Many people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) need extra oxygen. Some are anxious about traveling with oxygen tanks, though, so they stay home instead of enjoying time away.
While many people do take tanks of compressed oxygen when traveling, there’s another choice. Portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) take air from the room and convert it into concentrated oxygen. Most are lightweight, compact, and unlike traditional tanks, do not need refilling.
