Description

The Omron C801 Compressor Nebulizer is an everyday compressor nebulizer for treatment of lower airways respiratory diseases like asthma. It has a low sound level so it allows for a very quiet and comfortable operation.

The Omron C801 Compressor Nebulizer is the smallest, lightest, most convenient tabletop nebulizer. Weighing less than 10 oz., it is extremely portable, giving you the ability to manage and treat yourself at your convenience, wherever you may be. The Omron C801 Compressor Nebulizer is perfect for international travel as it includes a multi-voltage changer that can operate on all voltages ranging from 100 to 240 volts. When therapy is finished, it is small enough to be tucked away in a cabinet or drawer.

Despite its size, Omron’s advanced design and engineering allows the Omron C801 Compressor Nebulizer to administer medication as effectively as table top models three times its size. Because of Omron’s exclusive Virtual Valve Technology (V.V.T.), the Omron C801 Compressor Nebulizer is smaller and lighter than most tabletop nebulizers. The Virtual Valve Technology allows the nebulizer to produce particles as fine as 5 um MMD, assuring optimum absorption even in the narrow branches of the lower airways for effective inhalation of medication.

The Omron C801 Compressor Nebulizer contains:

  • Nebulizer kit.
  • Air Tube.
  • Adult Mask.
  • Child Mask.
  • Air Filter.
  • AC Adapter
  • Warranty Card.
  • Instruction Manual.
  • Storage Bag.

Uses

The Omron C801 Compressor Nebulizer was developed for the successful treatment of asthma, allergies and other respiratory disorders. The compressor forces air to the nebulizer. When the air enters the nebulizer, it converts the prescribed medication into an aerosol of microscopic droplets that can easily be inhaled. It has a low sound level so it allows for a very quiet and comfortable operation.

The Omron C801 Compressor Nebulizer is intended to provide air to the pneumatic nebulizer in order to aerosolize medications for inhalation by the patient for respiratory disorders. The system is designed for use with pediatric (defined by the prescribed medication) and adult patients in the home, hospital, and sub-acute settings.

Application

Preparing the Nebulizer for use

Insert the power plug on the AC adapter into the power connector on the back side of the compressor. Plug the AC adapter into the electrical outlet.

Lift up the mouthpiece and the cap to remove them from the nebulizer kit.

Rotate the inhalation top counter clockwise and lift to remove the inhalation top from the medication cup.

Add the correct amount of prescribed medication to the medication cup.

Do not add more than 7ml of medication to the medication cup. Scales on the nebulizer kit are for reference only. The scale on the outside of the medication cup is with no baffle in place. Please use the scale on your syringe or vial for accurate measurement of medication.

Make sure that the baffle is securely attached to the inhalation top.

Place the inhalation top on the medication cup. Align the protrusion on the inhalation top with the indentation on the medication cup. Turn the inhalation top clockwise until securely closed.

Attach the desired inhalation accessory.

Using the Mouthpiece: Place the cap on the medication cup over the inhalation air inlet. Attach the mouthpiece. Place the cap on the medication cup when using the mouthpiece. Using the cap with the mouthpiece will reduce the amount of medication that is discharged into the air.

Using the nosepiece (Optional): Place the cap on the medication cup over the inhalation air inlet. Attach the nosepiece. Place the cap on the medication cup when using the nosepiece. Using the cap with the nosepiece will reduce the amount of medication that is discharged into the air.

Using the Child Mask (Optional): Place the cap on the medication cup over the inhalation air inlet. Attach the child mask. If the amount of aerosol is too small, it is not necessary to place the cap.

Using the Adult Mask (Optional): Attach the adult mask to the inhalation top. If the amount of aerosol is too much, place the cap on the medication cup over the inhalation air inlet.

Attaching the air tube

Twist the air tube plug slightly and push it firmly into the air tube connector on the upper side of the compressor.

Twist the air tube plug slightly and push it firmly into the air tube connector on the bottom of the nebulizer kit. Keep the nebulizer kit upright when attaching the air tube. Medication may spill out of the medication cup.

Use the nebulizer kit holder as a temporary holder for the nebulizer kit. Align the mark on the unit with the mark on the nebulizer kit.

Using the device

Hold the nebulizer kit in front of you. Do not tilt the nebulizer kit so the angle of the kit is greater than 45˚. Medication may flow into the mouth. Do not shake the nebulizer kit while using the device.

Turn the power switch to the on position. As the compressor starts, nebulization begins and aerosol is generated. To stop nebulization, turn the power switch to the off position. Limit use to 20 minutes at a time, and allow a 40 minutes interval before using the device again. When using the device, the main unit may become hot. Do not touch the main unit for other than necessary operation such as turning off the power while nebulizing.

Inhale medication as instructed by your physician or licensed healthcare practitioner.

Using the mouthpiece: Insert the mouthpiece into your mouth. Inhale medication breathing normally. Exhale normally through the mouthpiece.

Using the nosepiece (Optional): Inhale the medication through the nosepiece as illustrated. Exhale through the mouth.

Using the child mask or the adult mask (Optional): Place the mask over the nose and mouth. Pull the elastic strap over the head. Gently pull on the strap to secure the mask over the nose and mouth. Inhale the medication. Exhale normally through the mask.

Complete the treatment.

Turn the power switch to the off position. The compressor turns off and nebulization stops.

Disconnect the air tube from the nebulizer kit. Hold the air tube plug and gently pull down to disconnect the air tube plug from the air tube connector on the bottom of the nebulizer kit.

Check the air tube. No condensation or moisture should remain in the air tube.

If any condensation or moisture remains in the air tube, remove the moisture from the air tube. Follow the directions below:

Make sure the air tube is still connected to the air tube connector on the upper side of the compressor.

Press the power switch on. The compressor will start and pump air through the air tube to expel the moisture.

Press the power switch again to turn the compressor off.

Disconnect the air tube from the compressor. Hold the air tube plug and gently pull the air tube plug off the air tube connector on the upper side of the compressor.

Unplug the AC adapter from the electrical outlet.

Cleaning after each use

Following cleaning instructions after each use will prevent any remaining medication in the bottle from drying resulting in the device not nebulizing effectively and will help prevent infections.

Wash the nebulizer parts after each use. Dry the parts immediately after washing.

Remove the inhalation accessory (mouthpiece, optional masks, or optional nosepiece) from the nebulizer kit.

Disconnect the air tube from the nebulizer kit.

Gently twist the inhalation top counter clockwise and lift to separate the nebulizer into two sections.

Discard remaining medication in the medication cup. Always dispose of any remaining medication in the medication cup after each use. Use fresh medication each time you use the device.

Rinse all the parts with hot tap water.

Hand dry or air dry in a clean environment using a soft, clean, lint-free cloth.

Assemble the nebulizer kit and store it in a dry bag.

Daily disinfecting

Disinfect the nebulizer kit and mouthpiece, or optional masks or optional nosepiece after the last treatment of the day. To disinfect the parts, use one of the methods described below:

Use a commercially available disinfectant. Follow the instructions provided by the disinfectant manufacturer.

Submerge the parts in the cleansing solution for the specified period.

Remove the parts and discard the solution.

Rinse the parts with clean hot tap water, shake off excess water and allow to air dry in a clean environment. Parts may be boiled between 15 to 20 minutes. After boiling, carefully remove the parts, shake off excess water and allow to air dry in a clean environment. Do not boil air tube, air filter, air filter cover and optional masks.
