Best describe how the crewmembers handled the use of portable oxygen concentrators (POC) aboard the aircraft during movement on the surface, takeoff and landing, including:

      #1 The device was stowed under the seat in front of the user, or in another approved stowage location so that the device does not block the aisle way or the entryway to the row;
      #2 If the POC was operated by the user, the device and attached tubing used to dispense oxygen from the POC to the user’s mask/nasal cannula must only be stowed at a seat location that does not restrict any access to, or use of, any required emergency or regular exit, or the aisle(s) in the passenger compartment; and
      #3 The stowage location allowed the user or his/her attendant to see the warning lights and/or hear the audible warning while in use?

REFERENCES: AC-120-95, 135.91(f)

NOTE:  A POC and the additional batteries required to power the POC during flight are exempt from the carry-on baggage count. Reference Sec 382.121 for requirements pertaining to assistive devices. Responses to DCT questions should be directly observed. If during surveillance the ASI is unable to directly observe a process, then the ASI may address the response verbally through a discussion with the certificate holder’s or applicant’s personnel. When this occurs, the ASI should document in the Supporting Comment field that the data was collected through discussion in lieu of observation.
