Approved Portable Oxygen Concentrators List Up to 21

FAA's final rule adding seven models to the list will take effect Oct. 31.

Airline passengers who require medical oxygen soon will have a total of 21 approved portable oxygen concentrator models from which to choose. Effective Oct. 31, a Federal Aviation Administration final rule adds seven portable oxygen concentrator models to the agency's approved list. The newly authorized devices are the AirSep Focus, AirSep FreeStyle 5, Inogen One G3, Inova Labs LifeChoice Activox, Respironics Simply Go, Precision Medical EasyPulse, and the SeQual SAROS.

Portable oxygen concentrators are portable devices that provide oxygen to users at greater than 90 percent concentration. They do not use compressed or liquid oxygen, which the government classifies as hazardous material. DOT requires U.S. airlines and foreign air carriers flying into the United States to allow passengers to use the FAA-approved during all phases of a flight if the units display a manufacturer's label indicating they meet FAA requirements, but it also encourages airlines to voluntarily allow oxygen concentrators even if they are not labeled because they pose no safety danger.

FAA also is working on performance-based standards that will apply to all oxygen concentrator manufacturers and models.
