Cleaning and Maintenance

  • Once treatment is complete, remove and disassemble the mouthpiece/mask and chamber and wash in warm soapy water. Rinse with clean water and leave to air-dry. Never dry on a direct heat source. The tubing should not be washed.
  • The nebuliser is disassembled into 3 separate parts including the baffle, a small component which fits inside the bottom of the nebuliser chamber and is easily lost. If baffle is not in place, the nebuliser will not produce an aerosol.
  • The compressor should be unplugged, wiped with a damp cloth and stored in its carry case.
  • Tubing, chamber and mask/mouthpieces should be replaced every 3 to 4 months.
  • Filters should be replaced every 3 months and the compressor will be serviced annually.
  • Patients should be given clear instructions for their local servicing and what to do if the nebuliser breaks down.
