Devilbiss Oxygen concentrators are the most reliable, efficient, and convenient source of supplemental oxygen available today. The devilbiss oxygen concentrator is electrically operated. The unit separates oxygen from room air which allows high-purity supplemental oxygen to be delivered to you through the oxygen outlet. Although the devilbiss concentrator filters the oxygen in a room, it will not affect the normal amount of oxygen in your room.
Setting Up Your Devilbiss Oxygen Concentrator
- . Position your unit near an electrical outlet in the room where you spend most of your time. Keep the oxygen concentrator at least 5 feet (1.6 m) from hot, sparking objects or naked sources of flame. NOTEDo not connect to an electrical outlet controlled by a wall switch. No other appliances should be plugged into the wall outlet.
- Position your unit at least 6 inches (16 cm) from walls, draperies, or any other objects that might prevent the proper flow of air in and out of your oxygen concentrator. The oxygen concentrator should be located so as to avoid pollutants or fumes.
Before Operat ing Your Devilbiss Oxygen Concentrator
- Before operating your unit, always check to be sure the air filter (located on the back of your unit) is clean. Proper cleaning of this filter is discussed in the Caring For Your Concentrator section on page 7.
- Attach the appropriate oxygen accessories to the oxygen outlet.
Oxygen Tubing Connection:
- Thread the oxygen outlet connector onto the oxygen outlet.
- Attach the oxygen tubing directly to the connector (Figure 3).
- Fill the humidifier bottle with distilled water. Do not overfill. (If using a prefill, go to letter b.)
- Thread the wing nut located on the top of the humidifier bottle to the oxygen outlet so that it is suspended (Figure 4). Make sure it is securely tightened.
- Attach the oxygen tubing directly to the humidifier bottle outlet fitting (Figure 5).
Oxygen Tubing Connection With Humidification:
If your physician has prescribed an oxygen humidifier as part of your therapy, follow these steps:
- Your physician has prescribed either a nasal cannula or face mask. In most cases, they are already attached to the oxygen tubing. If not, follow the manufacturers instructions for attachment
- Remove the power cord completely from the line cord strap. Make sure the power switch is in the Offposition, and insert the plug into the wall outlet. The unit is double insulated to guard against electric shock.
How to Operate Your DeVilbiss Oxygen Concentrator:
Oxygen causes rapid burning. Do not smoke while your oxygen concentrator is operating, or when you are near a person utilizing oxygen therapy. Keep the oxygen concentrator at least 5 feet (1.6 m) from hot, sparking objects or naked sources of flame.
- Press the power switch to the Onposition. When the unit is turned On,all four lights (Power, Service Required, Low Oxygen, and Normal Oxygen) on the front panel will illuminate briefly and audible signal will briefly alarm. After a few seconds, only the Power and Normal Oxygen lights will remain lit.
- Check the flow meter to make sure that the flow meter ball is centered on the line next to the
prescribed number of your flow rate.
CAUTIONIt is very important to follow your oxygen prescription. Do not increase or decrease the flow of oxygen consult your physician.
NOTEYour DeVilbiss provider may have preset the flow meter so that it can not be adjusted.
NOTEIf the flow meter knob is turned clockwise, the flow decreases (and eventually will shut off the oxygen flow). If the knob is turned counterclockwise, the flow increases.
NOTEFor prescriptions of 5 LPM, be sure the ball is centered on the 5 liter line; the ball should not touch the red line. Setting the flow higher than 5 may cause the oxygen purity level to drop.
NOTEThe low-flow alarm will activate if the flow meter ball is set below .3 lpm. The unit will continue to run; however, the Service Required light will come on accompanied by an audible alarm. Adjust the flow meter to your prescribed flow.
- Your DeVilbiss concentrator is now ready for use, properly position the cannula or mask (Figure 6). Allow 20 minutes for oxygen concentrator to reach stated performance
