As medical units they are expected to produce 98% O2 for 20,000 hours of operation. As you go beyond that the percentage gradually drops. Additionally they do not tolerate hot humid conditions particularly well. Extreme humidity can damage the sieve beds that produce the O2 and shorten the functional life of the machine.
