INFLATION SYSTEMS Manual or Automatic Inflation Mechanism located on your upper right with a Co2 24g gas cylinder and pull tab. The pull to inflate tab is used to manually activate the inflation mechanism & inflate the PFD, Oral inflator located on your upper left hand side of rash shirt. WARNING THIS IS NOT A PFD UNTILL FULLY INFLATED RE-ARMING KIT & INDICATORS Unpack or open EVIE so that the manual inflator is visible, remove Co2 gas cylinder by firmly turning cylinder anti-clockwise & discard if discharged.
Rotate activation lever to closed position & snap green re-arm indicator clip over lanyard. Check new 24g gas cylinder to ensure face is not punctured, corroded or damaged, install new cylinder by engaging thread & turning clockwise do not over tighten. WARNING GAS CYLINDERS ARE DANGEROUS GOODS AND MUST BE KEPT AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND NOT MISUSED. Co2 Cylinders are only good for one inflation & cannot be recharged, they are also coated with a protective coating that may wear off after a period of use or exposure to the environment, if this occurs & rusting appears replace the Co2 Cylinder. Premature activation may occur if not properly rearmed the inflator mechanism before installing Co2 Cylinder. Co2 gas Cylinder has imprinted minimum weight if & when possible use gram scales to verify this for confirmation. Manual Inflation Mechanism Manual Inflator UML-5 The Mini Manual lifejacket inflator is a small, strong, lightweight product used in both commercial and leisure applications that benefit from trouble free maintenance. The unit is manually activated with the minimum pull force required to initiate jacket inflation. This product is also approved in accordance with the CEN standard requirements for lifejackets. Automatic Inflation Mechanism MK5 Auto Inflator The MK5 lifejacket inflator is a robust, compact unit used in leisure and commercial activities. The unit offers both manual and automatic inflation facilities, with dual status indication confirming that the inflator has been activated. The product is approved in accordance with the CEN standard requirement for lifejackets. On entering the water, automatic activation of the unit usually takes less than 2 seconds and the re-charging procedure is quick and simple. The units are available on demand, with re-charge kits being stocked by most distributors of marine products. OTHER USE GUIDELINES Avoid all unnecessary activities that will be abrasive or harmful to this device. Always wear your PFD when boating Always fold arms across your chest when jumping into water keeping the PFD in place. Do not use as a cushion. Do not use around sharp objects and use extreme caution. Avoid unnecessary exposure to sunlight. Inflatable PFDâ€™s are not designed for high speed water impact or white water activities such as water skiing, riding personal watercraft etc.
Co2 24g gas cylinder may permeate through the chamber fabric over time and may be necessary to top up inflatable orally by blowing air in through the oral tube.
INFLATING INSTRUCTIONS ORAL INFLATION The oral tube is located on the wearerâ€™s top left side. Grasp the oral tube & bring to mouth remove dust cap blow air through the oral tube until the inflatable chamber is firm. It is good practice to remove Co2 gas cylinder prior to orally inflating for testing purposes only. Always replace oral inflator dust cap after usage. WARNING do not fully inflate orally then manually inflate with Co2 cylinder, this will damage the PFD. Never inflate PFD with a pump or air-compressor. Permeation loss is greater when inflated with Co2 than with air & may need to be replenished by means of oral inflation after several hours. MANUAL INFLATION To inflate grasp the inflate tab and pull sharply in a downward motion. WARNING may permeate through the chamber fabric over time and may be necessary to top up inflatable orally by blowing air in through the oral tube. AUTOMATIC INFLATION EVIE will deplore once submerged in water after approximately two seconds. WARNING if EVIE does not deplore orally inflate. DEFLATION Depress oral valve located inside oral tube either by using dust cap upturned and inserting or placing small finger on oral valve until air is released. WARNING if for any reason the oral valve remains open depress several times if it does not release DO NOT USE. If in an emergency and oral valve has
not closed place thumb over opening or bend tube to compress & stop air escaping. Do not twist or scrunch PFD to expel air, this may damage PFD. DONNING INSTRUCTIONS Make sure you select the appropriate size. Pull on rash shirt & feel the bladder through the shirt, adjust if necessary for comfort. Locate strap and buckle under front of PFD and secure Locate oral and manual inflator using both hands in case of emergency. Do not wear under bulky clothing as it may affect the ability of the PFD. Test PFD by inflating using the oral inflator tube. WARNING if a leak is detected or PFD wonâ€™t orally inflate DO NOT USE. This PFD is not designed to be donned whilst inflated, deflate first using deflation instructions. REMOVING Removal of PFD is best when bent forward and rash shirt pulled from back of neck over head, Warning do not remove when in deep water.

CARE & CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS DO NOT MACHINE WASH DO NOT MACHINE DRY DO NOT DRY CLEAN DO NOT USE SOLVENT BASED CLEANERS DO NOT BLEACH DO NOT DRY IN FRONT OF DIRECT HEAT SOURCE EG: RADIATOR ETC DO NOT STORE WET DO NOT LEAVE IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT FOR LONG PERIODS
If this PFD is wet place on coat hanger and allow to dry thoroughly, do not place in direct sunlight or use any heating device. Ensure your PFD is fully dry before storing & store in a clean cool dry place, do not store in direct sunlight. If garment dirty use a mild detergent and gently rub rinse thoroughly with cold running tap water. ALWAYS INSPECT YOUR EVIE BEFORE USE Make sure your PFD is free from tares, rips, punctures or loose seams, this type of damage on the exterior indicates that the inflator chamber may be damaged. WARNING do not use if you can see the inflatable chamber through tears, holes or abrasions of the rash shirt. Check that the PFD inflates orally and that all mechanisms function before use. CARE, MAINTENANCE & MECHANISM INSPECTION Before each outing examine outer & inner garment, seems & fabric thoroughly, check for strength by pulling seems and attachments snugly. If any signs of damage do not use. Check the buoyancy chamber by orally inflating air into inflation valve, if chamber does not stay inflated do not use. Every two months orally inflate your PFD buoyancy chamber and leave for approximately 7 hrs, if buoyancy chamber remains firm and full of air there is no leakage and chamber is operational, however if buoyancy chamber does not stay inflated do not use. Check that the oral valve by inflating PFD then using the oral valve cap deflate chamber after this the oral valve should automatically return to the closed position if oral valve does not return to closed position refer to DEFLATION instructions and avoid use until rectified. WARNING do not poke foreign objects into inflator valve. The reliability of this PFD depends on care & usage, avoid using around sharp objects, storing when wet or leaving in direct sunlight. Always rinse thoroughly with cold running tap water extracting any foreign materials such as sand, salt etc, hang to dry and only store when fully dried. Always perform the service checks before and after use. Prolonged exposure to the elements may shorten the service life of this PFD.

RE-ARMING KITS Re-arming kits are available from your PFD reseller, Inflatable Rashi Pty Ltd or an Inflatable Rash Shirt repair facility. Re-arming kits comprise of for manual mechanism a fully charged 24g Co2 cylinder & green re-arm clip and for automatic, a fully charged 24g Co2 cylinder an automatic cartridge with green indicator on and a manual green indicator. KNOW YOUR EVIE - INFLATABLE RASHIE (train yourself in the use of this device) Test your PFD in the water make sure it floats you and fits comfortably there should be no signs of bubbling, your PFD should inflate quickly & easily. Learn how to activate, re-arm & inflate using the oral inflator as well as deflating. Pull on & pull off rash shirt until you feel comfortable. Test your PFD by activating the inflation system by pulling firmly in a downward motion the pull tab, tour PFD should fully inflate within 5 seconds. Test your PFD by placing yourself in shallow water and see if it will float you with your head above water & tilted slightly back of vertical. Once your PFD has passed your tests remove gas cylinder & re-arm your PFD with fully charged re-arm kit and allow drying before storage. Testing your PFD orally does not require spare parts or re-arming kit. Remove Co2 cylinder to avoid inadvertent activation place yourself in just deep enough water to test, fully inflate PFD using the oral inflator & test PFD to see if it will allow you to float on your back or just slightly back of vertical your mouth should be well above the water. Once satisfied with your PFD remove yourself from water & completely deflate using oral inflator dust cap, remove PFD of person & hang to dry out of direct sunlight & store in cool dry place. WARNING failure to follow these instructions may result in a non-functioning PFD causing INJURY or DEATH PFD’s PFD’s are personal floatation devices. They are designed to keep a person in a relatively upright position to allow the person to breathe & not to have to tread water to stay afloat. They can be either closed cell foam jackets or inflatable jackets. In Australia, they are classified into 3 Categories. Type 1 PFD’s are intended to be used in water activities where early rescue may be expected. The outer fabric of Type 1 must be of safety colours. Type 2 & 3 PFD’s with the same buoyancy requirements but are lower than PFD Type 1, are intended to provide flotation for short term immersion in sheltered water during daylight hours. The upper portion of the PFD Type 2 must be of safety colours. However there are no safety colours requirements for PFD Type 3 and are to be used in supervised situations.
Although PFD’s are meant to be used in sheltered waters & are intended to keep you afloat until help arrives, they may not be suitable for all situations. PFD’s may not react the same way in rough situations as in calm waters. For children wearing PFD’s, it is very important that they come under constant competent supervision. As for the category of PFD to use, please check with your relevant marine authorities regarding regulations covering your chosen water activity. Make sure it is an approved product. Complies & meet does not mean approved. Look at the design of the PFD from the aspect of how it is going to float you when you are knocked unconscious. Be aware that your centre gravity changes and you are more likely to float face down. A good design PFD will turn you over to face upwards at an inclined angle. Try on the PFD to ensure that it fits properly and is comfortable on you. Note that PFD’s are meant to be worn over the duration of your activity. The weight of the PFD is important to determine the comfort factor. Wear the PFD according to the instructions given, test it in water to ascertain how it performs because an approved PFD does not mean it will perform well for you. Likewise as highlighted earlier that all PFD’s will provide the Upward Lift to float an adult but that does not mean that all of them will float you in a safe position. It is important to look at the design of the PFD and the type of fabric used. Relax your body to allow the PFD to perform, make sure that your PFD offers you maximum performance in water in that it keeps your chin above water & you can breathe easily. If your mouth is not well above the water, then you have to get a new PFD (better design) that can meet the above requirements or one with more buoyancy and a better design. Inflatables Generally most inflatable PFD’s for adults provide a buoyancy of 150 Newton’s i.e. approximately 15kg of upward lift. They will float any adults without carrying Additional dead weights. How an adult float in the water depends on the design of the PFD. The inflatable PFD’s come either in Oral & Manual inflation or Oral & automatic inflation. There are pros & cons in either of the system. With the former (Oral & Manual inflation), if a person is unconscious upon impact in water, the PFD will not provide him with any assistance. However, if a person has an automatic
inflation PFD, contact with water will activate the mechanism and the PFD will inflate & support the person’s head above water. The downside with automatic is that the inflation system will activate whenever the mechanism is in contact with water. Both automatic and manual inflation systems are operated with a CO2 disposable cartridge or cylinder. With manual, the system is activated by pulling the cord with a knob in a downward motion. The action will trigger off the system. However with automatic, simply immersing in water will inflate the PFD. Each time the PFD is inflated, the cartridge needs to be replaced with a new one. For the automatic version, the water dissolving capsule in the mechanism also needs to be replaced. To deflate the PFD, just gently depress the tip of the mouth tube & press the bladder against your body. This action will reduce the volume of the bladder of your PFD. Inflatable PFD’s are not recommended for non swimmers unless worn inflated and not recommended for use where water impact is expected such as skiing, white water rafting & personal water use. However they are recommended for use in offshore cruising, racing and fishing. Inflatable PFD’s require more frequent maintenance than inherently buoyant PFD’s. With children, parents need to do the following Teach your children (where appropriate) on how to put on their PFD’s & test their PFD’s in shallow water to see how the PFD’s perform in water. In a family situation, mark each jacket with a person’s name or where applicable differentiate them by PFD’s colours. Supervision is very important & necessary. A PFD is not substitute for competent and vigilant adult supervision of children in and around water. Children because their body weights are distributed differently, are prone to float differently to adults. Before each family boating excursion, check the condition of the PFD’s for deterioration, leaks etc. Repair or replace them where applicable. It’s recommended that repairs be performed by qualified technician. Check the weights of your children to ascertain whether they have out grown the expressed weight classifications of their current PFD’s.
Maintenance & Storage For inflatable PFD’s, it is recommended that they are being serviced frequently. For all types of PFD’s, do not use harsh detergents or solvent to clean them. Store them in an area with good ventilation. If wet, allow it to dry in open air before storing. Useful hints for an inflatable PFD. Check whether it is an approved PFD. Wear the PFD to ascertain whether it provides the comfort & mobility you require. Remember that you have to wear it for the duration of your activity. Hence, the weight of PFD on your shoulder and around the neck is an important factor for comfort. The lighter PFD will provide better comfort. Open up the valise of the PFD to look at the bladder design. The volume distribution of the front & head of the bladder may provide you with an idea which way the PFD will float you. Check the thickness of the Polyurethane coating on the bladder and also the width of the weld bar used. Check whether the brand will provide after sale technical support. Check whether the PFD you intend to purchase is service & repair friendly. In many cases, a repair may cost as much as a new PFD.

Hypothermia Hypothermia occurs when the body’s temperature falls below 35C. The human body has a number of systems that maintain a constant core temperature of around 37C. A person doesn’t have to be in subzero temperatures to risk hypothermia – it often happens in temperatures ranging from 0–10C. A person can also become hypothermic as a result of some medical conditions. Some situations can cause the body to lose more heat than it can generate. These situations can include: • Prolonged exposure to cold conditions • Being in cold water for a long time • Spending excessive time in wet clothes.
Signs and symptoms The first warning sign of hypothermia is uncontrollable shivering. The person stops shivering as they progress into severe hypothermia. Coma occurs when the body’s temperature falls below 32C. Once the brain cools to around 30C, the structure that regulates body temperature (hypothalamus) stops working. The person’s breathing slows and the lack of oxygen to the heart causes it to beat inefficiently. This is known as ventricular fibrillation. The heart can no longer pump blood and the body is starved of oxygen. This is fatal without prompt treatment. Stages of symptoms The symptoms of hypothermia can progress slowly and people are often not aware they need medical help. The stages can include: • Feeling cold • Cool, pale skin • Shivering • Loss of concentration, poor judgment • Loss of control over fine motor coordination – for example, the muscles of the fingers • Drowsiness • Lethargy • Confusion, irritability • Dizziness • Difficulty breathing • Loss of physical coordination, unsteady on feet • Stops shivering eventually • Slurred speech, speech difficulty • Slowed breathing • Dilated pupils • Coma • Death. Risk factors Factors that may increase a person’s susceptibility to hypothermia include: • Infancy – children lose heat more quickly than adults, mostly through their head • Old age – people taking medications or suffering other health problems may be less able to regulate their own body heat • Heart problems • Circulatory system disorders • A thin body or low body fat • Hunger • Fatigue • Alcohol
• • • •
Cigarette smoking Drugs Dehydration Physical exertion.
Severe hypothermia is life threatening Mild hypothermia (32–35°C body temperature) is usually easy to treat. However, the risk of death increases as the core body temperature drops below 32C. If core body temperature is less than 28C, the condition is life threatening without immediate medical attention. Under this temperature, a person will be very cold to touch, unresponsive, rigid, not breathing and will not have a pulse, and their pupils will be fixed (they will not respond to light changes). They will appear dead but they may not be. First aid for severe hypothermia First aid steps for severe hypothermia include: • Dial triple zero (000) or call for emergency medical assistance immediately. • While waiting for help to arrive, monitor the person’s breathing. If they have severe hypothermia, their breathing may become dangerously slow or shallow or they may cease breathing. • Begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) immediately if the person shows no signs of life – is not breathing normally, is unconscious or unresponsive, or is not moving. Never assume a person is dead. A person with severe hypothermia may only take one breath per minute, with a heart rate of less than 20 beats per minute. Always assume they are alive. First aid for all cases of hypothermia These first aid tips apply to all stages of hypothermia: • Don’t massage or rub the person – and do not allow them to help you. Keep them still or they risk a heart attack. If they move, the muscular activity will pump cold blood from their arms and legs into the central circulation and cause their core temperature to drop even more. • Move the person out of the cold – if this is not possible, protect them from wind, cover their head and insulate their body from the cold ground. • Remove wet clothing – replace with a dry covering, preferably warm. Cover the person’s head. • Try to warm the person – but do not apply direct heat. Apply warm compresses to the neck, chest wall and groin. Do not use hot water, a heating pad or a heating lamp to warm the person. Do not attempt to warm the arms and legs –this will send cold blood back to the heart, causing body temperature to drop further. • Share body heat – to warm the person’s body, remove your clothing and lie next to the person, making skin-to-skin contact. Then cover both
• • • •
bodies with a blanket or get into a sleeping bag if possible. Don’t give alcohol – it lowers the body’s ability to retain heat. If the person is alert and is able to swallow, have them drink warm, non-alcoholic beverages. Do not offer liquids if vomiting. Do not leave the person alone – stay with them at all times. Continually monitor breathing – if the person’s breathing stops, start cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) immediately if you are trained. If unsure, dial triple zero (000) – operators will assist in what to do. Continue CPR until the person starts breathing on their own or until medical assistance arrives. Don’t assume the person is dead – CPR can be lifesaving for a person with severe hypothermia who may appear to be dead. They may not be breathing, have no pulse, be cold to touch, have fixed pupils and be rigid – but they may still be alive.
Preventing hypothermia when outdoors Exposure to cold weather, even for a short time, can be dangerous if you are not prepared. Shivering and feeling cold or numb are warning signs that the body is losing too much heat. Simple ways to prevent hypothermia include: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
Avoid prolonged exposure to cold weather. Be alert to weather conditions that may increase the risk of hypothermia and act accordingly, for example, seek shelter during a snowstorm. Wear several layers of clothing to trap body heat, rather than just one bulky layer. Natural fibres like wool are better at holding heat. Use a weatherproof outer layer to stay dry. Use gloves, scarves and socks, with spares to replace when wet. Wear insulated boots. Wear warm headgear – a lot of body heat is lost through the scalp. Make sure your clothes and boots aren’t too tight. If your blood circulation is restricted, you are more prone to hypothermia. Drink plenty of fluids. Eat regularly. Take regular breaks to reduce the risk of physical fatigue. Keep your eye on exact body temperature by taking a clinical thermometer in your first aid kit. Change out of wet clothes straight away. Avoid alcohol, cigarettes and caffeine. Make sure your kit includes a good supply of waterproof matches.
Use a buddy system When participating in any outdoor activity that has the potential risk of hypothermia, such as bushwalking or mountaineering, use the ‘buddy system’ and check each other for signs. You may not be able to recognise your own
symptoms of hypothermia due to mental confusion. First aid training is strongly advised. Hypothermia at home Hypothermia can occur in the home. Some people with medical conditions or the elderly are more susceptible to hypothermia. The risk can be reduced by: • Ensuring there is adequate heat in the home • Seeking assistance from government agencies for help with heating, food and clothing if necessary • Having regular medical check-ups. Where to get help • In an emergency, call triple zero (000) • Your local doctor • The emergency department of your nearest hospital. Things to remember • Hypothermia occurs when the body’s temperature falls below 35C. • Hypothermia often happens in temperatures ranging from 0–10C. • Severe hypothermia is life threatening without prompt medical attention.
