4. HIGH-LEVEL DISINFECTION
This step involves running the AIRVO 2 disinfection cycle, using the red disinfection
tube and blue disinfection filter from the AIRVO 2 Disinfection Kit 900PT600. This
cycle should be carried out at the recommended ambient temperature and humidity
levels (see below).
This cycle has been validated to achieve high-level disinfection, by heating the outlet
elbow at the heated breathing tube connection port to at least 87°C (189 OF) for at
least 30 minutes.
To ensure that these conditions are met for every disinfection cycle, the AIRVO 2
logs time and temperature (from two independent sensors) throughout the cycle. A
successful disinfection cycle is assured only when the countdown reaches zero.
THE FOLLOWING EQUIPMENT IS REQUIRED:
Ambient temperature: 18 - 30°C (64 - 86 OF)
Disconnect any oxygen supply from the unit before starting the disinfection cycle.
Do not operate the disinfection kit in a sterile room.
Ensure that the externai surfaces of the unit are dry before operating the disinfection kit.
Do not modify the disinfection tube or filter in any way.
Always switch off the unit when connecting or removing the disinfection tube.
Never spray any sanitizing liquid or cleaning fluid into the disinfection tube.
Covering any part of the disinfection tube or blocking the filter could result in serious damage to
If the disinfection tube becomes damaged. a new kit must be ordered. Replacement filters are

• Disconnect any oxygen supply from the unit before starting
the disinfection cycle.
4. WARM-UP AND CALIBRATION
The unit will first go through a series of calibration
checks for approximately 2 minutes, during which a
warm-up symbol will be displayed on screen.
S. DURING DISINFECTION
After a successful calibration, the disinfection
begins and runs for 55 minutes.
Press the Mode button at any
time to view a graph of the
current disinfection cycle.
