The AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer helps convert liquid medication into an aerosol so it can be inhaled into the lungs. Breath Actuated means aerosol is only produced when you inhale through the device. When you are exhaling or between breaths, it will stop, so you do not waste the medicine. This will help more medication get to your lungs instead of going into the air around you.
Let Breathing Take Control
The AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer is easy to use, consistent, and reliable. It will provide the highest amount of medication at the best size to travel deep into the lungs where it can work to help you breathe easier.
This study used the AEROECLIPSE® Nebulizer not the AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer which is currently on the market. The AEROECLIPSE® Nebulizer and AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer are equivalent in regards to in vitro performance. Schmidt J, Pevler J, Doyle C, Wiersema K, Nagel M, Mitchell J.

How to Use the AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer
Step 1 Carefully place prescribed medication into the nebulizer cup and replace the nebulizer top.
Step 2 Place the mouthpiece in your mouth then breathe in slowly and deeply and exhale normally through the device until the device makes a ‘sputter’ noise.
Step 3 Wash your nebulizer according to the package instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a nebulizer?
A nebulizer is a medical device prescribed by your provider and designed to work with a compressed air source to change liquid medication into a fine mist so it can be inhaled directly into the lungs. You may need nebulizer treatments if you have asthma or lung diseases, such as cystic fibrosis or COPD. If you have questions about the prescribed medication inside the nebulizer, please talk to your healthcare provider.
What makes the AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer different than other nebulizers?
The AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer only creates aerosol when you breathe in. This means medication is not wasted between breaths or if you need to take a break (for example if you need to cough or have a conversation). This puts you in control of your aerosol treatment and creates a safer home environment. Other nebulizers continuously produce aerosol whether you are inhaling, exhaling or resting. This means your medication may be lost into the room instead of delivered to your lungs. In some cases this can be hazardous to the health of others who may be close to you during the treatments.
Can I use the AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer like a regular nebulizer?
Yes, the AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer can nebulize continuously or in the breath actuated mode described above by a simple turn of the dial. This allows for flexibility in therapy while still allowing for a high quality nebulizer treatment with a lot of medication going deep into the lungs.
How can the AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer change your treatments?
The AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer allows your healthcare provider many treatment options that may include fewer or shorter treatment times, less medication put in your nebulizer, or running the AEROECLIPSE® II Nebulizer continuously. The result is better care that allows you to take your treatment as prescribed.
