I’ve used nebulisers for years, the primary nebulisers I had have been all mains powered, they have been loud they usually have been something however moveable. Lately although as expertise has moved on, not solely have they develop into smaller and extra moveable, they’re virtually silent. Sure there are nonetheless nebulisers on the market that are nonetheless massive and noisy (they usually do an ideal job) however these smaller, quieter moveable nebulisers have develop into way more well-liked and why wouldn’t they, you possibly can match them in backpacks, purses and even in your pocket, they can be utilized anyplace and they’re very discreet. I’ve written about and reviewed nebulisers beforehand, hyperlinks to which could be discovered under:
Nebuliser Posts and Evaluations
Final week I acquired one other moveable nebuliser to assessment and so after utilizing it for a few week now, right here goes……
I’ll begin this assessment by sharing a number of of my private ideas on nebulisers and slightly bit of recommendation.
1) Solely buy one if that you may be prescribed the remedy to make use of within the nebuliser.
2) Make sure that the nebuliser that you just select is able to delivering the remedy prescribed.
three) Resolve whether or not you need or want a conveyable or a mains powered nebuliser. If you are going to buy a conveyable nebuliser resolve whether or not you favor a chargeable mannequin or one which works from replaceable AA or AAA batteries.
four) Keep in mind that the nebuliser would possibly sooner or later be wanted to avoid wasting your life, purchase an honest make and mannequin from a good seller (anyone similar to Evergreen or your excessive avenue pharmacy). Keep in mind issues can go unsuitable with them, you might have to buy substitute elements and many others. Don’t purchase low cost overseas unbranded fashions from China off of EBay.
5) Commonly clear / preserve your nebuliser.
6) In case you are a heavy consumer, look to buy 2 nebulisers, a mains powered one for dwelling use and a conveyable (which will also be used as a spare).
So after saying the entire above, the nebuliser that I’m reviewing is Chinese language, unbranded and out there on EBay (amongst different locations) for about £30. Due to this fact primarily based by myself recommendation I shouldn’t like this Nebuliser, I ought to have a number of considerations about it and I shouldn’t suggest it, however right here goes.
So what can we get for our cash?
2x Masks (1x grownup,1x youngster)
1x USB cable (to cost the nebuliser)
1x Case (far greater than wanted)
1x Instruction Guide
The precise nebuliser that I’ve has the corporate / producer title Feellife who’re a Chinese language primarily based firm. Nonetheless I’ve discovered many similar nebulisers on the web which don’t have the title Feellife on it.
The nebuliser may be very small (three.7×three.7×9.6cm), gentle (110g) and feels strong and nicely made. On the prime of the nebuliser is a screw cap which solely wants a half flip to be eliminated. This enables the remedy to be poured in. As soon as the cap is changed all you’ll want to do is press the facility button (this has a useful sliding cowl to stop by chance turning it on). You should utilize the nebuliser through a mouth piece (useful when travelling) or face masks. I discovered 5mg / 2.5ml ventolin nebule solely took 5 minutes to complete. The nebuliser additionally has an automated minimize out after 10 minutes. It simply managed the ventolin, offering a gradual but highly effective mist and left hardly any residue in any respect. The nebuliser has a in-built rechargeable battery which is charged through the provided micro usb lead. It takes 1 hour to completely cost and that ought to give sufficient energy for 1 hour (approx 12 nebulisations) working time.
The complete specs are as follows:
Treatment Cup Capability:10 ml
Voltage: DC four.eight V / DC 5.0V with USB cable
Charging Time: 1 hour
Working Time: 1 hour
Energy Consumption: < four.0W
Working Frequency:110 kHz ±10 kHz
Nebulization Fee: > zero.35 ml/min
MMAD: 2.5 ± 30% μm
Particle Measurement:1-5 μm
Sound Degree: < 29 dB
Up to now so good, however how does it match up alongside different moveable nebulisers?
Most likely the most well-liked and well-known moveable neb is the Omron Micron Air (personally I’m not a large fan) and my very own private favorite the Philips Respironics Innospire Go. For a visible comparability see the image under (L to R – Feellife, Omron, Philips)
As could be seen, the Feellife is the smallest of the three. The Omron is pictured with out the mouth piece which is fitted to the highest whereas each the Feellife and Philips have the mouth piece popping out of the entrance of the nebuliser. Personally I favor the mouth piece to be on the entrance. The Omron barely extra fiddly to arrange and has extra removable elements (not ideally suited if you’re struggling an assault and want the neb urgently as compared each the Feellife and Philips are straightforward to arrange and use. The Philips is the quickest of the three, the Omron is the one 1 which makes use of replaceable batteries, the opposite 2 have rechargeable batteries.
All three are just about silent and use related expertise to work. The Feellife is by far the most cost effective of the three, at roughly £30 it prices a few third of the worth of the Omron, in the meantime the Philips is available in at £140. With the Omron and the Philips you get the added bonus of a model title, warranties, substitute elements and many others, the identical can’t be mentioned of the Feellife.
Finally you get what you pay for, I’ve not often had any points with any Omron or Philips nebuliser however when I’ve, they’ve been simply and rapidly rectified. I’d recommend if something went unsuitable with the Feellife you spherical up having to purchase a brand new one.
So can I like to recommend the Feellife nebuliser?
Sure I can however solely as a second machine, my considerations as already talked about beforehand are how dependable are low cost Chinese language nebulisers off of EBay. For those who use / want a nebuliser you want to have the ability to depend on it and though up to now this machine has labored nice I can’t vouch for it long run. At £30 it’s not the tip of the world if it doesn’t final for years, it seems to be an honest little bit of equipment, it appears to be like good and it’s so small that if suits in my pocket. As could be seen under the scale is corresponding to my inhaler.
So it’s nice to make use of as a conveyable / journey nebuliser, if it will get broken or misplaced it’s not the tip of the world, so long as you could have one other one at dwelling.
Personally I nonetheless favor the Philips Innospire Go, it’s faster, as straightforward to make use of, as gentle and regardless of the upper worth you could have the piece of thoughts that you’ve s high quality machine.
In case you are a searching for a dependable, hardworking nebuliser and it’s to be your just one I believe that I’d have considerations concerning the Feellife (solely time will inform) however as a spare / again up journey nebuliser it seems to be well worth the danger. I like the design, it’s easy to make use of, extremely moveable and really discreet. One small gripe I’ve about with virtually each moveable nebuliser although is why do they provide such an enormous case with what’s such a small (and subsequently moveable) nebuliser?
If anyone else has one in every of these nebulisers please let me know what your ideas are.
Lastly if you’re seeking to buy a nebuliser or want any recommendation then the very best place to go is Evergreen Nebulisers. They inventory many differing kinds, kinds and fashions together with varied equipment and spare elements. They supply in a short time and likewise supply nice neutral recommendation and good after gross sales. Go to their web site on the hyperlink under or give them a name.
