    @charlene-marshall, Could you please tell me what number of O2 you have to use with your POC? And what number do you use for exertion on an oxygen tank?

    • Hi @lynn-schmitt, nice to hear from you, thanks for writing! Sorry about the delay in getting back to you – things are a bit chaotic here. Sure, I usually use 4LPM during exertion while using my POC, and only 2 at rest. I find my needs are higher while using my tanks, though not sure why. Maybe the quality of the 02? I find with my tanks I am closer to 6LPM during exertion (either D or E sized tanks I lug around) and 2-3 at rest. Does this help?

      • Hi, Charlene!
        I am going to San Diego in 6 weeks. I have an Inogen One G2, which weighs about 7:5 pounds. I am on 4 limit oxygen when active. My POC goes to 6 pulse. How do you take your trips and carry around your POC? I am thinking about ordering a backpack for the Inogen, but I am afraid that it will be too heavy with the double battery. Any solutions?

        • Hi Lynn!

          Oh that is very exciting – I’ve never been to San Diego, but I’d love to go! Enjoy your trip! 🙂

          Good question re: carrying around your POC. I have the SimplyGo Respironics machine and while it is easy to travel with, being FAA approved for airlines, it is heavy and that is the only complaint I have about the POC I use. Thankfully it comes with a little trolley that folds up small and unfolds to carry the machine. Usually I pull it around, put it over my shoulder (though this hurts my back for long periods of time) or a friend carries it for me. My friend’s husband just lugged it around at a concert we attended recently. I am looking into a backpack for mine, that would be ideal, but haven’t found one yet due to it’s odd shape. Though a member of the forums just shared a backpack option with me that works for his SimplyGo machine so I am going to look into that! Does the Inogen come with a trolley cart?
