Adjusting the Pulse Flow Setting

CAUTION!

Risk of Minor Injury or Discomfort

It is very important to select the prescribed oxygen flow setting. This will ensure you will receive the therapeutic amount of oxygen according to your medical condition:

– DO NOT increase or decrease the flow setting unless a change has been prescribed by your physician or therapist.

– The therapeutic effectiveness of the prescribed oxygen flow setting should be periodically reassessed.

– Use only the length of cannula that was used to determine the prescribed oxygen flow setting.

– The pulse flow settings of this concentrator might not correspond to continuous flow oxygen.

– The settings of other models or brands of oxygen therapy equipment do not correspond to the settings of this concentrator.

1194969-A-00

1.

With the concentrator running, press the flow selection button

B to increase the pulse flow setting by one increment.

2.

Press the flow selection button additional times, as needed, until your prescribed flow setting (P1 to P4) is shown on the display screen C.

The concentrator has four pulse flow settings. When the maximum pulse flow setting P4 is reached, the pulse flow setting returns to setting P1 with the next button press.

Each time the flow setting is changed, an audible beep will occur and the display screen backlight will turn on for five seconds.

If a message other than the pulse flow setting is shown on the display screen, the adjusted pulse flow setting will temporarily be displayed for five seconds after pressing the flow selection button.

The concentrator pulse flow setting at power-up will be the same flow setting selected the last time the unit was turned off.

Battery Life and Management

Time away from home is greatly extended by combining the use of the

AC power adapter, DC power cable and the concentrator’s batteries.

To ensure the battery(s) maintain their optimal charge level, utilize the AC power adapter whenever you have access to electric power.

Utilize the DC power cable whenever you are in a vehicle.

CAUTION!

Risk of Minor Injury or Discomfort

Battery exhaustion will result in a loss of supplemental oxygen. To ensure proper supplemental oxygen delivery during a power outage:

– Plug your portable concentrator into an alternate power source.

– Have an alternate source of oxygen available that does not require a power source.

What to Do

When you first receive your concentrator, fully charge the battery(s) overnight.

Keep your battery(s) fully charged when using the concentrator on a daily basis.

Your concentrator battery(s) can be recharged at any time.

Always ensure the concentrator battery(s) are recharged as soon as possible after they become fully discharged. The battery(s) may be permanently degraded if left fully discharged for an extended length of time.

Check the status of your concentrator battery(s) once a month if you are not using your concentrator on a daily basis. Battery(s) should be maintained at two illuminated bars worth of charge if not using the concentrator on a daily basis.

Heat is the worst enemy of a battery. Allow plenty of air to circulate around the concentrator so that the battery(s) is kept as cool as possible when in use and when charging.

What Not to Do

DO NOT use or leave the concentrator or battery(s) in excessive heat or cold.

DO NOT store or leave the concentrator or battery(s) in car trunks, etc. for extended periods of time.

DO NOT store battery(s) fully charged (four bars illuminated on the unit’s battery gauge) if you are going to store your concentrator for any time greater than a day. Recharge or discharge the battery to two bars (50% charge) only. Storing a battery with a full charge may degrade its useful life.

DO NOT leave your battery(s) installed into the concentrator when the concentrator is not going to be used for more than a day. The battery(s) will lose charge while plugged into the concentrator even with the concentrator turned off.

Invacare® Platinum™ Mobile

8 Technical Data

8.1

Technical Description

The Invacare Platinum Mobile uses a molecular sieve and pressure swing adsorption methodology to produce the oxygen gas output.

Ambient air enters the device, is filtered and then compressed. This compressed air is then directed into a nitrogen adsorbing sieve bed.

Concentrated oxygen exits the opposite end of the sieve bed and is directed into an oxygen reservoir from which it is delivered to the patient.

The oxygen purity level of the output gas ranges from 87% to 95.6%.

The oxygen is delivered to the patient through the use of a nasal cannula. A pulse dose delivery method is used. The concentrator detects the start of patient inhalation and delivers a measured pulse of oxygen. No further oxygen is delivered until the next patient inhalation is detected. The volume of oxygen delivered each minute is a fixed amount based on the selected pulse flow setting. The volume of each oxygen pulse will vary with the patient’s breath rate such that the fixed minute volume is maintained.

The Invacare Platinum Mobile is capable of operation by the patient in a home, institution, vehicle, or other environments outside the home.

Device standard power options include an AC to DC switching power adapter operating from an AC power outlet (100–240VAC,

50–60 Hertz nominal), a DC power cable operating from an accessory outlet typically found in a vehicle type environment (12

VDC nominal), and up to two rechargeable batteries.

No specific product knowledge or training is required to operate the product other than what is contained in this manual.

Service information will be available on request to qualified technical personnel ONLY.
