Portable oxygen concentrator (POC) is a medical device used to supply oxygen to patients suffering from respiratory diseases. The concentrator separates nitrogen and oxygen from air in the environment and then discards the nitrogen and supplies 95% pure oxygen to patients through a mask. POCs are smaller as compared to stationary oxygen concentrators, allowing patients to easily carry the device. Apart from patients, POCs are also used by mountaineers and travellers in places where oxygen is inadequate.
