oxygen contents
Notes:
1. After each fill, do not try to refill the H300-50
Portable again for at least 30 minutes. This will
prevent the possibility of the H300-50 Portable
wasting oxygen and prevent the vent valve from
potentially freezing.
2. The number of times that you have to fill up or
top off your H300-50 Portable depends on which
setting is prescribed by your doctor and the
frequency of your breath rate. On average, a
setting of 2 in demand mode lasts about 6–7
hours. However, the actual time may vary
22
H300-50 Home Use Guide
How To Use Your H300-50 Personal Oxygen System
depending on your particular circumstances. For
example, if you use your H300-50 Portable in the
rain, excess moisture may reduce oxygen
duration of the H300-50 Portable.
3. To ensure optimum pressure for proper oxygen
delivery, wait approximately 10–12 minutes after
each fill before using the H300-50 Portable.
4. The H300-50 Portable can be filled from Mark III
and Mark 4 Reservoirs.
23
How To Use Your H300-50 Personal Oxygen System
Breathing From the H300-50 Portable
In order to breathe from your H300-50 Portable, you
must do so through a dual-lumen nasal cannula. The
nasal cannula has two connections at the H300-50
Portable. One connection is used to sense when you
inhale, the other connection is used to supply oxygen
into your nose as you inhale.
Connect a dual-lumen cannula to your H300-50
Portable as follows:
1. Attach both ends of the dual-lumen cannula to the
H300-50 Portable as shown below. Either end of
the dual-lumen cannula may be attached to either
connector on the H300-50 Portable (Figure 8).

2. The H300-50 Portable has two delivery modes:
continuous and demand. Turn the flow control
knob on the top of the H300-50 Portable
clockwise from 0 to .75 for continuous flow and,
continuing clockwise, from 1-4 for demand flow.
(Figure 9).
Figure 9: Setting the flow rate
Set your rate to the setting prescribed by your
physician. The flow setting value should be
clearly readable in the center of the window. The
H300-50 Portable will not deliver oxygen to you
if the flow control knob is set between flow settings.
When a demand mode setting is selected, oxygen
will be delivered only while you inhale. You
should notice a small pulse at the beginning of
each breath. Oxygen is delivered during this
pulse, and continues as long as you inhale.
25
How To Use Your H300-50 Personal Oxygen System
Oxygen flow stops when you stop inhaling. It is
normal for the device to occasionally skip a
breath or to pulse twice in one breath.
When continuous mode is selected, oxygen is
delivered continuously at the rate displayed on
the flow control knob. For example, the .75 setting delivers continuous flow oxygen at .75 L/
min.

Note: Your use time may vary substantially from the use
times listed in the table. You should learn through
experience how long the H300-50 Portable will last
given your particular breathing patterns and activity
level.
CAUTION: You must use a dual-lumen cannula of 7foot length or shorter (see accessories list at the end of
this manual) to ensure proper oxygen delivery from
the H300-50 Portable. Make sure both connections of
the dual-lumen cannula are firmly attached to the
H300-50 Portable oxygen outlet and sensor connectors.
3. With the tips of the cannula and lip rest pointing
downward and toward you, place the two tips
into your nostrils. Run the tubing over your ears
and then slide the sleeve up under your chin until
the cannula feels comfortable (Figure 10). Then
breathe normally.
Figure 10: Cannula placement
28
H300-50 Home Use Guide
How To Use Your H300-50 Personal Oxygen System
Notes:
• Make sure that the tips remain in your nostrils
and do not slide to one side.
• Occasionally water droplets caused by exhaled
humidity may accumulate in the cannula. This
may disrupt the operation of the oxygen
conserving device. If this happens, replace the
moist cannula with a dry one. Allow the moist
cannula to dry before using it again.
• Currently, there are two dual-lumen cannula
designs available for use with the H300-50.
One cannula provides sensing and delivery of
oxygen in each nostril. This is the best one to
use when experiencing a blocked nasal
passage. The second provides oxygen only to
one side of the nose and senses when to provide
oxygen on the other. Also, the tips of this
second type are slightly smaller and softer.
29
How To Use Your H300-50 Personal Oxygen System
4. The contents indicator will show approximately
how much liquid oxygen remains in the H300-50
Portable. To ensure you have enough oxygen to
meet your needs, check the indicator periodically.
When checking the contents, remove any carry
accessories and make sure your nasal cannula is
not pulling on the H300-50 Portable.

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 H300-50
Portable.
1. The H300-50 Portable does not pulse after
filling.
If during the filling process, the H300-50 Portable is disengaged with the vent valve lever down,
pressure may be reduced within the H300-50 Portable causing a delay in the conserving device
function. It may require as much as 60 minutes to
restore adequate pressure for proper oxygen flow.
Additionally, improper filling or lower than normal operating pressure in the Reservoir will contribute to the H300-50 Portable not pulsing.
2. The H300-50 Portable makes a hissing sound.
Hissing can occur to maintain the correct operating pressure within the H300-50 Portable. It is
most likely to hiss after filling or when the position of the H300-50 Portable is changed. Hissing
can last for approximately 10 minutes after filling. Additionally, it can occur when the flow control valve is at a low setting.
35
Troubleshooting
3. Excessive frost and hissing.
•
Some hissing and frosting on the H300-50
Portable is normal. If, however, the hissing
sound from the H300-50 Portable continues
after a fill or anytime during usage, combined
with excessive frosting on the H300-50
Portable, stop using the H300-50 Portable
and contact your Homecare Provider.
•
Excessive frost formation on the H300-50
Portable 30 minutes after a fill while the Flow
Control knob is in the OFF position may be a
result of possible system malfunction. Stop
using the H300-50 Portable and contact your
Homecare Provider for service.
4. The H300-50 Portable stops pulsing during
use.
36
•
Ensure that both connections of the duallumen cannula are firmly attached to the
Oxygen Outlet and Sense connectors.
•
Change the cannula if water droplets are
present from humidified exhaled gas.
Replacing the cannula with a dry one
enhances the ability of the H300-50 Portable
to pulse.
•
Ensure that the cannula is not kinked or
pinched.
•
Ensure that the cannula tips remain in your
nostrils and do not slide to one side.
•
Ensure that there is oxygen in the H300-50
Portable.
H300-50 Home Use Guide
Troubleshooting
•
With the cannula on, close your mouth and
breathe only through your nose to verify that
the H300-50 Portable has stopped pulsing.
5. The H300-50 Portable does not fill.
•
Verify that there is oxygen in the Reservoir.
If the Reservoir has a pressure gauge, make
sure it reads between 47-psi and 58-psi.
•
Ensure that the H300-50 Portable and
Reservoir fill connectors are fully engaged
throughout the filling process.
6. The H300-50 Portable vent valve does not
close properly at the end of the filling process.
If the vent valve fails to close and the hissing
sound and oxygen vapor cloud continue, carefully remove the H300-50 Portable by gently
rotating the Portable counter-clockwise and lifting from the Reservoir. Venting from the bottom
of the H300-50 Portable will stop in a few minutes. Keeping the H300-50 Portable upright,
allow it to warm until you can close the vent
valve. The H300-50 Portable may require as
much as 60 minutes to restore adequate pressure
for proper oxygen flow.
37
Troubleshooting
7. The H300-50 Portable does not disengage

WARNING: Do not bend over the Reservoir fill
connector when disengaging the Portable. Contact
with liquid oxygen can cause personal injury.
The H300-50 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 H300-50 Portable
when the ice has melted. To prevent the Reservoir and H300-50 Portable from freezing
together, always wipe the female fill connector
on the Reservoir and the male fill connector on
the H300-50 Portable with a clean, dry, oil-free
cloth before filling.
