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.

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.

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!
