Many of our customers have had their nebulizer systems for years but have never been instructed about how to care for their devices. Nebulizer systems require a bit of maintenance to ensure the most effective treatments for you.
Did you know that PARI nebulizer cups can be boiled or washed in the dishwasher? Or that vinegar and water is a safe and effective way to disinfect your nebulizer supplies? Keeping your nebulizer equipment clean is one important key to a healthy respiratory system. Germs that deposit on the equipment during an illness should be thoroughly disinfected so they don't become a bigger problem. Read more on our blog about cleaning your supplies...
Did you know that PARI filters often start to turn gray when they need to be replaced? Or that your filter has the important job of removing pollen, dust and debris from the air that's about to go into your lungs? So many customers get their nebulizer systems with very few instructions or education about taking care of each piece and part. While some parts can be cleaned, others just need to be replaced every so often. Read our blog to learn when to replace your nebulizer supplies...

Properly caring for your nebulizer could increase its lifespan, prevent it from getting clogged, and minimize your risk of getting an infection. Below, you can learn some easy tips that will keep your nebulizer and the respective parts performing as you expect.
Find a Suitable Space
To begin, go to an area in your home that’s free of dust and smoke. Also, make sure you’re not near any open windows, because contaminants could come through and make your job more difficult. Set-up an area of your home for recently cleaned nebulizer cups and supplies. Make sure to dry newly cleaned items with fresh towels and always store your sanitized supplies in an area free from dust.
Things to Do Each Day
After every treatment, rinse the nebulizer cup with warm water, shake it gently to get rid of excess liquid, and allow it to air dry. At the end of each day, clean more thoroughly by using warm water and gentle dish soap on both the mouthpiece or mask, and the nebulizer cup. There’s no need to rinse the tubing.
