Introduction Oxylitre suction therapy products have been designed and manufactured by our own Research & Development Department. Designed with the latest technologies and the latest requirements of the European Directive RoHS (2002/95/EC) incorporated into the design. “The Petite” has been specifically designed for portable and field use with high performance flexibility. This product incorporates all the most significant aspects of robust design elements taken from our existing range of products which allows “The Petite” to be used in all their environments and more (Note: It has been tested to withstand a accelleration/deceleration of 20 g; twice the Ambulance Standard1 requirement, in its docking station). “The Petite” has the ability to operate in most external environments without having to connect to any power source for up to a combined period of up to 1½ hours.
Scope The Portable Suction unit incorporates a 12V NiMH, RoHS compatible replacable battery pack, which allows the unit to operate for a period up to 1½ hours. As the unit has been designed for use in either internal or external environments, this enables the unit to be taken to almost any point of use in emergency case scenarios. The unit is light in weight, easy to carry and is available with a carry bag. The unit is designed for intermittent use for the aspiration of bodily fluids, secretions, blood and vomitus e.g. from a patient’s airway. It should not be used for continuous suction or drainage as defined by BS EN ISO 10079-1 i.e. not to be used for specific endoscopic use, closed system wound drainage, suction for permanent tracheostomy etc. A wall mounting docking station is also available for easy storage. It can incorporate the required recharging power cord so that the unit connects to the recharging power source automatically when the unit is mounted for storage. The product is a fully rechargeable device and can be recharged from the following areas: 110V - 240V AC Mains power source. 12V - 28V DC power supply from an Ambulance/Road Vehicle or an Air Ambulance (the operating/charging of the unit from a supply voltage of 17V - 28V DC requires a white cable. This diverts the charging current to isolated circuitry). Any of the above is available with a wall storage docking station power cable.
Warranty The Company Warranty; in respect of durable goods (but not in respect of disposable goods) that such goods will correspond with their specification at the time of delivery and will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 7 years from delivery (N.B. Warranty is 1 year for the battery and 3 years for the Oxylitre Jar). Full warranty statement available on request or online at: www.oxylitre.co.uk

Operating Instructions The Petite Elite Portable Suction Pump is intended to be used by and/or its use clearly directed by suitably trained personnel for medical suction purposes. Before use please read the cautions and check for any damage/breakage of equipment. The tubing is to be routed as shown in section 3.1 on the standard Oxylitre Receiver Jar, and section 3.2 if using the VacSax disposable liner type. 4.1 Operating Panel Vacuum Level Selection Indicator

On/Off Button 4.1.1
“On/Off” Button Press the “ON” button and the unit will start and operate at the lowest suction level (80mmHg). Note: When on MAINS after switching “OFF” wait 5 seconds before switching “ON” again (unit needs to re-set in this operating mode).
Increase/Decrease Vacuum Button To increase or decrease the level of vacuum, simply press either the increase (▲) or decrease (▼) button and the level will be displayed.
Emergency Switch On When in an emergency scenario or where it is known that the highest vacuum level is required at an instant, the “500+” or “Max Vac” button can be pressed to give this instant requirement. Pressing the “500+” or “Max Vac” button will override the “On/Off” button or any pre-set level settings.
Pre-use Test As a Pre-use Test, press the 500+ or Max Vac button and allow the unit to run for a few seconds then occlude the patient tubing/catheter. The right hand vacuum indicator lights will advance to the top setting in approximately 10 seconds. 6
This indicates that the pump is operating correctly. Note that if then kept occluded the vacuum top LED can ‘pulse’ down to the lower LED and then back again. This is normal and is due to the unit detecting the internal relief valve operating under this constricted volume condition. In ordinary use; connected to a container, this valve function is not detected by the unit. WARNING: Ensure you release (‘drain down’) the vacuum after testing. Conduct testing on mains AND battery to check for battery function. If there is a leak in a jar seal (or disposable liner) for any reason and air can get into the system the test will become invalid. Do not for any reason keep the tubing / catheter occluded (keeping the system under vacuum) and switch off then on. The unit cannot reset and damage to the circuitry could occur. If the unit ever stalls on mains, switch off and disconnect from mains, reconnect and switch on again. 4.1.5
Vacuum Level Selection Indicator
When a vacuum level is selected the LEDs on the left will highlight the selected vacuum level. Actual Vacuum Level Indicator
During aspiration the actual level of vacuum gained will be indicated on the vacuum level indicator. This column may increase and decrease rapidly as the level of suction may vary depending on the density of the fluid and/or if air is being aspirated. Vacuum indicator accuracy is ±10%. Mains Connected Indicator When connected to an external power source; whether for charging or direct use, this LED will light up green (red for models circa pre 3rd quarter 2011). Battery Level Indicator The battery level indicators LEDs display the remaining battery capacity, from the internal battery. Note: When receiving the unit for the first time there is no requirement to condition the battery, the battery is conditioned by the normal charging processing.
Battery & Charging Characteristics The suction unit incorporates a 12V/4300mAh NiMH battery pack, which can operate the suction unit for a period up to 1½ hours. The battery pack is made of 10 x 4300mAh cells, which are RoHS compatible and can be recycled. The battery pack automatically starts recharging itself when connected to an external power source such as 110V – 240V AC mains or a vehicle 12V – 28V supply. There are 4 x battery level LED lights on the control panel that nominally indicate the battery charge level. These should only be used as indicators during operation from the internal battery, as they can be influenced by a number of factors including unit settings, temperature, battery condition etc. Caution: During aspiration the battery LEDs CAN flicker between the 4 levels but will return to a steady level when aspiration has stopped. This is a normal operating characteristic of the device under load.
Charging When charging from an external power source the top green light will flash on the battery indicator and the bottom light will stay illuminated. As the battery charges, the LEDs will sequentially light up on the battery indicator. This process will take approximately 2½ hours to fully charge the battery pack. N.B. If the top LED still flashes well beyond this time, this is indicative of the battery being faulty and will need replacing.
Fully Charged When then battery is fully charged the top green light will stop flashing and stay on.
In Use When the suction unit is being operated, the indicator lights will illuminate giving the level of charge remaining in the battery (on battery power only) – during free flow (see 5 above). When the unit is in use (and when not connected to an external power source), 7
the lights will gradually decrease to bottom of the battery indicator, which will remain illuminated until re-charging commences. At this point the suction unit will continue to operate until there is not sufficient power remaining to operate the unit. Note: As a guide, under battery supply only, when the second from bottom light extinguishes there is approximately 20 minutes of operation remaining. 5.4
In Use & Charging With the suction unit being operated whilst connected to an input supply, the top battery indicator light only will illuminate (N.B. this will flash if battery is not fully charged).
iii. iv. v.
Re-Charging When the Battery Level Indicator has only the bottom light illuminated, the unit requires recharging. Note: If this bottom light starts flashing, the unit must be turned off immediately or the battery could totally discharge. If not in regular use, it is recommended to fully charge at least monthly to maintain battery condition. Caution: It is recommended that battery condition is checked on a daily basis for correct function prior to use and/or distribution; even if left on charge, as all batteries can fail over time – see 5.1 above (noting battery packs carry a one year warranty only). Battery Removal/Replacement Warning: Only use batteries or accessories supplied by Oxylitre or its authorised distributers. This should only be conducted by trained technically competent personnel. Remove the two screws that attach the battery cover to the rear of the unit. Remove and disconnect the battery (by pressing down on the white connector tab) and dispose of safely according to local regulations. Replace the battery by first pushing in the white connector into the terminal in the battery compartment (note: can only be attached in one orientation) and then the battery unit itself, taking care with positioning the cable. Replace the battery cover and replace the screws. Note: For PSPs manufactured from 2014 onwards, when a new battery is connected, on first power up (battery only, no mains) the unit will perform an auto calibration (synchronisation) sequence and then the unit will automatically turn off. The sequence is as follows (information included on label in battery compartment): Turn on, all four battery LEDs will illuminate Unit automatically selects top vacuum After up to 10 seconds all four battery LEDs will go out. The battery display indicator will display correct battery level (showing one LED illuminated). The unit will then turn itself off. Unit is now ready for use. This is done prior to connecting to the mains to ensure correct battery management. Servicing, Preventative Maintenance & Cleaning The Hydrophobic/Bacterial Filter should be immediately replaced when found discoloured or if wetted/contaminated. Such contamination can reduce pump performance. Discolouration can be simply checked by comparing it with a new replacement filter. Decontaminate (or replace as necessary) the “Suction Connecting Tube” after each use. Use mild cleaning agents/detergents (e.g. diluted Dettol or similar) when cleaning the unit and Receiver Jar components (* see ‘Warning’ on page 2). The Oxylitre Receiver Jar and Lid Components are Autoclaveable up to 134°C (for 3 minutes); see Guidelines for Autoclaving Doc-OP-4403. The battery should be fully charged after use. Do not allow the battery to discharge or consistently fast charge as this will reduce the life of the battery pack. There are no user serviceable components inside the unit’s enclosure. Do not open the enclosure. Unauthorised repairs will invalidate the warranty. Refer servicing to Oxylitre qualified engineers ([email protected]). 8
