How to Use a Nebulizer : How to Get Nebulizer Ready to Use

By Adem Lewis / in , , , , , , , , , , , /

Now we’re getting ready to actually use the
nebulizer. The first step of course is you’re going to be plugging it into the wall and
you want to make sure that the outlet that you have is going to be able to support the
needs of the machine. Obviously this is a 2 prong plug right here, the outlet that I
have has a capability to take a 3 prong but it is not needed in this situation. So again
to make sure that you have it correctly, it goes right in there. And as I’ve mentioned
before, make sure that the cord is not laying on anything or near anything that is putting
out a lot of heat because that of course could damage it; melt the plastic and all that and
that would not be safe. Then the next thing we’re going to do is to take this plastic
tubing and connect it to the machine and in this particular type of tubing, both ends
are the same. This may not be the case for all nebulizers so you want to take them next
to each other, look at them and see if there’s any difference. But this one you can plug
either end into the machine. As you see right here, here is the part to plug it into. You
want to make sure that you’re not having to force it on. It should go on pretty easily.
You want to make sure there’s a snug fit there so that there’s not any air that is going
to escape. This is a good time too to just inspect your hose and make sure that it is
not particularly dry, brittle, cracked, torn, that kind of thing. As you can see this one
is in pretty good shape and I’ve connected there. Then we’ve got this part ready to connect
to the part of the nebulizer that holds the medicine. What I’m going to do now is because
the next step is going to be handling the medicine is I’m going to wash my hands which
is always a good idea when you’re handling any kind of medicine. And then we’re ready
to put the medicine in.

  1. No, he's right, this is completely pathetic. This video wouldn't save anybodies life, and if anything, would prolong their asthma attack or whatever.

  2. Thorough instructions would have made this a much better video. Washing your hands is always a great idea. However, you might have stressed that wrists are part of a hand washing routine. How do you wash your hands with your sweater extending over your hands. You could have shown various masks or tube like inhalers and the actual mounting. Oh forget it I will do a video myself. I will add you have a lovely house and you are quite stylish. Try makeup videos instead. Where were those expert medical tips?

  3. Describing how to hook up each component to the machine , and what they are for would have been a MUCH better video.. instead you waste time talking about how to plug a plug into an outlet, and not to melt the electrical cord……really?? then you spend time showing us how to wash your hands…lol, and just so you know, im pretty sure EVERYONE knows how to plug the plastic tubing up… its the medicine end of the system that most people need help with figuring how to hook up….. what a waste of 1:46…
