RECEIVING / INSPECTION

Remove the Precision Medical, Inc. EasyPulse5 Oxygen Conserving

Regulator (Conserver) from the packaging and inspect for damage. If there is any damage, DO NOT USE and contact your Provider.

INTENDED USE

To regulate high pressure cylinders that provide supplemental oxygen to patients who may have difficulty extracting oxygen from the air they breathe. It is for patients who would normally receive the oxygen via a nasal cannula. The device delivers 100% oxygen at flow settings. It is intended to be used as an oxygen saving device that reduces the drying of the airways.

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING

This manual instructs a user to install and operate the Oxygen Conserving

Regulator (Conserver). This is provided for your safety and to prevent damage to the Conserver. If you do not understand this manual, DO

NOT USE the Conserver and contact your Provider.

DANGER

This product is not intended as a life-sustaining or life-supporting device.

Products and Oxygen Handling (G-4).

• Keep cylinder valve closed at all times when cylinder is not in use.

• NO OXYGEN is delivered when the pointer is aligned with

“OFF”, or between settings.

• This Conserver is not to be used by patients who breathe through their mouths.

• DO NOT use if dirt or contaminants are present on or around cylinder, valve, product or connecting devices.

• DO NOT use oils, greases, organic lubricants or any combustible materials on or near this product. Wash and dry hands properly prior to usage.

• DO NOT use a humidifier with the Conserver.

• DO NOT allow cylinders to tip or fall. Secure gas cylinders so they cannot fall. For optimum safety keep cylinder upright whenever possible.

• DO NOT store cylinders near sources of heat or flame.

• DO NOT use while sleeping without consulting your Provider.

• DO NOT smoke in an area where oxygen is being administered.

• DO NOT use near any type of flame or flammable/explosive substances.

• Use only USP grade medical oxygen.

• The Conserver is equipped with a relief valve. If you hear a loud hissing or popping sound coming from the product, discontinue use of product, close cylinder valve, and contact your Provider.

• The Conserver is designed to operate with a single lumen, adult cannula with a maximum length of 7 feet (2.1 m).

• The cannula is for single patient use only.

CAUTION

• Only personnel instructed and trained in its use should operate the

Conserver.

• The Conserver contains magnetic, ferrous material that may affect the results of an MRI.

• DO NOT autoclave.

• DO NOT gas sterilize with Ethylene Oxide.

• DO NOT clean with aromatic hydrocarbons.

• Store the Conserver in a clean area when not in use.

• Avoid dropping the Conserver or placing it in a position where it could fall and become damaged.

• Consistent with the recommendations of the medical community on the use of conserving devices, it is recommended that the Oxygen

Conserving Regulator be qualified on patients in the situations it will be used.

• The Conserver may not be able to detect all respiratory efforts of the patient. (Shallow breathers may not be able to trigger the Conserver.)

• Operating the Conserver outside its range of operating conditions may affect its accuracy and performance.

PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION

The Oxygen Conserver is designed to be used with high-pressure oxygen systems. It consists of a cylinder connection, cylinder contents gauge (if equipped), high-to-low pressure regulator, orifice plate and a conserving demand module. The regulator reduces the high pressure of the cylinder to the working pressure of the orifice plate. The orifice plate uses calibrated orifices to deliver a selected flow to the conserving demand module. The conserving demand module controls the pulse size and timing to the patient. It supplies a pulse of oxygen at the beginning of each breath.

This reduces the oxygen demand on the system and limits the drying of the airways. The flow is determined by setting the flow control knob to the prescribed flow. The oxygen is supplied to the patient through the cannula.

INSTALLATION

WARNING

• Read this User Manual before installing or operating the

Oxygen Conserving Regulator.

• Inspect the Conserver and cylinder valve to ensure they are free of oils, greases or other contaminants.

• DO NOT direct flow of oxygen at any person, or flammable material when cracking open the cylinder.

• DO NOT use without yoke seal.

• DO NOT use plastic yoke seals.

• Use Precision Medical, Inc. yoke seal made of viton and brass.

• The yoke seal supplied with the Conserver is reusable.

CAUTION

• Inspect the Oxygen Conserving Regulator for visual damage before use, DO NOT USE if damaged.

• DO NOT use tools to tighten T-handle, this can lead to over tightening and will cause damage to the Conserver.

• Be sure all connections are tight and leak free.

• DO NOT use liquid leak detector to test for leaks.

NOTE: For operational instructions on how to operate the cylinder consult your Provider.

1. Position the cylinder so the oxygen cylinder valve outlet is pointing away from the user and any other person(s).

2. Before installing the Conserver, “crack” cylinder valve by opening the valve slightly to remove any foreign particles and then close valve.

3. Be sure the Conserver is in the “OFF” position. Align “OFF” with the indicating pointer .

4. Be sure the CGA 870 connection high pressure inlet has a yoke seal.

5. Align Index Pins with Index Pin Alignment Holes in Post Valve.

6. Hand tighten T-handle until snug.

8

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

1. Attach a standard adult single lumen oxygen nasal cannula, no longer than 7 feet (2.1 m) to the Conserver’s outlet according to the cannula manufacturer’s instructions.

CAUTION

• DO NOT use pediatric, low flow nasal cannulas or oxygen masks with the Conserver.

• DO NOT block the cannula connection or kink cannula tubing when the Conserver is in use, this may damage the Conserver.

2. Place the cannula over your ears and position the prongs in your nose as instructed by your Provider or cannula manufacturer.

OR

3. Slowly open cylinder valve counterclockwise, until completely open.

4. Turn dial on the Conserver until indicating pointer is aligned with the prescribed setting.

5. Breathe through your nose.

NOTE:When on a pulse setting, there is flow or a pulse only at the beginning of each breath. If you do not feel the pulse at the beginning of each breath, check the setting. If there is still no pulse, turn dial to an equivalent “Continuous” setting.

Because each patient’s breathing pattern is different and the environment varies, it may be difficult to feel some low setting pulses.

9

6. To remove the Conserver from cylinder:

Completely close oxygen cylinder valve.

• Turn the Conserver dial to any “Continuous” position.

• Wait for oxygen to stop flowing from Conserver.

• Remove the Conserver from cylinder valve.

DO NOT try to loosen T-handle beyond stop. Damage to the

Conserver will occur.

DANGER

NEVER attempt to remove the Conserver from a cylinder unless the cylinder valve is closed.

WARNING

• When pointer on contents gauge enters red zone, (500 psi (3447 kPa) and below), it is recommended to change to a full oxygen cylinder.

• NO OXYGEN is delivered in between settings.

To avoid injury to patient:

• ALWAYS confirm prescribed setting before administering to patient and monitor flow on a frequent basis.

WARNING

• Use only Precision Medical, Inc. carry bag designed for the

EasyPulse5 to prevent an oxygen enriched environment.

• DO NOT place the unit under clothing while in use. When the Conserver is in use, a small amount of oxygen is vented.

Wearing the unit under clothing may saturate fabrics with oxygen and cause them to burn rapidly, if exposed to sparks or flame. It may take several hours for oxygen levels in fabrics to return to normal.

• ALWAYS insert cylinder and Conserver into bag, cylinder first with gauge facing mesh. Reference accessory photo, (pg. 13).

10

MAINTENANCE / CLEANING

1. Disconnect all connections before cleaning.

2. Clean exterior surfaces of the Conserver with a cloth dampened with mild detergent and water.

3. Wipe dry with a clean cloth.

4. Store the Conserver in a clean area free of grease, oil, and other sources of contamination.

CAUTION

• DO NOT use cleaning solutions.

• DO NOT immerse the Conserver in any kind of liquid.

• DO NOT attempt to repair the EasyPulse5 Oxygen Conserving

Regulator.

• All repairs must be performed by Precision Medical, Inc. or

Authorized Representative.
