Best of 2021: Live Active 5 Portable Oxygen Concentrator

If you are new to the world of COPD therapy or have been undergoing treatment for any period of time, you must know about the Live Active 5 Portable Oxygen Concentrator [POC]. As the name of it suggests, it is designed for those who live active lifestyles. As a result, it is not only lightweight, but uses lithium batteries that last for 6 hours of runtime on a 2-hour charge. What’s more, its ergonomic design gives you freedom and independence since it can be worn across the body or even over the shoulder. It also has an easy Auto Breath safety feature, and a clear digital display so that you always know how much oxygen you are getting.

Pure Oxygen: Vacuum Pressure Swing Absorption

Like other POC’s on the market, the Live Active 5 is a pulse flow unit. However, what separates the Live Active 5 Portable Oxygen Concentrator from the rest of POC’s out there is that it utilizes Vacuum Pressure Swing Absorption [VPSA] technology. Yes, it does feature 1-5 pulse flow settings, but VPSA rejuvenates the sieve beds (that remove nitrogen from the air) so that oxygen purity is at a higher concentration for a longer period of time. The VPSA technology is superior to other products on the market because the less pressure is placed on the actual sieve bed. As a result, the Vacuum Pressure Swing Absorption technology reduces the need to replace sieve beds but also reduces the overall cost of the Live Active 5 Portable Oxygen Concentrator.

Energy Efficiency

Another advantage of VPSA is that it eliminates residual nitrogen and water vapors. In turn, no oxygen is wasted. This makes the Live Active 5 more energy efficient. Thus, it can operate normally in any temperature because it always runs cool. Therefore, it is less likely to overheat. What’s more, the simple top-loading lithium battery is easy to change, and easy to charge. The real advantage here is that the battery is so lightweight and full of lithium power that there is no longer the burden of having to carry a double battery.

Easy Carry

As mentioned above, there are a couple of different ways to wear the Live Active 5. You can either wear it in the traditional over the shoulder fashion, or wear it cross-body. The unit and bag together weigh only 5.5 pounds, so either way, it is comfortable to carry. Plus, the bag helps to keep the nasal cannula in place because of the offset design of the carry bag. Plus, the carry bag strap is cushioned with soft pads, which is designed to prevent shoulder and back pain.

Warranty

The Live Active 5 Portable Oxygen Concentrator comes with a 3-year device warranty. The sieve beds are warrantied for a year, and so is the battery.
