The instructions for use contain a detailed description of this
Is it normal for the connection tubing on the device to become very warm, even hot?
Yes, in short compressing air makes it hot so all nebuliser
compressors will generate a certain amount of heat during normal use.
The currently applicable standard DIN EN 60601-1 Part 1 for medical
electrical equipment defines requirements regarding maximum permissible
temperatures for electrically powered medical products. The
corresponding tests on our devices were conducted by an external,
accredited test laboratory.
All of our compressors meet the specifications of the standard cited above.
What must I do if my nebuliser does not generate an aerosol any more?
This may be due to any (or all) of the following:
Is the nozzle insert in the nebuliser is missing?
The nozzle may be blocked (also possible with the LC SPRINT family). Please check the nozzle first. If there are crystalline deposits (e.g. limescale residue) in the nozzle, it may be possible to remove them simply by squeezing the flexible nozzle with your thumb (however, this only works with the LC SPRINT nozzle because it is flexible). For more stubborn blockage, it often helps to clean the nozzle again by boiling the nebuliser. This is also possible for cleaning the LC PLUS Nebuliser nozzle. See instructions for use. Please note that the small holes must be poked through very carefully and only from the nozzle underside.
- Is there enough medication in the nebuliser? Make sure that the medication in the nebuliser reaches the fill mark. Minimum: 2ml, Maximum: 8ml.
