microwaves and nebulizers

Posted by terryb1 @128128terry11t, May 17, 2017

Was calling some number today to order a few more nebulizers so that if I go away, I won’t have to keep cleaning/sterilizing (great suggestion obtained from the forum). I happened to ask the question: “Is it all right to microwave nebulizer in steam bags or in baby bottle sterilizer equipment?” The gal replied an emphatic “no”. I was not clever enough to ask why … suppose plastic might melt or give off something toxic?? Person went on to say that they only recommend boiling (for 5 minutes) or soaking in 1part white vinegar to 3 parts water for at least 30 minutes. I wish that I could find the number that I called but anyone may verify by going on internet and calling a number or live chatting with someone from a reputable nebulizer company. Please advise if you get a different response. Hope that this is helpful.

Interesting Terry. This appears to contradict what @lindam272 reported from the manufacturers instructions to use the microwave. In this message http://mayocl.in/2qD7XjC she wrote:
“…take nebulizer parts and aerobika mouthpiece and soak all in hot soapy water. Later, rinse all parts well and put in the bottle sterilizer, microwave according to directions the sterilizer comes with, remove. I usually let it cool for a bit. Remove parts. Lay out to dry. Rinse/wash out sterilizer and let that dry.”

Linda, did you see Terry’s message about being told not to use the microwave?

Katherine, do I need to buy the compressor separate from nebulizer? Is it better to get the portable or the hand held. They can’t send me the Amikacine until I have the machine. My Dr. did not tell me anything or prefer me for this. Thank you all for your help and I’m glad I have you all to guide me. I really appreciate this forum, you are all God sends. Thanks! Blessing to all! Cila
