Introduction
Your HELiOS™ Universal™ Reservoir is designed to store
liquid oxygen. The Universal Reservoir is available in
three models: the U-46EU and U-46SW hold 110 pounds
(49.9 kg) of liquid oxygen. And, the U-36EU holds 85
pounds (38.56 kg) of liquid oxygen.
The Universal Reservoir can be used to fill both HELiOS
Portable models H300 and H850, and Companion
Portable models C1000, C1000 Transport, C550 and
C500.
It is recommended that you breathe your prescribed
oxygen rate directly from the Portable. You can, however,
connect the HELiOS Portables to the Universal Reservoir.
See the section Connecting the HELiOS Portables to the
Universal Reservoir.
When you are in your home and not moving about, such
as in the evening or while you are sleeping, you are
encouraged to connect the HELiOS Portable to the
Universal Reservoir with an oxygen supply line through
the external flow control valve provided with your
Reservoir (demand mode only for the H850) . When the
HELiOS Portable is connected to a Universal Reservoir in
this manner, the oxygen you breathe is supplied by the
Reservoir.
Or, for continuous oxygen flow, connect a single-lumen
cannual directly to the external flow control valve.
Your oxygen supplier or home care provider must refill
your Reservoir periodically depending upon your rate of
oxygen use.

connector on the Reservoir and female fill connector
on the Portable (Figure 2).
Figure 2: Clean Fill Connectors
12
Universal Reservoir Home Use Guide
3. Position the Portable over the recessed area in the top
of the Reservoir. (Figure 3).
4. Carefully lower the Portable into place, ensuring that
the fill connectors are properly aligned.
5. Place one or both hands on top of the Portable and
press straight down directly over the fill connector,
being careful not to depress the release button on the
Reservoir when engaging (Figure 3). This will lower
the Portable approximately 3/8 inch (10 mm).
Continue to apply downward force to ensure the fill
connectors remain engaged.
6. While holding the Portable in the fill position
(Figure 3), pull down and hold the vent valve lever in
the open position (Figure 4). Open is 90° from the
normal OFF position. A hissing noise should be
noticeable. During filling, maintain a slight downward
force on the Portable with one hand to keep the
Portable steady, and maintain proper filling position.
Do not allow the Portable to move upward until fill is
complete.
WARNING: Do not open the vent valve during non-fill
use. Excessive discharge of liquid oxygen could create
a fire hazard and/or cause personal injury.

15
Using the Universal Reservoir
Note: When the Portable is empty, fill time is usually
between 60 and 80 seconds for the H850 and 25
and 60 seconds for the H300.
The maximum fill time for the C1000 is 1 minute,
45 seconds; for the C1000 Transport, 2 minutes; for
the C500/C550, 1 minute, 30 seconds. Fill times,
however, will typically be less than the maximum
ratings. Saturation pressure of the reservoir and the
temperature of the portable both affect fill times.
Also,the amount of time to fill the Portable depends
on the amount of oxygen remaining in the Portable.
WARNING: Do not leave the Portable unattended
during the filling operation.
7. When you notice a change in the sound of venting gas
followed by a dense, white vapor forming around the
Reservoir cover, close the Portable vent valve by
returning the vent lever to the upright position.
CAUTION: If the vent valve fails to close and the
hissing continues, remove the Portable by depressing
the Portable release button on the Reservoir. Ensure
that the Portable is kept upright and is not tipped at all
during this time. The Portable will stop venting in a
few minutes. Allow the Portable to warm until you can
close the vent valve. The Portable may require as
much as 60 minutes to restore adequate pressure for
accurate oxygen flow. An alternate source of oxygen,
such as a flow control valve attached to the Reservoir,
can be used if needed.
Note: For shorter planned use times, you can partially fill
the Portable by closing the vent valve sooner than
normal. The Portable will then be lighter to carry.

Figure 5: Disengaging the Portable
17
Using the Universal Reservoir
CAUTION: If the Portable will not disengage easily
from the Reservoir, they may have become frozen
together. Do not use force. Simply allow a few minutes
for the frozen parts to warm, then disengage the
Portable when the ice has melted.
WARNING: If a major liquid oxygen leak from the
Reservoir fill connector occurs when you disengage the
Portable — that is, a steady stream of liquid oxygen —
step away from the Reservoir and notify your oxygen
supplier immediately. Stay away from the Reservoir
until your supplier ensures that it is safe.
CAUTION: If a minor liquid oxygen leak from the
Reservoir fill connector occurs when you disengage the
Portable, re-engage and disengage the portable to help
dislodge any ice or other obstruction. If the liquid
oxygen leak persists, notify your oxygen supplier.
Note: Immediately after filling, you may hear a slight
hissing sound from the Portable. This is normal and
will stop after a few minutes.
CAUTION: If the hissing sound from the Portable
does not stop within a few minutes after a fill, and
excessive visible frosting develops on the Portable, see
Note 4 in the Troubleshooting section.
9. Check the oxygen contents indicator, Figure 6, to
make sure the Portable is filled to the desired level.
The amount of liquid oxygen contained in the
Portable is measured by a built in spring scale. To
operate the contents indicator:
a. Lift the Portable by the contents indicator strap.
b. Push the bottom backside of the H850 or H300
Portable so that it is straight up and down.
c. Observe the green bar that displays the liquid
oxygen contents level inside the clear window.
18
Universal Reservoir Home Use Guide
Using the Universal Reservoir
d. On the Companion models, unsnap the plastic
buckle and lift the Portable by the end of the
carrying strap that is closest to the indicator.
The pointer indicates approximately how
much oxygen remains in the Portable.
Notes:
1. On the Companion models C1000/C1000
Transport, the contents indicator is located on top
of the Portable. On Companion models C500/
C550, the contents indicator is on the side of the
Portable near the top.
2. Do not try to overfill the Portable. Once you hear
the change in the sound of venting gas and see the
cloud of white vapor, the Portable is full.
Continuing the fill process will not put any more
oxygen in the Portable. Overfilling may cause
drops of liquid oxygen to spray from the bottom
of the Portable.
3. After each fill, do not try to refill the Portable
again for at least 30 minutes. This will prevent
the possibility of the Portable wasting oxygen
and prevent the vent valve from potentially
freezing.
4. The number of times you have to fill up or top off
your Portable depends upon your particular
circumstances. Two factors that may affect your
use times are the prescribed setting you use and
the frequency of your breath rate.

Universal Reservoir Home Use Guide
Using the Universal Reservoir
Connecting the HELiOS Portables
to the Universal Reservoir
When you are in your home and not moving about, such
as in the evening or while you are sleeping, you are
encouraged to connect the Portable (H300 or H850 only)
to the Universal Reservoir with an oxygen supply line.
For the H850 Portable, this configuration is to be used in
demand mode only; that is, D1.5 through D4.
To keep from wasting oxygen, you should connect the
Portable to the Reservoir at least 10 hours per 24 hour
period. It is important that the Portable be nearly empty so
that the oxygen from the Portable comes directly from the
Reservoir. This will maximize the efficiency of the
system.
21
Using the Universal Reservoir
External Flow Control Valve
An external flow control valve is provided with your
Universal Reservoir (Figure 7). It should be attached as
shown in the illustration below.

Universal Reservoir Home Use Guide
CAUTION: When the Universal Reservoir and the
Portable are connected, avoid putting the unrolled
supply line in places where it might be damaged or
tripped over. One sign of damage is frost on the supply
line, indicating that a puncture or cut is causing an
oxygen leak. If this occurs, disconnect the supply line
from the Reservoir.
4. To disconnect the supply line from the Portable,
push the release button and gently remove the
supply line from the connector.
5. When disconnecting the supply line from the
external flow control valve, first set the valve to
zero.
Note: If you need continuous flow, you can breathe
directly off the Universal Reservoir via the external
flow control valve. With the external flow control
valve set to zero, connect a single-lumen cannula to
the external flow control valve output with a female
tapered barb as shown in Figure 10.
Set the prescribed flow rate on the flow control
valve. No Portable is necessary in this
configuration.
The Puritan Bennett part number for this external
flow control valve is 10000554. Contact your home
care provider for further details on setup and use.
Also, see the section External Flow Control Valve
in this manual.
WARNING: Use only the manufacturer-specified

Universal Reservoir Home Use Guide
Tro u b l e s h o o t i n g
The following information is intended to help you
troubleshoot and solve simple operational problems that
you may experience when using your Universal
Reservoir.
1. The Portable does not fill.
•
Verify that there is oxygen in the Reservoir by
pushing the contents indicator button. Make sure
the Reservoir pressure gauge reads between 20.5psi (1.4 bar) and 28-psi (1.9 bar). Contact your
home care provider if the reading is not within
this specified range.
•
Ensure that the Portable and Reservoir fill
connectors are fully engaged throughout the
filling process.
2. Frost forms on the oxygen supply line connected to
the external flow control valve on the Reservoir.
Frost on the supply line is most likely the result of a
leaky connection or a split in the line. If the connection at the external flow control valve outlet is leaking, keep tightening the nut until the leak stops. If the
supply line is split or damaged, disconnect the line
from the external flow control valve and contact your
home care provider.
31
Troubleshooting
3. The Portable does not disengage easily from the
Reservoir after filling.
WARNING: Do not bend over the Reservoir fill
connector when disengaging the Portable. Contact
with liquid oxygen can cause personal injury.
The Portable and Reservoir fill connectors may have
become frozen. Do not use force. Allow a few minutes for the frozen parts to warm, then disengage the
Portable when the ice has melted. To prevent the Reservoir and Portable from freezing together, always
wipe the male fill connector on the Reservoir and the
female fill connector on the Portable with a clean, dry,
oil-free cloth before filling.
4. Excessive frost and hissing
•
Some hissing and frosting on the Portable is
normal. If, however, the hissing sound from the
Portable continues with excessive frosting on the
Portable, stop using the Portable and contact your
Homecare Provider.
•
Excessive frost formation on the Portable 30
minutes after a fill while the flow control valve
knob is in the OFF position may be a result of
possible system malfunction. Stop using the
Portable and contact your Homecare Provider for
service.
Note: At continuous flow rates greater than 6 LPM, it is
normal to see some frost build up on the Reservoir
shroud and the liquid oxygen outlet connector.
32
Universal Reservoir Home Use Guide
Accessories
The following accessories are available to help you obtain
the most benefit from your Universal Reservoir System.
Dual-Lumen Cannula
An oxygen cannula delivers oxygen from the H850
or H300 Portable to your nose. The cannula has two
connections: One senses when you inhale; the other
delivers oxygen to you while you inhale.
Oxygen Supply Line
The supply line is used to connect your H850 or
H300 Portable to your Reservoir. When the Portable
is connected, the oxygen you breathe comes from
the Reservoir. For instructions on how to connect the
supply line, refer to the section in this manual,
Connecting the HELiOS Portables to the Universal
Reservoir.
Roller Base
The roller base allows the liquid oxygen delivery
person to roll the Reservoir to your door before
taking it from the house to fill. It is not
recommended to patients to roll the Reservoir
around frequently in the house. The Reservoir is
very heavy and should not be tipped over.
33
Accessories
You may also be instructed to use a humidifier bottle with
an external flow control valve (Figure 15). When using an
external flow control valve, your oxygen supply company
will supply you with a supply line and a single-lumen
