Airsep Focus is the smallest Portable Oxygen Concentrator (POC) in market. The product with certain flow limitations is smallest and lightest from all its competitors. The product is designed for active patients who need ‘little’ supplemental Oxygen to carry their routine.
Unbelievably small as compared to any other Portable Oxygen Concentrator in market. (6.4” H x 4.8” W x 2.5” D)
The ‘Focus’ unit weighs only 800 grams. The battery weighing about 240 grams has to be worn separately. For some people wearing the battery separately may be a hassle and some may like it because the weight gets distributed.
Unit: 800 grams
Battery: 240 grams per battery (2 included)
Optional AirBelt: 800 grams
The unit is lighter in weight than any of its competitors even if it is worn with both the batteries.
Standard purity like any other concentrator of 90% (-3% / +5.5%) in operating range.
No internal battery; has to be worn separately either on waist, hip or on the unit’s shoulder strap.
Airsep also provides a bag with battery pockets as an accessory for people who don’t want to wear the belt separately. Focus comes with 2 batteries of duration 1.5 hours each and that’s why for getting the complete back up of 3 hours the person has to carry both batteries separately & manually switch to the 2nd battery when the 1st depletes.
The battery has a built in charge indicator which shows how much the battery is charged, the 4 LEDs flash to display the status of battery in 25% increments.
The battery keeps on charging simultaneously even when the unit is running on AC/DC power.
|Battery||1.5 hours||2||3 hours|
|Airbelt||4 hours||1||4 hours|
|2 Batteries + Airbelt||(1.5 + 1.5 + 4) hours||3||7 hours|
AirBelt (Optional Battery belt) can be purchased separately if more battery back-up is required. The AirBelt provides additional 4 hours of battery which makes it total duration of 7 hours (4 hours of belt + 3 hours of 2 batteries).
The Airsep Focus POC works on 4 sources:
Very small in size; looks good & can be worn on/across the shoulders. The POC is very much wearable.
Provides flow rate of pulse setting of 2 i.e. equivalent of 2 Litres Per Minute only which is quite low for many patients; it would have been great if the machine could provide flow of up to “3 pulse setting” but of course due to its extremely small size and weight this is a limitation.
The machine provides only pulse flow i.e. gives Oxygen only when patient inhales; therefore, can’t be used with PAP devices.
No text display of alarms – therefore, one needs to look at the table of alarms to see which kind of alarm is represented by the visual or audible indicators.
|Low Battery Alarm||Amber Light - 1 - half second flash and a 5 second pause||1- half second beep and a 5 second pause|
|Battery Shut Down||Amber Light - 2 - half second flash and a 5 second pause||2- half second beep and a 5 second pause|
|No Inspiration / Cannula Disconnect (15 minute)||Amber Light - Solid||Continuous Beep|
|Breath Rate Exceeded||Amber Light - 3 - half second flash and a 5 second pause||3- half second beep and a 5 second pause|
|Malfunction||Red Light - 2 - half second flash and a 5 second pause||2- half second beep and a 5 second pause|
No routine maintenance required. Just an internal filter needs to be replaced after 5000 hours of operation.
The POC has an external power ON/OFF switch used to power on/off the machine from external battery or A/C mains.

Airsep Focus is the right concentrator for those who are looking for a POC that’s not too heavy. We would highly recommend it for people who need ‘little’ supplemental Oxygen & want an independent lifestyle with high mobility. The product is not suitable for people with high/increasing Oxygen demands.
