Works great for O2 tank to conserve O2 uses pulse demand or continuous flow.

Looks like a home health device? How does it compensate for changes in altitude? The Mountain High EDS system does it automatically, how does this unit do it?

It is and It does not and the mountain system unless it has you connected to an oximeter is useless. How would it know to increase the flow of oxygen without knowing what your PaO2 is? A person in good health might need only 1 liter into the teens. Someone with underlying respiratory issues may need more.

The MH system automatically increases/decreases the O2 flow based on your pressure altitude. The O2 savings is great, but so is being able to simply turn it on before TO and back off after you land and the system does the rest, including turning on and off at approximately 10K or whatever floor you have selected.

The Scott, SkyOx, and other legacy continuous flow systems function in the same manner, the only difference you have to start/stop and adjust the flow manually as you climb/descend with a little regulator based on your altitude.

None of the systems I'm aware of monitor the individuals blood saturation levels, you just check your level with a finger clip and make what adjustments are necessary to the unit or manual flow control.

Thats wonderful, what does it have to do with my ad? I did not post this in a discussion forum.

I didn't intend to offend, I just asked how it worked. It appeared to be something I would see in the pages of AARP and was curious if it functioned the same as aviation units. When I googled the manufacture I found little information on flow control, so I asked.

If you what to sell it you may consider including a price.

Do you know if it can be added to built in system?

I did, I just replaced the original regulator on the bottle with the one from MH and then used the rest of their system. I did that system some years ago, I'm sure the have some newer stuff out by now.

The MH system does for altitude flying that the ANR headset did for communications. AK to the East coast on one bottle, makes altitude flying a non-event.
