Nebulizer recommendation

Posted by diane36 @diane36, Aug 17 10:07am

For those who have used nebulizer for 7 percent saline, what brand do you recommend?

Hi!!! It doesn’t matter what brand just as long as it’s sterile and it’s 7% Saline I get mine at Walmart with a prescription from the doctor and they gave me a coupon to get it cheaper they’re always so nice about that. I thought that it would be on my a plan to pay —-Humana it’s not. so bad when they give me the coupon to get some money off on it I also thought that Medicare part B would pay for it since it goes into a nebulizer but they told me no on that too I think it’s just Humana thank you

Thank you, but my question re. brand referred to the nebulizer, not the solution.

Hello Diane, I am very happy with the Pari Vios (green) unit with the LC Plus nebulizer cup. It takes about 12 minutes to nebulize 4 ml of 7% saline.

Hi Bill and also Diane, I recently switched to the same Pari LC Plus nebulizing cup as Bill and it reduced my time of nebulizing. I believe that I've read that the Pari Sprint cup cuts that time even further. Anyone?? The Pari, in my opinion, is much more preferable than my old generic one. Kate

Thank you. I will certainly be checking out the Pari.

@diane36 I too prefer Pari … recently switched from Aeroeclipse because I found Pari (Sprint cup, blue) faster. Works with my Ombra compressor, but if/when that needs to be replaced, I'll go with Pari.

Thank you. Pari definitely seems to be universal preference.

@alleycatkate I have the Pari Eflow and it is fantastic, no tubes and 10 min nebulising. Heather

What serves in lieu of tubes Heathert?

REPLY

@thumperguy it has an aerosol head in the handset-mouthpiece which converts the saline(also in the handset) to aerosol, very clever, very compact.
