Caire Companion 5 Additional Information
Caring for you cannulas is a no-brainer and can help prevent the exposure to germs and bacteria that could lead to you getting sick, and it ensures a steady stream of oxygen can pump through it at all times. Simply replace your cannula every 2 weeks or as needed and you will be good to go.
Particle Filter Cleaning
The gross particle filter on the Caire Companion 5 is located inside the device handle at the upper back of the device.
Simply wash the filter once a week in warm water with disinfecting soap and let it air dry before re-installing it. The filter will need to be replaced as needed so make sure you inspect it after cleaning.
Just like with all oxygen concentrators, you should clean the outside case on a regular basis to sanitize the machine and keep it looking nice. To clean the Caire Companion 5 home concentrator all you need is a wash cloth dampened with a mild liquid detergent and water. Make sure the cloth is just damp, not wet to prevent water from getting in your machine.
Looking to enjoy the benefits of a home oxygen concentrator but afraid of your energy bill going through the roof?
Which is why we love the fact that the Caire Companion 5 was designed to be as energy efficient as possible.
When Compared to a standard stationary oxygen concentrator, the Caire Companion 5 is one of the most energy efficient & environmentally friendly stationary oxygen concentrators!
Although that number varies depending on your flow rate, even on the highest setting of 5 LPM, the Caire Companion 5 never uses over 350 watts of electricity.
For example, on a setting of 2, the unit only uses 250 watts of power, meaning at the lowest setting it uses even less.
Easy to Use Control Panel That Doesn't Require a Technical Degree
When using an oxygen concentrator the last thing you want is to be confused and frustrated when it comes to using the on-board control panel!
The control panel on the Caire Companion 5 stationary oxygen concentrator makes operating the machine as easy as counting to 3.
The control panel is conveniently placed on the front and to the right, allowing you to easily reach to turn it off.
But Caire didn't stop there.
The flow gauge on the front of the unit is clear and easy to read so you know exactly how much oxygen you are receiving, and with a turn knob you can quickly increase or decrease your flow setting.
Furthermore, you will also notice a small screen on the device. This simply shows you a digital display of your elapsed operation time of the device.
Finally, the control panel also features a LED display that contains green, red, and yellow. The green light indicates normal operation, and the yellow* and red lights indicate alarms conditions. (See the Alarm Conditions section of the instruction for more information.)
Say Bye Bye to Painful Nasal Dryness
A frequent issue our oxygen users have when using a continuous flow oxygen concentrator is the unfortunate and painful occurrence of nasal and throat dryness.
Which can leading to cracking and painful nose bleeds.
