Aerosol therapy by nebulizer is an effective treatment for a wide range of respiratory conditions.
PARI nebulizers do not require a special breathing technique or method. This is particularly beneficial for children, people with limited hand mobility, or the elderly. Many patients think that one has to breathe in quickly and forcefully when using an inhalation device. This only applies to the use of dry-powder inhalers. When using a metered dose inhaler, you have to coordinate your breath when you press down on the inhaler, otherwise the drug may not reach your lungs. Nebulizer therapy is easier: Sit up straight and relaxed. Breathe in and out calmly. Ideally, breathe as you would normally. This way more medication reaches your lungs, where it is needed.
The PARI PEP systems also help with your respiratory health. ACT helps clear the airways of any mucus that is difficult or impossible to clear with normal coughing. The various PARI PEP systems can be easily attached to the PARI nebulizer, so that inhalation therapy and PEP treatments can be performed at the same time. How does it work? The resistance of the PEP systems generates counter pressure when you exhale. This allows more medication to enter your peripheral airways when you are inhaling. It is easier to cough up mucus and to exhale more air out of your lungs. With the PARI O-PEP, the vibrations created in the O-PEP when you breathe out loosen even thick mucus from the bronchial walls so it is easier to cough up.
