A mask should not be used unless the CPAP or bi-level system is turned on and operating properly. The vent hole or holes associated with the mask should never be blocked. Explanation of the Warning: CPAP and bi-level systems are intended to be used with special masks with connectors which have vent holes to allow continuous flow of air out of the mask. When the CPAP or bi-level machine is turned on and functioning properly, new air from the CPAP or bi-level machine flushes the exhaled air out through the attached mask exhalation port. However, when the CPAP or bi-level machine is not operating, enough fresh air will not be provided through the mask, and exhaled air may be rebreathed. Rebreathing of exhaled air for longer than several minutes can, in some circumstances, lead to suffocation. This warning applies to most models of CPAP and bi-level systems. • At low CPAP pressures, the flow through the exhalation port may be inadequate to clear all exhaled gas from the tubing. Some rebreathing may occur. • At a fixed flow rate of supplemental oxygen flow the inhaled oxygen concentration will vary, depending on the pressure settings, patient breathing pattern, mask selection and the leak rate. This warning applies to most CPAP or bilevel systems. • If oxygen is used with the CPAP or bi-level system, the oxygen flow must be turned off when the system is not in operation. Explanation of the Warning: When the CPAP or bi-level system is not in operation and the oxygen flow is left on, oxygen delivered in the ventilator tubing may accumulate within the CPAP or bi-level system enclosure. Oxygen accumulated in the CPAP or bi-level system will create a risk of fire. This warning applies to most CPAP or bi-level systems. • Oxygen accelerates fires. Keep the CPAP or bi-level system and oxygen container away from heat, open flames, any oil substance, or other sources of ignition. Do not smoke in the area near the device or the oxygen container. • Some users may experience skin redness. If this occurs, consult your healthcare professional. Important! Hand wash mask before use.
