Re: Questions about how to use inhaled GSH
Carrie, I did a little research on nebs real quick and I found an article on the different kind I copied a little piece of it "Vibrating mesh nebulizers are the newest technology and are able to generate high overall output respirable fractions. The technology reduces the amount of drug that is wasted by vibrating a mesh or plate with multiple apertures (precisely placed, according to Cambridge), which aerosolizes virtually all of the drug solution.Vibrating mesh may be active where the mesh is vibrated directly and acts as an electronic micropump (Airon and PARI) or passive (Omron and Respironics) where an ultrasonic horn pushes medication through a mesh. Aerogen's Aeroneb, Omron's NEU-22, PARI's eFlow, and Respironics' I-neb are examples of this type of nebulizer. These devices tend to have higher output rates than do standard nebs with particle size dictated by the size of the apertures. With drug delivery efficiency rates greater than 50% (and often closer to 60%), treatment time is much shorter. eFlow can complete delivery of medication within 2 to 3 minutes. Cambridge compares this to the 7 to 15 minutes conventional nebulizers need to deliver the same dose."
Do you use the pari? I told you mine was the inspiration but it is actually made by Respironics and it is the I-neb. So I am wondering if they are close to the same thing. It sounds like it is the same technology. I am still going to ask the docotor I just wanted to know if this is the pari you use.... Thanks
