After a few months of using liquid oxygen and tanks, Robert L. of Florence, South Carolina began to get frustrated with all the inconveniences of traditional oxygen equipment. Simple trips out of the house were difficult. "It felt like I was handicapped with the regular oxygen equipment. I couldn’t do anything," says Robert.
His daughter and grandchildren live 100 miles away from him. Robert likes to visit them on occasion and spend a few days at their home. In order to do that he would have to load up his car with oxygen tanks. Not only was that dangerous, but that would barely last him a weekend. Shorter day trips to Myrtle Beach, which is only 45 minutes away, weren’t much easier either.
Eventually he asked his oxygen provider for a portable concentrator. However, they said they could not provide him with one. Fortunately for Robert, as he did research on portable oxygen concentrators he found an ad on the internet for Open-Aire. Once he contacted Open-Aire he found the process very easy. The case managers helped him and worked with his doctor every step of the way.
Now Robert is a big fan of Open-Aire and talks about the company and his equipment whenever he gets a chance. "I go to a pulmonary rehab program at my local hospital and I show off my portable oxygen concentrator to everyone when I’m there. It's made things so much better." We appreciate the kind words and the recommendations from Robert.
