The Omron NE-U22V is the smallest, lightest (only 6 ounces with batteries inserted), and most portable nebulizer available for the aerosol dependent patient. The Vibrating Mesh Technology (V.M.T.) creates a dense therapeutic mist by moving the medication through a mesh metal alloy. The mesh nebulizes the medication to a particle size of 5 microns, allowing for 98% medication delivery in shorter times than most larger nebulizers.
Unlike traditional ultrasonic nebulizers, the Omron MicroAir's Vibrating Mesh Technology does not transfer heat to the medication, so it can be used with nearly any inhaled medication. It is capable of delivering most liquid medications such as Albuterol®, Alupent®, Brokosol®, Isuprel®,Proventil®, Ventolin®, Xopenex®, DuoNeb® and Intal®. Included is a small protective case about the size of a glasses case, allowing users to easily take their Omron NE U22V nebulizer with them everywhere. The portability of the Omron Micro-Air is unmatched!
Setting the bar for portable nebulizers, the Omron Micro-Air has earned top reviews from buyers due to its reliability, convenient size, easy to use design, unique powering options (can use AA batteries), and silent operation. While it's only slightly larger than an inhaler, don’t let its small size fool you, as it produces respiratory relief unmatched by other portable nebulizers.
This product requires that you regularly replace the vibrating mesh cap every 6 months to maintain its peak performance, so consider adding one to your order to keep your unit running smoothly for a whole year. The Omron MicroAir can be used with an optional pediatric or adult mask.

Safe for use with most solution medications, including Albuterol®, Alupent®, Brokosol®, Isuprel®, Proventil®, Ventolin®, Xopenex®, DuoNeb® and Intal®
Vibrating Mesh Technology is the use of low frequency vibration (180 kHz) produced by a horn transducer that pushes medication through a metal alloy mesh plate with over 6000 holes to create an efficient, therapeutic, low velocity aerosol.
Unlike Metered Dose Inhalers (MDI's) with "high velocity" aerosol delivery, difficult inhalation techniques and the need for "spacing devices", the Micro-Air delivers low velocity aerosol and requires no coordination issues with breathing. This makes Micro-Air suitable for use with all patients regardless of age. Micro-Air's efficient VMT system delivers to the last drop of medication and can operate with small volumes starting as low as 0.5ml. Micro-Air's low frequency requires less power consumption, allowing for operation from two "AA" batteries and reducing weight to 6 ounces. Add to this a profile comparable to today's new cellular phones and you have the optimal nebulizer for today's active respiratory patient.
