What is a Liquid Oxygen Reservoir?
Liquid Oxygen ReservoirsA liquid oxygen reservoir is a larger tank, usually weighing over 55 kg (120 lbs.) and standing over 0.75 m (30 in) in height. The reservoir typically sits stationary in an oxygen user’s home environment and contains actual liquid oxygen. The primary function of the reservoir is to fill the liquid oxygen portable units for an oxygen user to use while away from home or active. Also, the oxygen user can breathe continuous flow directly from the reservoir if a stationary oxygen concentrator is not provided in the home, or as an emergency source of oxygen is needed in the event of a power outage.
Since the reservoir holds oxygen, its contents will deplete as it is used. Your oxygen provider will either refill or exchange your reservoir every few weeks to ensure you always have a sufficient source of oxygen.
