Using a nebulizer is easy. Find a comfortable place to take your treatment. No special breathing technique is required, just sit back and breathe normally. The time it takes to complete your nebulizer treatment varies for each person.
A nebulizer is a small medical device that turns liquid medication into a fine aerosol mist that makes it easy to inhale into the lungs to treat a variety of respiratory conditions.
Be sure to read the instructions for use that come with your nebulizer system. These instructions provide important information on how to correctly assemble and care for your nebulizer system to keep it working properly.
After you've cleaned and disinfected your nebulizer, assembled it correctly, and have attached the tubing to the compressor, you are ready to begin your treatment.
Nebulization time is different for each person and depends on several factors, such as a person's breathing pattern, the type of medication, and the amount of medication that needs to be nebulized.
For example, it will take longer to nebulize 4mL of solution than 2.5mL. Also, because PARI's nebulizers are "breath-enhanced" a person that has the ability to take deeper breaths or breathes at a faster rate may have a shorter nebulization time than a person that has slower or more shallow breathing.
1Tested with a 1.2 bar compressor. Measured with Malvern MasterSizer X at 50% relative humidity, 0.9% NaCl solution, inspiratory flow 20 liters/minute, continuous nebulization, 23° C, fill volume 2.5 ml.
