STEP 1: Select the correct adapter (i.e., largest adapter that provides complete seal when applied to chest area). Screw adapter onto transducer.
WARNING: Always make sure there is an adapter on the transducer before pushing START button. Do not substitute or modify the adapters supplied by Dymedso; it could seriously damage the transducer.
STEP 2: Patient should be in a sitting or in a slightly reclined position.
STEP 3: Push power switch on the back of the Frequencer™ to turn on device. By default, frequency level is set at 40 Hz and treatment intensity at 50%.
STEP 4: Before starting treatment, reset treatment intensity to better suit patient’s size and condition.
STEP 5: Place transducer on chest wall over light clothing and press START.
STEP 6: Adjust frequency level one Hz at a time until vibration is felt on back or other part of chest cavity. At the right frequency level, there should be a light vibration in patient's voice when transducers are applied to the upper lobes. a. Frequency level will most likely be within a 40-50Hz range. b. If patient is able to huff or actively breathe, it may assist with airway clearance.
STEP 7: Apply transducer to the six areas for 2-3 minutes each. Starting in the lower right and left lobe and working upward on each side. If treatment needs to be suspended, PAUSE will hold treatment until START is pressed again.
STEP 8: Do not apply any pressure on the transducer when applied to the chest. Simply support transducer while assuring complete seal. Transducer is much easier to support while patient is in a slightly reclined position.
STEP 9: After treatment push PAUSE button and turn power switch off before unplugging.
CAUTION: ALWAYS FOLLOW THE PHYSICIAN’S INSTRUCTIONS. NEVER USE THIS DEVICE ON THE HEAD OR EARS.
