Does anyone here have sufficient experience with O2 concentrators to comment on pulse vs continuous flow machines?
My wife recently bought a 20LPM machine from china, The specs all looked good and even with shipping and import duties to Croatia it was still a good value, especially here in Europe. We both have lived in China so are not intimidated by the very different way of doing business, seemed like a good idea.
It arrived yesterday and turns out to be a pulse flow model, it delivers pulses when the “patient” breathes in rather than a continuous flow. Not being in the medical industry, I didn’t even know such a beast existed.
It’ll be a few days before I can collect all the parts to gang all 4 output channels into the single torch input, but listening to it run it seems like it can’t possibly provide more than a fraction of what I was expecting.
Anyone have experience with these? Are they even suitable for torch needs? I found nothing about the topic online in a search.
I’m finding that in the jewelry and glass industries, there is a reasonable knowledge of a very narrow set of use cases and it’s easy to step off that path. Perhaps we can flush the knowledge base out a bit here on Orchid.
