Portable Oxygen

Family 1st has more than 30 Oxygen Exchange Centres located across Nova Scotia where you can exchange your empty cylinders.

Freedom of movement is yours once again!

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.

The Oxygen Conservation Device from Family 1st will change the way you live. For information on this system please get in touch 1-800-565-2021 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


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.
