In order that you benefit fully from your equipment, it is important that the machine and accessories are kept in a clean condition.
Ensure that the medication chamber is taken apart and washed in warm soapy water, rinsed and allowed to dry completely after each use. The jet holes should be blown clear by attaching the chamber to the air outlet from the compressor and running the machine for a few moments.
We advise that the tube is disconnected from both the outlet nozzle and the chamber after each use to prolong the life of the connector.
It is recommended that the following disposable items should be changed as follows:
Nebuliser chamber change every 1 - 3 months
Inlet filter disc
Driveline change every 3 - 6 months
