Using a nebuliser is easy. All you have to do is ensure you are breathing calmly and are sitting comfortably.
When inhaling with a jet or membrane nebuliser, a saline solution is transformed into a fine ‘mist’. The aerosol reaches deep into the airways, unlike the ‘steam’ method with a cooking pot, where the water just evaporates. The PARI SINUS2 produces a pulsation which helps the “mist” to reach into the sinuses. Persistent mucous are moistened and are easier to transport out of the lungs and airways. Dried mucous and scabs are softened and detach. The circulation in the mucosal membranes is also increased when you inhale properly with a nebuliser. For the sinuses, circulation is also boosted with the pulsating bursts of pressure produced by the PARI SINUS2.
When the nebuliser device is assembled correctly and plugged into the mains, you can start with the treatment. But have you washed your hands thoroughly to ensure they are free from germs and bacteria? Then you can pour the inhalation solution into the nebuliser. Position yourself upright in front of the device, but make sure you are still comfortable and relaxed. Now switch on the device. Firmly clamp the mouthpiece between your teeth and seal with your lips. You should check masks to ensure they are properly positioned, especially in children and the elderly.
If you use a jet nebuliser, such as the PARI BOY Classic or our membrane nebuliser, the VELOX, the aerosol flows from a mask or mouthpiece. You should take calm breaths to avoid droplets getting deposited in your throat. Tip: Taking a brief pause helps a good lung deposition. This is why nebulisers such as the PARI LC SPRINT have an integrated feedback system. The PIF-control system closes an inspiratory valve if you breathe in too quickly, and you will feel a slight resistance. This is a good sign to breathe out and then breathe in slower with the next breath.
It takes about five minutes to inhale 2.5 millilitres of inhalation solution properly with the PARI BOY Classic. With the VELOX it only takes about three minutes for the same amount. However, the treatment time essentially depends on a range of factors, such as the performance of the device, the nebuliser, the volume and type of solution you would like to inhale and your ability to breathe in deeply
