XPO2 Portable Oxygen Concentrator. Equipment Guide.


The air that we breathe is made up of 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen and 1% other gases. Your XPO2 oxygen concentrator works by drawing in the air and separating out the oxygen from the other gases using a filter system. This filter traps some gases and allows the oxygen to pass through. The oxygen is then delivered to you by tubing which connects to the cannula or mask for you to breathe. Other people in the room will still be breathing normal amounts of oxygen. The XP02 is a portable concentrator which has been created with reliable components and developed with years of experience from stationary concentrators. It is light weight, compact, reliable and highly efficient. The XP02 gives you increased mobility whilst using oxygen, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest.

How to use the XPO2. IMPORTANT: Read the important safeguards overleaf and observe all warnings and cautions in this guide. Follow all operating instructions. If you have any questions or concerns please call BOC immediately on 0800 136 603. 1. Place your XPO2 in a suitable well ventilated location maintaining at least a 3 inch (7.6 cm) gap at the front of the XPO2. 2. Ensure that the filter is clean and correctly installed in the front cavity. Please contact BOC on 0800 136 603 if you have any difficulties.

in less effective oxygen therapy. The XPO2 will release a measured pulse of oxygen each time it detects inhalation. The blue flow setting indicator will flash each time an inhalation is detected and the XPO2 puts out a pulse of oxygen. 8. When you have finished using the XPO2, press and hold the power On/Off button for approximately two seconds. Store the XPO2 in a cool, dry location when not in use.

3. Select power source: You can use the internal battery, the additional battery or mains power. The internal battery will be used unless the XPO2 is connected to an alternative power 9.

10. Charging the additional battery – Connect the AC power adaptor to the additional battery pack. Battery gauge indicator lights do not illuminate when charging the additional battery. 5. Turn the XPO2 on by pressing the On/Off button. All lights will turn on briefly and a brief audible beep indicates the unit is operational. NOTE: Both the internal battery and the additional battery must be charged to a sufficient level before use. To check the level of internal battery, press 6. The XPO2 has five pulse flow settings.

Do’s and Don’ts. IMPORTANT: Please ensure you read all accompanying literature supplied prior to using your home oxygen equipment. In particular, pay attention to the section on not smoking or allowing others to smoke near your equipment. →→ Never block the air intake and air exhausts on the front curved area of the XPO2. →→ Never lie the unit curved side down. Do not cover with clothing or any other materials. →→ Always ensure that you organise access to a power source to recharge your XPO2 when required. →→ Use only the supplied XPO2 power sources with the XPO2. →→ The operating temperature is 5°C – 35°C. The XPO2 should not be stored in a car overnight at any time of year. →→ Keep the XPO2 at least 5 feet (1.6 m) from hot, sparking objects or naked sources of flame. The XPO2 should be located so as to avoid pollutants or fumes. →→ Do not use oil or grease: A spontaneous and violent ignition may occur if oil, grease, or other petroleum substances come into contact with oxygen under pressure. Keep these substances away from the oxygen system, tubing and connections, and any other oxygen source. →→ Do not use any petroleum based or other lubricants. →→ Do not allow unauthorised or untrained individuals to service the equipment or open the device. →→ Do not operate the XPO2 or accessories in standing water and do not submerse or expose to water. Electric shock or damage to the unit may result if this occurs.

→→ Protect the battery and Power Adapters from fluid spills or drips to avoid possible shock hazards. →→ Do not expose the Rechargeable Battery to fire or dispose of in a fire. It may explode and cause potential injury. →→ Do not short circuit the battery’s metal contacts with metallic objects such as keys or coins. It may cause sparks or excessive heat. →→ Do not disassemble, puncture, or crush the battery. Rechargeable Battery electrolytes may be toxic if swallowed and can be harmful to skin and eyes. Use of a damaged battery may cause personal injury. Keep the battery away from children. →→ This device contains electrical and/or electronic equipment. Please do not dispose of any of these components. →→ Electric shock hazard – do not attempt to repair or service this item. →→ Do not operate the XPO2 in an area where the air may be contaminated with carbon monoxide or hydrocarbons as this may shorten the life of the unit (i.e. near car exhausts, furnaces, or gas heaters). →→ Do not place this device near other equipment or devices that create or attract electromagnetic fields. Placing the unit in electromagnetic fields greater than 10 V/m can affect its operation. Examples of such equipment are defibrillators, diathermy equipment, cellular telephones, CB radios, radio-controlled toys, microwave ovens, etc.

NOTE: Be sure to check the battery charge level before travel; battery will discharge over time. Both the internal and additional battery will fully charge in approximately 3–4 hours. You may operate your XPO2 whilst charging although this will increase the time to fully charge the batteries. We recommended that you recharge the internal battery, even if only partially depleted, as often as possible.

The XPO2 may be used in the car however please ensure that you have checked that the XPO2 can run from the car power supply prior to relying on your car as a power source. If you change your car or plan to use your XPO2 in a different car, please check and test even if the car is the same make and model. If you wish to take the XPO2 on holiday, please discuss with BOC Healthcare and your clinician before doing so. Please make every effort to take good care of the XPO2 and maintain as instructed by your PSR (Patient Service Representative).

Power failure/Concentrator breakdown. What to do if your oxygen concentrator breaks down or you have a power failure. Switch to your back-up cylinder and call the Patient Service Centre on 0800 136 603 and explain what the problem is. They will ask you a series of questions to determine what the problem might be. It is crucial that you give them as much help as you can. They will then give you advice on how to fix the problem or if this is not possible, they will arrange for one of our PSRs to visit you. Our free phone line 0800 136 603 is open 24 hours a day every day of the year to respond to emergencies. If you feel unwell then it is important that you contact your doctor so that he/she can provide guidance.

Back-up cylinders These cylinders are normally provided for use in case of power failure or breakdown of the concentrator.

Electricity refunds. What is an electricity refund? As part of our service we will refund the cost of electricity used by the oxygen concentrator on a quarterly basis. After you have been using the oxygen concentrator for approximately 3 months, a BOC Patient Service Representative (PSR) will

ring you to advise that a service is due on the equipment. It is important that you are available for this visit as the PSR will take the first reading of the concentrator hours meter. The meter reading will be entered into the BOC computer system.

This will issue a refund paid by bank transfer (BACS), directly into your account. It is essential that you confirm to us your electricity provider to allow us to calculate the correct level of reimbursement. We will reimburse at the lowest available tariff in your region, unless we have your electricity provider details. If you have not yet given us this information, please ring our Patient Service Centre on 0800 136 603.

The service visit It is very important your concentrator is first serviced after 3 months and then every 6 months after so that we can ensure it is in full working order. During these visits we can also check that you have enough cannulae/masks.

The ongoing process Future concentrator service visits will be planned at six monthly intervals when a meter reading will be taken by our PSR and a refund will be issued. In between these visits we will arrange to send you an estimated refund. Therefore 3 months after the concentrator service visit you will receive a further refund which is based on an estimate calculated by our computer system.

How do we calculate the estimated refund? The computer is able to estimate the hours the concentrator has been used based on the readings taken at installation and also at the first service. If your oxygen usage has changed and you have been over or underpaid then we will rectify this at the next refund.
