Part No 1143482
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
DANGER
The use of oxygen therapy requires that special care be taken
to reduce the risk of fire. Any materials that will burn in air,
and some that will not, are easily ignited and burn rapidly in
high concentrations of oxygen. For safety concerns, it is
necessary that all sources of ignition be kept away from the
product and out of the room in which it is being used. NO
SMOKING signs should be prominently displayed.
WARNING
A spontaneous and violent ignition may occur if oil, grease or
greasy substances come in contact with oxygen under
pressure. These substances MUST be kept away from the
oxygen concentrator, tubing and connections, and all other
oxygen equipment. DO NOT use any lubricants unless
recommended by Invacare.
For optimum performance, Invacare recommends that each
concentrator be on and running for a minimum of 30 minutes
at a time. Shorter periods of operation may reduce maximum
product life.
If the concentrator has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not
working properly, if it has been dropped or damaged, or
dropped into water, call qualified technician for examination
and repair.
Keep the oxygen tubing, cord, and unit away from heated or
hot surfaces, including space heaters, blankets, stoves and
similar electrical appliances.
DO NOT move or relocate concentrator by pulling on the
cord.
NEVER drop or insert any object into any opening.
Part No 1143482

Perfecto2™Series
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
WARNING
NEVER block the air openings of the product or place it on a
soft surface, such as a bed or couch, where the air opening
may be blocked. Keep the openings free from lint, hair and the
like. Fill humidifier with water to the level shown by the
manufacturer. DO NOT overfill.
Keep unit at least three inches away from walls, draperies,
furniture, and the like.
Invacare recommends that Crush-Proof oxygen tubing be
used with this product and not exceed 50 ft. (15.2m) in length.
Maintenance
The Invacare Oxygen Concentrator was specifically designed
to minimize routine preventive maintenance. Only
professionals of the healthcare field or persons fully
conversant with this process such as factory trained personnel
should perform preventive maintenance or performance
adjustments on the oxygen concentrator.
Radio Frequency Interference
Most electronic equipment is influenced by Radio Frequency
Interference (RFI). Caution should be exercised with regard to
the use of portable communications equipment in the area
around such equipment.

prescription of a physician and this Owner’s Manual. If at any
time the patient or attendant conclude that the patient is
receiving an insufficient amount of oxygen, the supplier
and/or physician should be contacted IMMEDIATELY.
DO NOT change the L/min setting on the flowmeter unless a
change has been prescribed by your physician or therapist.
Close supervision is necessary when this product is used near
children or physically-challenged individuals.
Use this product for only intended use as described in this
manual.
DO NOT connect the concentrator in parallel or series with
other oxygen concentrators or oxygen therapy devices.

SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
WARNING
Use of some administration accessories or certain humidifiers
not specified for use with oxygen concentrator may impair the
performance.
In certain circumstances oxygen therapy can be hazardous.
Invacare recommends that you seek medical advice before
using this machine.
This equipment is to be used as an oxygen supplement and is
not considered life supporting or life sustaining.
Avoid creation of any spark near medical oxygen equipment.
This includes sparks from static electricity created by any type
of friction.
Polarized Plug Instruction
As a safety feature, this appliance has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized
outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician. DO NOT attempt to defeat this safety feature.

SECTION 5—OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
SECTION 5—OPERATING
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. Refer to Recommended
Guidelines for Optimum Performance on page 17. 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 and/or fumes.
