Why Your Physician Prescribed Supplemental Oxygen
Today, many people suffer from heart, Lung, and other respiratory diseases .Many of these people
can benefit from supplemental oxygen therapy. Your body requires a steady supply of oxygen to
function properly. Your physician prescribed supplemental oxygen for you because you are not
getting enough oxygen from room air alone .Supplemental oxygen will increase the amount of
oxygen that your body receives.
Supplemental oxygen is not addictive .Your physician prescribed a specific oxygen flow to improve
symptoms such as headaches, drowsiness, confusion, fatigue, or increased irritability. If these
symptoms persist after you begin your supplemental oxygen program, consult your physician.
How Your Drive Solstice Oxygen Concentrator works
Oxygen concentrators are the most reliable, efficient, and convenient source of supplemental
oxygen available today, the 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 concentrator filters the oxygen in a room, it will not affect the normal
amount of oxygen in your room.
IMPORTANT PARTS OF YOUR CONCENTRATOR
Please take time to familiarize yourself with your D rive Sols ti c e oxygen concentrator before
operating.

Oxyge n Tubing Conn e c ti on with Humidification:
If your physician has prescribed an oxygen humidifier as part of therapy,
Follow these steps:
a. Fill the humidifier bottle with distilled water. Do not overfill.
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.
c. Attach the oxygen tubing directly to the humidifier bottle outlet fitting.(Figure 5)
Your physician has prescribed either a nasal cannula, catheter, or face mask, in most
cases, they are already attached to the oxygen tubing .If not, follow the manufactureʼs
instructions for attachment.

A cc essori es
The accessories below are approved for use with the Drive Solstice Oxygen Concentrator:
Bubble Humidifier(200 ml Capacity)
Cannula (disposable)
Cannula w/ 2.1m(7 ft) Oxygen Tubing (disposable)
Oxygen Outlet Connector
Oxygen Tubing (disposable)
.
N OTE- The use of certain humidifiers and accessories not specified above may impair the oxygen
concentratorʼs performance.
N OTE- If the Service Required light illuminates and the audible signal alarms but the unit is not
operating, there is no power to the unit. Refer to the Minor Troubleshooting chart on page
12 and contact your medical provider.
The OCI device is a device within your concentrator that monitors the oxygen produced by your
unit. When the units is turned “ON,” all four light (Power, Low Oxygen, Normal Oxygen, and Service
Required) on the front panel will illuminate briefly. After a few minutes (approx. 3 mins), only the
Power and Normal Oxygen lights will remain lit.
The lights on the front panel are defined as follows:
Green Normal Oxygen light-acceptable oxygen level.(The LED will display “Normal Oxygen”)
Yellow Low Oxygen light-below an acceptable oxygen level. (The LED
will display “Low
Oxygen”)
If the oxygen purity falls below the acceptable level, the green Normal Oxygen light will shut off
and the yellow Low Oxygen light will illuminate. Switch to your reserve oxygen system. Refer to the
Troubleshooting section in this guide on page 11 and contact youʼre medical provider.
As an added safety feature should the oxygen purity continue to drop, an intermittent audible
signal will sound. Contact youʼre medical provider immediately. Do not attempt any other
maintenance.
