OXYGEN FLOW CONTROL
REGULATORS
Oxygen flow control regulators are
pressure reducing devices which lower
oxygen pressure from a cylinder to levels
which can be safely used by the user.
Oxygen flow control regulators are
intended for administration of oxygen to
patients who need increased oxygen
levels to improve their breathing
conditions. In addition, some models
may be used in emergency situations. In
any emergency situation, be sure to
contact a physician or EMS immediately.

Warnings
Set Up
Use
·Federal law restricts this device to
use by or on order of a physician.
Only use as prescribed by a
physician
·This unit should only be used on
patients who are breathing; do not
use to resuscitate non-breathing
patients
·Do not use with oil, grease or any
other flammable material
·Keep out of reach of children
·Do not smoke in an area where
oxygen is in use
·Do not use this equipment unless you
have been trained in its proper use
or are under supervision of
someone trained in its use
·If the pressure relief valve on the
underside of the regulator begins to
vent oxygen, turn off the system
and remove the unit until it can be
serviced
·Use ONLY manufacturer- approved
replacement parts
Warnings
·Inspect and install the cylinder using
instructions of qualified personnel.
Be sure to purge the cylinder valve
seat of debris
·Inspect the regulator for oil or grease.
If these are visible, DO NOT use the
regulator
·Be sure the sealing washer is in place
on the yoke inlet
·Slip the yoke over the cylinder post
and fit the pins into the holes on the
cylinder valve. The pins should fit
easily into these holes
·Turn the t-handle clockwise until the
screw point is seated in the dimple
on the cylinder valve. Be sure the
regulator is tightened snugly onto
the cylinder
·Attach the oxygen supply tubing to the
barbed outlet connection
·Be sure the regulator is in the "off" position by rotating the
knob counterclockwise to the "0" position
·For safety, be sure you are not directly in front of or behind
the regulator when opening the cylinder valve
·SLOWLY turn the cylinder valve on (counterclockwise),
about one full turn
·If you can hear a hissing sound, there is a leak in the
system. Turn the cylinder off and turn the regulator on to
relieve any built up pressure. Try tightening the regulator
to the cylinder and opening the cylinder again. If this
does not help, shut the system down again and contact a
service representative. NEVER attempt to repair a
regulator or cylinder yourself.
·Adjust the flow rate setting by turning the knob clockwise
until the desired setting shows through the window.
·If the cylinder pressure falls below 300 PSI, you should
exchange the cylinder for a full one
·To turn off the system, close the cylinder valve, wait for
oxygen to flow out of the regulator, and turn regulator to
the "0" position
·NEVER try to remove the regulator unless the cylinder is
off and pressure has been relieved
