More About Drive 646 Nebulizer

To Fill:
  • Remove port cap and position nebulizer aerosol port in an upward position.
  • Fill nebulizer through the main aerosol port with a prescribed amount of medication.
  • The nebulizer is designed with a no-spill internal rim to prevent the medication from accidentally spilling.
  • Do not fill above o-ring at the base of medication reservoir. Overfilling may cause nebulizer to leak.
To Use:
  • It is important to be in a comfortable upright position during your treatment.
  • Fill nebulizer as previously instructed. Attach mouthpiece to T-piece.
    - Note: The Model 646 nebulizer includes a mouthpiece specifically designed for use with this model. It is not compatible with other sizes of mouthpieces.
  • Attach nebulizer tubing to a mechanical compressor such as the DeVilbiss 5650, 4650, or 3655 series compressors. If compressed air or oxygen is used, set regulator to permit 5-7 lbs. pressure or a flow of 6-8 liters per minute.
  • To attain maximum aerosol output, remove air vent cap from side vent of the nebulizer.
  • Turn on an air compressor. Aerosol will not flow until thumb-valve is closed as described below.
  • Position mouthpiece between teeth. Place finger over thumb-valve. As aerosol begins to flow, inhale deeply. At the end of the inhalation, remove finger from thumb-valve and hold breath for two seconds.
  • Remove nebulizer from mouth and exhale slowly.
  • This procedure should be repeated until all prescribed medication is nebulized.
    - Note: Blow through T-piece Model 646 nebulizer is designed to remain in the mouth during exhalation if desired.
  • The nebulizer may be used without a mouthpiece.
  • Position nebulizer aerosol port in mouth so that aerosol avoids teeth and tongue. Follow same administration procedure as described above.
To Clean:
  • Remove nebulizer tubing from compressor and nebulizer. Remove mask or mouthpiece.
  • Unscrew upper half of nebulizer from the lower half and rinse all parts under hot tap water after every use.
  • Daily, wash nebulizer, jet, mouthpiece, thumb-valve in hot, soapy water. If jet is clogged, use cleaning wire (not shown).
  • Rinse with hot tap water for 30 seconds, then soak in one part white vinegar (>=5% acetic acid concentration) to three parts hot water (131ËšF-149ºF/55ËšC65ËšC) for 30 minutes. Rinse with hot tap water and air dry. Replace or clean tubing monthly by following nebulizer cleaning instructions.
  • To remove excess water from tubing, attach to compressor or air source and allow air to pass through tubing until excess moisture is removed.
  • A nebulizer is constructed of latex-free polycarbonate that, with the exception of the mouthpiece and o-ring, will withstand sterilization by autoclaving (@ 273ËšF for 15 minutes) or boiling. It may also be sterilized with any suitable germicidal agent.
  • Always prepare a fresh solution for each cleaning cycle.
  • To avoid possible contamination, your nebulizer should be stored with port and vent caps in place until your next treatment.
