If you need to thoroughly disinfect the exterior of the oxygen concentrator, particularly when treating patients with contagious diseases or compromised immune systems, a diluted bleach solution is recommended. Use a 5.25% chlorine bleach mixture with one part bleach to four equal parts of water, and let it sit for 10 minutes to ensure effective disinfection.

Disinfection Instructions:

  • Always read the label and product information before using disinfectants to ensure safe usage.
  • When performing this procedure, it is important to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves and safety glasses, to ensure your safety. Additionally, cover any exposed skin on your arms to prevent accidental contact with any bleach solution that may have been applied to the concentrator.
  • Make sure to dispose of any accessories that are not appropriate for reuse, such as the oxygen tubing, tube connectors, nasal cannula and/or mask, oxygen outlet connector, and humidifier bottle.
  • To clean the exterior of the concentrator, use a clean lint-free cloth. If there is heavy soil, use a clean lint-free cloth dampened with water to remove it. For stubborn soil, use a soft bristle brush that is dampened with water. If water was used to remove soil, make sure to dry the concentrator using a clean lint-free cloth.
