as ISO standards 7396-1:2016 for pipeline systems for medical gases and 13485:2016 for quality management.
The presence of this device at a certain place in the hospital can be used to improve the patient’s health. It has been shown that it can reduce mortality in patients who had undergone heart surgery, brain surgery, or trauma. It can also help patients who had received severe diseases such as cancer, severe burns, or cardiac disease. If a patient needs intensive care at home then it may be necessary to use special machines or machines that produce large amounts of oxygen but they are expensive and require special maintenance tools so that they will provide sufficient oxygen supply.
We have developed different types of medical oxygen generators with different output power, and our generators are available worldwide from various suppliers; these generators are designed not only to produce pure oxygen but also to have high output power per liter when compared with other generators. Our generators are mainly used in hospitals, intensive care units (ICUs), long-term care facilities (LTCF), geriatric wards, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers.

3. How does a medical oxygen generator work?

Oxygen is a critical lifesaving commodity for patients with respiratory distress, but as with any other medical device, oxygen delivery is an issue. Unlike the old days when we had to get it from a hospital or gas station, today’s medical oxygen generators are compact and portable, and they have little or no power requirements.
The world's first medical oxygen generator was invented by Dr. Jean-Claude Larcher in 1957 and received its patent in 1960. It was called the Larcher Device (it still exists today under the name of Larcher or LADB). The first design consisted of a series of chemical reactions between a fuel (oxygen) and a chemical catalyst (bis(2-hydroxy pyridine)). The catalyst acted as a catalyst for oxidation reactions like water splitting and carbon dioxide production; it also catalyzed chemical reactions like hydrolysis of organic compounds to generate compounds like nitrous oxide (N2O), carbon monoxide (CO), methane (CH4) from the decomposition of organic hydrocarbons, in situ oxidation of hydrogen sulfide to form water, etc.
The first commercially available medical oxygen generator was developed by Ciba-Geigy Corporation in 1969 and received its patent in 1971. It was called the Oxigen Generator (OG). It produced up to 20 liters/hour of medical oxygen at room temperature through a series of four small piezoelectric motors.
More new designs were invented over the years:

4. The benefits of using a medical oxygen generator

A medical oxygen generator (MOG) is an oxygen concentrator that is used for the administration of oxygen in a medical environment. MOGs can be used in hospitals, long-term care homes, and other such facilities.
They are different from ordinary oxygen generators which are primarily used for home use. In addition, MOGs have a higher safety factor than ordinary oxygen generators as they are able to supply more than 90% pure oxygen with only a minimal amount of by-products.
In this article, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using a medical oxygen generator (MOG), and the steps that need to be taken in order to make the right choice between medical oxygen generators and ordinary oxygen generators.

5. Conclusion

The first step in any healing process is to diagnose the problem. If you think you have a respiratory infection, your doctor will need to take a sample of your airways, lungs, and sinuses. The next step is to conduct a test for bacteria, viruses, and fungi. If these results are negative, then you can move on to the next step of treatment.
The same steps apply when working with medical oxygen generators. You need to diagnose the problem – there will be no cure without a diagnosis – and then look for a solution that meets your needs.
You might ask: what if I don’t have access to medical oxygen generators? What if I am an old person who does not enjoy using oxygen products?
The truth is, there are many products on the market today that claim they can produce medical or therapeutic oxygen from ambient air with little or no effort on the user’s part. They are typically sold at a significant premium over their competitors because they offer superior quality (and thus better value) than what their low-priced competitors provide. However, most of these oxygen generators do not meet ISO standards and do not meet applicable European Pharmacopoeia (EUP) standards either; moreover, they often do not produce enough medical or therapeutic oxygen for use as required by law in many countries due to poor quality of manufacturing and lack of adequate testing of their product before the sale as well as inadequate packaging materials.
Therefore they should be avoided unless you meet all three criteria: probably the best solution that meets your needs; you have access to it, and it is priced very reasonably (before discounts).
