The FAA’s announcement about the SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator is a victory for patients because they can now fly without having to give up their otherwise active lifestyles
Centennial, CO (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
American Medical Sales and Repair (AMSR) is proud to announce the FAA has cleared the Philips Respironics SimplyGo for flight with its passengers who rely on portable oxygen. As of October 31, carriers are allowing passengers to use the SimplyGo system during flights. Not only is this beneficial for anyone who relies on these systems, but it is also the first approved portable oxygen concentrator allowed for use on commercial flights.
The guidelines are specifically outlined in the FAA’s Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 106, which allows passengers to carry on portable concentrators that meet stringent safety requirements. After careful study, the Philips Respironics SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator is found to meet all SFAR requirements.
Over the last decade, airline restrictions have gotten tighter for safety reasons. However, some of these same rules have hampered the lifestyles of individuals who rely on portable oxygen tanks for survival. If an oxygen patient cannot travel with the required materials, then vacations and other trips are made impossible. Diana Loera, Registered Respiratory Therapist at AMSR said “The FAA’s announcement about the SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator is a victory for patients because they can now fly without having to give up their otherwise active lifestyles”.
Not only is the Respironics SimplyGo approved for flight use, but it is also one of the most preferred systems among oxygen therapy patients. Weight just 10 pounds, the SimplyGo is much lighter than the average portable tank and it can fold down easily. This makes travel easy, especially when carrying items on board a flight. Better yet, the system can operate at altitudes of up to 10,000 feet without any interruptions.
It is also among the best portable oxygen concentrators for active patients. With a flow of an astounding two liters per minute, patients are guaranteed to get oxygen with each breath. This type of continuous flow is important for all patients, but especially for those who are active and need just a bit more to carry them through their daily activities.
American Medical Sales & Repair is the leading provider of the SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator. Not only do patients get all the features they need with the Philips system, but American Medical Sales & Repair also offers a two-year warranty. Before the FAA approval, the company was proud to offer other systems to accommodate travelers. The company is pleased with the FAA’s decision, as this allows customers to fully utilize SimplyGo without disrupting lifestyles.
Before taking off on any flight, American Medical Sales & Repair recommends that travelers contact their airlines about any other specific requirements. While the SimplyGo oxygen concentrator is cleared for use on flights, some airlines might require a doctor’s note before patients can take the system on board.
