To make the most of your ProNebu portable nebulizer, you need to understand how to use it correctly. If you are struggling with using your nebulizer, you are in the right place. Here is a complete step-by-step guide to help you use the nebulizer in no time.
Assembling The Air Compressor And Nebulizer
The first and foremost thing you need to do is assemble the air compressor and nebulizer for use. To do this, you need to place the compressor where it can easily reach the power source, and you can quickly turn it on or off. After that, you need to wash your hands to prepare for each nebulizer treatment.
Take out your nebulizer and measure the correct dose of solutions and medications as prescribed by your doctor. You need to add these to the nebulizer and connect the air tube from the compressor to the base. After that, you need to attach the mouthpiece to the nebulizer.
Taking The Nebulizer Treatment
Once you have assembled it and everything is in order, you need to put the mouthpiece between your teeth and close the lips around it. While doing this, you need to ensure the nebulizer is in an upright position. Doing this will promote the nebulizer process and prevent spillage.
You should breathe in and out deeply during your treatment to allow the medication to go inside your airways. You can also occasionally tap on the nebulizer to help the solution drop where it needs to be misted. Keep continuing these steps till the medication is empty.
After-Care Of The Nebulizer Equipment
The after-care of the nebulizer is just as critical as using the nebulizer. If you don’t clean it thoroughly, it will not give you effective results for what you are treating. The best way is to follow the instruction manual of the nebulizer to clean it perfectly.
However, it is suggested to take apart the nebulizer and wash all the parts except the finger valve and tubing in water and liquid dish soap. After that, you should rinse the parts with water. Once you have done that, you need to shake any excess water from the equipment.
Once you are done washing, you should reattach the nebulizer pieces and tube to the air compressor. Turn on the air compressor to dry out the nebulizer. Before you store the nebulizer away, you have to check if it is completely dry.
