Why the Military Relies on Portable Oxygen Generators

Every moment of every day, U.S. soldiers are risking their lives for our country, and more times than not, they are in extremely remote locations surrounded by rugged conditions. So, when medical care is needed, they need an oxygen generator that can withstand the harsh conditions without being too bulky to transport. With our portable oxygen generator systems, referred to as POGS, the military can receive the on-demand oxygen they require to provide medical care to our soldiers across the globe.

Examples of On Site Oxygen Uses

Our USP 93% POGS were built with the brutal environment of a war zone in mind. Meaning they are very well made and durable, yet they are small and simple to transport to remote locations. Most importantly, they create pure, medical-grade oxygen to aid our soldiers wherever it is needed. Here are just some of the ways the military uses our portable oxygen generator systems:

  • POGS are used to fill up cylinders that can be transported by first responders. As they arrive on the scene, they have full tanks ready to go, and the tanks can be easily refilled as needed.
  • Alternatively, POGS are used directly on a patient in a field hospital instead of having to worry about filling up cylinders. The portable oxygen generator system makes sure the patient never runs out of the oxygen supply they need to survive.
  • Our medical-grade on site oxygen generators are also used on military aircrafts to provide the necessary oxygen for ventilators and anesthesia units.
  • On site oxygen is also being used to provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy to patients, which has been shown to be an effective treatment for PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Why On Site Gas Systems for POGS

When it comes to on site oxygen use in the military, it is impossible to predict how much is going to be needed. That is what makes on-demand oxygen so important. The military will always have the supply they need, no matter how many patients end up requiring the assistance of oxygen. With our POGS, they don’t have to worry about durability or transportability, as our units offer both. Not only are our portable oxygen generator systems functional, they are extremely effective at producing the purity of oxygen required for medical use. In fact, they are FDA approved as a Class II medical device, so doctors and patients can rely on their purity.

The military risks their lives every day, and with the help of POGS from On Site Gas Systems, many of these lives can be saved, even in the most extreme conditions. To learn more about our portable oxygen generator systems for both military and non-military use, contact us today.
