Waking up and beginning your day may be a little more tasking than it was before the diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), your overall lifestyle will need to be changed in many different ways in order for you to live the longest and healthiest lifestyle possible with such a progressive and degenerative respiratory disease.
The weakened state of your lungs will result in needing medical grade oxygen in order to supplement the lack of oxygen rich air that is delivered to your lungs and vital organs.
For years patients have relied on refillable oxygen tanks, bulky tanks are extremely cumbersome to use on a daily basis and restrict patients from doing many of the things they enjoy.
Instead of being restricted, enjoy the freedom to do the things you want to do when you want with the FAA approved Respironics EverGo portable oxygen concentrator.
This portable oxygen machine will keep patients that are prescribed a pulse flow of 1-6 properly saturated during daily errands, travels and when socializing with friends more adequately and for longer periods than standard oxygen tanks.
One of the immediate advantages you will experience right when you open the box is no longer needing to refill tanks or call for replacements to be dropped off.
Instead, the Respironics EverGo is powered by two rechargeable lithium ion batteries that can be charged at home through a conventional wall outlet, or even on the go in your car through the cigarette lighter outlet.
Life isn’t put on hold for anybody, so don’t wait any longer and go out and explore everything our world has to offer while staying completely saturated with the Respironics EverGo portable concentrator. Learn how it will impact your life for the better!
Advantages of the Respironics EverGo:
- Customizable Battery Life to Your Exact Daily Needs
- Minimal Maintenance Required
- Regularly Clean and Replace the Air Filter
- Charging Features at Home or in the Car on all Settings
- Weighs Less than 10 Pounds
Wide Array of Flow Settings
- Pulse Flow 1-6 (0.5 increments)
Flow adjustments may be in order depending on what activity you are doing, exercise and high exertion activities require more oxygen thus needing a higher flow rate than what is needed when sitting down or reading a book.
However you should never adjust your flow rate unless your doctor has instructed you otherwise.
The EverGo offers strictly pulse flow settings of 1-6 with the option to incrementally increase by 0.5, so no matter if you are walking up the stairs or watching a play you will be fully saturated at all times to help both relieve shortness of breath and reduce its occurrence. The results? An active, happier, healthier and more alert you!
Battery Life with the Active Patient in Mind
- One Battery: Up to 4 Hours on a Pulse Setting 2
- Two Batteries: Up to 8 Hours on a Pulse Setting 2
Living life one oxygen tank at a time is no way to practically plan for any trips, errands or personal time with friends and family.
You can throw the contact number away to your oxygen tank supplier once the EverGo arrives at your door, better yet recycle it, because you will never need a new tank to be dropped off again.
What makes portable oxygen concentrators the treatment option of the future, is that instead of needing to be refilled you simply plug the unit into a wall outlet to fully charge a depleted battery in only a few hours.
What makes the EverGo stand out from competing oxygen concentrators is the option to run 1 or 2 batteries.
If you only have a few quick errands planned for the day then a 1 battery setup may be best, as this will provide you with the lightest overall package while delivering oxygen for up to 4 hours on a setting 2.
Let’s say you are flying somewhere or are attending an all-day event, the two battery option will be your best bet as it will keep you saturated for up to 8 hours on a pulse setting 2 in exchange for 1.4 pounds of additional weight.
To benefit you, every battery for the Respironics EverGo features an on-board battery gauge. Simple press the “push” button and the battery gauge will illuminate all four lights when fully charged.

Compatible Charging Options
- AC Power Supply
- DC Power Supply
- Desktop External Battery Charger (additional cost)
Live life freely and see everything you want to see knowing no matter where you are, you will always have a method of recharging a depleted EverGo battery.
While at home or a friend’s house, you will be able to power the unit and charge one or both your batteries through a standard US or Canadian wall outlet with the AC power supply.
Each battery will take approximately 2-3 hours to fully charge, using the unit while charging will increase the time it takes to be fully charged. Charging automatically begins the instant you plug the AC power supply into the unit.
Trips to the store will no longer be stressful and cross country road trips can become a reality, without the fear of running out of supplemental oxygen. This is because the EverGo can be fully operated and charged through a cigarette lighter outlet with the DC power supply in most vehicles.
If you have multiple batteries but are only using one, you can leave the house and still charge a battery so it is fully charged when you return.
This option is only available with the additional cost desktop external battery charger. Featuring its own AC power supply, which means charging is completely separate from the unit, allowing the battery to charge in an expedited manner.
This is a must have accessory if you plan on traveling with multiple batteries, as this will reduce wait time which results in more time enjoying your vacation. Its compact size makes it a perfect fit for the EverGo accessory bag.
Charging Cycle Duration:
- 2-3 Hours per Battery, Use of the Unit while Charging will Result in an Extended Charging Cycle
- Weight: 8.5 Pounds w/ 1 Battery; 9.9 Pounds w/ 2 Batteries
You won’t have to ever fear of over exerting yourself when supporting the Respironics EverGo on your shoulder, because instead of one defined weight you can customize the unit’s weight to meet your immediate and daily needs.
Even when using two batteries, the EverGo still weighs under 10 pounds at 9.9 pounds. A two battery setup is ideal when attending all day events or especially while traveling, since the FDA requires all oxygen patients to have 150% of flight time in battery life. This is for patients that don’t mind sacrificing a little additional weight in exchange for longer portable use.
To enjoy the lightest daily operation when running to the store or exercising, using one battery will be the best bet as it minimizes the overall load to a weight of 8.5 pounds.
Removing and adding a battery is quick and easy, only requiring a few seconds out of your day. No matter if you choose to use one or two batteries, the unit is designed to flawlessly fit underneath any airplane seat or overhead storage compartment.

Benefits of Pulse Dose Technology
Pulse dose technology provides you with a precise dose of oxygen the instant inspiration occurs, while also offering a maximum oxygen capacity of 1050 ml/min.
