For some medications your doctor may recommend to filter the exhalation breath to avoid exposing caregivers to the medication. In these instances, the PARI Filter/Valve set when used correctly greatly reduces the amount of aerosol that would otherwise enter the environment. The filter housing is simple to use, and replaces your existing mouthpiece on your PARI LC® Reusable Nebulizer.
My family member uses a nebulizer for 4-8 treatments per day. The vapor for one of the meds, Muco-Mist, is very heavy, smelly, sticky. With this filtering system we no longer have the thick sticky vapor floating around in the room collecting on the surfaces of the furniture and leaving a very strong, sulfurous odor in the house. My main complaint about the filtering nebulizer is that the single-use filters are a little costly at about $1.50 to $1.95 each. Because of this we only use the filtering nebulizer for the Muco-Mist treatments and use a standard nebulizer set for the other treatments. Please keep in mind you may need a heavier duty nebulizer to push the treatments when using a filter because of back pressure. Our little medium-duty nebulizer quit after one month of using the filtered nebulizer set, but I can't blame the filtered set because it works as it is supposed to.
