|How does it work?||Products||FAQ||Order forms|
All PARI inhalation devices include at least the following components:
- a compressor: for creating compressed air
- a nebuliser: this is filled with the inhalation solution and aerosolised by the compressed air
These two parts are connected to each other by the connection tubing, which conveys the compressed air from the compressor to the nebuliser.
The compressed air supplied by the compressor passes through the nebuliser nozzle and creates the aerosol at the nozzle outlet. In the PARI LC SPRINT® Nebuliser, the nozzle attachment is fitted onto the nozzle. The nebuliser creates an aerosol consisting of variously sized droplets depending on the size and configuration of the nozzle attachment shield (these are coloured blue, red and yellow for easier identification).
The aerosol thus created can then be inhaled using the mouthpiece or a mask.
But what about my eFlow® rapid?
The eFlow® rapid delivers medications approved for inhalation deep into the lungs, rapidly and efficiently.
The heart of the patented technology is a perforated steel membrane. The aerosol is generated when the inhalation solution is forced through the perforated steel membrane, which is vibrating gently. (117kHz).

Here you’ll find a selection of frequently asked questions. If you can’t find a suitable question, please send us an E-mail or call Customer Service.
Your questions to the following categories:
The continuous nebulisers from PARI (LC SPRINT® and LC PLUS family) are equipped with a valve system that helps to reduce loss of medication significantly. It is most important to keep the mouthpiece in the mouth when breathing out. Inhaling with these nebulisers is very easy, since the nebulising process does not have to be synchronised with the breathing rhythm for them.
In general the following applies: given the enormous number of inhalation solutions that are available commercially for the treatment of various respiratory diseases, it is not possible to make any specific recommendations here. Your physician will make decisions regarding your treatment.
The following are entirely unsuitable for inhalation with these devices: cough syrups, mouth rinses, balsam preparations or drops that are used as embrocations or with hot water as a “vapour bath”. Essential oils or similar products are also unsuitable. Products of this kind are often sticky and viscous; they may impair the function of the device permanently (e. g. by clogging the nozzle). Moreover, many of these products contain essential oils, which can trigger an acute bronchial spasm (a sudden, involuntary constriction of the bronchial system accompanied by shortness of breath), similar to the effect of inhaling hypotonic solutions (e. g. distilled water).
Yes, when the baby mask is used for inhaling, it is essential to use the BABY Bend as well, because the baby mask does not have an expiratory valve. This means that if the mask fits tightly, the baby cannot exhale. The slots in the BABY Bend enable the used air to be exhaled.
Since babies often move their heads vigorously, the mask might slip off even if it were attached with rubber bands. Nebulising with a silicone mask is intended solely for babies and infants, and they must be supervised constantly by an adult when inhaling. The nebuliser should be held in the hand and replaced tightly over the child’s mouth and nose after every movement of the head.
All PARI compressors generate a certain amount of heat during normal use. The currently applicable standard DIN EN 60601-1 Part 1 for medical electrical equipment defines requirements regarding maximum permissible temperatures for electrically powered medical products. The corresponding tests on our devices were conducted by an external, accredited test laboratory. All of our compressors meet the specifications of the standard cited above.
Small amounts of condensation can form in the connection tubing as a result of air humidity and temperature fluctuations. After each nebulising session, you should always switch the compressor on again and blow the tube dry with the Nebuliser disconnected. The instructions for use contain a detailed description of this procedure.
After 200 operating hours or at least once a year. You should check the filter for contamination regularly and replace it sooner if necessary. The instructions for use contain a detailed description of this procedure.
This may be due to any of the following reasons:
- The nozzle insert in the nebuliser is missing
- Nozzle blocked (also possible with the LC SPRINT® family). Check the nozzle first. If there are crystalline deposits (e.g. lime residue) in the nozzle, it may be possible to remove them simply by squeezing the flexible nozzle with your thumb (however, this only works with the LC SPRINT® nozzle because it is flexible). For more stubborn blockage, it often helps to clean the nozzle again by boiling the nebuliser. This is also possible for cleaning the LC PLUS Nebuliser nozzle. With the PARI LL Nebuliser, you can also clean the nozzle gently with the nozzle cleaner supplied with it (in the nebuliser lower section). See instructions for use. Please note that the small holes must be poked through very carefully and only from the nozzle underside.
- The air-flow control on the PARI LL Nebuliser is not pushed up as far as it will go. Also check whether the air-flow control is attached to the nozzle securely. If it is not, press it firmly onto the nozzle and then try operating your nebuliser again.
- Not enough medication in the nebuliser. Make sure that the medication in the nebuliser reaches the fill mark. Minimum: 2ml, Maximum: 8ml.
You try to inhale – but the mouthpiece is "blocked"!
Has this ever happened to you? You try to inhale – but the mouthpiece is "blocked"! Do you have the feeling that you are not receiving any aerosol? This is not a fault in the nebuliser, it just shows that you have breathed in too quickly.
When you inhale using a nebuliser, it is much more effective to breathe in slowly than quickly, because this allows time for more of the active agent to penetrate deep into the lungs.
In order to provide the patient with information about his inspiratory flow, PARI developed the PIF Control (PIF = Peak Inspiratory Flow), which has been integrated in the following nebuliser:
The PIF Control is a feedback system:
If the inspiratory flow rate rises above 25 l/min, the inspiratory valve all but closes, leaving only a very small opening and so indicating that the patient has breathed in too quickly. In this way, the user learns to breathe slowly and regularly, thereby not only optimising the effect of the medication, but also preventing the small bronchi from collapsing, which is one of the particular dangers of COPD, for example.
If the valve does close, as you will notice due to the increased resistance when you breathe in, briefly stop inhaling, breathe gently for a moment, then start inhaling again, deeply and a little more slowly so that the valve remains open.

In the home, nebulisers and accessories (not the tubing) should only be disinfected by boiling or using a steam disinfector. There is no recommendation for chemical disinfectants in this situation.
Because rinsing only cleans the nebuliser, microorganisms are only eliminated if the nebuliser is disinfected by boiling. Please read the instructions for use on this subject.
It is very important that the eFlow rapid handset and aerosol head are cleaned thoroughly after each use. We have put together a document on caring for your eFlow rapid, and this can be accessed here. Please ensure you read the instructions for use.
