Where do you load the inhalation solution?


You may have already figured this out by this time, but figured that others could have the same question. Here's a simplified explanation on how to assemble and use the nebulizer. I apologize if the explanation sounds patronizing. I'm not sure of what you may or may not understand about the nebulizer, so I'm explaining as though you don't understand it. I'd rather someone explain something in a patronizing way, than assume I have knowledge that I actually don't. At least with the former, it's easier for me to ensure my questions are answered. I also apologize for my ADHD. It often cause me to write much more than is necessary or overexplain things.

There should be two pieces that screw together to make the reservoir.

Piece #1 is the male side/bottom side and may or may not have a green cone inside. If not, there are still a plastic piece inside that forms a cone shape. This side should also have a small plastic cylinder shape on the bottom. This is where one side of the supply tube should be attached.

Piece #2 is the female side and has a larger cylinder shape on the top. When the piece is turned on its side, it sort of resembles a flashlight. This is what the breathing apparatus is attached to. You attach the tee adapter to the tube side of it. Then you attach the mouthpiece to whichever of the tee sides it fits best. Once this is all assembled, attach the other end of the supply tube to the nebulizer.

Now, back to your question. Open the reservoir, pour the solution into Piece #1, then screw Piece #2 back on. It should only take a second or two for the steam to begin flowing through the breathing apparatus once you turn the nebulizer on. Also make sure the the supply tube is attached securely to both the nebulizer and the reservoir so it doesn't pop off. Now you're ready to begin.

If you start coughing during treatment, that's fine. Don't remove it from your mouth or stop treatment. My mom was my son's pediatric nurse and trained us on its use. She said that if you start coughing during treatment, that actually helps you to inhale even more of the solution which is beneficial..

Nebulizer wing tip tubing is stuck


Searched Google today for this same problem - Vios nebulizer tubing is stuck to the compressor at the blue rubber wing end. I tried everything, including pliers, but today stuck a letter opener in and pried it off. Adding my comment for other people searching who land on this page!

Hi, I have a patient complaining that the tubing pops out when doing breathing treatment. What is the cause of that and how can we fix it? Thank you, Elizabeth


It sounds like she is breathing out too hard and the tube may be slightly stretchec and come off easily- try a new tube and tell her not breathe slower when she is exhaling

Respironics Side Stream Nebulizer tubing with condensation


try this...
let the compressor run with only the tubing attached for a few minutes. The warm air
from the compressor will dry the moisture or condensation in the tubing. Use a damp
cloth to wipe the exterior of the tubing.
hope this helps..good luck...

Sterlize my nebulizer


From Pari.com:
What is the best way to clean and disinfect my PARI Nebulizer?

Cleaning: After every treatment, thoroughly rinse the nebulizer to remove medication. Hand-wash with warm water and dish soap. Rinse thoroughly. OR... Wash in the dishwasher using a dishwasher basket on the top rack.

Disinfecting: (done after cleaning) every 2nd treatment day, mix a solution of 1 part distilled white vinegar and 3 parts warm tap water in a clean bowl. Soak the nebulizer parts (except the tubing and mask) for 60 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. OR... Mix a solution using Control III® Nebulizer Disinfectant and soak for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. OR... Boil the nebulizer parts for 10 minutes.

Omron nebulizer will not mist. All tubing is intact. What to do?


You'll read a lot about making sure that the filter is clean and that the medicine cup is cleaned and that hard water can effect the operation of the nebulizer. However, the problem is most likely in the pump. Even though the pump is running, it is not pushing enough air into the medicine cup. You may even feel air coming out of the tube. When unrestricted, the air will come out, but, once restricted by the medicine cup, the air may not be fast enough to nebulize the liquid. If you want to confirm this, take the tube and hold it to the end of a bike pump, if, while pumpung, you successfully see mist, then you know for sure.

Fixing the pump is not too difficult. Over time, the chamber where the air is compressed becomes dry and, just like a dry bike pump, the air escapes from the chamber due to poor seals. The pump is pretty simple. Make sure it is unplugged from power and remove the screws holding the housing together. Inside you will see the motor, a fan, a power switch and the intake and outtake tubes. Follow the outtake tube to the pump. The junction where the tubes meet the pump is the location of the air chamber. You may need to remove the screws that secure the tubes to the chamber. Once apart, take some grease and lightly coat all of the interior surfaces of the chamber. When finished, reassemble and you're good to go!

Nebulizers question


Nebulizers deliver aerosolized liquid medicine by a facemask or mouthpiece. Successful nebulizer therapy does not depend on significant patient cooperation or coordination. This is useful in the treatment of pediatric asthma, and the NIH recognizes the nebulizer as an effective delivery device for young children.
