Constant oxygen supply is important for any seriously ill patient. Therefore, this has made the demand and price for oxygen very high. In this article, we will see 3 reasons why the price of medical oxygen is High. Thus without further ado, here are the 3 reasons:
1. Production Of Cylinder Are Expensive
The first reason why Oxygen is expensive is that the production of the cylinder that contains the oxygen is expensive. Its production involves a relatively expensive industrial process, which only a few companies hand handle. Also, the raw materials to make the cylinder are scarce, thus leading to a hike in price.
2. Involves High Amount Of Energy
Another reason why medical oxygen is expensive is that it consumes a high amount of energy in its processing. Furthermore, this high amount of energy can only be carried out by huge industrial companies. Therefore, only a few companies go into the business.
3. It involves A Lengthy Process
Last, but not least is that the process of making both the cylinder and the oxygen is very lengthy. It involves series of technicalities that time and money. As such many companies and agencies avoid the production of medical oxygen.
