Nebulizer portion is accumulating what appears to be saliva
We are using the spider neb II and does the child need to keep the inhaller tube straight or can it slope down? It seems like saliva might be going down the tube back into the area holding the medicne, Is this possible? Sometimes the nebulizer doesn't deliver steam, does the internal parts of the neublizer need to be line up with some blue line in the unit. How long should this take with a vile of Pulmicort and Xoponex take for the treatment to be complete? Thank you
Wher can I find a user guide online for this nebulizer?

Well i have a inhaller tube to and yes it can be straight and it can slope down too. saliva no it's not possible but it could run down your cheek. or you could go and ask where ever you got the nebulizer from

This is common that these smaller units get warm when running for longer than five minutes at a time. I have never had a problem with it overheating though. If it would make you feel better the larger Pari units rarely get warm. The Pari LC plus neb kit may need replacing. This may fix the problem.
Please cancel this question, found the solution on the website for the high-flow concentrator, it is perfectly fine to use this large volume nebulizer with this unit, infact partially why it was invented. Advised my mistaken co-worker.
any "generic" nebulizer face mask will fit this nebulizer (except the Pari brand). There are different sizes so make sure get the correct size to fit you. Usual sizes are infant (child/pediatric) and adult. Usually ask the pharmacy to order if they don't stock it.
First when you turn on the neb is it running and putting out air
second is the circuit or medicine cup you have new?
if not replace if yes connect tubing to spout on neb, connect other end to bottom of cup open up and put medication inside ( you can do a trial run with water just to make sure its puffing before you waste meds.
put on mputhpiece turn on should puff out like steam if not you compressor may not be putting out enough air if over 5 years old insurance should help purchace a new one with a dr rx if not call company you got it from they usually have a 5 year warranty on them.
Hope this helps
No! don't buy a new machine. First wash the mask, tubes and any other washable part really well by hand. There could be some dryed on fluid blocking the flow of the liquid. Then make sure that the part where you put the liquid does not have liquid on top of the ******** part. Usually a bit of shaking off of the liquid or using a paper towel to dry that part off should help. If this doesn't work let the nebulizer dry out overnight with all parts seperate. I constantly have these kinds of problems with my nebulizer and these seem to do the trick if these don't work then you might need a new machine.
