Philips Respironics recently announced the discontinuation of select respiratory products from its portfolio in the United States and its territories. Within the list of 19 products are SimplyGo, SimplyGo Mini, and Everflo oxygen concentrators.

Effective January 25, 2024, Philips Respironics ceased the sale of their POCs, with End of Service slated for January 25, 2029. Concerns have arisen among home care providers reliant on these essential medical devices. However, we, at GCE, wish to offer reassurance and a viable solution.

GCE Healthcare presents the Zen-O and Zen-O lite POCs to seamlessly address the needs of those previously reliant on Philips' offerings. Our Zen-O POC features both continuous and pulse flow technologies, delivering up to 2 liters of oxygen per minute, while the Zen-O lite stands as an ultra-lightweight and whisper-quiet option that is FAA-approved for in-flight usage.

In line with this commitment, we're also planning to introduce the M50 5-liter stationary concentrator to our valued US customers in the second quarter of 2024.

With a longstanding commitment to safety and efficiency in manufacturing medical gas control equipment, GCE has earned a reputation for reliability. Our dedication to customer satisfaction ensures top-notch support and tailored products.

As part of the ESAB family, a global leader in welding and cutting equipment manufacturing, GCE is backed by extensive resources that guarantee steadfast support and service.

GCE has established a strong presence in the US market through strategic acquisitions, this includes leveraging Ohio Medical’s market leading position as a medical device manufacturer in suction and oxygen therapy. This demonstrates our readiness to serve our American customers with confidence.

Home care providers can trust GCE to deliver reliable alternatives to Philips Respironics' discontinued portable oxygen concentrators. With a proven track record of quality and safety, along with financial stability and a solid presence in the US market, we stand out as a dependable partner for home care needs.

Medical high-pressure regulators are the cornerstone of the GCE Healthcare portfolio. Their robust and safe designs meet the most demanding requirements in the healthcare sector.

Robust design

Recent feedback from customers highlighted the need to improve the protection of the gauge. Reports of bending and breakages from impacts in day-to-day use meant regulators needed to be repaired and were out of action. Adding extra costs that no user needs. 

We took this feedback and developed new improvements. These improvements increase the protection of the gauge from bending and breaking. This also protects the regulator from any potential contamination associated with gauge replacement. Making GCE Healthcare high pressure regulators the best choice for quality and reliable gas control equipment.

Improved maintenance

With our new extra robust design, unplanned maintenance of pressure regulators should be a thing of the past. But, the gauge on any medical pressure regulator must be checked regularly to ensure the reliability of the regulator and the accuracy of the gas value readings. During this maintenance or replacement  the risk of contamination increases. Local maintenance departments are not kitted out with the same equipment to clean medical devices completely in the same way manufacturers like GCE are.

So, what can be done to reduce this risk?

With the new u-clip on our medical pressure regulators, you can change the gauge simply and safely whilst reducing the risk of contamination. You don’t need any special tools or intervention to the regulator body.

The best choice

Healthcare professionals need to rely on the equipment they use day in, day out. They need to know it is ready and safe to use at a moments notice. So, choosing a high-quality, low-maintenance solution is really the only option. For more information visit our medical pressure regulators pages.
