microAIR Control Panel. Treatment times are 5, 10, 15, and 20 minute cycles.

Alternating Pressure Mode:
The alternating pressure times indicate the frequency of deflation or inflation of half of the air cushions (even or odd numbered). For example, 10 minutes is selected. In this example, the even numbered air cushions in the mattress will deflate, while the odd numbered cushions remain at constant pressure. When 10 minutes has elapsed, the even numbered air cushions will inflate while the odd numbered cushions remain at constant pressure. When 10 minutes has elapsed again, the odd numbered air cushions deflate while the even numbered cushions remain at constant pressure. The air cushions continue to inflate or deflate like this as long as an alternating pressure time has been selected. At all times, half of the air cushions remain at a constant pressure when an alternating pressure time has been selected.

Static Mode:
all air cushions in the mattress are maintained at constant pressure. The Static LED is illuminated GREEN.

Minimum Pressure Setting:
The minimum pressure setting during Alternating Pressure is set to 0 (2 mmHg) at the factory. This means that the mattress will deflate as much as possible during the deflation time when using 10, 15 or 20 minute Alternating Pressure times. The setting can be changed so the mattress will only deflate to 50% of the selected pressure setting.

Press the Fowler button to activate the patient Fowler Mode. When this mode is activated, the control unit increases the pressure in the mattress to prevent the patient from bottoming out .
