Operating the Compressor:

  1. Before each use inspect the Pacifica Elite Compressor and nebulizer cup assembly for damage or wear, replace as needed.

How to Take the Treatment?

  • Sit up straight and breathe in deep
  • Attempt to breathe in so deeply that it feels as though the lungs are completely full of air and inhaling any additional air is impossible
  • If possible, hold your breath for 1-2 seconds unless directed otherwise by your physician and then slowly exhale through the nebulizer mouthpiece or mask
  • Holding your breath for 1-2 seconds after inhaling the medication allows for optimal absorption of medication in the lungs
  • Repeat this breathing pattern for the entire treatment

Nebulizer Cleaning:

  1. With power switch in the “ Off” position, unplug power cord from wall outlet.
  2. Disconnect tubing from the air-inlet connector and set aside.
  3. Disassemble mouthpiece or mask from cap. Open nebulizer by turning cap counterclockwise and remove baffle.
  4. Wash all items, except tubing, in a hot water/dishwashing detergent solution. Rinse under hot tap water for 30 seconds to remove detergent residue. Allow to air dry.
  5. For reusable nebulizer only, it can be cleaned daily in dishwasher using top shelf or by following the above cleaning procedure.
  6. Drive Reusable Nebulizer is dishwasher safe, but do not place any Drive Disposable Nebulizer parts in an automatic dishwasher; doing so could cause damage.

  1. With power switch in the “Off ” position, unplug power cord from wall outlet.
  2. Wipe outside of the compressor cabinet with a clean damp cloth every few days to keep dust-free.
