equipment without first completely reading and
understanding these instructions and any additional
instructional material such as owner’s manuals, service
manuals or instruction sheets supplied with this product or
optional equipment. If you are unable to understand the
warnings, cautions or instructions, contact a healthcare
professional, dealer or technical personnel before attempting
to use this equipment - otherwise, injury or damage may
occur.
ACCESSORIES WARNING
Invacare products are specifically designed and
manufactured for use in conjunction with Invacare
accessories. Accessories designed by other manufacturers
have not been tested by Invacare and are not recommended
for use with Invacare products.
ACCESSORIES
There are many different types of humidifiers, oxygen tubing,
cannulas and masks that can be used with this device. You
should contact your local home care provider for
recommendations on which of these devices will be best for
you. They should also give you advice on the proper usage,
maintenance, and cleaning.
The supply accessories (nasal cannula, mask, tubing,
humidifier, etc.) used to deliver oxygen to the patient may
include a means to reduce the propagation of fire in the
accessories for the safety of the patient and others. If a
commercially available, fire-activated flow stop device is used
in the accessories setup, it should be placed as close to the
patient as practicable.

SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
In order to ensure the safe installation, assembly and
operation of the Platinum concentrator these instructions
MUST be followed.
WARNING
This section contains important information for the safe
operation and use of this product.
To Reduce the Risk of Burns,
Electrocution, Fire or Injury to Persons
DANGER
Risk of electric shock. DO NOT disassemble. Refer servicing
to qualified service personnel. No user serviceable parts.
Avoid using while bathing. If continuous usage is required
by the physician’s prescription, the concentrator MUST be
located in another room at least 7 ft from the bath.
DO NOT come in contact with the concentrator while wet.
DO NOT place or store product where it can drop into
water or other liquid.
DO NOT reach for product that has fallen into water.
Unplug IMMEDIATELY.
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.
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.
Avoid creation of any spark near medical oxygen
equipment. This includes sparks from static electricity
created by any type of friction.

Part No 1118353
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
Operating Information
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.
Keep the oxygen tubing, cord, and unit out from under such
items as blankets, bed coverings, chair cushions, clothing and
away from heated or hot surfaces, including space heaters,
stoves and similar electrical appliances.
DO NOT move or relocate concentrator by pulling on the
power cord.
NEVER drop or insert any object or liquid into any opening.
Invacare recommends that Crush-Proof oxygen tubing be
used with this product and not exceed 15.2 m (50 ft) in length.
There are no user serviceable parts. This does not include
normal maintenance items. See maintenance section for user
maintenance items.
A product should NEVER be left unattended when plugged
in. Make sure the Platinum is Off when not in use.
Close supervision is necessary when this product is used near
children or physically-challenged individuals.
Additional monitoring or attention may be required for
patients using this device who are unable to hear or see
alarms or communicate discomfort.
DO NOT connect the concentrator in parallel or series with
other oxygen concentrators or oxygen therapy devices.
Radio Frequency Interference
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
EMC limits specified by IEC/EN 60601-1-2. These limits are
designed to provide a reasonable protection against
electromagnetic interference in a typical medical installation.
Part No 1118353
9
Platinum™ Series
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
Other devices may experience interference from even the low
levels of electromagnetic emissions permitted by the above
standards. To determine if the emissions from the Platinum is
causing the interference, turn the Platinum Off. If the
interference with the other device(s) stops, then the Platinum
is causing the interference. In such rare cases, interference
may be reduced or corrected by one of the following
measures:
• Reposition, relocate, or increase the separation
between the equipment.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the other device(s) is connected.

SECTION 5—OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
SECTION 5—OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
Introduction
Your oxygen concentrator is intended for individual use indoors.
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
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.
Move oxygen concentrator at least 3 inches away from walls,
draperies or furniture.
You may select a room where using your oxygen concentrator
would be most convenient. Your concentrator can be easily rolled
from room to room on its casters.
The air intake of the unit should be located in a well ventilated area
to avoid airborne pollutants and/or fumes. DO NOT place in a
closet.

SECTION 5—OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
POLARIZED PLUG WARNING
As a safety feature, this appliance may have 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.
Connect Humidifier (If So Prescribed)
WARNING
DO NOT overfill humidifier.
DO NOT reverse the oxygen input and output connections. Water
from the humidifier bottle will travel through the cannula back to
the patient.
NOTE: For this procedure, refer to FIGURE 5.1, FIGURE 5.2 and
FIGURE 5.3 on page 17 and FIGURE 5.4 on page 18.
NOTE: Recommended humidifier is high flow: MS0481.
1. Remove cap and fill humidifier bottle with distilled water
to the level indicated by the manufacturer.
2. Replace the humidifier cap and securely tighten.

Flowrate
NOTE: For this procedure, refer to FIGURE 5.6 on page 19.
1. Turn the flowrate knob to the setting prescribed by your
physician or therapist.
CAUTION
Never set the flow greater than 10L/min.
WARNING
DO NOT change the L/min setting on the flowmeter unless a
change has been prescribed by your physician or therapist.
NOTE: To properly read the flowmeter, locate the prescribed flowrate
line on the flowmeter. Next, turn the flow knob until the ball rises to
the line. Now, center the ball on the L/min. line prescribed.
NOTE: A Potential Obstruction Alert indicates a condition that
may be associated with a partial or complete obstruction of oxygen
output.
2. If the flowrate on the flowmeter ever falls below 1 L/min for
more than about one minute, the Potential Obstruction Alert
will be triggered. This is a rapid beeping of the audible alarm.
Check your tubing or accessories for blocked or kinked tubing
or a defective humidifier bottle. After rated flow is restored to
1 L/min, the Potential Obstruction Alert will go off.
NOTE: The use of some accessories such as the HomeFill compressor
will deactivate the Potential Obstruction Alert.
