Philips Respironics SimplyGo Portable Oxygen Concentrator- FAA-Approved
Safety is Number One
Oxygen users know all too well how important it is to have a portable oxygen system they can count on. You shouldn't ever have to experience the pang of anxiety felt when the system goes down without warning. The Respironics Simply Go features the best that technology has to offer with audible alerts in the case of a power outage, no breath detected alarms, and oxygen purity checks. Should your oxygen level fall below the required purity levels you will be notified so you never need to wonder about the quality of your care with Simply Go Portable Oxygen Concentrator.
Battery life is another essential aspect of portable oxygen concentrators. The SimplyGo features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can provide up to 3 hours of operation on Pulse Dose mode (setting 2) or a little over 1.5 hours on Continuous Flow mode (1 LPM). The device comes with an AC power supply for home use and a DC power supply for use in vehicles, allowing users to charge and use the SimplyGo while on the road. If you require longer periods of mobility, a second external battery can be purchased to extend the battery life.
Pulse Dose and Continuous Flow Settings
Another notable feature of the SimplyGo is its dual functionality. It provides both Continuous Flow and Pulse Dose oxygen delivery modes, catering to the diverse needs of oxygen therapy patients. The Continuous Flow mode delivers a constant flow of oxygen, adjustable between 0.5 to 2 liters per minute (LPM). The Pulse Dose mode, on the other hand, is designed to deliver oxygen only when the user inhales, thus conserving battery life. This mode offers six different settings to cater to the varying requirements of users.
The SimplyGo is equipped with a user-friendly control panel, featuring an intuitive display and easy-to-navigate buttons. The LCD screen provides essential information such as battery life, device settings, alarms and oxygen flow rate, making it easy for users to monitor their oxygen therapy.

Life on the go can be difficult and stressful. Now let’s add oxygen to your daily routine. For my clients, everyday life has changed once they are on oxygen. The quick get up and go now becomes planning on how much oxygen they will need while they are gone and many struggle with the fear of running out of oxygen while away from home. These day-to-day struggles make it difficult for my clients to experience life fully. The Philips Respironics SimplyGo Portable Oxygen Concentrator is here to help you regain your independence so you can live a more active and fulfilling life.
With its lightweight design, dual oxygen delivery modes, and long-lasting battery life, the SimplyGo ensures you have a reliable source of supplemental oxygen while you're out and about. No longer will you need to meticulously plan your oxygen supply or worry about running out of oxygen during your daily activities. This high-end portable oxygen concentrator is compact, durable and best of all, it features a sleek, non-clinical look that doesn't draw attention.
Whether you need pulse dose or continuous modes, the Philips Respironics SimplyGo has you covered. It can deliver up to 2 LPM of continuous flow for users that need constant oxygen. Oxygen users with less oxygen requirements can use the pulse dose setting which delivers oxygen only during inhalation to battery life. The Simply Go has six pulse dose settings and at the highest setting of 6, it delivers an equivalent of about 1.44LPM oxygen. If you need a longer inhalation flow, the SimplyGo has a Sleep Mode which delivers a pulse dose oxygen over a longer duration for greater comfort.
The SimplyGo is FAA-approved for in-flight use and comes with both AC and DC power cords for more power options. The included rechargeable lithium ion battery provides up to 3 hrs of power on pulse dose setting 2. Although it is designed for portability, some users may find the SimplyGo a little bit on the heavier side at 10 lbs. Luckily, the SimplyGo comes with a custom carrying case and a easily maneuverable cart for those longer outings.
The Philips Respironics SimplyGo Portable Oxygen Concentrator is a versatile, user-friendly, and reliable solution for anyone requiring supplemental oxygen therapy. It has been rigorously tested to ensure reliable performance and longevity and comes with a 2 year manufacturer warranty so you can feel secure in your investment.
