How does the system work?
The Pulmo-Aide Compact Compressor Nebulizer System converts liquid medication into a fine mist that can be inhaled into the lungs. The medication is placed in the nebulizer cup, which is then connected to the compressor via the tubing kit. The compressor then delivers compressed air to the nebulizer cup, which converts the medication into a mist for inhalation.

How to use Devilbiss Compact Compressor?
- Start by placing the Devilbiss Compact Compressor on a smooth, level surface so that the controls can be easily reached when seated. Do not block the air openings of the compressor or place it on a soft surface, such as bed, couch or patient lap where the air openings may be blocked.
- Make sure the power switch is in the "Off" position. Power cord is then unwrapped and plugged into an appropriate wall outlet. Plug Devilbiss breathing machine into a grounded wall outlet.
Note: Must be operated on the specified power source to avoid risk of electric shock and damage to the compressor.
- Wash hands.
- One end of nebulizer tubing is then connected to the compressor air-outlet connector.
Note: During high-humidity weather conditions, condensation (water build up) can occur in the nebulizer tubing.
- Assemble clean Devilbiss nebulizer and add prescribed medication.
- Assemble mouthpiece, corrugated tubing, t-piece (if applicable) and insert into the top of the nebulizer cap. When you are using an aerosol mask, insert the bottom of the mask into the top of the nebulizer cap directly.
- Attach tubing to nebulizer air-inlet connector.
- Press the power switch "On" to start the Pulmo Aide Compact Compressor.
- Begin treatment by placing the mouthpiece between teeth. Keeping your mouth closed, inhale slowly and deeply through mouth as aerosol begins to flow, then exhale slowly through the mouthpiece. If treatment needs to be interrupted, simply press power switch "Off".
Note: Your physician may recommend a specific breathing pattern during treatment. If so, follow his/her recommendations.
- If an aerosol mask is used, place the mask over mouth and nose. As aerosol begins to flow, inhale deeply and slowly through mouth, then exhale slowly.
- When treatment is complete, turn unit off by pressing the power switch to the "Off" position. Unplug the unit from the wall power outlet.
How to clean?
Clean After Every Use:
- With power switch in the “Off” position, unplug power cord from wall outlet.
- Disconnect tubing from the air-inlet connector and set aside.
- Disassemble mouthpiece or mask from cap. Open nebulizer by turning cap counterclockwise and removing baffle.
- Wash all items, except tubing, in a warm water/dishwashing detergent solution. Rinse under warm tap water for 30 seconds to remove detergent residue. Allow to air dry.
- For reusable nebulizer only, clean daily in dishwasher using top shelf.
Caution: The reusable nebulizer is dishwasher safe, but do not place any disposable nebulizer parts in an automatic dishwasher; doing so could cause damage.

Be sure to follow manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
- With clean hands, remove items from disinfectant solution, rinse under warm tap water, and air dry on a clean paper towel. Store in a zip-lock bag.
Note: Do not towel dry nebulizer parts; this could cause contamination.
- With power switch in the "Off" position, unplug power cord from wall outlet.
