Addressing Concerns Amidst Philips Respironics Portable Oxygen Concentrator Discontinuation

Published on 22 February 2024 by

Philips Respironics recently announced the discontinuation of select respiratory products from its portfolio in the United States and its territories. Within the list of 19 products are SimplyGo, SimplyGo Mini, and Everflo oxygen concentrators.

Effective January 25, 2024, Philips Respironics ceased the sale of their POCs, with End of Service slated for January 25, 2029. Concerns have arisen among home care providers reliant on these essential medical devices. However, we, at GCE, wish to offer reassurance and a viable solution.

GCE Healthcare presents the Zen-O and Zen-O lite POCs to seamlessly address the needs of those previously reliant on Philips' offerings. Our Zen-O POC features both continuous and pulse flow technologies, delivering up to 2 liters of oxygen per minute, while the Zen-O lite stands as an ultra-lightweight and whisper-quiet option that is FAA-approved for in-flight usage.

In line with this commitment, we're also planning to introduce the M50 5-liter stationary concentrator to our valued US customers in the second quarter of 2024.
