1. Introduction
1.1 Intended Use
The Mini-Plus Compressor Nebulizer System is intended to provide a source of compressed air for aerosol
therapy. It is used in conjunction with a jet (pneumatic) nebulizer to produce medicated aerosols for inhalation
by pediatric and adult patients with respiratory symptoms.
CAUTION - Indications for therapy include asthma, chronic bronchitis, infection of the upper
respiratory tract, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other respiratory disorders
in accordance with a medical doctor’s prescription. Except the usage mentioned above,
please do not use this product for any other purpose. This device can be used with adults
or pediatric patients under physician’s prescription.
1.2 Safety Precaution Instruction
When using this electrical product, especially when children are present, one should always follow basic safety
precautions. Do not install, maintain or operate this equipment without reading, understanding and following the
proper Mini-Plus Compressor System instruction manual, otherwise injury or damage may result. Important
information is highlighted by using the following bulletin:
DANGER- Urgent safety information for hazards that will cause serious injury or death.
WARNING- Important safety information for hazards that might cause serious injury or property
damage.
CAUTION - Information for preventing damage to the product.
For 120V onlyThis appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this
plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the
plug.
If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify the plug in any way.

CAUTION
- The Mini-Plus Compressor is designed for intermittent use only. Do not operate it
continuously for more than 30 minutes for a single use without turning it off and
following a cooling period for least 30 minutes.
1.
Before each use inspect the Mini-Plus Compressor and nebulizer cup assembly for damage or wear,
replace as needed.
2.
Place the Mini-Plus Compressor on a table or other flat stable surface. Be sure you can easily reach the
controls when seated. Do not use this device on the floor.
3.
With the power switch in the O (OFF) position, plug the power cord into an appropriate electrical wall
outlet.
4.
Connect one end of the tubing to the compressor air-outlet connector.
5.
Assemble the nebulizer cup and add indicated medication to the nebulizer’s cup before use.

3.2 Safety Overload
NOTE - Do not exceed 30 minutes of continuous operation.
1.
The motor of this device has a built-in thermal overload protector. Should the motor overheat, the protector
will automatically shut off the motor. Should this occur, turn the I/O (ON/OFF) switch to the O (OFF)
position and allow the motor to cool down for approximately 30 minutes before turn it on again.
2.
If the overload protector shuts off the motor frequently, you may have an unstable voltage situation.

Interference may occur in the vicinity of equipment marked with
the following symbol:
80 MHz to 2.5 3 V/m
NOTE 1: At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
NOTE 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and reflection from
structures, objects and people.
a) The ISM (industrial, scientific and medical) bands between 150 kHz and 80 MHz are 6,765 MHz to 6,795 MHz;13,553 MHz to 13,567
MHz; 26,957 MHz to 27,283 MHz; and 40,66 MHz to 40,70 MHz.
b) The compliance levels in the ISM frequency bands between 150 kHz and 80 MHz and in the frequency range 80 MHz to 2.5 GHz are
intended to decrease the likelihood that mobile/portable communications equipment could cause interference if it is inadvertently
brought into patient areas. For this reason, an additional factor of 10/3 is used in calculating the recommended separation distance for
transmitters in these frequency ranges.
c) Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land
mobile radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To
assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered. If the
measured field strength in the location in which the device is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the device
should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as
reorienting or relocating the device.
d) Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.
