CAIRE announces European launch of next generation FreeStyle Comfort portable oxygen concentrator

Award-winning device rolls out new clinical enhancements at annual MEDICA show

Ball Ground, GA, November 17, 2019 – The next generation of the award-winning FreeStyle® Comfort® portable oxygen concentrator will be the highlight of the CAIRE Inc. stand at the MEDICA show, 18-21 November at the Dusseldorf Exhibition Centre in Germany.  Originally introduced in 2018, the addition of autoSAT®, a proven self-adjusting, proprietary clinical feature, will enable European providers and clinicians to better serve their patients.

“The FreeStyle Comfort continues to expand as an integral part in how home care providers serve their oxygen patient base, and also build successful retail sales programs throughout the world,” said Barry Hassett, Vice President of Global Marketing. “We see continued enhancement of the proprietary delivery features on the FreeStyle Comfort as meeting our critical mission to bring clinically effective and convenient oxygen therapy solutions to those individuals with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. It is fitting that this show coincides not only with COPD Awareness Month, but also World COPD Day, drawing attention to the global impact of this collection of respiratory diseases and the therapies designed to serve this population of people.”

According to World Health Organization estimates, 64 million people have COPD and three million people died of COPD in 2004. Total deaths from COPD are projected to increase in the next 20 years, making it the third leading cause of death in the world unless urgent action is taken to reduce underlying risk factors, especially tobacco use and air pollution.

The recent rollout of the enhanced FreeStyle Comfort seeks to provide yet another solution for oxygen users who can benefit from on-demand oxygen flow. The new device continues to include the original unique ergonomic design which skims the natural curve of the body, making it truly comfortable to wear. Like its predecessor, the device is designed for travel, meeting FAA guidelines for use on commercial air flights.

Proprietary smart oxygen delivery features include CAIRE’s UltraSenseÒ technology, which ensures that oxygen is delivered in conjunction with the patient’s breath rate, and autoDOSE, which ensures delivery of oxygen even if no breath is detected.

The new FreeStyle Comfort is equipped with autoSAT, another proprietary technology which is a well-known delivery feature on CAIRE’s clinically-proven Eclipse 5Ò transportable oxygen concentrator.  autoSAT ensures that the device consistently deliver the oxygen bolus as the user’s respiratory rate changes throughout their daily routine. This self-adjusting feature has long been touted by clinicians as the key in titrating oxygen therapy users on a portable modality because it ensures consistent oxygen delivery when the user fluctuates between breathing normally and an increased breath rate.

The new FreeStyle Comfort offers wireless connectivity capabilities for providers to periodically monitor location and usage through CAIRE’s telehealth solution, CAIREview™. Helpful email alerts through this mobile application can provide a critical link between the patient and the provider dedicated to supporting their respiratory health care needs.

As a leading global manufacturer of oxygen supply equipment, CAIRE has been developing and supplying a comprehensive portfolio of solutions including portable and stationary oxygen therapy devices and turnkey on-site generation commercial solutions that support home care, hospice, long-term care, hospitals, military, and key industrial applications for more than 50 years.
