Abstract
We will develop a novel, truly portable oxygen source with sufficiently low weight and battery power requirements; it can reliably provide oxygen (or oxygen-enriched air) for several hours of continuous operation. An intended application is for a child to carry the device in a small backpack at school or play. Such a unit will allow children who require continuous oxygen administration to lead a more normal lifestyle. These children could participate in such simple childhood activities as skipping rope or playing a game of softball.
