Respironics Everflo Q with OPI 5 liter Oxygen
Concentrator represents a compact in-home
concentrator, which is remarkably low maintenance.
Part of the attractiveness of this unit, besides
its sleek design, is how lightweight it is, when
compared to other stand-alone home-use oxygen
concentrators. It is also light on the pocket book
with less energy consumption than its competitors,
which also means it runs cooler. Sturdy design to
the easily seen recessed flow meter reduces the risk of accidental breakage.
The Everflo Q concentrator provides a platform that
facilitates all styles of humidifier bottles and includes a simple
Velcro closure to keep the bottle in place. The Oxygen Percentage Indicator (OPI) option
(included with this model) uses ultrasonic
technology to measures oxygen output as a purity indication.

Efficient & Quiet At-Home Oxygen Therapy
Oxygen concentrators have transformed at-home oxygen therapy, with these self-contained oxygen generators replacing the heavy green pressurized tanks that used to define supplemental O2 therapy. And as oxygen concentrators continue to develop, they are getting smaller and more refined with every new model release. The original EverFlo O2 concentrator delivered reliable, continuous flow oxygen in a relatively compact and lightweight (31 pounds) package. The EverFlo Q improves on the original with an even quieter design, running continuous flow oxygen at an average of 40 dB – a significant 5 dB drop from its predecessor.
The EverFlo Q is efficient too, with its advanced motor capable of powering effective oxygen therapy with minimal electricity from the AC wall plug. This impressive efficiency will be best appreciated when the electric bill comes due, an important consideration for 24-hour oxygen care. The EverFlo Q’s quiet and efficient nature is also complemented by its relatively compact dimensions and light 31-pound weight – making for an unobtrusive presence in the home. And the Q’s built-in roller wheels means the EverFlo is easily moved around the home as needed. So while a mobile stationary oxygen concentrator may sound like an oxymoron, it’s a real-world reality thanks to the EverFlo Q!
Durable Construction & User-Friendly Design
As a stationary at-home oxygen concentrator the EverFlo Q is built with durability and long-term reliability in mind. Subtle design cues, like the recessed flow meter and metal cannula connector, help resist accidental breakage and everyday wear-and-tear. Philips engineers also aimed for convenience, with user-friendly features like including a humidifier bottle holder with
Velcro strap that’s compatible a standard bubble humidifier (humidifier not included). The the EverFlo Q’s humidifier and oxygen tubing connectors are also placed at top of EverFlo Q for quick, easy connections.
EverFlo Q patients operate their O2 therapy through a simplified user interface. There aren’t any complicated bells and whistles to cause confusion, with a straightforward on/off switch, Flow Meter Knob and three indicator lights (green, yellow, red) regulating the oxygen therapy. The EverFlo Q does include some high-tech interventions, however, with audible and visual alarms kicking in when problems like a loss of power, machine/system errors or oxygen flow/purity issues are detected.
The EverFlo Q also aims to keep maintenance easy too, with the external air inlet filter and internal micro disk filter set for 2- and 5-year replacement schedule. Philips Respironics also backs the EverFlo Q with a 5-year manufacturer warranty.
