When to use Drive Power Neb Nebulizer?

  • People with breathing problems, such as Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) or Cystic Fibrosis are often prescribed medicines that minimize or control symptoms of their disease

  • Compressor Nebulizer Systems are a means of delivering these prescribed medications to the lungs. These medications and the compressor nebulizer systems should be used as directed by a physician to maximize benefits.

  • Compressor Nebulizer systems can be prescribed for use every day or periodically as symptoms present themselves, such as the springtime when Hay Fever or Allergies are normally present

How does Power Neb Ultra work?

  • Most medicines that are to be used with a medical compressor nebulizer system are created in a liquid form
  • This liquid medication is placed in the nebulizer cup
  • The compressor is connected to the nebulizer by flexible tubing and generates a specific pressure and flow of air that drives the nebulizer
  • The pressurized air produced by the compressor initiates the ability of the nebulizer to break down the liquid medication into a very fine mist
  • This mist is often referred to as an aerosol cloud. It is propelled out of the nebulizer and inhaled into the lungs where the medicine is readily absorbed.

Power Neb Ultra Treatment Procedure

  • Some patients may find difficulty while taking a nebulizer treatment, especially very young children. In such cases, it is recommended to use an aerosol mask
  • The most important aspect of taking treatment is the patient’s breathing pattern while inhaling the medication mist
  • Sit up straight and breathe in deep
  • Inhale medication mist slowly. A general rule of thumb is to attempt to breathe in so deeply that it feels as though the lungs are completely full of air and inhaling any additional air is impossible.
  • If possible, hold your breath for 1-2 seconds and then slowly exhale through the nebulizer mouthpiece or mask
  • Hold your breath for 1-2 seconds after inhaling the medication allows for optimal absorption of medication in the lungs
  • Repeat this breathing pattern for 5 - 20 minutes
  • Turn off the compressor

Power Neb Ultra User Manuals

Drive Power Neb Ultra Compressor Nebulizer FAQs

1. What medicine is in a nebulizer?

A nebulizer converts liquid medicine into fine droplets inhaled through a mouthpiece or mask (in aerosol or mist form). Medications like Bronchodilators, albuterol, Xopenex, or Pulmicort can be delivered using nebulizers.

2. What is a jet nebulizer?

A jet nebulizer is a machine that transforms certain liquid medicines into a fine mist that a person inhales through a mouthpiece or face mask. Moreover, it sends the medication directly to the person’s lungs, where it is required.

3. Is a nebulizer better than an inhaler?

Both devices are equally effective, though each has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Inhalers allow for more room for human error; however, they help the patient act quickly. Similarly, a nebulizer is difficult to use on the go, but it can be used for longer periods.
