Family 1st has more than 30 Oxygen Exchange Centres located across Nova Scotia where you can exchange your empty cylinders.
Portable oxygen systems give patients the freedom and flexibility to participate in everyday activities that are restricted by home oxygen systems.
The lightweight cylinders or portable concentrators are carried in a compact bag, allowing for increased mobility and enhancing lifestyle.
Conventional oxygen systems deliver a continuous flow of oxygen, wasting gas when the patient exhales. These units are also heavy and awkward to carry.
What is an Oxygen Conservation Device and how does it work?
The Oxygen Conservation Device (OCD) portable systems sense each breath and deliver oxygen only when the patient inhales. Oxygen is conserved making tanks last 3-5 times longer.
This lightweight, easy to carry system can be rented or purchased.
