Dosing & Treatment

+ How much medication does the AireHealth Nebulizer hold?

Our Nebulizer can hold up to 6 ml of medication.

+ What medications can I use in the AireHealth Nebulizer?

Common medications that can be used in our Nebulizer are albuterol, ipratropium bromide, a mixture of both of these drugs commonly called Duo-Neb, and Budesonide. In addition, the unit can deliver normal saline.

+ How long does the treatment take?

A 3 ml treatment should take between 7 and 9 minutes this is because the average delivery rate is .35 ml to .40 ml per minute! Don’t forget that our Nebulizer delivers approximately 98% of the medication in the medication cup unlike a compressor/nebulizer that can have as much as 1 ml remaining when they begin to sputter.

+ Should I use a mouthpiece or mask to take a treatment?

This is a personal preference. However, using a mouthpiece provides a more direct way to inhale the medication.

+ If I’m using this for a child what size mask should I use?

The mask adapter is universal so you can use a neonatal, pediatric or adult mask, depending on the size of your child

Battery and Charging

+ How many treatments can I get from a full battery charge?

A fully charged AireHealth Nebulizer will operate for 90 minutes.

+ How long does it take to charge the battery?

A fully depleted battery will take 6 hours to charge.

+ Can I put the battery on the charger even if it’s not depleted?

It is always best to deplete the battery before charging.

+ Can I use a different charger to charge the battery?

We recommend that you only use the charge supplied with the unit. Please see the Instructions for Use for more information on charging your nebulizer.

+ If I plug the charge into the handset and the blinking red charge light does not come on, is the battery still charging?

No. The blinking red light indicates that the battery is charging, which only occurs when the battery has been depleted. If the AireHealth nebulizer is plugged in the charge and the batteries are completely charge, the blinking red light will not be seen because the unit is not in charge mode.

Parts and Maintenance 

+ How often do I need to clean the medication cup?

You should operate the unit with distilled water after each use. If that is not possible then you should operate the unit with distilled water at the end of each day that it has been used. Please reference the Instructions for Use for cleaning instructions.

+ How long do I run the unit with distilled water?

You only need to operate the unit with distilled water for 15 to 30 seconds to clean the mesh. After that remove the medication cup from the unit and discard any remaining distilled water and air dry the medication cup.

+ My AireHealth Nebulizer sometimes drips medication from the mouthpiece. Is this normal?

Yes. This is because the aerosol is so dense, some of the aerosol can collect on the inside of the mouthpiece during treatment. This can cause a small amount of liquid to drip from the mouthpiece, which is referred to as “rainout.” To eliminate rainout, tilt the unit slightly forward during treatment as described in the instruction manual. This will allow the aerosol to leave the mouthpiece with little or no rainout.

+ If I have a problem with the unit who do I email?

You can email with any concerns or questions.

There are 2 possible answers. First, be sure that the contacts on the handset and medication cup are clean in accordance to the quick reference guide. Second, be sure that the medication cup is attached properly to the handset. To do this be sure that you hear “click” when you attach the medication cup to handset.
