Oxygen Conserving Cylinder
SECTION 4—INSPECTION AND COMPRESSOR INTERFACE
! DANGER
Improper filling or abuse of this cylinder, or failure to follow
these safety instructions may cause serious bodily injury or
death. High pressure oxidizing gas vigorously accelerates
combustion.
DO NOT alter or modify cylinder or related components.
DO NOT use Oil or Grease. Keep cylinder, cylinder valve, all
equipment and connections free of oil and grease to avoid
violent ignition resulting in serious bodily injury or death.
! WARNING
For medical applications. Use only as directed by a licensed
practitioner. Uninterrupted use of high concentrations of oxygen
over a long duration, without monitoring its effect on oxygen
content of arterial blood, may be harmful.
Oxygen Cylinders filled by the Venture HomeFill
shall be used for personal use only. "Not to be
filled for resale or use by professional users".
OXYGEN
2
This cylinder is to be used with the Invacare Venture
HomeFill system. This cylinder contains 93 ++ 3%
oxygen produced by an oxygen concentrator using
the pressure swing adsorption process.
DO NOT handle cylinder or use contents until you are
professionally trained, including emergency procedures.
Use in accordance with Venture HomeFill Operator’s Manual.
Open valve slowly. Close valve after each use and when empty.
Secure cylinder during storage and use. No smoking in cylinder
area. Keep away from heat, flame and spark. Keep out of
reach of children. DO NOT drop.
Transfilling of this gas is performed by Venture HomeFill Only.
Cylinders that have been refinished and/or exposed to
elevated temperatures must be hydrostatically tested before
filling. Cylinder temperature should not exceed 125°F (52°C).
Aluminum cylinders subject to the action of fire or heated to
temperatures in excess of 350°F must be withdrawn from
service and condemned by trained personnel. DO NOT use
caustic paint strippers. Valve and safety relief devices must be
removed and replaced by trained and authorized
personnel. DO NOT alter or change valve assembly.

your dealer/home care equipment provider.
2. Be sure regulator is in the “Off” position. Align “Off” with
the indicating pointer.
3. Position the cylinder so the oxygen cylinder valve outlet is
pointing away from the user and any other person(s).
WARNING
DO NOT direct flow of oxygen at any person, or
flammable material when adjusting the flow dial.
4. Attach a standard adult single lumen oxygen nasal
cannula, no longer than seven feet to the product’s outlet
according to the cannula manufacturer’s instructions. DO

SECTION 5—OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
5. Place the cannula over
your ears and position
the prongs in your nose
as instructed by your
Health Care provider or
cannula manufacturer.
Refer to FIGURE 5.1.

FIGURE 5.1 Cannula
Placement
WARNING
When pointer on contents gauge enters red zone, it is
recommended to refill the cylinder on the Invacare
HomeFill Compressor.
NO OXYGEN is delivered in between settings. To obtain
desired flow, the indicating pointer must align with a
specific number on the dial.
To avoid injury to patient, ALWAYS confirm prescribed
setting before administering to patient and monitor flow
on a frequent basis.
Only use Invacare Corporation HF2PCM2 carrying bag.
7. Breathe through the nose and feel a pulse of oxygen as you
inhale.
NOTE: When on a pulse setting, there is flow or a pulse only at the
beginning of each breath. If you do not feel the pulse at the beginning
of each breath, check the setting.
NOTE: Because each patient’s breathing pattern is different and the
environment varies, it may be difficult to feel some low setting
pulses.
