How many hours can an oxygen concentrator run? Should oxygen concentrator run continuously?

That's correct. 24 hours if you use it in your home.

When you use an oxygen concentrator outside the home, away from plugs, the battery tends to last about 3-4 hours.

My mother used to use an oxygen concentrator.
