The InnoSpire Elegance from Philips Respironics is a compact nebulizer compressor for home use that will give you consistently fast, dependable treatments. This compressor has a sleek, modern design and weighs only 3.3 lbs., making it very easy to store. To make readying treatments easier, this compressor features a docking station that stabilizes the nebulizer cup so you can pour in the medication using both hands. To help people with arthritis or weak hands, this compressor features a top-down (versus horizontal) tubing connector that makes it easier to attach the tubing to the nebulizer compressor. Also, the power switch, being on top of the compressor, is easy to access and makes taking treatments easier. This nebulizer compressor differs from its sister compressor, the InnoSpire Essence, because it is capable of continuous use – you do not have to turn this compressor off and let it rest.
This nebulizer compressor comes with 2 sidestream nebulizer sets: one disposable and the other reusable. Sidestream nebulizers differ from regular nebulizer sets in that they provide you with faster drug delivery, which means faster treatment times. See the above brochure link for a rundown on how sidestream nebulizers and their venturi design can improve your treatments.
The disposable nebulizer included in this package is meant only for 2 weeks’ worth of treatments. After 2 weeks, the effectiveness of treatments begins to diminish. The reusable nebulizer included in this package is good for 6 months’ worth of treatments. Also, be sure to regularly replace this compressor’s air filter every 30 days or when it appears dirty or grey.
To ensure your nebulizer treatments are as effective as possible for months to come, be sure to add another reusable neb set and replacement air filters to your order!
Mostly disappointed in this nebulizer. Cup for solution is way too large. The mouthpiece is unusual in shape and has a vent that is so large it's like sucking on a straw - couldn't tell I was actually inhaling the treatment/mist. Eventually found a way to seal up part of the opening to improve flow. I wasn't expecting it to be totally quiet but was surprised at how loud it actually was. I wouldn't order this again. Most handheld portable nebulizers I've tried are by far better than this unit.
Excellent-ordering process, price, on time delivery, performance
This model is very quite compared to others I have used. Small footprint and height make it easy to store or take up very little room on a counter.
Unit stopped working after 3 MONTHS. Vender charges for shipping to and from for warranty. Called manufacturer which stated must go thru vender for warranty. Recalled vender and they stated that it's the manufacturer policy to charge shipping. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, it may not work very long. Then you have to get another prescription to buy another nebulizer. Not worth the hassle for a product you need to rely on.
Philips Respironics is a very reputable nebulizer brand and they stand behind their products. The Elegance is warrantied by the manufacturer for 5 years. Please call us with your machine so we can assist you in processing the warranty request.
