    Thanks for explaining how large oxygen concentrators weigh about 45 pounds. I’d like to get one but I wasn’t sure about how big they are. Carrying it up the stairs won’t be too bad, making sure it will fit is the question.

    Thank you for sharing that oxygen concentrator comes in a variety of sizes depending on your application. My friend just mentioned the other day that she is worried about her mother who has respiratory illness as she is having difficulty breathing most of the time. I will suggest to her getting an oxygen concentrator from a reliable supplier.
