The Invacare XPO2 is an incredibly powerful pulse dose model that is in the mid-size range, yet deliver an amazingly high dosage. You’ll love going out and about with this small and sleek portable oxygen concentrator. Here are the details on the XPO2, if you need help deciding if this concentrator is right for you.
This little powerhouse of a portable oxygen concentrator can deliver up to 900 ml/min of pulse dose oxygen. The XPO2 weighs just 7.3 lbs, and that’s including the battery. How did they pack that much power into such a small and light machine? With the inclusion of the 1 lb external battery pack, which you can plug into the XPO2, you will get 5 hours of complete mobility on the setting of 2. The battery only takes 3 hours to charge from 0 to 100%. It’s also low maintenance, with just a gross particle filter that needs to be clean every so often.
The battery isn’t as long lasting as some of the other portable oxygen concentrators. There are 5 pulse dose settings, and with the external battery pack, you will get 5 hours on the setting of 2. That will be considerably less for the higher settings. This is not the best choice for those who need to use it for many hours out of the day, or constantly.
The Bottom Line
If you need to use a high pulse dose for just a few hours out of the day, the Invacare XPO2 might be the right choice for you. Aside from that, the XPO2 will meet your oxygen needs beautifully, and is great to take with you when you need to go out and about. It’s only 7.25 with the battery, so you will have no trouble carrying it on your back. The look is sleek and nicely curved, so it won’t look like you are carrying a bulky piece of medical equipment around on your back.
