What makes an effective nebuliser?

The nebuliser chamber makes all the difference. This is the parameter to which you should pay particular attention.

How much medication is delivered

With nebuliser therapy, the amount of medication that reaches the lungs is the key factor. This requires nebulisers that can produce sufficiently fine aerosol droplets in as short a time as possible.

  • The nebuliser produces fine droplets, i.e. the aerosol, from the inhalation solution consisting of the medication or other active substances. These droplets have to be relatively small so they can reach the lungs.
  • PARI nebuliser devices score particularly well in the amount of aerosol reaching the lungs, within a given time.
  • Therefore it is important to check the quality of your nebuliser, because this affects the success of your therapy.

PARI nebulisers are known as the gold standard

PARI nebulisers are often recommended in the package inserts of medications for inhalation. Thanks to their world-wide availability and high quality, PARI nebulisers are often used in clinical studies of medications. One factor for the effectiveness of the nebuliser is particularly important: the RDDR, which stands for Respirable Drug Delivery Rate. This describes the amount of respirable medication generated by the nebuliser and inhalation device per minute, and therefore the amount of the medication available to the person using the product. It is important to note that only aerosols that are smaller than 5 µm (microns) are defined as respirable in medical terms and can therefore reach the lungs. Larger droplets may, for example, remain stuck in the throat before they reach the lungs.

Of course, there are also other factors that determine how much aerosol actually reaches the lungs. For example, how patient the adult or child is when nebulising and whether a mouthpiece or mask is used.

PARI nebulisers achieve top rankings

PARI nebulisers have come out top in various comparative studies with commercially available nebulisers for children and adults.1,2

Summary: Nebulisers with a high RDDR are beneficial for you as a patient. They save precious time with short nebulisation times, while delivering high doses of the medication.
