Description Specs

DeVilbiss PD1000 Conserving Device

Fits all CGA 870 post cylinders.

Featuring PulseDose technology, the PD1000 is a smaller, more compact and attractive unit. With an extremely lightweight design and true 3:1 savings, the PD1000 delivers high efficiency and improved clinical benefits. It features quiet operation and has been found to be less irritating to patients. Impact-resistant materials are used in the conserver's outer covering making it not only durable but attractive as well.

The DeVilbiss PD1000 Compact Conserving Device is intended as a delivery device for medical-grade oxygen from high-pressure oxygen cylinders. This is an ambulatory device, which allows patients to ambulate longer than they would with a continuous flow regulator on the same cylinder.

How Pulsedose works:
PulseDose dramatically extends the use time from a supply of oxygen, offering increased mobility with improved comfort and increased efficiency. The reliability and safety of PulseDose oxygen delivery has been proven effective in clinical testing.

Because oxygen is released only during inhalation, the constant flow of oxygen into the nostrils is eliminated. Many users find PulseDose oxygen delivery more comfortable than continuous flow delivery systems. The short pulse of oxygen delivered during inhalation is almost undetectable, and the humidity in the room air helps maintain a normal level of moisture in the nasal cavity. This greatly reduces the discomfort of dehydration associated with a continuous flow oxygen system.

Battery Life:
  1. Typical new battery life is 200 hours when used at 25C, 2 LPM and 20 BPM. Settings and breath rate will affect battery life.
  2. After the Low Battery (flashing red) light illuminates, the unit will continue to operate about four hours when used at 25C, 20 BPM and the 6 LPM setting.
