Philips Respironics M10 Millennium Oxygen Concentrator
The Philips Millennium M10 oxygen concentrator capably delivers up to ten liters per minute of oxygen flow at a sustained high oxygen percentage. Most oxygen concentrators support a maximum flow of five liters per minute. With a range of 1 to 10 liters per minute, the Millennium M10 safely meets the needs of a wider range of home oxygen wearers.

High oxygen output
With higher flows at consistently high oxygen percentages, the Millennium M10 provides a long-awaited combination for home oxygen therapy. It is uniquely positioned to get patients home who might otherwise need to remain in the hospital. The Millennium M10 also meets the oxygen percent and flow demand needs of turbine-driven high-flow nasal cannula delivery devices, without necessitating the use of portable oxygen tanks.
The Philips Millennium M10 concentrator can be set to deliver flows from 1 LPM to 10 LPM. Twin head compressors work together to continuously pull sufficient airflow through the sieve bed. The flow meter is readily accessible and easily visible on the front of the compressor. A molded compartment below the flow meter holds a humidifier bottle securely in place.
Safe and steady
The Millennium M10 is a sturdy, durable concentrator that requires little maintenance. Protective tubing and casing cover all the electronic parts to negate concerns about electric shock. High-grade caster wheels provide the user the freedom to traverse the home.

Patients requiring supplemental oxygen at higher flows are often unable to discharge home from the hospital. With the ability to deliver up to 10 liters per minute, the Philips Millennium M10 can help many people return home sooner. With a range of 1 to 10 liters per minute, some people with chronic conditions may be able to work with their providers to increase their flow during a flare-up and avoid hospital admission.
As a clinician, I am impressed by how well the Millennium M10 maintains high percentages of oxygen at higher flows. It does so just as well at 10 LPM as it does at lower flow rates.
Humidification is a must for oxygen flows over five liters per minute to avoid some unpleasant side effects of excessive dry oxygen through the nose. Happily, the Millennium M10 has the perfect place carved out just below the flow meter for a humidifier water bottle.
With twin-head air compressors, the Millennium M10 is not the lightest concentrator on the market, but it moves safely and without trouble thanks to the sturdy wheels. The oxygen wearer will be able to spend time in common areas of the home with loved ones.
What maintenance is required?
The air filter should be vacuumed or cleaned each week with mild soap and water. If you have indoor animals, clean more frequently (every 3-4 days). Let completely air dry before reinserting.
If you use the concentrator throughout the day, keep a second air filter on hand to exchange when it is time to clean. Do not use the concentrator without an air filter in place. The HEPA filter located in the rear compartment only needs to be replaced annually. The exterior of the machine can be wiped down with a damp cloth.
Can I run the concentrator with an external battery?
The Millennium M10 requires a 110V electrical source and should not be run on an external battery. If you do have an external power failure, transition to oxygen cylinders. Turn the concentrator completely off for at least two minutes to allow it to depressurize, otherwise, there may be some difficulty with alarms when restarting the concentrator after power is restored.
How do I know the concentrator is working correctly?
Check the user’s oxygen levels with a pulse oximeter. Your provider can tell you what a normal number is for the oxygen user. If the user is having signs of low oxygen levels (unexpected shortness of breath, confusion, blue-tinged lips, etc.), verify the flow. Place your hand over the nasal cannula or oxygen tubing. You should feel the flow. Look at the flow meter on the front of the device. The ball should be level with the desired flow rate. If you notice any issues, verify that the side of the concentrator where the air inlet is located is not blocked in any way. If the user is unwell and you have verified flow, you should call your provider or 911 depending on the circumstances.
