PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The AeroEclipse® II  Breath Actuated Nebulizer (BAN) creates aerosol in response to the patient’s inspiratory flow.  This patient on-demand therapy means less medication waste, higher drug delivery efficiency and safer clinician working environments.

Combining the benefits of breath actuation and a superior aerosol particle size, the BANdelivers the industry’s most effective respirable dose. Supported by clinical evidence, the BAN™, provides approved dosing protocols throughout the hospital and for all patient populations.

THE FACTS

  • The AeroEclipse® II Breath Actuated Nebulizer delivers a high respirable dose and an optimal particle size to reach the therapeutically important areas of the lungs.
  • Proprietary one-way valve provides protection for clinicians and family members against dangerous second hand aerosols, which may carry harmful viruses.
  • Breath actuated technology maintains available drug during exhalation phase and breaks in treatment to guard against costly repeat therapies and drug loss to the environment.
  • Accommodates a wide range of patient breathing patterns including varying I:E (Inhalation:Exhalation) ratios to avoid potential under-dosing compared to continuously operating nebulizers.2
  • Designed to meet a wide range of patient population needs, the BANactivates at 15 lpm and can be used with a mouthpiece or our masks. It can also be operated manually or in a continuous mode if necessary.

BENEFIT STATEMENTS

  • Built-in mode selector allows convenient, easy operation in either breath actuated or continuous mode.
  • Green biofeedback button provides visual confirmation of actuation and inhalation, encouraging proper breathing technique.
  • AeroControl® System Regulator activates at 15 lpm of inspiratory pressure to meet the needs of a wide range of patient populations.
  • One-way exhalation valve virtually eliminates the mixing of inspirate and expirate.
  • User-friendly EZ Twist Tubing has a sturdy grip for easy assembly and removal.
  • Mouthpiece can be removed and replaced with three sizes of our disposable or reusable ComfortSeal® Masks (optional elbow adapter accommodates any standard mask).
  • Fill lines provide accurate drug measurements from 0.5 – 6ml.

Close your lips completely over the mouthpiece and do not cover the valve on the bottom of the mouthpiece. If using a mask, fit the mask tightly against your face.

Take slow, deep breaths; try to hold each breath for 3-5 seconds. The green button on the top of the AeroEclipse® II Breath Actuated Nebulizer will go down when you breathe in and will go up when you breathe out. Be sure to also follow any additional instructions your health care provider prescribes.

Please refer to the AeroEclipse® II Breath Actuated Nebulizer package insert for complete instructions and care.
