Oxygen To Go Rental Checklist
Are you over 18 years of age?
The FDA and FAA have approved Portable Oxygen Concentrator Rental (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.
Are you using a travel service (airline, cruise line, etc.) that accepts portable oxygen concentrators (POCs)?
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”)
Can a portable oxygen concentrator satisfy your oxygen need?
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.
Do you have a prescription for oxygen treatment?
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.
