Oxygen concentrators are available in different sizes and models. However, all models have the same basic parts a power switch to turn the unit on and off, a flow selector that regulates the amount of oxygen you receive, an alarm system that alerts you if the power is interrupted, and if prescribed, a humidifier unit that allows the oxygen to be moisturized so it will not dry out your nose, mouth, and throat.
If your are using humidification with your oxygen concentrator, you will need to check the water level in the bottle frequently. When distilled/sterile water runs out or the bubbling stops, you will need to refill the bottle.
Step 1: Wash your hands.
Step 2: Turn the oxygen concentrator off and remove the humidification bottle from the oxygen concentrator.
Step 3: Unscrew the lid from the humidification bottle.
Step 4: Discard any water remaining in the humidification bottle.
Step 5: Refill the humidification bottle until minimum and maximum level with distilled/sterile water to the fill line marked on the bottle. Do not overfill the bottle. Too much water in the bottle will cause the water to collect in the oxygen tubing.
Step 6: Screw the lid back on the humidification bottle until it is tight. Reattach the humidification bottle to your oxygen concentrator.
