Flood is the output of the Flowmeter when the flow indicator is beyond the highest calibrated graduation. The Flood
range is as indicated on the Flowmeter labeling.
Transport / Storage Requirements: -40˚F to 140˚F (-40˚C to 60˚C)
The gas and inlet pressures are indicated on the Flow Tube or Flowmeter body.
Note: Storage or transport outside the specified range may cause damage to the Flowmeter.
The above Flowmeter models are calibrated at a specified inlet pressure of 70°F (21°C) standard atmospheric pressure.
International models are calibrated per specifications marked on Flow Tube or Flowmeter body.
MRI WARNING: This product contains a magnetic, ferrous material that may affect the result of an MRI.

Operating Instructions
WARNING: Read this User Manual before installing or operating the Flowmeter.
CAUTION: Flowmeters must be operated with the Flow Tube in a vertical, upright position.
CAUTION: Only personnel instructed and trained in its use should operate this Flowmeter.
CAUTION: The Pediatric Models including 0-200 CC and 0-1.5 LPM contains a glass Flow Tube which is fragile.
Special care should be observed to avoid breaking the Flow Tube.
CAUTION: Inspect the Flowmeter for visual damage before use, DO NOT USE if damaged.
1. Turn Flowmeter off by turning knob fully clockwise.
CAUTION: Overtightening the knob when turning the Flowmeter off will cause damage.
WARNING: The Flow Tube specifies the gas and pressure required. The accuracy will be affected if a
different pressure, other than the one specified, is used.
2. Connect the Flowmeter to the appropriate gas source. The appropriate gas and pressure are specified on the Flow
Tube or Flowmeter body.
CAUTION: Ensure all connections are tight and leak free.
CAUTION: Only use an oxygen-safe leak detector.
CAUTION: Attaching accessories to the outlet (which may increase resistance to outlet flow) may change
indicated flow but will not affect the accuracy of the flow.
3. Verify that the Float Ball is at the very bottom of the Flow Tube.
NOTE: If the Float Ball is not at the bottom of the Flow Tube, the Flowmeter could be leaking. Please contact
Amico Patient Care Corporation.
4. Adjust Flow:
To increase - Turn Knob counterclockwise
To decrease - Turn Knob clockwise
5. Set flow by aligning center of Float Ball with indicator lines on the Flow Tube.
WARNING: ALWAYS confirm prescribed flow before administering to a patient and monitor the flow on a
frequent basis.
6. Adjusting the flow beyond the last calibrated indicator line will result in an undetermined flow.
7. To obtain maximum flush flow, turn knob fully counterclockwise.
NOTE: Any flow beyond the highest calibrated line on the Flow Tube with unrestricted flow is Flood/Flush flow.

Cleaning Instructions
CAUTION:
• DO NOT autoclave
• DO NOT gas sterilize with EtO (Ethylene Oxide)
• DO NOT immerse Flowmeter in any kind of liquid
1. Disconnect all connections before cleaning.
2. Clean exterior surfaces of the Flowmeter with a cloth dampened with a mild detergent and water.
3. Wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Maintenance and Prevention
Before and after each use, inspect the flowmeter for damage.
WARNING: When changing connectors on the Flowmeter for service or replacement, NEVER attach connectors of a different gas. Doing so may result in patient injury or damage to the equipment.
CAUTION: Disconnect Flowmeter from gas supply before servicing.
