If you are currently using oxygen therapy but are still dragging around large tanks with you all the time, it is time you learned about the Invacare® HomeFill® Oxygen System. The system allows you to fill your own oxygen cylinders right in your own home, ensuring you never run out of oxygen when you need it. The convenience these refillable cylinders of various sizes offer helps you live the happy, active and independent life you always knew was possible, even with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Getting Started is a Snap
After speaking with your physician and/or provider about switching to the HomeFill System, your provider will handle the setup. You should also talk to him or her about what size cylinders will be best for your lifestyle.
The best way to take advantage of the System is to get into a routine filling your cylinders. For example, commit to filling a cylinder each night before going to bed. The good news is that the system will shut itself off when finished, so you never have to worry about leaving the house or going to bed when you are filling your cylinders. This way, you will always have a cylinder ready for use. It’s as easy as snap, fill and go!
The system is also extremely reliable and even has an oxygen sensor, which, if the purity of oxygen happens to drop below 90 percent for any reason, will shut off the system automatically. This way you are guaranteed to have pure oxygen filling your cylinders, which are extremely durable to boot.
Caring for Your HomeFill System is Easy
HomeFill Systems are low maintenance: The only upkeep required is to clean the cooling fan filter every two weeks by running water over it in the sink or removing air particles with the vacuum. There is also a HEPA filter on the concentrator that should be changed every three years, but this should be done by your provider.
How Does it Work?
The System will rest easily on top of your existing Invacare stationary oxygen concentrator. It does not need batteries to charge, but rather works along with the stationary machine.
And filling cylinders is quick, too. In fact, you can fill an ML6 cylinder (which provides about 6 hours of oxygen) in only 75 minutes.
- Using the HomeFill System means:
- An unlimited supply of oxygen means no fear of running out
- Increased mobility
- Ability to participate in activities and gain independence
- No more scheduled oxygen deliveries!
