1 O2 cylinders are Green & stamped "For medical use" Filled to 2000 PSI... can be a deadly missile O2 aids combustion - No smoking or sparks DO NOT HANDLE BY NECK ALONE Hold with at least one arm around bottle DO NOT STAND IT ON ITS BASE Lay it down in a secure position, and keep in its bag

2 O2 Cylinder Main Valve Regulator Flow Rate Knob wrench Regulator index pins align with holes in O2 Cylinder neck Regulator Screw Flow Rate Indicator

3 Inspect seal for dirt/debris Do not cover w/ adhesive tape, petroleum jelly, etc. Face opening away from yourself/bystanders With wrench, "Crack" cylinder to clear away dirt/debris

4 Place Regulator over neck Make sure O-Ring is in place (carry spare) Align Pins of regulator with holes in cylinder neck Tighten Regulator screw (finger tight) Should see no space between regulator and collar wall

5 Make sure flow rate knob reads “0” Open cylinder and read pressure (PSI) (righty-tighty, lefty loosey) Full is 2000; too low to keep in service

6 Attach O2 delivery device tubing Delivery Device flow rates - Non-Rebreather Mask & BVM L/min. - Nasal Cannula L/min. ( >6 L/min causes nasal irritation)

7 Non- Rebreather Mask ─ Hold thumb over valve in Non-Rebreather Mask ─ Turn on O2 and watch for bag to inflate ─ Apply mask to patient ─ Bag should not deflate completely when patient inhales

8 Sizes: D (350L), Super D (500L), and M (3,000L) Duration of Flow (gauge pressure – safe residual pressure) x cylinder constant/flow rate safe residual = 200, cylinder constant =.16 for D and 1.56 for M => 20 minutes for D at 15 L/min, 3.1hr for M
