What to buy with Compressor Nebulizer System


Respironics SideStream Aerosol Technology

The SideStream nebulizer has been developed as a result of considerable research into aerosol therapy. SideStream nebulizer are suitable for nebulizing all commonly prescribed aerosol therapy medications, including antibiotics, bronchodilators and steroids.

Reduced Treatment Duration:
Active Venturi of SideStream and the nebulizer top are designed to draw in additional air during inspiration. Added to the flow from the compressor, this additional air boosts aerosol output rate up to 16 l/min and reduces treatment times.

Consistent Delivery of High-Quality Aerosol Therapy:
SideStream keeps the driving air and the liquid drug separate. This, combined with the use of durable materials, enables reproducibility in performance between all individual units and minimizes the potential for wear and blockage.

Driving Gas = 6 l/min
Venturi Air Entrainment = 10 l/min
Aerosol Flow to Patient = 16 l/min

What is a "disposable nebulizer"?  This cannot mean  that it is used only once, right?


Customer Care    09/10/2021

A disposable nebulizer basically means that it is intended for use by a single patient in facilities, for short periods (for people taking temporary treatments and for use in hospitals and care facilities).
