SimplyGo or SimplyGo Mini? Respironics has two models of portable oxygen concentrators for my patients, but which one do they pick? Let’s look at these two models and find the best one suited for you.
SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator has two modes of oxygen delivery, continuous or pulse does. When we talk about the method of delivery, your doctor will prescribe whether you can tolerate pulse dose flow vs. continuous flow. Pulse dose means oxygen on inhalation only. Continuous flow means you will receive a continuous stream of oxygen. The Philips Simply Go Mini only has the capability of delivering a pulse dose to its customer base. Therefore, the only drawback with the Mini is it doesn’t have a continuous flow option. So, if my patients need constant flow, then the SimplyGo is the unit for them!
Let’s say you like to travel and plan to use the SimplyGo portable oxygen concentrator during the day and nighttime. If you are on 2 liters of flow or less, then you would want to look at purchasing this unit. Why you may ask because it can meet your oxygen needs for daytime and nighttime use. No need to look for a continuous flow concentrator when the SimplyGo can provide everything you need. Just be sure to always carry your prescription with you.
The SimplyGo is a little bigger than the SimplyGo Mini. The SimplyGo comes in roughly at 12x10x6, whereas the SimplyGo Mini is around 8x4x9. Weight always becomes an issue, and with the SimplyGo, it weighs about 10 lbs vs. 5 lbs with the Mini. Battery life is very comparable with both units while charging is a little longer with the Simply Go Mini. The SimplyGo Mini will need about 4 hours to charge, whereas the SimplyGo is around 2-3 hours.
When we look at the noise level of both these portable oxygen concentrators, they come in at the same level. Most of my patients like to travel with a concentrator that doesn’t put them in the spotlight. Phillips Respironics has done a great job with keeping the noise lower than most portable oxygen concentrators. Not only does sound seem to be an issue, but it looks also can prevent my patients from taking their oxygen with them. Again, Phillips Respironics has held their portable oxygen concentrators to a very sleek, stylish, non-medical concentrator. Because of their design, my patients are comfortable taking either of these portable oxygen concentrators with them.
So, with everything mentioned above, the only significant difference between these two portable oxygen concentrators is the ability of continuous flow or pulse dose flow. If your prescribing physician allows you to use pulse dose flow, then you want to look at the SimplyGo Mini; otherwise, it is the SimplyGo!
