POC research is a lot of work
If you have never shopped for a portable oxygen concentrator before, it can be a little overwhelming. There are so many options — how do you choose?
There are two types of POCs: pulse dose and continuous flow. Pulse dose POCs have many more models than continuous flow machines — for example, our shopping website has 30 pulse dose models, whereas there are only 6 continuous flow models.
