Hello im new on here first time posting ,i am really looking for help and advice on small oxygen concentrators i have been on oxygen since November 24/7 and find the cylinders so heavy to carry and i cant pull the trolley [ another story ] the respiratory nurse mentioned a liquid oxygen tank to fill smaller one up to take out but she didn't know the weight , so i am hoping somebody out there can tell me which one is good and lighter.Thank you for your help

Hi

Liquid oxygen flask go from 2.2 kg upto 3.7 kg depending on make.

Best to ring your provider to see what equipment they use.

You can also discuss suitability for installation of the main Dewar.

If all boxes are ticked your respitory nurse can place the necessary order on your behalf.

Checking your providers web site may give all there equipment details.

Your oxygen supplier should also be able to offer a lighter cylinder. Mine do cylinder sizes 400 (normal size) and 300 (lighter option).
