CAIRE Inc., manufacturer of oxygen therapy solutions, has released the wearable FreeStyle® Comfort® portable oxygen concentrator.

The new oxygen therapy device, which features five pulse settings and innovative comfort curve, was launched at CAIRE’s headquarters and respiratory Center of Excellence in Georgia, US.

It offers wireless connectivity to CAIRE’s telehealth solution, CAIREview™ powered by SynsorMed, so providing a critical link between the patient and the provider to support their respiratory health care needs.

An estimated 12 million adults in the US have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), a group of lung conditions which cause breathing difficulties.

“We are proud to introduce the latest in a long line of leading oxygen therapy equipment used in the treatment of those individuals diagnosed with COPD. The FreeStyle® Comfort® blends together durability, clinical efficacy and comfort for its user,” said Earl Lawson, President of the BioMedical Group at Chart Industries, Inc.

The FreeStyle® Comfort® delivers up to 1050 milliliters of O2 per minute and is equipped with sensitive breath detection features and technology including CAIRE’s UltraSense™ technology. Also, should a no-breath alarm occur, the device delivers oxygen therapy at its current setting at a rate of 20 breaths per minute until this alarm condition has been resolved.
