Respironics Sidestream Reusable Nebulizer provides maximum aerosol quality and respirable output for the delivery of most commonly prescribed medications. The unique venturi design offers faster drug delivery and shorter treatment times. Sidestream Reusable Nebulizer delivers 2.5ml of drug output within 7 minutes, so that patients can spend more time on their normal activities. It speeds up the treatment times by using 5 aerosol-producing jet holes instead of one, which provides additional flow to the patients.

3. Unscrew the top from the medicine cup

4. Pour the prescribed medication into the medicine cup, 2-10ml fill.


5. Screw the top back onto the medicine cup and connect the mouthpiece/mask.

Note - Do not lay the SideStream down on its side, because the medication will spill out. It is recommended to replace SideStream every 6 months.

Taking treatment using Sidestream

  1. To take the treatment, sit in an upright position and relax
  2. Switch on the compressor, supply flow to be 6-8l/min. Make sure mist is visibly coming from the mouthpiece/mask.
  3. Take the mouthpiece between your teeth, surround it with your lips and breathe in and out slowly through your mouth or place the mask in position over nose and mouth and breath slowly in and out through your mouth.

When the SideStream begins to work intermittently and ‘sputters’, then the treatment is finished. There is no need to nebulize every drop of your medication, there will always be a small amount left in the medicine cup.

How to clean Sidestream Nebulizer Kit?

  • After every use -
    1. Disconnect the SideStream from the tubing. Unscrew the top from the medicine cup, rinse out the nebulizer and refill with clean water.
    2. Reassemble top and medicine cup, reconnect the tubing and run SideStream again for a few seconds to flush out any drug trapped in the nebulizer jets.
    3. Take apart the nebulizer
    4. Disconnect tubing from the medicine cup.
    5. Wash all items (except tubing) in either hot soapy water or contained within a basket on the top rack of your dishwasher.
    6. Rinse all parts in clean water for 2 minutes.
    7. Shake off excess water and allow to air dry. Do not towel dry.
    8. Reassemble and store the SideStream in a clean place when not in use
  • Once a week -
    1. Disassemble the nebulizer
    2. Boil the SideStream (except tubing) in water with 2–3 drops of dishwashing liquid for 10 minutes
    3. Rinse all parts in clean water for 2 minutes
    4. Shake off excess water and allow to air dry. Do not towel dry
    5. Reassemble and store SideStream in a clean place when not in use

Note - It is recommended to boil your reusable SideStream (except for tubing) in water (minimum 212° F) with 2–3 drops of dishwashing liquid for 10 minutes. This ensures maximum performance.

Warnings -
  • Clogged jets or improper assembly may prevent proper delivery of medication
  • To reduce the risk of infection, clean and disinfect the nebulizer between treatments

Cautions -
  • Do not try to remove the red jet from the medicine cup. This is permanently attached
  • Do not towel dry the unit and never use a cleaning brush or put sharp objects into the jet holes or baffles as this will damage the nebulizer
  • Sidestream reusable is not suitable for use in a ventilator circuit
  • Do not remove the top when connected to the gas supply

Can it be used in DeVilbis traveler?


Customer Care    03/08/2019

"Respironics Sidestream Reusable Nebulizer is not compatible with DeVilbis traveller nebulizer."



Charles     02/26/2016

Can the Nebulizer withstand Boiling water to Sterilize?


Customer Care    02/27/2016

You can boil water for 10 minutes, then drop the nebulizer parts in and let them sit for another 10 minutes. Again, don’t wash the nebulizer tubing, mask or compressor. After they’ve sat for 10 minutes, put them on a towel to air dry. Cleaning and sterilizing your nebulizer will help get rid of any potential germs/bacteria and keep your nebulizer running at maximum efficiency.
