What Is SmartDose Technology?
The DeVilbiss iGo2 has two modes of operation: a standard mode and the cutting-edge SmartDose mode. The standard mode provides a fixed flow of oxygen while the SmartDose mode adjusts oxygen levels to suit your levels of activity. For example, say if you are walking up a hill and find yourself getting short of breath, the SmartDose technology would detect this and temporarily increase your flow of oxygen. Once your breathing returns to normal, the iGo2 automatically adjusts your level of oxygen back down to its original level. This saves you from manually having to adjust your oxygen level or feeling low on oxygen.
How Does the iGo2 Work?
The DeVilbiss iGo2 works by taking air from the environment and filtering out the oxygen, providing the user with concentrated, oxygen-rich air. This process requires no bottled oxygen supply and does not affect the air quality of the environment that you are in.
How Large Is the DeVilbiss iGo2?
Ideal for taking with you when you're out and about, the iGo2 Portable Oxygen Concentrator boasts a compact size that is so discreet, you'll almost forget you're wearing it!

How Long Does the iGo2 POC Battery Last?
Although the iGo2 has been designed to be lightweight and compact, it has a surprisingly long battery life. Each fully-charged battery has a charge of at least 3.5 hours when used on "Setting 2", assuming 20 breaths per minute. The battery life is dependent on the setting of the machine and the rate of breath.
If you are looking for prolonged use away from a power source, we would recommend carrying a spare battery with you, which effectively doubles the length of time you can use the iGo2 away from mains power.
Five Settings for Varied Oxygen Flow
The iGo2 offers pulse flow oxygen delivery, which is more efficient than a continuous flow as it is based on the rate and intensity of your breathing. After a short burst of oxygen is released, the concentrator will wait for you to take another breath before the next burst of oxygen.
The iGo2 features five different settings with the higher numbers providing a greater amount of oxygen (see the table below for a breakdown). The SmartDose technology can be used on settings 1 - 4 (setting 5 cannot utilise SmartDose due to being the maximum amount of oxygen).
Easy Interface for Simple Use
Made to be user-friendly, the controls of the iGo2 can be located on the LCD screen at the top of the device. On this panel, you can access the:
- Battery status indicator
- Alarm indicators
- Auto Breath option
- +/- Setting
- On/Off button
Can I Use the iGo2 When It's In Its Carrying Case?
The iGo2 can be placed in its carry case and slung over your shoulder to be used throughout the day or when travelling. The case is even designed so that you can access the LCD screen and controls at all times, making it easy to check the battery life or change your settings whenever necessary.
How Sensitive is the Oxygen Trigger on the iGo2?
The iGo2 has a trigger sensitivity of 0.05cmH2O. This is one of the most advanced pressure triggers of any portable oxygen concentrators currently available on the market and ensures an accurate amount of oxygen is release with every breath, with barely any delay.
You can feel confident in your investment into the iGo2 Oxygen Concentrator as it is covered by a three-year warranty while the battery is covered by a one year warranty. The sieve bed inside the concentrator that separates nitrogen from oxygen in the air also has a one year warranty, but can be replaced if necessary.
