Frequently Asked Questions
Precision Medical’s oxygen conservers are designed to be used with high-pressure oxygen systems. It consists of a cylinder connection, cylinder contents gauge, high-to-low pressure regulator, orifice plate and a conserving demand module. The regulator reduces the high pressure of the cylinder to the working pressure of the orifice plate. The orifice plate uses calibrated orifices to deliver a selected flow to the conserving demand module. The conserving demand module controls the pulse size and timing to the patient. It supplies a pulse of oxygen at the beginning of each breath. This reduces the oxygen demand on the system and also limits the drying of the patient’s airways. The flow is determined by setting the flow control knob to the prescribed flow. Finally the oxygen is supplied to the patient through the cannula.
Our oxygen conservers are intended to regulate high pressure cylinders that provide supplemental oxygen to oxygen users who have difficulty extracting oxygen from the air they breathe in. Our conserving regulators are for patients who would normally receive their oxygen via a nasal cannula. EasyPulse5 and EasyPulse 5+6 deliver 100% oxygen at flow settings and are used as an oxygen saving device.
