What Replacement Parts Do I Need?
This entry was posted on February 2, 2015.
Nebology.com now offers nebulizer supply replacement kits so you can keep your system working properly, get a year's worth of supplies at once, and even receive a 10 percent discount.
After you answer a few quick questions about your nebulizer, we'll pick the right parts and ship them to you. Keep reading to learn about compressors and nebulizer cups so you can feel more certain about which nebulizer you use.
The PARI Vios and PARI Vios PRO
The PARI Vios Nebulizer Compressor System is the most common aerosol therapy system we sell (it's also often sold at local Walgreens), and it's a tabletop model. Versions for adults have green or medium blue exteriors, while the pediatric model can be either yellow or green.
Alternatively, the PARI Vios PRO Nebulizer Compressor System has a navy blue body and was only released in January 2014. Because it is a more robust version of the original Vios compressor, this model requires a special type of tubing and filter to deliver treatments correctly. Although some companies send standard tubing for this model, we'll always provide the stronger tubing to ensure optimal performance.
The supplies for the PARI Vios PRO are slightly more expensive, but after you indicate that's the device you own by using the drop-down menu on the Supply Replacement Kit page, you'll see the price update automatically.
If your nebulizer is portable, you need parts for the PARI Trek or PARI Trek S (or the European version - the PARI Boy Mobile S). Depending on the version you initially purchased, your compressor may or may not have an attached battery pack. You can recognize a portable model by sight because it has a body that's mostly navy blue, with a bit of yellow at one end.
The PARI Trek S is typically packaged with the PARI LC Sprint Nebulizer Cup, so you can easily know which version nebulizer cup you use. The Trek S uses standard Wing Tip Tubing and the same replacement filters as the Vios model above - if you purchase parts for your Vios, they can also be used for your Trek S!
The PARI Ultra II and the ProNeb Ultra: Different Models That Look Similar
People often confuse the PARI Ultra II with an older nebulizer called the PARI ProNeb Ultra, because they're both grey. Fortunately, the compressor models have their respective names on the exterior, so that's the easiest way to tell which one you have.
You can see the filter for the PARI ProNeb Ultra by looking at the front of the compressor. That model also has a handle on its top. In contrast, the filter for the PARI Ultra II cannot be seen without removing the compressor's round, indented cap.
The PARI ProNeb
The older PARI ProNeb Compressor has a white, rectangular body. It's the oldest nebulizer in our product family, but, like newer PARI models, has the compressor name printed on the body. After removing the filter, you'll notice it has a black cage and pinkish filter material.
Learn Which Nebulizer Cup You Use
Similar to PARI compressors, nebulizer cups are identifiable by color and usually have a product name printed on the cup. The PARI LC Plus Nebulizer Cup is the most common model our customers purchase, and it has a white/clear body. The cup has a rectangular handle and a blue circle on the top.
On the other hand, the PARI LC Sprint Nebulizer Cup is half blue, and half white/clear. A rounded handle extends from the back. Like the cup that fits the PARI LC Plus, this accessory has the product name printed on the side.
Finally, the LC Star Nebulizer Cup is red and white. It's the least commonly purchased cup in our inventory.
