What are medical compressors, oxygen concentrators and aspirators? Medical compressors are devices used to pressurize room air, which can then be used to power other devices, such as respiratory devices. Typically, medical air compressors come in two types: a tabletop unit that uses electricity from an outlet in your home and a portable unit that uses a battery, or may operate from the cigarette lighter in your car. Oxygen concentrators are medical devices that provides oxygen therapy to patients at minimally to substantially higher concentrations than available in ambient air. Unlike tanks or cylinders, oxygen concentrators do not store large amounts of pressurized oxygen. Concentrators create oxygen as it is needed and only store enough to provide the correct liters per minute flow. Aspirators are small suction machine used to remove mucus and other bodily fluids from a patient. Aspirators consist of a hollow needle and a cannula, connected by tubing to a container in which a vacuum is created by a syringe or a suction pump.
