INTRODUCTION
Salter Labs O2XPRESS™ Pneumatic Demand Oxygen Conserver is lightweight, easy to use
demand oxygen conserver designed for the ambulatory patient. When used with a portable
oxygen cylinder, the O2XPRESS™ Conserver delivers a discrete burst of oxygen during inhalation and shuts off oxygen delivery during exhalation when you do not need it.
The O2XPRESS™ Conserver incorporates an integral high pressure regulator and connects
directly to a medical oxygen cylinder. The conserver is pneumatically operated, so it does not
require batteries or any other external power source.
The O2XPRESS™ Conserver will typically provide up to 3:1 oxygen saving over a continuous
flow device at equivalent flow rates. This estimate is based on an inspiration: expiration (I:E)
ratio 1:2 at 20 breaths per minute.
To maximize your benefit from the O2XPRESS™ Conserver, it is important for you to read and
understand the information in this instruction manual. By following your doctor’s advice and
these simple instructions, your O2XPRESS™ Conserver will become a valuable part of your
daily routine.
CAUTION
Use only as prescribed by your physician. Read all warnings and instructions
before use. Improper use can result in serious or fatal illness or injury.
CAUTION
Federal law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
DANGER - To reduce the risk of fire, burns, or injury:
´
DO NOT smoke when oxygen is being used. DO NOT allow flames or sparks anywhere
near oxygen equipment or the cannula during use or storage
´
DO NOT cover or carry the device under clothing. The conserver vents a small amount of
oxygen during operation.
´
DO NOT use oil, grease, or other petroleum-based materials on the device. The conserver
does not require lubrication.
´
Rapid pressurization can increase the risk of fire. SLOWLY open the cylinder valve to start
the flow of oxygen with the flow rate selector on the conserver set to the OFF position
´
CLOSE the cylinder valve and turn the conserver off when not in use. ALWAYS close the
cylinder valve first before disconnecting the conserver from the cylinder.
´
If a leak is detected, CLOSE the cylinder valve and reposition the conserver on the cylinder
post.
´
Replace a dirty or worn inlet seal washer with a new Viton rubber/bass washer supplied by
Salter Labs. Do not use any other washer as it could increase the risk of fire. Ensure that
the inlet and surrounding area are clean and free of debris.

WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury:
´
Use this product only for its intended use as described in this manual.
´
Use only oxygen from an approved oxygen source. This equipment delivers supplemental oxygen and is not to be considered life-supporting.
•
Use only cannulas and accessories specified by Salter Labs. Do not use a mask with the
conserver
´
Momentarily open the cylinder valve to clear the cylinder outlet of debris before connecting the conserver.
´
Inspect the inlet connection and washer on the conserver to ensure it is clean. Replace
the washer if necessary. If the oxygen inlet is clogged or contaminated, DO NOT use
the conserver. Contact your Salter Labs dealer or authorized service center
´
DO NOT connect the conserver to an oxygen source that has a pressure greater than
3000 psig.
´
Allow the conserver to return to room temperature before operation if it has been stored
in extremely hot or cold temperatures.
´
DO NOT use the conserver with a humidifier.
´
The conserver should not be used while sleeping unless approved by your physician

or authorized service center if your device needs repair.
´
DO NOT turn or attempt to remove the pressure gauge. The gauge is locked into place
and not threaded.
´
DO NOT tamper with or attempt to repair the device. There are no user serviceable
parts inside the unit. Except for instructed user maintenance, all device servicing must
be performed by a Salter Labs authorized service center.
´
Use care in handling and storing oxygen cylinders. Do not allow cylinders to fall. Do
not store cylinders near any source of heat or flame.
Professional Instructions for Use
The O2XPRESS pneumatic demand oxygen conserver has been tested and demonstrated to
maintain oxygen saturations equivalent to steady flow at all settings. However, the actual
clinical results obtained in individual patients may vary with the settings utilized and their
individual breathing patterns. Fro this reason, it is highly recommended that, as with oxygen
delivery device, patients be individually tested to titrate dosing and to determine the suitability of this device to meet their unique and varying individual needs and dosage requirements.

SETUP AND OPERATION
CONNECTING TO THE CYLINDER
1. Remove the seal from the cylinder if present.
2. Point the outlet of the oxygen cylinder away from you.
Momentarily open and quickly close the cylinder valve to clear the outlet of any debris with
a short blast of oxygen.
3. Check the conserver to ensure the inlet seal washer at the oxygen inlet is in place and in
good condition. Replace a dirty or worn washer with a new Viton rubber/brass washer.
Check that the inlet is clean and free of debris (Figure 1).
4. Loosen the T-handle counterclockwise and slide the conserver over the cylinder post. Align
the two pins on the conserver with the matching holes in the cylinder post.
5. Secure the conserver to the cylinder post by turning the T-handle clockwise until hand tight
(Figure 3).
6. Place the cylinder and conserver in its carrying case or cart.

STARTING OPERATION
WARNING - Use only cannulas specified by Salter Labs. Do not use a mask with the
conserver.
1. Firmly press the two ends of the cannula onto the two barb connectors on the bottom of the
conserver. The orientation of the cannula makes no difference. The cannula lines may be
attached to either barb connector (Figure 2 and Figure 4).
2. Turn the flow rate selector to 0 (OFF).
3. Open the oxygen supply by SLOWLY turning the cylinder valve until you hear oxygen flow
into the conserver. The pressure gauge on the conserver now reads the oxygen pressure
remaining in the cylinder.
4. Listen for leaks around the cylinder connection. If a leak is detected, close the cylinder
valve and reposition the conserver on the cylinder post. Then slowly reopen the cylinder
valve and recheck for leaks.
5. Turn the flow rate selector to the prescribed flow rate for your desired level of activity.
Selector settings represent oxygen delivered in liters per minute (lpm).
6. Unwind the cannula and ensure there are no kinks or twists in the tubing. Place the cannula over your ears and position the prongs in your nose.

7. Breathe in normally through your nose. Notice that the conserver provides a pulse of
oxygen during each inhalation cycle and stops oxygen flow during exhalation. The oxygen
pulse is delivered in two phases: a short pulse is first given at the start of inhalation, followed by a continuous flow for the remainder of inhalation. You may also notice that oxygen is delivered through only one cannula line. To change which side oxygen is delivered,
switch the cannula tubing connections on the conserver.
8. Periodically check the pressure gauge on the conserver. Install a new cylinder when the
gauge reading drops into the red “Refill” zone to continue operation.
ENDING OPERATION
1. Turn the cylinder valve clockwise until it is completely closed to shut off the oxygen supply.
2. Purge the oxygen in the conserver by inhaling from the cannula several times until oxygen
is no longer delivered in response to inhalation.
3. Turn the flow rate selector to 0 (OFF).
4. Remove the cannula from your head. Coil the cannula tubing and store with equipment.
DISCONNECTING FROM THE CYLINDER
1. Ensure that the cylinder valve is closed and the conserver is turned off as instructed in
ENDING OPERATION.
2. Disconnect the cannula from the conserver.
3. Turn the T-handle counterclockwise to disconnect the conserver from the cylinder.
4. Store the equipment as instructed in CARE AND MAINTENANCE.
5. Replace the cylinder if the pressure gauge was reading in the red “Refill” zone. Refill the
empty cylinder.
