LifeGas Launches the Linde Eclipse[R] Portable Oxygen Concentrator in the U.S. to Further Enhance Its OXYTRAVEL[R] Program.

ATLANTA -- Healthcare providers in the U.S. whose patients require a reliable supply of oxygen while traveling by air, train or automobile now have access to a 24-hour oxygen travel service while traveling anywhere in the world. Using the travel-friendly and clinically sound oxygen supply system from Chart SeQual Technologies Inc., the Linde Eclipse[R] portable oxygen concentrator is now available in the U.S. from LifeGas, the medical gases business of Linde North America.

Linde North America is a member of The Linde Group, a world-leading gases and engineering company. LifeGas provides a full line of medical and quality critical gases and equipment to over 1,000 hospitals, clinics, nursing facilities, emergency management services and home healthcare providers.

"The OXYTRAVEL[R] program combines the latest technology, such as the Linde Eclipse portable oxygen concentrator, with a 24-hour professional travel coordination service anywhere in the world that is second to none," said Anthony Eafrati, LifeGas homecare market manager. "People who need oxygen therapy while traveling can be assured that LifeGas has offered, and will continue to offer, the most reliable oxygen supply and personal caring assistance when they need it most," said Eafrati.

The Linde Eclipse portable oxygen concentrator is an advanced travel oxygen delivery system developed by Chart SeQual Technologies Inc., a San Diego-based medical device manufacturer. Chart SeQual Technologies develops oxygen systems known worldwide for their reliability, quality, and revolutionary design. "The result of our collaboration with Chart SeQual Technologies is a robust, travel-friendly unit that delivers the oxygen to patients where and when they need it while traveling," said Eafrati.

The Linde Eclipse portable oxygen concentrator comes with a sleek carbon graphite look and feel, and is custom packaged for Linde in a plastic corrugated case intended for repeat courier shipments. The Linde unit is equipped with standard Eclipse accessories, including the universal cart that allows battery access while attached to the Linde Eclipse portable oxygen concentrator, AC and DC power supplies, a power cartridge, and an accessory bag.

With continuous flow settings up to three liters per minute and pulse dosing up to 192 milliliters per bolus, the Linde Eclipse portable oxygen concentrator also utilizes Chart SeQual Technologies' well-known autoSAT[TM] technology. The Linde Eclipse portable oxygen concentrator is a 24/7 device meeting stationary, ambulatory and travel needs.
