1. INTRODUCTION
1.1
1.3
Equinox® II DEMAND VALVE
®
O-Two Medical Technologies Equinox II Demand Valve provides
trained individuals with a safe and effective means of providing
analgesia (pain relief) by inhalation.
O-Two Medical Equinox® II Demand Valves are lightweight,
portable, and extremely durable. Designed for the demands of the
pre-hospital and in-hospital environment, they can be operated
anywhere 50% Nitrous Oxide/50% Oxygen mixture cylinders are
available.
Note: Only those individuals trained in the administration of
Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen mixtures should use this equipment.
Thoroughly review the instruction manual before use.

WARRANTY
WARRANTY
O-Two equipment is manufactured from the finest quality materials. Each
individual part is subject to strict quality control tests to ensure exceptionally
high standards. The manufacturer warrants to the purchaser of DEMAND
VALVE (RESUSCITATOR) that its component parts are free from defects in
material and workmanship for a period of two years from the date of
purchase. The manufacturer will replace and /or repair all parts of the
resuscitator at its option for two years from the date of purchase at no cost to
the purchaser, upon the notification of the defects, in writing by the
purchaser. All shipping costs shall be borne by the purchaser. The
manufacturer shall be liable under this warranty only if the resuscitator and its

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.
5. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE ANY PART OF THE DEMAND VALVE
EXCEPT WHERE DESCRIBED IN THIS MANUAL AS ANY
UNAUTHORIZED DISASSEMBLY WILL INVALIDATE THE
WARRANTY.
6. AFTER USE, ALWAYS ENSURE THAT ALL COMPONENTS ARE
CLEANED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS
PROVIDED IN THIS MANUAL.

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 open the demand valve
and Oxygen/Nitrous Oxide will flow to the patient at a rate and
volume in line with their inspiratory effort.
2.2
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

connection is secured and no leaks present.

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.
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.

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. SERVICING
3.1 ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
WARNING:
The Equinox® II Demand Valve 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 demand valve,
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
Resuscitation 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.

CLEANING/ DISINFECTION PROCEDURE
1. Ensure that the cylinder is turned off (completely clockwise)
and bleed any remaining gas out of the gas supply hose.
2.
Remove the facemask from the Equinox® II Demand Valve,
and then disconnect the demand valve from the regulator.
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.
WARNING:
Fig.1
Do not immerse the demand valve unit into cleaning solution or
disinfectant.
Discontinue to use and discard the face mask, the patient valve
and the diaphragm should discoloration or deterioration be
observed.
