The FDA and FAA have approved POCs for adults only at this time. However, your physician may approve the Inogen One for “off label use” for minors. Please discuss this with your physician. You may need to find another method to secure oxygen during travel. If your physician has questions about use, please have them contact us.
The Federal Aviation Administration has approved POCs for use onboard aircraft.
Effective May 13th of 2009 every US air carrier must permit the use of approved portable oxygen concentrator (POC) devices on all domestic and international flights.
This is also true for foriegn carriers but only on flights departing or returning to US soil. (see page 27615 on the link below for definition and examples of "flight")
A POC provides inhalation only oxygen flow up to 6 liters per minute (LPM). If you require more than 6 LPM or continuous flow, especially while sleeping, you will need a different solution.
If not, you need to call your doctor for a prescription. Should you already use Oxygen and you cannot obtain a rewritten prescription in time for your rental period, please contact us.
We rent several different models of portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) for periods from a week to months. Every rental includes 24-hour access to respiratory therapists and board-certified physicians. And we can deliver these units to you FAST!
Did you know? With the FAA ruling, airlines require that you must have 150% of your flight time in battery time. So with a six hour flight, you would need nine hours of battery time. Call us with any questions at 877-736-8691
David and Jimmy (and O2Go Staff),
I wanted to say THANK YOU again — you have been amazing! All my concerns, late phone calls and many, many questions have been addressed until I was 100% satisfied with the answers (which on many occasions took awhile! LOL). Our trip went perfectly — the Sequal performed fantastic! And most of all our lil’ guy was safe in your hands. So here comes a “pat on the back” from accross the miles. Thank you for all you do!David and Jimmy (and O2Go Staff)
