Pari LC Plus Nebulizer. Here's my tidbit to contribute:
We like the Pari LC Plus Nebulizer much better than
previous ones we've used over the last 10 years. It can be boiled and is easy to shake
dry, and easy to adjust for someone sitting in different positions so that the neb stays
upright. It can be used with a mask or mouthpiece.
You may be interested to know that Dr Allan Coates at The
Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto, Ontario) has done a study comparing different
nebulizers and this is the one that he recommends, because it breaks up the medicine to an
appropriate particle size and delivers more of the medicine than most others. As a result
the Toronto Clinic (Largest CF Clinic in Canada) is switching its patients over to the
PARI LC PLUS NEBULIZER. Dr Allan Coates has found delivery of more of the medication by
using the mouthpiece than the mask.
He has also found that disposable nebulizers, after 2-3
uses gradually develop an enlarged channel that the medicine goes through and then can no
longer deliver the optimum particle size. They really are intended to be single use and
disposable like the package says!
