Important Safety Requirements
Caution! U.S. federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the
order of a physician.
Warnings: A warning represents the possibility of harm to the
operator or patient
For proper operation, your concentrator requires unobstructed
ventilation. The ventilation ports are located at the rear base of the
device and at the side air inlet filter. Always make sure that these
areas are not obstructed by items which may impede ventilation (like
blankets, foam, curtains, etc.). Do not place the concentrator in a
small closed space (such as a closet).
Do not remove the covers of this device. Servicing must be referred to
an authorized and trained Respironics home care provider.
In the event of an equipment alarm or if you are experiencing any
signs of discomfort consult your home care provider and/or your
health care professional immediately.
Oxygen generated by this concentrator is supplemental and should
not be considered life supporting or life sustaining. In certain
circumstances oxygen therapy can be hazardous; any user should
seek medical advice prior to using this device.
Where the prescribing health care professional has determined that
an interruption in the supply of oxygen, for any reason, may have
serious consequences to the user, an alternate source of oxygen
should be available for immediate use.
Oxygen vigorously accelerates combustion and should be kept away
from heat or open flame. Not suitable for use in the presence of a
flammable anesthetic mixture with air or with oxygen or nitrous oxide.
Do not smoke, allow others to smoke or have open flames near the
concentrator when it is in use.
Do not use oil or grease on the concentrator or its components as
these substances, when combined with oxygen, can greatly increase
the potential for a fire hazard and personal injury.
Do not use the oxygen concentrator if either the plug or power cord is
damaged. Do not use extension cords or electrical adapters.

Cautions: A caution represents the possibility of damage to the
Do not operate the concentrator without all the filters in place. The
filters must be totally dry before operating the device.
Do not place liquids on or near the device.
If liquid is spilled on the device, turn the power off and unplug from
electrical outlet before attempting to clean up spill. Call your home
care provider if device does not continue to work properly.
Your health care professional has determined that supplemental oxygen
is of benefit to you and has prescribed an oxygen concentrator set at a
specific flow setting to meet your needs. DO NOT change the flow settings
unless your health care professional tells you to do so. The Millennium M10
oxygen concentrator is intended to provide supplemental oxygen to persons
requiring oxygen therapy. This device is not intended to be life supporting
or life sustaining. The Millennium produces concentrated oxygen from room
air for delivery to a patient requiring low flow oxygen therapy. The oxygen
from the air is concentrated using a molecular sieve and a pressure swing
absorption process. Your home care provider will show you how to operate
the concentrator and will be available to answer any questions. You should
contact him or her in the future if you have any questions or problems.
Parts of Your Concentrator
Select a location that allows the concentrator to draw in room air
without being restricted. Make sure that the device is at least 3 inches
away from walls, furniture, and especially curtains that could impede
adequate airflow to the device. Do not place the device near any heat
After reading this entire manual, plug the power cord into an

Connect the oxygen tubing to the oxygen outlet port.
Press the power switch to the On [ I ] position. Initially, all the indicator
lights will turn on and the audible alarm will sound for a few seconds.
After that time, only the green indicator should remain lit.
After turning on the device, you should allow at least 10 minutes for
the device to warm up.
Adjust the flow to the prescribed setting by turning the knob on the
top of the flow meter until the ball is centered on the line marking the
specific flow rate.
Be sure oxygen is flowing through the cannula. If it is not, refer to the

Cannula and Tubing
Contact your home care provider if you have questions concerning the
use of these accessories.
Warning: It is important to unplug the device before any
maintenance or cleaning is performed.
Cleaning and Changing the Air Inlet Filter
Cleaning the air inlet filter is the most important maintenance activity
that you will perform and should be done at least once a week.
Remove the filter cap.
Remove the filter from the cabinet.
Visually inspect the filter for damage, such as holes or tears.
If damaged, replace with a new filter. Contact your health care
provider for a new filter if necessary.
Rinse and wash the filter in warm water. A mild detergent may be
used if rinsed thoroughly.
Squeeze out the excess water and allow the filter to air dry. The filter
should be completely dry before using again. Excess moisture may
impair the proper operation of the device.
Visually inspect the filter after cleaning. Make sure it is not damaged
Reinsert the filter on the cabinet.
Reinstall the filter cap.
Cleaning the Device
You should also clean the exterior case of the device. You may use a
damp cloth to wipe down the exterior case. If medical disinfectants are used,
be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Power Interrupt Alarm
If the device is turned on but not operating, the alarm condition will be
activated. This is often the result of either the device not being plugged in or
a power failure. This feature is powered by an internal 9V battery.
To test the condition of the battery you should test this alarm state often
by unplugging the device and switching the power on. If the alarm condition
is not activated, you should contact your home care provider to replace
the battery. If the device shuts down because of a power failure, turn the
power switch off for two minutes before restarting to allow the system to
Operating Condition Indicators and Alarms
Power: The GREEN indicator illuminates when the device is turned
Normal Oxygen (Model M10605 only): The extra GREEN indicator
illuminates when the device is delivering a normally expected
percentage of oxygen. The illumination of this indicator is delayed for
several minutes after start up to allow the system to stabilize.
Low Oxygen: The YELLOW indicator illuminates continuously* to
alert the user when some corrective action is required. Following
the troubleshooting guide in this manual, this action can normally
be performed by the user. Call your home care provider if the
troubleshooting actions fail to end this alert condition.
Alarm: The RED indicator illuminates continuously and the audible
alarm sounds continuously if the device detects a system malfunction.
If this happens when the device is plugged in, you should turn off the
device and call your home care professional immediately.
* Units may have intermittent RED indicator and sound an audible alarm
accompanying the YELLOW indicator under a Low Oxygen condition.
