How To Use John Bunn Nebulizer Compressor?
- Before each use, inspect the compressor and nebulizer cup assembly for damage or wear; replace as needed.
- Place the compressor on a table or other flat stable surface (not on the floor), in an area that is clean and dust-free. Be sure to easily reach the controls when seated.
- Open the nebulizer medication cup: Twist the cap counter-clockwise until it stops, then lift cap off.
- Pour the prescribed medication into the nebulizer medication cup. Do not fill with more than 5 ml per treatment.
- Install cap on cup. Turn clockwise to tighten.
- If using the mouthpiece for treatment, proceed to step 7. If using an optional mask, install the bottom part of the mask directly onto the top of the nebulizer medication cup cap as shown at right. Proceed to step 9
- Insert mouthpiece into large end of T adapter. Info: The reservoir tube, shown in the illustration earlier in this manual, acts as a holding tank for the mist, reducing the amount lost during treatment. Its use is optional. If the user wish to use the reservoir tube, install it now on the small end of the T adapter.
- Install T adapter onto top of nebulizer medication cup cap.
- Connect the tubing to the adapter on the bottom of the nebulizer medication cup.
- Connect the tubing''s other end to the compressor air outlet connector.
Warning: Before use, check that all parts are securely connected. Use of an improperly assembled nebulizer could diminish or prevent adequate delivery of medication and the effectiveness of the treatment.
