How to setup - use and maintain an oxygen concentrator

Oxygen concentrators are fairly new household devices in India and there is very little knowhow among citizens around using the device correctly. In order to help setup and use Oxygen Concentrators, the Telecom Sector Skill Council has released an explainer. An Oxygen Concentrator is a simple device that simply absorbs air from the room, heats it, eliminates nitrogen and delivers compressed oxygen. Note that Oxygen Concentrators do not create oxygen and at the same time there’s no scientific evidence that Oxygen Concentrators do not work inside closed rooms.
 
If you have recently purchased an Oxygen Concentrator then here’s how to setup. But before that, here is what you would need. Also, note that some models can be used as nebulisers too.
 

Pre-requisites

- Get a 1kv stabiliser t connect it to the Oxygen Concentrator
 
- Check that all accessories are present inside the box which include, filters, water humidifier bottle, breathing tubes, power cable, etc.
 
- Locate a power source with a three-pin socket. Do not use an extension board.
 
- Keep a bottle of clean lukewarm water, preferably from an RO filter, handy. The water should not be very warm.
 
- Wash your hands well and do not use any cleaning solutions to clean the nozzles or device prior to use.
 
- Keep the Oxygen Concentrator at an open space away from walls, curtains, etc.
 
- Ensure that there’s no open flames nearby
 
- Ensure that aerosols, cooking fumes and other airborne indoor impurities are not present near the machine.
