Caution, Attention or Consult accompanying documents. Alternating Current

Type BF Equipment

No Smoking or Naked Flames

Use No Oil or Grease

1. CAUTIONS

Federal Law restricts this device for sale or use on the order of a physician.

Do not adjust your prescribed level of oxygen flow without consulting your physician.

3

2. WARNINGS

Fire Hazard-Oxygen promotes rapid burning. No Smoking or Open Flames.

Electrical Shock Hazard - do not remove the cabinet or open the cover.

Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet before cleaning or servicing.

Do not place this equipment near hot, sparking or burning objects.

Do not use oil or grease on or near this device.

Do not use the concentrator in the presence of pollutants or dangerous fumes.

An alternate source of oxygen should always be available to avoid any interruption in supply.

This unit is not intended for life sustaining or life supporting applications.

Turn the unit off when it is not in use.

In the event of an alarm, contact your equipment provider.

If you experience any signs of discomfort, contact your physician immediately.

Merits recommends that each concentrator be on and running for a minimum of 60 minutes at a time.

Keep the cord away from HEATED or HOT surfaces.

NEVER drop or insert any object into any opening.

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.

Avoid the operation in wet or damp locations.

4

3. PRECAUTIONS

Always plug in a 15 AMP, grounded circuit. DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD

Place the unit where sides and bottom are unobstructed to ensure proper airflow. (Be sure that the machine is placed away from drapes or other objects that might block the flow of incoming air and/or alarm indicators.)

Only operate the concentrator in a upright position.

Do not use oxygen tubing that exceeds 50 feet in length. The manufacturer recommends crush resistant tubing.

Do not place liquids on the unit or use liquids to clean the unit. Do not use petroleum-based solvents. Clean unit and power cord with mild household cleaner applied with a damp cloth or sponge, then wipe dry.

The Salter Labs 7100 350c.c. Bubble Humidifier and the B&F Medical Bubble Humidifier are suitable for use with the Oxygen Concentrators. Or a humidifier capable of 30 Psi operation and 15 LPM of flow is required. Use of certain humidifiers not specified for use with this oxygen concentrator may impair the performance.

Always choose the FDA or CE approved accessories, such as Masks or cannulas & Humidifiers to ensure the reliability and performance.

Different personnel to prevent cross infection should never use the same mask or cannula.

4. INTENDED USE

The Merit Oxygen Concentrator is intended to be used to supply supplemental oxygen to patients in their home. The devices are not intended for life support nor do they provide any patient monitoring capabilities.

The Merit Oxygen Concentrator operates using standard AC Power from a wall outlet. The concentrator takes in and processes room air through a Molecular Sieve filter system resulting in high purity oxygen at flow up to five liters per minute. Unlike liquid or cylinder oxygen, the concentrator does not require refilling and operates at low pressure. The device only requires minimal cleaning and periodic dealer service checks to ensure optimum performance. The oxygen is delivered via an oxygen cannula or catheter and can be used in conjunction with a humidifier, depending on your physician's orders.

8. OPERATION

8.1 SELECT A LOCATION

Select a location where sides and bottom are unobstructed to ensure proper airflow. Be sure that the machine is placed away from drapes or other objects that might block the flow of incoming air and/or alarm indicators. The area should be free of pollutants or dangerous fumes. The unit should be placed on a stable level surface. The location should have access to a power outlet without use of an extension cord or where the cord is placed across a traffic area. Do not place near a source or heat or open flame or hot, sparking objects.

8.2 PLUG IN POWER CORD

Plug the power cord into a grounded, 15 AMP power outlet.

8.3 CONNECT HUMIDIFIER (if prescribed by your physician)

The Salter Labs 7100 350c.c. Bubble Humidifier and the B&F Medical Bubble Humidifier are suitable for use with the Oxygen Concentrators. Or a humidifier capable of 30 Psi operation and 15 LPM of flow is required. Use of certain humidifiers not specified for use with this oxygen concentrator may impair the performance.

Fill the humidifier with distilled water according to the manufacturer’s instructions(FIG.1). Do not overfill. Replace the cab and securely tighten. Place the humidifier in the humidifier compartment(FIG.2) and attach to the oxygen outlet of the concentrator(FIG.3).

FIGURE 5 ADJUSTING THE FLOWRATE

8.7 OXYGEN PURITY INDICATOR

This feature monitors the purity of oxygen generated by the oxygen concentrator. If purity falls below factory preset standards, indicator lights on the control panel will illuminate.

8.8 START OXYGEN THERAPY

You can use the output of the oxygen concentrator immediately. However, it may take up to 60 minutes to reach maximum oxygen concentration.

12

9. ALARMS

The concentrator is equipped with a visual and an audible indicator.

POWER LOSS:

An audible alarm will sound and the power indicator light will turn off.

PRESSURE ALARM:

Visual and audible alarms will occur when pressure is too low, indicating a possible problem with the concentrator or signaling that oxygen flow is beyond flow. Contact your service dealer when this occurs.

THERMAL PROTECTION ALARM:

Visual and audible alarms will occur when temperature inside the concentrator is too high, indicating a possible problem with the concentrator or signaling that cabinet filters need to be clean. Contact your service dealer when this occurs.

Concentrator With Optional Oxygen Concentration Sensor

This sensor provides the indication of oxygen purity as follows:

RED LIGHT Oxygen concentration level falls below 70%(±3 ). Discontinue use and call for service - obtain alternative source of oxygen.

YELLOW LIGHT Oxygen concentration level is between 70%(±3 ) ~ 85%(±3 ). You may continue to use the concentrator unless instructed otherwise by your supplier. Call for service immediately. Be certain that BACKUP OXYGEN is reachable.

GREEN LIGHT Unit is operating - Oxygen at a concentration above 85%(±3 ).

10. MAINTENANCE

10.1 GENERAL CARING

1.Daily inspection of the cabinet filter should occur. Lightly vacuum or sweep off. Do not use any sharp or corrosive materials.

2.Always use, clean and/or replace the humidifier in accordance with manufacturer's or dealer's instructions.

3.The patient should never service or open this machine. It is to be serviced by qualified personnel only.

13

4.The oxygen concentration should be checked every 90 days for units without optional oxygen sensors. The oxygen concentration should be checked every 6 months for units with optional oxygen sensors.

10.2 CLEANING THE CABINET FILTERS

NOTE: All concentrator models have one cabinet filter located at rear side of the cabinet. (FIG. 6)

FIGURE 6 CABINET FILTER LOCATION

1.Remove the cabinet filter and CLEAN AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK depending on environmental conditions. (FIG.7)

2.Clean the cabinet filter with a vacuum cleaner or wash in warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly.

(FIG. 7)

3.Dry the filters thoroughly before reinstallation.

FIGURE 7 REMOVE THE CABINET FILTERS

10.3 CABINET

Clean the cabinet with a mild household cleaner and non-abrasive cloth or sponge.

14

10.4 HUMIDIFIER

NOTE: To clean the oxygen humidifier, follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer. If none are provided, follow these steps

1.Clean the humidifier every day.

2.Wash it in soapy water and rinse it with a solution of 10 parts water and 1 part vinegar.

3.Rinse again with hot water and refill with distilled water to the level shown on the humidifier.
