1. INTRODUCTION

1.3
Equinox® II ADMINISTRATION SYSTEM
®
The Equinox
II Administration System is intended for
administration of 50%/50% N2O/O2 analgesic gas mixture and is
specifically designed for use in emergency and obstetric analgesia.
The Equinox® II Administration System consists of a demand
valve, a single stage pressure regulator, a supply hose and a
universal patient face mask. It can be operated anywhere 50%
Nitrous Oxide/50% Oxygen mixture cylinders are available.
The Equinox® II Demand Valve is lightweight, portable, and
extremely durable and is intended to administer 50%/50% N2O/O2
analgesic gas on patient’s demand.
The pressure regulator is intended to lower the high, variable
cylinder pressure to a lower constant working pressure for the
Demand Valve.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
The Equinox® II Administration System is intended for use by
suitably trained and qualified personnel.
The following precautions should always be observed:
1. CAUTION: FEDERAL LAW IN THE U.S.A. RESTRICTS THIS
DEVICE TO SALE BY OR ON THE ORDER OF A LICENSED
PRACTITIONER.
2. WHEN THE UNIT IS IN USE, DO NOT SMOKE OR USE NEAR
OPEN FLAME EITHER DURING USE OR WHEN CHANGING THE
CYLINDER.
3. WHEN NOT IN USE, ALWAYS TURN OFF THE CYLINDER.
4. NEVER ALLOW OIL OR GREASE TO COME INTO CONTACT WITH
ANY PART OF THE CYLINDER, REGULATOR OR DEMAND VALVE.
Note: Only those individuals trained in the administration of Nitrous
Oxide/Oxygen mixtures should use this equipment. Thoroughly
review the instruction manual before use.
5. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE ANY PART OF THE DEMAND VALVE
EXCEPT WHERE DESCRIBED IN THIS MANUAL AS ANY
UNAUTHORIZED DISASSEMBLY WILL INVALIDATE THE
WARRANTY.
1.2
6. AFTER USE, ALWAYS ENSURE THAT ALL COMPONENTS ARE
CLEANED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS
PROVIDED IN THIS MANUAL.

PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION
2.1
Demand Valve
(Minimum) Peak Flow rate………..…..…………….….
140 LPM
Exhalation Resistance ………..….…. 0 to 6 cmH2O @ 60 LPM
Inhalation Resistance ………..….…. 0 to -6 cmH2O @ 60 LPM
Input Pressure…………………………..……..….…………
50 PSI
Initiation Pressure………...…………..…………-2 to -2.5 cmH2O
DEMAND BREATHING
The O-Two Medical Equinox® II Demand Valve is designed to
operate on compressed Nitrous Oxide/ Oxygen gas. It is intended
to provide 50/50% Nitrous Oxide/ Oxygen mixture to the patient
at a safe delivery pressure and adequate flow rate upon demand.
An inspiratory effort by the patient will activate the demand valve
and Nitrous Oxide/ Oxygen will flow to the patient at a rate and
volume in line with their inspiratory effort.
Operating Temp…………...…….….-180C to 500C (00F to 1220F)
2.2
Storage Temp……………………..-400C to 600C (-400F to 1400F)
1. Ensure that the Equinox® II Demand
connection is secured and no leaks present.
Input Connection…………………....…….…..…...… 5/8”-18 TPI
2. Turn the cylinder hand wheel counter clockwise to the ON
position (at least one full turn).
Patient Connector………………..………….……......… 15/22 mm
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Valve/Regulator
Weight…………………………..………………….210 grams (7.4 oz)
3. Ensure that the regulator contents gauge reads at least 500
psi. If not, replace with a full cylinder.
Dimensions (inches)………..... Dia. 51mm x 81mm (2.0” x 3.2”)
4. Attach the Universal Facemask to the Equinox® II Demand
Valve outlet.
Pressure Regulator
5. Instruct the patient in its operation. Most protocols require the
gas mixture be self-administered by the patient to prevent
inadvertent excessive administration by an attendant.
Inlet Connection………....CGA 965 N2O/O2 Pin Indexed Yoke
Outlet Connector………………..………….……......…5/8” Thread
Operating Pressure………………………………..….500 -3000 PSI
Output Pressure…………………………………………..…50 -60 PSI
Weight…………………………..………………….450 grams (1.0 lb)

6. To trigger the demand valve and obtain an adequate flow of
gas, it is necessary to make a good mask to face seal. Simply
place the mask on the patient’s face, covering both the nose
and mouth. Instruct the patient to hold the mask on his/her
face with a light pressure and breath normally. The sound of
gas flowing should be heard with each inspiration. If not,
adjust the patient’s hold on the mask for a better seal and ask
the patient to breath more deeply.
5
7. Continue administration as per local management protocol.
8. Ensure that the cylinder is turned OFF after each use and
remaining gas released from the system by placing the bleed
pin attached to the regulator into the center hole on top of the
Equinox® II Demand Valve and depress until gas flow ceases.
2.3
SCAVENGING OF WASTE NITROUS OXIDE/
OXYGEN USING THE SCAVENGER ADAPTER
The optional Scavenger Adapter is designed to replace the Nonrebreathing Patient Valve assembly to scavenge exhaled air from
the patient during inhalation analgesia.
The 19 mm exhalation port meets the requirements of the
International Standards for Conical Connectors for Low Pressure
Medical Gas Systems and will allow the attachment of corrugated
tubing so that the patient’s exhaled breath can be scavenged from
the exhalation valve to the exhaust method chosen by the facility
using the device.

3.1 ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
WARNING:
The Equinox® II Administration System is designed to provide
years of reliable service in all emergency situations. Failure to
follow the maintenance and inspection routines properly could
result in incorrect operation of the demand valve.
To ensure proper operation of the Equinox® II Administration
System, regular inspection and checking of the demand valve and
accessories for correct function should be undertaken by a
responsible member of staff on a regular basis.
This check is to ensure that all of the accessories and demand
valve components are present, the gas mixture cylinder is full and
that the demand valve is in working order.
MAINTENANCE
Function parameters should be checked at least every six months,
and more frequently in high use applications. Units with test
pressures outside of the ranges listed in the product specifications
should not be used. O-Two Medical products are not designed for
field disassembly or service outside that indicated in this manual.
Any malfunctioning units should be returned to the manufacturer
or an Authorized O-Two Medical Technologies Dealer.
Unauthorized repairs will nullify the product warranty.

Remove the facemask from the Equinox® II Demand Valve,
and then disconnect the demand valve from the regulator.
The regulator can be cleaned with a clean soft cloth.
3.
Unscrew patient valve (A) from the unit body being careful to
ensure that the diaphragm (B) is retained (Fig1).
4.
Remove the diaphragm and anti-entrainment ring (C) from
the patient valve swivel housing and wash these components
thoroughly in a mild soap solution;
5.
Disinfect the face mask, patient valve and diaphragm using
commonly available cold chemical disinfecting solutions. Rinse
thoroughly with water after disinfection.
6.
Sterilization, if required, may be achieved by other methods
compatible with the materials of manufacture of these
components including Ethylene Oxide Gas and Cidex.
7.
The demand valve body (D) and gas supply hose can be
wiped over with a soft cloth and mild soap solution and may
be disinfected using a hard surface disinfectant that is
compatible with aluminium.
8.
Dry all components thoroughly.
9.
Re-assemble and check performance.
