My father recently began using an oxygen machine. He would like to know where the nitrogen goes when the machine takes in air and puts out only oxygen.

The nitrogen is returned to the air around the machine. See Wikipedia's article on the oxygen concentrator for details about how the machine separates the nitrogen and oxygen.
