How to Operate Your Compressor:

NOTE— Before initial operation, your nebulizer should be cleaned following cleaning instructions, or as recommended by your physician or Sunrise provider.

1. Place compressor on a level, sturdy surface so that the controls can be easily reached when seated.

2. Open door to storage compartment

Figure 1.

figure-2.gif (5889 bytes)  

3. Make sure the power switch is in the "Off" position Figure 2. Unwrap power cord and plug power cord into an appropriate wall outlet (refer to Specifications). Plug models 5650H & 4650D into a grounded wall outlet (refer to Grounding Instructions on reverse).

DANGER— DeVilbiss compressor / nebulizer must be operated on the specified power source to avoid risk of electric shock and damage to the compressor.

4. Wash hands.

5. Connect one end of the nebulizer tubing to the air-outlet connector

figure-3.gif (5139 bytes)  

Figure 3.

NOTE— During high-humidity weather conditions, condensation (water build up) can occur in the internal hose of the compressor. It is recommended that the compressor be turned on and allowed to run for two (2) minutes before the tubing is attached to the air outlet connector.


figure-4.gif (3609 bytes)  

6. Assemble clean nebulizer parts by placing baffle down in nebulizer chamber. Holding chamber stationary, screw on nebulizer cap. Add prescribed medication through the opening on cap using a medicine dropper or premeasured dose container Figure 4.

 

figure-5.gif (4384 bytes) 7. Assemble mouthpiece and T-piece (if applicable) and insert into the top of the nebulizer cap Figure 5. If using an aerosol mask, insert the bottom part of the mask directly into the top of the nebulizer cap.
figure-6.gif (4958 bytes)  

8. Attach tubing to nebulizer air-inlet connector Figure 6.

9. Press the power switch "On" to start the compressor.

figure-7.gif (9693 bytes)  

10. Begin treatment by placing the mouthpiece between teeth. With mouth closed, inhale deeply and slowly through mouth as aerosol begins to flow then exhale slowly through the mouthpiece Figure 7.

If treatment needs to be interrupted, simply press power switch "Off".

NOTE— Some physicians recommend a "clearing breath" after every five to seven treatment breaths. Remove mouthpiece from mouth and hold breath for at least five seconds (ten is better), then exhale slowly.

Nebulizer Cleaning

All parts of the nebulizer, except tubing, should be cleaned according to the following instructions. Your physician and/or Sunrise provider may specify a certain cleaning procedure. If so, follow their recommendations.

WARNING— To prevent possible risk of infection from contaminated medication, cleaning of the nebulizer is recommended after each aerosol treatment.

After Every Use:

1. With power switch in the "Off" position, unplug power cord from wall outlet.

2. Disconnect tubing from the air-inlet connector and set aside.

3. Disassemble mouthpiece or mask from cap. Open chamber by turning cap counterclockwise and remove baffle.

4. Wash all items, except tubing, in a hot water / dishwashing detergent (Joy Liquid Detergent) solution. Rinse under hot tap water for 30 seconds to remove detergent residue. Allow to air dry.

Daily:

1. Using a clean container or bowl, soak items in three parts hot water to one part white vinegar (Heinz White Vinegar) for 30 minutes Figure 9 OR use a medical bacterial-germicidal disinfectant available through your provider.

For reusable nebulizer only, clean daily in dishwasher using top shelf. Be sure to follow manufacturer's instructions carefully.

2. With clean hands, remove items from disinfectant solution, rinse under hot tap water and air dry on a clean paper towel. Store in a zip-lock bag.

NOTE— The DeVilbiss Disposable Nebulizer will last 14 days, depending on usage.

6 MicroMist Disposable Nebulizers $15 Lasts 3 Months.

 

NOTE— Do not towel dry nebulizer parts; this could cause contamination.

CAUTION— The DeVilbiss Reusable Nebulizer is dishwasher safe, but do not place any disposable nebulizer parts in an automatic dishwasher; doing so could cause damage.

WARNING— To prevent possible risk of infection from contaminated cleaning solutions, always prepare fresh solution for each cleaning cycle and discard solution after each use.

3. Keep the outer surface of the tubing dust-free by wiping regularly.

Disposable nebulizer tubing does not have to be washed because only filtered air passes through it.

NOTE— The DeVilbiss Disposable Nebulizer will last 14 days, depending on usage.

Proper cleaning will also help extend the life of the nebulizer. Because it is disposable, we recommend that an extra nebulizer be kept on hand at all times.

Sunrise also manufactures the DeVilbiss Reusable Nebulizer that is dishwasher safe and may be cleaned and reused for up to one year.

Hospital and Medical Facility Model Units  3 Prong Cord

Model 5650H & 4650D Grounding Instructions

This product should be grounded . In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This product is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged in to an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.

DANGER — Improper use of the grounding plug can result in the risk of electric shock.

If repair or replacement of the cord or plug is necessary , contact your qualified Sunrise provider .

1 . This unit is for use on a nominal 115V circuit and has a grounding plug. A temporary adapter , which looks like the adapter illustrated in Figures B and C , may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle (as shown in Figure B ) if a properly grounded outlet is not available . The temporary adapter should be used only until a qualified electrician can install a properly grounded outlet ( Figure A ). The green colored rigid ear , lug, and the like extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. When ever the adapter is used , it must beheld in place by the metal screw.

2. If it is necessary to use an extension cord , use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a three-blade grounding plug, and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the unit. If power cord is damaged do not use unit, and contact a qualified Sunrise Medical provider.
