BREATHCALL® SERIES JUST A PUFF OF AIR CALLS THE NURSE FOR THE DISABLED PATIENT

MOUNTING, USE AND CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

MOUNTING:
Install clamp on headboard of bed frame so flexible arm projects out and around, pointing toward patients mouth. Point arm slightly downward so liquid from patient’s mouth will not leak into tubing.

NORMAL USE:
When treating patient or changing linen, flexible arm may be flipped out of the way. When patient is back in normal position, BreathCall® flexible arm can be moved to original position with straw pointing to patient’s mouth.
A sealed package of 12 clear soft vinyl straws two inched long is furnished. To install in the end of flexible arm wet end of straw with alcohol and turn slightly while inserting. Straw can be pulled out for replacement.
Units are tested for and suitable for use in oxygen atmosphere. They are also suitable, due to air activation, for use by patients when ANY CONTACT WITH ELECTICITY can present a danger to the patient.

CLEANING:
The outside and inside of the flexible arm, the clamp and tubing with the exception of the switch plug can be disinfected with most products or mild detergents.

DISINFECTING:
For disinfecting, one suggestion is, but not limited to, Clorox broad spectrum quaternary cleaner made by Healthlink, Inc. (www.healthlinkinc.net).
HOW TO CLEAN AND DISINFECT:
Always hold, maintain, and keep the wall switch plug higher than the cleansing solution when you immerse the component into your disinfecting solution. After disinfection and while always keeping plug elevated, hang the arm and tubing allowing all cleansing fluids ro empty. Allow adequate time for the unit to dry before raising arm to level of plug tube assembly thus preventing liquid from leading back into the contact plug.
Caution When disinfecting: do not allow any fluids to reach the plug that is inserted into the wall jack or possible malfunction or switch plug may result.

**Note: Accessory package – Replace filters as needed.

*** Warning ***
For Healthcare personnel: BreathCall® unit is NOT intended for multiple patient use due to bloodborne pathogen concerns and cross contamination.
***DO NOT KINK, CRIMP or Bend Tubing.***

CLEANING:
The outside of vinyl tubing and plug can be disinfected with most sterilization products or mild detergents.

DISINFECTING:
For disinfecting, one suggestion is Citriguard II made by Healthlink, Inc. (www.healthlinkinc.net).

Coli, Staphylococcus, Salmonella, Streptococcus and MRSA. Citriguard II can be used to disinfect but it does not completely “sterilize”.

STERILIZATION:
Do not steam sterilize unit – high heat will destroy vinyl parts. Maximum temperature is 130 fahrenheit.
For sterilization you will need to use a Glutaraldehyde based, cold-sterilization solution. The following link from NIOSH (National Institute Occupational Safety & Health) http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/glutaraldehyde/ states: “trade names for Glutaraldehyde-conatining formulations include Cidex, Sonacide, Sporicidin, Hospex, Omnicide, Metricide, Rapicide and Wavicide. These products have instructions and the time requirements on how to achieve sterilization through cold sterilization solutions.
