Q: I have water accumulating in my oxygen tubing. How do I dry it out and prevent it from happening?

A: During the colder, winter months many people experience excess moisture building up in their oxygen tubing. This is very common and easy to fix. To dry out your tubing disconnect the tubing from your humidifier bottle and attach it directly to your concentrator. This will dry out the tubing very well. How long it will take depends on how long your tubing is and how much water is present. To help prevent the tubing from accumulating too much water, try placing the tubing directly to the concentrator for 5-10 minutes each day (best at night before you go to sleep). This will dry the small amount present and help stop the accumulation.

Q: What if my equipment malfunctions during the night or over the weekend?

A: We provide 24/7 emergency services. If you should experience equipment issues or have technical questions you can call our office and you will be connected to our after hours technician. If the technician is unable to reslove your issue over the phone he will come out to your home.

Q: I am using my oxygen at the prescribed liter flow yet I still feel like I’m not getting enough.

Can I just increase the flow on the concentrator?

A: No. Oxygen is a Federally regulated drug just like any other prescription you may get from your pharmacy. You must obtain a new prescription from your doctor before you change your liter flow. If the prescribed does not seem to be adequete or you don’t feel well while using it, call you doctor or go your nearest hospital’s emergency room.

Q: I was provided a User Manual with my new equipment but I cannot seem to find it. Can I get a new one?

A: Yes. We are required to provide manuals and/or instructions for all our equipment. Just call us and we will mail you a new one and answer any questions you might have. You can also go to the equipment manual page on this site to access our online versions of your manual. Just go to the “Patient Resources” tab then click on “Equipment Manuals“.
