My father in law needs to be on Oxygen for about 2 hours a day, so I am wondering if anyone has this type of equipment for sale, or know where I can get it?

If so please let me know.. Thanks!

Mike

Mike,

You are asking about Quito. I know I've seen the OXY bottles in medical supply places here in Cuenca.

Good luck.

I have seen home delivery vans with oxygen on Gonzalez Suarez, but I don't remember the name of the company, so I know they are available.

I'm a respiratory therapist, retired in Cuenca, and very familar with Glo. If their operation in Quito is on a par with their office in Cuenca, then rest assured, your father-- in law will be well cared for. They provide top of the line equipment, and their equipment maintenance protocol is excellent. Much good luck!

Oxygen tanks are also available in the Bahia de Caraquez area. and San Vicente. Large tanks are refillable at $30 and small portable tanks $10. Company in Portovieho supplies the refilled tanks and there is a distributer in both San Vicente and Bahia.
Probably same in Manta but I have not checked on that.
