With the continuous improvement of people’s living standards, the demand for health has gradually increased, and family oxygen inhalation has gradually become an important part of family rehabilitation. However, in the process of using the oxygen generator, we sometimes encounter some small problems. Today, the editor summarized a few common problems of home oxygen concentrators to share with you and attached the daily maintenance methods of the oxygen concentrator. If you have an oxygen concentrator at home, don’t miss it!
1: Boot alarm
The Boswell oxygen generator is equipped with a self-checking function. When we turn on the oxygen generator, the machine automatically enters the self-check program. This time will last for 2-3 seconds. During the self-check, the oxygen generator will light up all the instructions The light and the buzzer will sound, this is the performance of the machine’s normal work, not a reminder of fault alarm.
2: The hour meter has a reading
Sometimes when users receive a new machine, they find that the hour meter does not read “0”, so they often wonder if they are second-hand machines. In fact, the initial reading of the hour meter is indeed 0, and the reading on the hour meter is actually because each of our Boswell oxygen concentrators has to undergo pre-factory testing before leaving the factory. Generally, the routine test usually takes 2-8 hours ( In some cases, more than 8 hours may occur). After a series of tests, all qualified and ensured that there is no problem at all, it will be packed and shipped. The hour meter is timing during the whole process, and the timing function is irreversible. Therefore, the hour meter will have a reading of more than 2 hours for the machine that our users get.
3: Turn on fault lights both on
The specific performance is: the oxygen generator does not work when the machine is turned on, and the machine shows that there is no response after the machine is turned on, but the buzzer sounds once every 8 seconds, and the maintenance fault light is on at the same time.
This phenomenon is a power failure alarm of the machine, which means that the machine is not powered on when the oxygen generator switch is turned on. To solve the problem, check whether the power cord is connected to the machine. If there is no problem with the connection, check whether the plug is connected to the wall power supply or the power strip! If these are all right, we have to consider whether the power terminal is not powered.
4: The flow meter cannot be adjusted
The specific performance is as follows: After using the oxygen generator for a period of time, the flow rate becomes smaller and cannot be adjusted higher.
Regarding the problem that the flow cannot be adjusted, the first thing to consider is whether the nasal oxygen tube is broken, resulting in poor ventilation. After eliminating this factor, this phenomenon is usually caused by the blockage of the air outlet at the bottom of the humidification cup. The solution is relatively simple. Remove the humidification bottle, open the lid, and wipe off the scale attached to the bottom air outlet with a wet wipe OK. Here we suggest that qualified users can use distilled water, or pure water. This will minimize the generation of scale.
5: Maintenance of oxygen consumables
The Boswell oxygen generator is equipped with a four-stage filtration system, which is a first-stage filter cotton, a second-stage filter, a third-stage compressor inline filter, and a fourth-stage biofilm filter. In this four-stage filtration system, the third and fourth stage filters do not need to be replaced for life, while the first and second stage filters need to be replaced, especially the second stage filter, which is usually replaced every 2000 hours. Generally speaking, the primary filter cotton does not need to be replaced as long as there is no structural damage, and we need to clean it frequently, but if the structure is damaged, we need to replace it in time.
The main purpose of the medical oxygen generator:
1: Medical function. By supplying oxygen to patients, it can be used to treat diseases such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, chronic obstructive pneumonia, and other severe hypoxia symptoms such as gas poisoning.
2: Health function. Through oxygen to improve the quality of supply, to achieve the purpose of oxygen supplement and health care. It is suitable for middle-aged and elderly people, people with poor institutions, pregnant women, college entrance examination students, and other people with varying degrees of hypoxia. It can also be used to consume fatigue and restore physical functions after heavy physical or mental exhaustion.
3: The oxygen generator is suitable for small and medium hospitals, clinics, health stations, etc. in cities, villages, remote areas, mountainous areas, plateaus, etc. It is also suitable for nursing homes, home oxygen therapy, sports training centers, plateau military stations, and other oxygen-using places.
The main application place of the medical oxygen generator. The oxygen generator is suitable for small and medium-sized hospitals, clinics, health stations, etc. in cities, villages, remote areas, mountainous areas, and plateaus. It is also suitable for nursing homes, home oxygen therapy, sports training centers, plateau military stations and other oxygen-using places. However, oxygen generators for family-assisted therapy shall not be used for life maintenance or life health care. The product must be used in accordance with the prescribed daily use time and procedures under the guidance of a doctor, thereby reducing the risk of improper selection of indications.
