If you have used a concentrator before one of the few things you will quickly notice is the air being produced can cause your nasal passageway to dry out, giving you nosebleeds, headaches or respiratory problems. Like many concentrators, Drive Medical has also offered the ability to attach a humidifier bottle, such as the Salter Labs Bubble Humidifier that is compatible and can be palced on the nook area located on the front middle section of the machine, this infuses the air passing through the bottle with water you will breathe in through your oxygen tube; eliminating the cause of dry nostrils and other symptoms caused by breathing in depleted air.
The devilbiss 10l concentrator creates comfort and security with the people who depend on it. The concentrator is designed to minimize service calls or overnight repairs. When a repair is needed, it means you will have to accommodate for a rental concentrator to be provided, this can be difficult when no shops around you have rentals available; leaving you in desperate need. Thanks to an included circuit-breaker located on the front exterior of the machine it helps detect small issues and errors and corrects them without having to schedule a service call. Proper functionality will proceed day by day without fail, the concentrator is built to last you many years with minimal requirements for maintenance. If there is such a need at one point where it is not operating at its 100 percent ability - the audible alert will inform you of the issue. The LED alarm will designate errors or mechanical problems by the way it flashes. Most issues can be corrected by troubleshooting the machine, being repaired right at home.
Included with your concentrator is a detection feature that alerts you if the purity of the oxygen being produced starts to fall under the factory set standard. The OSD (Oxygen Sensing Device) monitors the flow of oxygen produced. If the purity falls under an acceptable level, switch over to your oxygen reserve and review the manual for troubleshooting the issue. A second-tier alert will cause an intermittent beep, this will require attention from a certified technician.
Regardless of your choice of concentrator, you deserve to enjoy mobility around your home, either by trolling the concentrator around by the integrated handle which makes moving the machine easy to glide with heavy duty wheels. A stationary concentrator does not have to limit your mobility.
Don't forget your cannula, this is the tube that will connect to the bottle of the concentrator that you will breathe in through' such an option is the MedLine Soft-Touch Oxygen Cannulas. If you are attaching your cannula directly to the machine instead of a humidifier bottle, make sure you have a Christmas tree adapter to make the connection.
