Bullard Hooded Powered Air Purifying Respirator, Model PA 30 Operating Instructions

 1. Complete the PAPR sign out form and leave form in the Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) office located in HSC, Level 1, Room 059.

 2. Inspect all parts – belt, blower, two battery packs, two magenta-colored filters, hood, white breathing tube, protective sleeve over breathing tube - for any visible damage. If any damage, do not use and contact EH&S.

 3. Prior to each use, verify adequate air flow by turning on blower (press black button on top) and placing the base of the airflow indicator tube on the top of the blower. The ball in the indicator tube must rise above the minimum air flow black line.  If not successful, do not use PAPR and contact EH&S for replacement battery and/or filter.   Turn off blower.     

 4. Ensure the hood is attached to the breathing tube and the other end of the breathing tube is attached to the blower unit. Write your name on the hood.

 5. Turn on blower. Buckle the belt around the waist and adjust belt as needed.  Don the hood.  If applicable, tuck inner cowl of the hood into scrubs/lab coat to reinforce seal.  Attach Velcro straps under the arms.  The blower remains outside of clothes, resting on the small of your back.  A cool stream of air should be felt inside the hood.

 6. Fully charged batteries should operate PAPR for 4-8 hours. If you hear an audible alarm, it is the low battery alarm and the batteries should be replaced.

 7. After each use, turn off blower. Between uses, clean exterior of the PAPR components and hood with hospital approved disinfection wipes (wear nitrile gloves) prior to placing back into carrying bag.  If hood is heavily soiled or damaged, discard and contact EH&S for a replacement. 

 8. Charged batteries, and replacement hoods, filters, protective sleeves are available in the EH&S office.

 9. Prior to returning PAPR to EH&S, use the disinfection wipes to clean the outer surfaces of the PAPR and discard the hood. Record date returned and length of time worn on sign out form in EH&S office.   Any questions, contact EH&S at 4-6783.                                                               Revised 3/23/20
