Hello, and welcome to the Mayo Connect community. We are people living with a wide variety of diseases and conditions, who try to help one another along the way. We each strive to be informed medical consumers, and our own best advocates in our care. We are not medical professionals, so not able to provide medical advice. We can tell you what has worked for us (or not) and provide you with information and conversation about your question.

As you can see in this discussion, this is a topic of great interest to all of us as we try to stay healthy. My program is pretty simple, and I use it for my nebulizer parts, Aerobika vibratory device and my inhalers and spacer. I described it here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/living-dangerously/?pg=9#comment-615922

I will just add that for my daily rinse after use, I use very hot tap water and air dry. This has been my routine for a couple of years, with only one minor exacerbation 2 weeks age.

Other people, especially those who have frequent flares, may have a more conservative approach.

A couple final questions, which Innospire are you using, and do you currently have an active infection?

Sue

Sue, Are we supposed to be using 'industrial strength' vinegar to clean Aerobika? I have been using 5% vinegar which I dilute (1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water). HELP!

Hi, I have the Innospire Go. No active infection but MAC shows up in my sputum tests…
