What is the difference between a mesh and a compressor nebuliser?
All nebulisers are devices that convert liquid medicine into aerosol droplets that can be easily inhaled through a mouthpiece or mask. The difference is in the technique that is used to convert the medicine into aerosol droplets. A compressor nebuliser uses compressed air to create the aerosol.
A mesh nebuliser uses a vibrating element oscillating at high frequency to push medication through fine holes in the mesh, generating aerosol droplets. This technique allows the nebuliser to be very compact and silent. It makes them easy to use on-the-go, whenever and wherever you need it.
What type of medication can be used with a nebuliser?
Most medications for the treatment of respiratory diseases of the upper, middle and lower airways are available on a liquid form and can therefore be used with a nebuliser. Nebulisers also allow mixing different medications in the nebuliser chamber, so that they can be inhaled at the same time for a higher convenience.
What parts of the nebuliser should I clean and how often?
Depending on the type of nebuliser, the nebuliser can contain several pieces:
• The main unit or compressor
• The nebuliser kit where the medication is added
• The tube that connects the main unit with the nebuliser kit
• Mesh cap
• Mouth piece to inhale medication through the mouth
• Nose piece to inhale medication through the nose
• Air filter
Note: Always refer to the cleaning instructions as included in the instruction manual of the nebuliser.
It is recommended to clean the nebuliser kit, mouth piece, nose piece and mask after each use (but necessary after every day of formal use). They can be washed with warm water and a mild detergent. Then, you should rinse them thoroughly with clean hot tap water and allow to air dry in a clean place.
Disinfection should be done once a week. This can be done by boiling these parts for approximately 10 minutes except for PVC parts (some masks and tubes) which can harden and deform when this is done. Alternatively, use commercially available disinfectant. Thoroughly rinse with clean water after disinfection; follow the instructions given by the supplier of the disinfectant.
The casing of main unit and the tube do not require extensive cleaning, but can of course be cleaned using a soft cloth with water and a mild detergent. Wipe the casing and immediately dry using a soft clean cloth.
The air filter should not be washed. In case it was to become wet it should be replaced to avoid blockages.
Specifically, for a mesh nebuliser: the mesh cap should be cleaned after each use:
• Fill the medication container with water and nebulise the water. To prevent medication from drying and adhering to the mesh after use, nebulise the water for 1 to 2 minutes.
• Then wash the mesh cap in mild (neutral) detergent, and rinse with clean water. Allow to air-dry in a clean place.
How often do I need to replace the different parts and where can I buy them?
For most nebulisers, it is recommended to replace the nebuliser kit, the mouth and nose piece, masks and tube every year. Air filters should be replaced approximately every 60 days. Specifically, for the mesh nebuliser, it is recommended to exchange the mesh cap after approximately 1 year.
As of which age can a nebuliser be used?
Nebulisers are appropriate for the use of babies and children.
