Inogen has been dominating the Oxygen Concentrator industry for a long time. Their products like the Inogen One G3 and the Inogen One G5 are some of the best Oxygen Concentrators available on the market. Their strive for excellence did not stop there, however, and continued to race ahead of the competition with the Inogen at Home Stationary.
What is the Inogen at Home?
It is definitely one of the bigger products Inogen has ever released, but it’s still one of the most powerful Home Oxygen Concentrators ever made. It’s lightweight (compared to most Oxygen Concentrators of its class), quiet (40dBA), energy efficient, and light on the pocket. Inogen sure knows how to make quality Oxygen Concentrators that are not only efficient but easy on the budget.
Let’s start with the sound it emits. The noise level of the Inogen at Home is very low, not exceeding 40dBA at any given time. It allows oxygen patients to keep the machine running all night without being disturbed from sleep. You can barely hear it operating. The most you’ll hear from it is a quiet, almost soothing, humming that would either lull you to sleep or a sound you will eventually forget about.
Although it is not a small or light Oxygen Concentrator by Inogen’s standards, it still is quite a fierce competitor for both categories. It weighs around 18lbs (8.16kg), which easily makes it one of the lightest Oxygen Concentrators commercially available the market.
Its only mode is Continuous Flow with an oxygen delivery of 1-5LPM (5 settings) with a standard purity of 90% -3%/+6%. This may come as a surprise for some as Inogen products are usually exclusively Pulse Flow, but Inogen is always innovating their products to suit its customer’s needs whatever their preference may be.
Aside from that, the Inogen at Home has quite an ALARMING number of alarms. You probably won’t find this many alarms in any other Oxygen Concentrator on the market. It has an alarm for failing sensors, low oxygen flow, low oxygen concentration, a fire hazard alarm, a heating alarm, a cold alarm, etcetera, etcetera. The point is, it has an alarm for almost every single problem you can think of, thus keeping you up to date about the status of your machine at all times.
For those of you looking for a stationary Inogen product for Pulse Flow, you won’t find it here. The Inogen at Home is exclusively Continuous Flow, which can be disappointing to long-time Inogen users looking to purchase a more stationary Oxygen Concentrator.
What Customers are Saying
Oxygen therapy patients vouch for Inogen at Home and its quietness stating how easy it is to sleep even if the Oxygen Concentrator is running. The energy-efficiency is also very attractive to home-users. It allows them to run the Inogen at Home 24/7 without having to worry about their electricity bills skyrocketing. Some even declare that the Inogen at Home is the best stationary Oxygen Concentrators they have ever used.
