Oxygen & Medical Totes
If you need to transport medical aids or devices, medical totes can make the process much easier. These specially made totes are made of durable materials and feature shapes that are designed to fit specific medical items like oxygen tanks, wheelchairs, and more. You can find medical totes at CVS Pharmacy that will help you live a more independent life. Look for medical totes that are made to exact specifications based on the item you need to carry. For example, an oxygen tote can fit a small cylinder or a large oxygen tank, depending on which one you have and which one you need to take along with you. Always make sure that your medical tote is durable so you don't have to worry about it tearing or coming loose during transport.
Oxygen totes can make taking your oxygen with you easier. Always make sure that you choose a tote in accordance with your specific oxygen cylinder or oxygen tank. Always use extreme care and caution when handling oxygen, and make sure that the regular flow is off or on the O setting before placing it into the tote. Many oxygen totes include a grommeted hole that you can feed the oxygen tube through. You may also choose an oxygen cart that has wheels so you can take it with you while shopping or running errands. However, a durable oxygen carry pouch or tote is the easiest way to take your oxygen with you when you're on the go.
Oxygen Cylinder Totes
If you need to take an oxygen cylinder along with you, look for oxygen cylinder totes. These durable bags come in several designs, and some are made to hold onto the tank while you use a wheelchair. Make sure that the tote fits your specific cylinder size, such as a D or an E-sized tank. The tote should be constructed of durable fabric, such as nylon or a stretchy mesh. Straps will keep the oxygen cylinder secure, while side flaps can help it to remain stable and upright. Read the product specifications carefully to ensure that you choose the right oxygen cylinder tote for your unique needs. Many models come with adjustable straps so that they fit a wider variety of wheelchairs and oxygen tanks.
An oxygen backpack allows you to secure your oxygen container to your back in such a way that it is more comfortable for further travel than an oxygen carry bag. Like the carry bag, many backpacks are designed to hold various oxygen concentrators. If your oxygen is completely contained within the backpack, make sure that there is ventilation. Without proper ventilation for your oxygen concentrator, the system may break.
How To Use Oxygen Carry Bags
Oxygen carry bags are a great idea for people who are on the go and need to have their oxygen tank with them at all times. You can use them by carrying them over your shoulder, or by strapping them to a wheelchair. A good carry bag will fit many types of post valve cylinders, and may also feature a nylon strap that can be adjusted for shoulder or wheelchair carrying. Oxygen containers can be heavy, so carry bags should not be used for long periods of time.
