Oxygen is included on the World Health Organization (WHO) list of essential medicines, yet it is still not widely available in developing-country settings. Fortunately, there is compelling evidence that oxygen concentrators are a feasible and cost-effective strategy for the administration of oxygen therapy, especially where oxygen cylinders and piped oxygen systems are inappropriate or unavailable. Goodquality oxygen concentrators can provide a sustainable and reliable source of oxygen.
