3. Installation and Start‐up 3.1 Installation When unpacking the mattress, check that none of the parts are damaged. In the event of damage, contact Care of Sweden or your local dealer before using the product. 1. Place the mattress on top of an existing mattress. If possible, secure it by pulling the elastic bands on the bottom over the corners of the underlying mattress. Note! If the mattress have an integrated foam core (CuroCell S.A.M.® CF16), place the mattress directly on to the bed base. Use the straps on the cover to fasten the mattress to the bed base.
2. Hang the pump by the foot end of the bed, or place it on a flat sturdy surface. Place the power cord so there is no risk of stumbling over it, run it over with the bed wheels, or getting it jammed when raising or lowering the bed. NOTE! A pump bag is available as an option. 3. Connect the air tubes coming from the mattress to the side of the pump. 4. Check to make sure that the power is set to ’0’ (off). Plug in the power cord into an approved outlet (220 V).
NOTE! Make up the bed with sheets to increase user comfort. Check that the CPR‐valve is closed.
3.2 Start‐up and settings NOTE! Always read the user manual prior to use. 1. Start the pump by pressing ’1’ (on), on the side of the pump. The green light is lit. 2. The pump starts filling the mattress with air. It takes approximately 15‐20 minutes. 3. If necessary the patient can lie on the mattress even when not inflated, in this case, the underlay will carry the load. When using a mattress with an air underlay, this must be inflated.
3.3 Comfort settings The air pressure in the mattress can be adjusted according to the patient´s desire for comfort. Always consult the prescriber or other authorised personnel for the appropriate setting. Adjust the pressure with the comfort setting knob according to the table on the pump.
NOTE! When the head end of the bed is raised, the pressure should be increased at least one (1) step. For amputated users, when only part of the mattress is under load, the pressure should be increased by 1‐2 steps. Recommended users weight is up to 200 kg.
3.4 Hand check Hand check is used to ensure that the mattress is properly inflated. This should be done regularly, once per shift, after changing the position in the bed or changing the comfort settings. Open the cover. Place a flat hand under the air cells directly underneath the user’s pelvic region and make sure that the user does not lay directly on the underlying mattress. There should be about 1‐2 fingers margin. If you can feel the user´s body resting on your hand you need to increase the comfort settings to next highest step. Wait 10 minutes and perform a new hand check.
3.5 CPR In case of an emergency where CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is necessary: Rapidly pull the CPR band on the tubes between the pump and the mattress. Remove the tube connections on the side of the pump, for even faster deflation. Note! Make sure that the CPR connector is properly connected after use.
3.6 Low pressure By an abnormally low air pressure, see chapter 7 for trouble shooting.
WARNING! If the air pressure remains low, search for damages on the mattress and the tubes. Repair when needed or contact the supplier.
4. Cleaning and reconditioning It is important to follow the instructions below before using the product for another user. Consult the hygiene responsible or the supplier for help and instructions when unsure.
4.1 Cleaning PUMP
VARNING! Do not open the pump housing – risk of electric shock. Service and maintenance must be performed by authorised technicians. Do not get the pump wet or submerge it in any liquid. Wipe off the pump with a damp cloth and a mild cleaning solution for this purpose such as: alcohol with or without tensides, Isopropanol 70 %, oxidating solutions or chlorine max 1 %. If using a different agent, choose one that does not affect the plastic of the pump housing. 8
MATTRESS COVER Covers can be wiped off with a mild cleaning solution for this purpose such as: alcohol with or without tensides, Isopropanol 70 %, oxidating solutions or chlorine max 1 %. Excrements and blood spots must be removed immediately with cold water. Carefully follow local instructions and usage instructions for the cleaner.
Multi‐layer covers should be divided before washing. Wash with like colours. Chlorine and phenol‐based cleaners could have a negative impact on the PU surface and should be avoided. If chlorine is used, we recommend a mixture of max. 1%. INNER COVER SOFT (accessories)

4.2 Reconditioning PUMP See section 4.1 for instructions. MATTRESS 1. Disconnect the tubes and let the air out, also open the CPR valve. 2. Remove the cover. See instructions in chapter 4.1 for cleaning covers. If the product is equipped with a foam core this should be removed and cleaned separately. 3. Move the mattress to a clean area, which is suitable for cleaning. 4. Wipe off the cells, all tubes and the CPR valve with a mild cleaning solution for this purpose such as: alcohol with or without tensides, Isopropanol 70 %, oxidating solutions or chlorine max 1 %. 5. Wipe off and disinfect all the work surfaces with an alcohol‐based cleaning agent intended for this purpose. 6. Put the mattress together. If cells for any reason have loosened from the tubes, these must be replaced according to drawing in chapter 2.3. FOAM CORE (CuroCell S.A.M.® CF16) Clean the affected area with a mild cleaning solution for this purpose such as: alcohol with or without tensides, Isopropanol 70%, oxidating solutions or chlorine max 1 %.

Solution Check that the power cord is connected to an electrical outlet. Check that all fuses are OK.
The user lies directly on the bed
Pressure might be incorrectly set. Adjust it according to the weight table, and wait a few minutes. Check again using the ‘hand check’, see chapter 3.4. Check that the CPR‐valve is closed.
The mattress moves around
Check that the mattress is secured with the elastic bands to the underlying mattress. Or, if the mattress have an integrated foam core (CuroCell S.A.M.® CF16), secured by using the straps on the cover to fasten the mattress to the bed base.
The pump makes a noise, or vibrates
Check how the pump is hung on the bed. Remove the pump and listen whether this makes a difference. Can be resolved by putting the pump on a flat, steady surface or by placing a towel between the pump and bed. Pump bag (accessory) can also be used.
If your questions are not answered by the above information, please contact Care of Sweden or your local dealer for further assistance.
