Breathing may be the most natural thing, yet it does not come easy to everyone. Many people suffer from breathing issues that require respiratory therapy, both in a clinical setting and at home. We, humans, need to take in oxygen in order to survive and many disorders like asthma and COPD make it very difficult to fill our lungs with air. In order to treat any long-term issue, your doctor may prescribe the use of a nebulizer in order to keep your airways clear and keep you breathing freely. The Pari Trek S Portable Compressor Nebulizer Aerosol System includes everything necessary to make any respiratory therapy simple and easy to use.


How do Pari Trek Nebulizers work?

If your doctor has prescribed medication to treat your asthma or COPD, there is a good chance it is in a liquid form and needs to be inhaled. How do we achieve this? A nebulizer uses a compressor to create pressurized air to transform your liquid medication into an inhalable mist. This allows the medication to easily be inhaled into your lungs through a mouthpiece or even a mask. By transforming any liquid medicine into a fine mist, the medication is easily and effectively inhaled to open up any constricted airway in the lungs. The compressor is connected to the plastic cup filled with liquid medicine by a clear tube and passes oxygen and air through the medication at a high velocity to create a mist of fine particles that get inhaled into the lungs to treat respiratory disorders such as COPD, asthma, and even cystic fibrosis.

The effectiveness of the medication depends largely on the size of the particle or droplet of medication. The general school of thought is that the smaller the particle, the greater the chance of peripheral penetration and retention. In 1966 the Task Group on Lung Dynamics discovered that particles smaller than 5 µm in diameter are appropriate for pharmaceutical aerosols since they deposit more frequently in the lower lungs, but particles below 0.5 µm have a chance of being exhaled, thereby avoiding deposition in the lungs. The chart below shows how the Pari Trek delivers more medication to the lungs versus other methods.

The Pari Trek puts out a median diameter particle of 3.8 µm for maximum absorption in the lungs and an average treatment time of 5-6 minutes. By minimizing treatment times, patient compliance increases (especially with small children). Try getting children to sit still for 5-6 minutes, let alone for respiratory therapy!! With the available lithium-ion rechargeable battery, battery life is 50 minutes so the unit can be taken on the road without the fear of a dead battery for several treatments.

The Beauty of the Timestrip

The nebulizer cup that holds the medication is durable but still needs to be replaced approximately every six months. In order to facilitate this, the Pari Trek S uses an ingenious bit of technology called a timestrip. This creates a visual reminder when to replace your nebulizer cup. To activate simply press the button on the strip to activate and a red line in the center circle indicates activation. This strip should be attached to the nebulizer compressor and not the cup that holds the medication. After approximately six months, the word now will appear in the oval replace nebulizer cup window. Easy peasy!! This makes it easy to remember when you need to replace your plastic nebulizer medicine cup without having to record the date that you started using it. See the below diagram that shows how the three stages of the timestrip are displayed. Keeping your equipment maintained properly not only keeps them in proper working order, but makes your respiratory therapy more efficient

How to assemble and use Pari Trek Compressor Nebulizer?

Understanding how the Pari Trek operates can help you understand how to assemble it as well as potentially troubleshoot any problem. The Pari Trek S Nebulizer System is available with or without a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. This nebulizer weighs 0.8 pounds (1.2 pounds with battery) so it’s extremely lightweight and portable while putting out a maximum pressure of 35 psi. Included in the package are 2 reusable nebulizers, portable compressor, tubing, and an instructional DVD. The kit also includes an AC adapter as well as a 12 V DC adapter to maximize portability. Simply plug into a 12 V port (cigarette lighter for us older folks) in the car and treatment can be given anywhere. This is all included in the convenient travel bag to make it easy to take your therapy with you. All the user needs to do is fill the nebulizer cup with liquid medication to the appropriate level and connect the wingtip tubing to the bottom of the cup via the air intake and then attach the other end of the tubing to the convenient portable compressor and turn on the unit to begin therapy. That’s it!! Users should regularly clean the parts of the nebulizer cup to avoid any bacteria or mold build-up that can aggravate any respiratory issues. The nebulizer cup should be replaced every six months just to be safe. The nebulizer cup is easily disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled. The diagram below shows how simple it is to disassemble the nebulizer cup and its parts. The quiet, efficient compressor nebulizer can deliver medication in approximately 5-6 minutes at a rate of 8.5 LPM, so therapy times are kept to a minimum. This can be a blessing when small children are involved, since getting our kids to sit still for five minutes can be a challenge (let alone for therapy time).
