INSTRUCTIONS
Introduction
Your oxygen concentrator is intended for individual use in the
home. It is an electronically operated device that separates
oxygen from room air. It provides high concentration of
oxygen directly to you through a nasal cannula. Clinical
studies have documented that oxygen concentrators are
therapeutically equivalent to other types of oxygen delivery
systems.
Your provider will show you how to use your oxygen
concentrator. He/She should be contacted with any questions
or problems regarding your oxygen concentrator. This
owner’s manual will tell you about your concentrator and will
serve as a reference as you use your concentrator.
Select a Location
You may select a room in your house where using your
oxygen concentrator would be most convenient. Your
concentrator can be easily rolled from room to room on its
casters.
Your oxygen concentrator will perform best when operated
under the following conditions. Usage in environments other
than those described may result in the need for increased
equipment maintenance. The air intake of the unit should be
located in a well ventilated area to avoid airborne pollutants
