EverGo Traveling with Portable Oxygen

For oxygen patients who love to travel and don’t want to be tied down by conventional oxygen therapy, the EverGo portable oxygen concentrator from Respironics is the answer. EverGo weighs less than ten pounds, has an eight-hour battery life, and can deliver 1050 ml/min of oxygen, making it ideal for oxygen patients traveling by plane, train, bus or car.

With its impressive oxygen generating capacity and long battery life of eight hours (on a typical patient setting of 2), oxygen patients never have to worry about storing oxygen tanks, waiting for home deliveries, or most importantly, running out of oxygen. And the EverGo offers three power options - AC, DC, and two rechargeable batteries.

Travel tips for oxygen patients
Traveling can seem daunting for people who require supplemental oxygen. But you don’t have to give up the ability to travel. With proper planning and guidance, you can go on a weekend getaway or a week-long vacation without worry.

The following are tips that you can use to plan your next trip.

  • Speak with your doctor to make sure it is safe for you to travel.
  • Obtain a current physician order (prescription) for your oxygen. Keep a copy with you at all times.
  • Decide where, how and when you will travel.
  • Contact your oxygen provider.

Batteries and Electrical Power

How many hours can EverGo batteries last before they need to be recharged?
EverGo’s two-battery system helps to ensure long operation duration times. For example, at a setting of 2 and 20 breaths per minute (BPM) with 2 fully charged batteries, the device can be expected to run for 8 hours. Under similar conditions at a setting of 4, 5, or 6, it can run for 4 hours.

The duration times shown in the table below are based on two fully charged batteries. If only one battery is used, duration will be approximately half of the times shown in the chart.

Flow Setting Rate of 20 BPM
1 12 hours
2 8 hours
3 6 hours
4 4 hours
5 4 hours
6 4 hours

How can a patient tell how much battery life is remaining?
There are two methods for determining the remaining battery life. If a battery is inside the unit, the touch screen interface will indicate the remaining battery life of each battery. If a battery is outside of the unit, an LED indicator shows the amount of charge by percentage.

What is the battery recharge time?
Approximately 2-3 hours per battery

How can batteries be recharged?
Batteries can be charged one of two ways:

If the battery or batteries are inside EverGo, they can be charged by plugging into an AC or DC power source (wall outlet or in the car, for example) using either the AC or DC power cord.

If the batteries are outside EverGo, batteries can be charged using the external battery charger (optional accessory) that plugs into the wall.

How much electricity does EverGo use while plugged into a wall outlet?
110 watts at 100 VAC (charging)
120 watts at 240 VAC (charging)
70 watts (not charging)

What is the maximum oxygen capacity of EverGo?
The maximum oxygen delivery of the EverGo is 1050ml/min.

How long does it take EverGo to reach specified oxygen purity?
At start-up, the EverGo dose setting number will blink until the unit reaches normal oxygen purity, typically 2-3 minutes. It can take longer depending upon actual breath rate, setting and temperature.

What flow settings are available for EverGo?
EverGo is a pulse dose device, delivering oxygen in settings of 1-6 in ½ setting increments.

Does EverGo offer continuous flow?

Only you and your doctor can determine if EverGo is the right oxygen concentrator for you. If you are active and require a highly portable source of oxygen, EverGo is ideal.

What does the EverGo portable oxygen concentrator weigh?
9.9 lbs (4.5 kg) with 2 batteries and carrying case
8.5 lbs (3.8 kg) with 1 battery and carrying case
