SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: nebulizers problem

There are two main types of nebulizers: jet and ultrasonic devices. Jet nebulizers form droplets by using a compressor to deliver a pressurized jet stream of air down a narrow tube and through an opening. This creates a vacuum (through the Venturi effect), thus drawing liquid from a reservoir. The resultant small droplets of liquid are propelled out of the machine by the continued jet stream. Ultrasonic nebulizers produce aerosolized droplets using high-frequency sound waves generated by a special crystal. Liquid drug is usually delivered to the crystal, where it forms a thin layer. Electricity excites the crystals, causing them to vibrate at extremely high frequency. This vibration forces the thin liquid layer through an adjacent mesh, creating a fine mist. Droplet size varies with the frequency of the sound waves created by the vibrating crystals.

SOURCE: spider nebulizer 2.how to piece together

The long tubing should have a green end and a blue end. (If both ends are the same it does'nt matter) Now the little cup that holds the medication...look at the bottom of the cup. It should have a male connector (blue or green) take the end of the tubing that matches the color of the male connection and firmly plug them together. Hold the chamber/cup upright. If your unit has a little plastic diffusor, drop that inside the chamber. now locate the top af the chamber and screw it on. You should have a large whole the size of a nickle on top. This is where you squeeze the medication in. After putting in the medication put the mask(or mouthpeice) Firmly into the place where you put the medication into....and your peices should be assembled. Last thing is to plug the other end of the tubing into the machine itself and then turn on the power.

SOURCE: 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!

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..

My nebulizer is not making fumes


Try this. Begin by disconnecting each end of the tube from the bottom of the nebulizer running water through it. This will help dislodge andy blockages.

Turn the top of the cup and lift it off. This will expose the cup baffle. Take the baffle and the cone out of the cup. Rinse it with warm water and dish soap to remove clogged medicne.

Wash out the cup by soaking it in warm, soapy water. Rince out the cup until all of the soap is gone, and make sure water is flowing through the cup openings.

Reattach the hose to the output port on the nebulizer and make sure you have a good connection. Put the loose end of the hose onto the bottom of the cup and reassemble. Make sure you put your medicine in before you reassemble the cover.

If this doesn't work, make sure you have power running to the device. Check all of your connects and try a different outlet.

Parts on the Pink car Nebulizer


The funnel is called a "diffuser". It just sets inside the measuring cup and will gently vibrate during a treatment to ensure all the medication runs off the sides the cup to be atomized. You can also ask your family Dr. to review the set up with you if you are concerned that you are not using it right.
