When using your concentrator in your home, you can be as mobile as possible, even when rolling your concentrator around your home,
the easy mobility of the machine with a glide-like feeling through hardwood and even carpet, thanks to the caster wheels and the integrated top handle that makes it easy for you to grab and move around. Don't allow yourself to be confined to a small walk area, you can walk around from room to room within range as the concentrator can support up to 50-feet oxygen tubing such as the Oxygen Supply Tubing by Salter Labs, with an optimum level of performance. Connecting a tube further than 50-feet may result in loss of flowrate and can significantly drop by 2-liters. This is, of course, a problem as you are prescribed by your doctor a specific flow-rate based of your medical needs.
When you are breathing in your oxygen, you might notice the air feels a little dry, some people are able to handle the air being provided by the machine, others are used to a more humid atmosphere; depending on your surrounding living environment. When your nasal ways are dry, you may obtain symptoms such as nosebleeds and headaches which are contributing factors to respiratory problems if you do not inform your doctor about your issues before they worsen. Your doctor may recommend a humidifier bottle be attached to your concentrator, the concentrator has a nook on the front left-hand side of the machine to place your humidifier bottle and help combat these symptoms and alleviate your respiratory problems.
When connected, your concentrator is set to always offer a high level of purified oxygen - up to 95.6 percent. If your purity level falls under the manufacturer standard, an alert will inform you of the low level. This can be resolved by removing and cleaning the air filters provided throughout the machine to help get the purity levels back to normal. These filters are accessible by the user and are super easy to clean for the best performance of your concentrator and receive the healthiest oxygen it can provide.
If the alert indicates another issue, the concentrator can be reset in order to troubleshoot the problem. The user has access to this reset button as well, this is a great implemented feature as it will reduce the needs for service calls and technicians for quick and easy repairs. The concentrator is self-diagnosing, if it notates a deeper issue, the concentrator will let you know by the repetition of sound and pulse of LED light that will be flashing - you can review your user manual for identifying the type of error. The 5-year warranty lessens the worry you might face if your machine does happen to go on the fritz, while most warranties end at 3 years, Invacare relies on their concentrator's low maintenance and long life.
In order to attach a humidifier bottle to the platinum 10, you will need a humidifier adapter such as the Concentrator Humidifier Adapter Tubing.
