Oxygen therapy is an essential part of healthcare for millions of people in the U.S., and if you are one of those millions who rely on supplemental oxygen, you’ll want to take good care of your portable concentrator. These powerful machines deliver life-giving oxygen and can last a long time if properly cared for. The new Rhythm P2 concentrator is a great choice for people who want convenient oxygen without lugging around a bulky unit. If you have the Rhythm P2, here are some tips on how to take care of it so it will last as long as possible:
1. Read the manual.
The first thing you’ll want to do is take the time to fully understand how your unit works and how to properly operate it. This will save you time and hassle, and prevent any mishaps. Each unit is different, and the Rhythm P2 user’s manual will tell you how to do things like change the batteries, change flow settings, and more.
2. Stay away from harsh cleansers.
While you do need to wipe down your concentrator, as well as clean the filter regularly, it’s important that you don’t use harsh cleaning solutions. Only use a clean, lint-free cloth on the outside, and only mild soap and water on the filters and cannula. It’s important to let all parts of the unit dry completely, and keep dirt, residue, and harsh chemicals away from your concentrator unit.
3. Store and handle with care.
Oxygen concentrators like the Rhythm P2 are able to deliver such efficient oxygen due to the technology and components they feature, and these components can be fragile. If you want your unit to work well and stay that way, handle it with care. Don’t bump it around, and try not to drop it. Make sure if you are taking it out with you, it’s secured in a bag or with the carrying strap. Remember, it’s a valuable piece of medical equipment and should be treated with care!
