Before you start, remember to wash your hands. It is important not to introduce germs that you can breathe in and to keep your equipment clean.
Put the mouthpiece into the side opening of the nebulizer with the valve facing down.
Unscrew and remove the top of the nebulizer and place the prescribed medication into the cup. Replace the top and gently tighten.
Attach one end of the tubing to the fitting on the bottom of the nebulizer and the other end to your compressor and turn it on.
Place the mouthpiece in your mouth and inhale slowly and deeply. You will see the green button on the top of the AeroEclipse® XL BAN go down and the mist will be produced. If you are unable to trigger the valve that starts the mist, you may push the green button down with your finger while you are inhaling and let go to exhale.
When you exhale, the green button will rise and the mist will stop. You will be exhaling through the valve underneath the mouthpiece. Be careful not to place your lips over this valve, as it will not work properly.
If the medication begins to sputter, you may stop the treatment. Many people find the AeroEclipse® XL BAN is so effective in delivering medication to your lungs, treatment times can be shortened compared with standard nebulizers.
If there is a time when you would rather have a continuous mist, simply move the mode switch clockwise.
A mask with elbow adapter can be used instead of a mouthpiece if desired. Use the continuous flow mode when the mask is used.
