Pneumatic Oxygen Conserver
SPECIAL NOTES
Disposal Instructions
This device and its packaging contain no hazardous materials. No special precautions need to be taken when disposing the device and/or it’s packaging.
Principles of Operation
The oxygen conserving regulator is designed to be used with high pressure oxygen systems. It consists of a cylinder connection, cylinder contents gauge (if equipped), high to low pressure regulator, orifice plate and a conserving demand module. The regulator reduces the high pressure of the cylinder to the working pressure of the orifice plate. The orifice plate uses calibrated orifices to deliver a selected flow to the conserving demand module. The conserving demand module controls the pulse size and timing to the patient. It supplies a pulse of oxygen at the beginning of each breath. This reduces the oxygen demand on the system and limits the drying of the airways. The flow is determined by setting the flow control knob to the prescribed flow. The oxygen is supplied to the patient though the cannula.

SPECIAL NOTES
DANGER
DO NOT SMOKE while using this device. Keep all matches, lit cigarettes or other sources of ignition out of the room in which this product is located and away from where oxygen is being delivered. NO SMOKING signs should be prominently displayed. Textiles and other materials that normally would not burn are easily ignited and burn with great intensity in oxygen enriched air. Failure to observe this warning can result in severe fire, property damage and cause physical injury or death.

Pneumatic Oxygen Conserver
INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTION
The oxygen conserving regulator includes a combination of low‐pressure regulator and an oxygen conserver, designed for use with a cylinder as an ambulatory oxygen system. It is capable of delivering a precise amount of supplemental oxygen at the optimal point in the breathing cycle. The conserver greatly increases the efficiency in the delivery of oxygen, maximizing the beneficial effects and eliminating unnecessary oxygen waste.
When we breathe, approximately one‐third of the time is spent inhaling and two‐thirds exhaling. As a result, oxygen delivered by continuous flow is wasted during exhalation. By eliminating oxygen flow during exhalation, a two‐thirds savings is possible. Additionally, the oxygen available during the very first part of inhalation contributes mostly to meet oxygen needs. The oxygen conserving regulator takes advantage of these facts to provide maximum efficiency in the delivery of oxygen. This device is designed to be an integral component of a lightweight, long‐lasting ambulatory oxygen system.

SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
DO NOT allow cylinders to tip or fall. Secure gas cylinders so they cannot fall. Ensure cylinder is always in upright position.
DO NOT allow oil from your hands or other sources to come into contact with the cylinder post valve. These substances may become flammable in the presence of oxygen and cause injury. Avoid touching the cylinder post valve whenever possible. Example of items to avoid are hand creams or lotions, cooking oils, suntan oils or sun blocks and similar oily products. If you use these types of products, wash your hands prior to use. If the bottle fitting should come in contact with such substances it should be cleaned off with a damp cloth prior to connecting it to the conserving regulator.
NEVER oil or lubricate the oxygen conserving regulator or cylinder post valve. NEVER use any penetrating oil or lubricant such as WD‐40® or 3‐in‐1 oil®. If continued difficulty is experienced contact your supplier for assistance.
DO NOT store cylinders near sources of heat or flame. DO NOT use while sleeping without consulting your healthcare provider. This product is designed to operate with a standard single lumen, adult oxygen nasal cannula with a maximum length of seven feet.
The cannula is for single patient use only.

WARNING
DO NOT allow oil from your hands or other sources to come into contact with the regulator gasket or cylinder post valve. These substances may become flammable in the presence of oxygen and cause injury. Avoid touching the cylinder post valve whenever possible. Example of items to avoid are hand creams or lotions, cooking oils, suntan oils or sun blocks and similar oily products. If you use these types of products, wash your hands prior to use. If the cylinder post valve should come in contact with such substances it should be cleaned off with a damp cloth prior to connecting it to the conserving regulator.
DO NOT direct flow of oxygen at any person or flammable material when opening the cylinder.
DO NOT use without CGA870 Seal Washer [Metal washer with elastomer seal].
DO NOT use plastic yoke seals [Plastic compression gasket].
Use CGA870 Seal Washer made of Viton® and brass.
The CGA870 Seal Washer supplied with the oxygen conserving regulator is reusable.
CAUTION

INSTRUCTIONS
DANGER
NEVER smoke in an area where oxygen is being administered.
NEVER use near any type of flame or flammable/explosive substances, vapors or atmosphere.
CAUTION
DO NOT use pediatric, low flow nasal cannulas or oxygen masks with the oxygen conserving regulator.
DO NOT block the cannula connection or kink cannula tubing when the oxygen conserving regulator is in use. This may damage the oxygen conserving regulator.
1. Prior to each use, inspect product for visible damage. DO NOT use if any damage is found.
WARNING
DO NOT direct flow of oxygen at any person, or flammable material when adjusting the flow dial.
2. Turn the selector switch on the oxygen conserving regulator to the “0” OFF position before opening the cylinder valve. FIGURE 4.2 on page 21.
3. To reduce the risk of rapid oxygen recompression and fire, open the cylinder valve slowly and completely so the pressure gauge moves slowly as it indicates the cylinder pressure.
Pneumatic Oxygen Conserver
18
Part No 1160840
SECTION 4—OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
4. Listen for leaks. If a leak is present, close the cylinder valve, check the CGA870 seal washer, and reinstall. If the leak persists, DO NOT use the equipment. Contact your Home Care Provider for repair.
5. Check the oxygen pressure gauge to verify the cylinder pressure.
6. Ensure that the vent hole on the side of the unit is not obstructed.
7. Position the cylinder so the oxygen cylinder valve outlet is pointing away from the user and any other person(s).
8. Attach a standard adult single lumen oxygen nasal cannula, no longer than seven feet to the product’s outlet fitting. DO NOT use pediatric, low flow nasal cannulas or oxygen masks with this product.
NOTE: A unit without cannula attached may pulse if set at position 1‐6.
9. Place the cannula over your ears and position the prongs in your nose according to the cannula manufacturer’s instructions, or as instructed by your Health Care provider. Refer to FIGURE 4.1.

SECTION 4—OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
NO OXYGEN is delivered in between settings. To obtain desired flow, the indicating pointer MUST align with a specific number on the dial.
To avoid injury to patient, ALWAYS confirm prescribed setting before administering to patient and monitor flow on a frequent basis.
10. Turn the selector switch until indicating pointer is aligned with the prescribed setting. FIGURE 4.2 on page 21.
NOTE: The continuous flow setting (CF) is designed for emergency use only. The amount of oxygen delivered when using the oxygen conserving regulator in continuous flow mode is preset to 2 L/min. (liters per minute). Remember that in this mode the oxygen will be consumed at a much faster rate. Return to another source before running out of oxygen. FIGURE 4.2 on page 21.
WARNING
When pointer on contents gauge enters red zone, it is recommended to replace or refill the cylinder.
11. Breathe through the nose and feel a pulse of oxygen as you inhale.
NOTE: When on a pulse setting, there is flow or a pulse only at the beginning of each breath. If you do not feel the pulse at the beginning of each breath, check the setting. If there is still no pulse, turn dial to 2 L/min. continuous setting. FIGURE 4.2 on page 21.
NOTE: Because each patient’s breathing pattern is different and the environment varies, it may be difficult to feel some low setting pulses.

Oxygen Cylinder Duration
The total delivery of oxygen via the conserver is related to the breathing rates, it is user adaptive in that the total oxygen delivered per minute will automatically adjust with user need, as expressed by increased or decreased breathing rates. For example, at all settings, twice as much oxygen per minute will be delivered if one breathes twenty (20) times per minute as compared with ten (10) times per minute.
