This might seem like the only solution to an obnoxiously loud oxygen concentrator, but I’ll show you better ways
It can be tough living with an oxygen concentrator in the house. No one in the home is immune to the whooshing, clunking and general high annoyance factor of a noisy concentrator.
Some new home oxygen concentrator machines are pretty quiet, but you might be stuck with a rented concentrator from a medical equipment provider. Many of these providers have old, loud and poorly maintained machines, and you just have to live with them. You would get in big trouble for altering the O2 generator in any permanent way.
The video above covers 5 ways to reduce the acoustic assault on your sleep. You don’t have to loose sleep over noisy oxygen concentrators anymore!
