SECTION 5—USING THE HUMIDIFIER
NOTE: For this procedure, refer to FIGURE 5.1. 1. Place the assembled CPAP and humidifier on a firm, flat surface at a level lower than your sleeping position. 2. Remove and rinse out the water reservoir assembly. Refer to Cleaning Water Reservoir Assembly on page 15.

ALWAYS remove the water reservoir assembly from the heated humidifier before filling with water. 3. Fill the water reservoir assembly to the fill line with water (approx. 1½ cups or 350 ml). Invacare recommends using distilled water. DO NOT overfill the water reservoir assembly. 4. Replace the reservoir cap.

CAUTION

CAUTION
ALWAYS reattach the water reservoir assembly to the heated humidifier immediately after filling with water. Allowing water to sit in the reservoir when it is not connected to the humidifier may cause the reservoir plate to separate from the reservoir causing water to leak. Take precautions to protect furniture from water damage. 5. Reattach the water reservoir assembly to the humidifier. NOTE: Ensure that the air inlet of the humidifier elbow in the back of the water reservoir assembly slips securely over the humidifier air outlet.

SECTION 5—USING THE HUMIDIFIER 6. Connect the six (6) ft. flexible tube to the reservoir outlet port on the reservoir cap.

CAUTION
Avoid moving or tilting the humidifier when the water reservoir assembly is filled. DO NOT turn the humidifier on without the water reservoir assembly installed. 7. Preheat the water before turning on the air flow and before going to bed by pressing the heated humidifier button ( ) on the CPAP device. The word “HEAT” will appear on the display screen and the GREEN heated humidifier indicator light on the CPAP will turn on.

The preheat mode will end and the heater plate will turn off after 20 minutes if the CPAP air flow is not turned on. If you do not wish to pre-heat the water, you can press the heated humidifier button after the air flow is turned on. 8. To adjust the temperature setting of the heated humidifier, perform the following: A. Press and hold the heated humidifier button on the CPAP device until the bar scales of the humidifier screen appear. NOTE: Each bar that appears represents five (5) degrees. A single bar represents a water temperature setting of 70°F (21°C), while sixteen bars represents a water temperature setting of 145°F (63°C). B. Press the up ( setting. ) or down ( ) buttons to change the

CAUTION

C. Press the Enter button to save the setting.
Part No 1118358 13 Invacare® Polaris™EX™ Heated Humidifier

SECTION 5—USING THE HUMIDIFIER NOTE: The ideal humidity setting depends on room temperature and humidity. Initially, a setting of 8 bars (105°F/40.5°C) is recommended and is the factory default. You can adjust this setting at any time. NOTE: If no humidification is needed, the CPAP can be used without removing the heated humidifier and water reservoir assembly. Turn the humidifier off.

The humidifier turns on whenever the temperature settings menu is entered on the CPAP. However, it will turn off in 20 minutes if the air flow is not turned on.

NOTE: During the installation procedure, ensure that the O-ring is installed and does not roll off or separate from the reservoir plate. If it does separate, gently remove the reservoir plate and O-ring from the water reservoir and repeat STEPS 1 through 10. 1. Before installing the reservoir plate into the water reservoir, ensure that the O-ring is undamaged and installed in the channel around the reservoir plate. 2. Identify the side of the reservoir plate labeled “This side out”. 3. Turn the water reservoir upside down. 4. Align the water reservoir so that one of the rounded ends of the bottom opening is pointing toward you. 5. Loosely lay the reservoir plate on the bottom opening of the water reservoir with the printing “This Side Out” facing you. 6. Place your thumbs on each side of the closest rounded end of the reservoir plate (Detail “A”). 7. Press the reservoir plate into the bottom opening of the water reservoir with your thumbs. 8. Move each thumb a small and equal distance up the sides of the reservoir plate and press the reservoir plate into the bottom opening of the water reservoir. 9. Continue to work your way up the reservoir plate in this manner, pressing more of the reservoir plate into position each step of the way until the other end is reached. 10. Inspect all sides of the reservoir plate to make sure that it is completely installed and that none of the O-ring has squeezed out. If some of the O-ring has squeezed out, repeat the installation.
