How do I operate an oxygen concentrator?
Stationary oxygen concentrators operate basically the same way. They have a power switch, they need a power source to operate, they have a flow meter to adjust the flow, and produce roughly 95% oxygen. Locate your concentrator where it has about 1 foot clearance from all sides for ventilation. Plug the machine into the wall. Do not use a power strip or extension cord. Turn the power switch to the on position. The machine will beep briefly – this is normal. Adjust the liter flow to your prescribed amount by turning the liter dial. The ball should split the line associated with the desired flow.
