The AeroEclipse® II and AeroEclipse ® XL BAN Nebulizers

A nebulizer treatment – or breathing treatment – will deliver medication to your lungs in a mist. Your physician may order your medication to be given with a nebulizer instead of by a metered dose inhaler.

A compressor powers the AeroEclipse® nebulizers, the most effective aerosol delivery system available.

BAN stands for Breath Activated Nebulizer meaning the nebulizer turns on when you take a breath in. When you are exhaling, the mist will stop. This method will make more medication directly available to your lungs as opposed to the air around you. The mist particles that are produced by the AeroEclipse® II BAN are the right size to be deposited in your airways. If particles are too large, they will drop in your throat; too small and you will exhale them right back out.

Conventional nebulizers deliver a continuous mist only. The AeroEclipse® II BAN gives you the option to do either. It can be used with a mouthpiece or mask.

The sturdy AeroEclipse® XL BAN is designed for six months of home use. It may be cleaned on the top shelf of your dishwasher or disinfected with vinegar or by boiling. The AeroEclipse® XL BAN paired with Monaghan’s Ombra® compressor system will give you an extremely effective method to stay in control of your lung disease.

Taking your nebulizer treatment*

These simple steps will ensure you get the most out of your nebulizer treatment. Make sure to wash your hands well before you start your treatment.

Setting up your nebulizer

Inspect your nebulizer and ensure the exhalation valve on the mouthpiece is pointing down.

Place your compressor on a clean, flat surface or table top.

Carefully place prescribed medication into the nebulizer cup and replace the nebulizer top.

Ensure the nebulizer is kept in an upright position so your medication does not spill.

Connect the EZ Twist Tubing to the bottom of the nebulizer and the other end to the air outlet on your compressor. Ensure both ends are securely attached.

*Please remember to read the complete instructions packaged with your device.

Using your nebulizer

In a comfortably seated position, switch on your compressor.

Place the mouthpiece in your mouth, ensuring your lips are sealed around the edge but aren’t covering the exhalation valve. If you are using a mask, place securely over the nose and mouth, ensuring a good seal.

Breathe in slowly and deeply, then exhale normally through the device. Always ensure a good seal around the mouthpiece (or mask).

Continue taking slow, deep breaths until the noise created by the device changes – sometimes referred to as ‘sputter’.

When your treatment is complete, switch off your compressor.

Clean your AeroEclipse® XL BAN after each use and disinfect it as least once every other treatment day. Allow parts to dry thoroughly before reassembling, and store all parts together in a dry, dust-free place.
