A nebulizer is a small electronic medical device that turns water, saline, and medicines into a fine, cool mist. The user connects a tube to the nebulizer at one end, and breathes the mist through a face mask. The mist goes deep into the lungs to relieve a number of ailments and symptoms.
While hydrogen peroxide is safe to use to clean your nebulizer, it is far from clear whether hydrogen peroxide can be inhaled safely even at very low doses. You should ONLY use hydrogen peroxide in a nebulizer under the guidance of a trusted doctor, and even then you must be extremely careful that you are using the right concentration (undiluted 35% “food grade” hydrogen peroxide, for example, can cause burns on your skin – you do not want that in your lungs). We at Blue Echo Care cannot give medical advice regarding the use of any prescription or OTC drugs in our nebulizers and strongly urge you to only use them under a physician’s directions.
Yes, our nebulizers are FDA and ISO approved.
Yes! Nebulizers are often recommended for children and infants over metered-dose inhalers (MDIs) because of their ease of use. All of our nebulizers include masks for both adults and children. If it helps to soothe them, a child can even continue to use a pacifier while the mask is in place. While all of our nebulizers are suitable for children and adults, look for our new, kid-friendly Weezy Pig Nebulizer coming soon!
Doctors often recommend nebulizers for patients with asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, certain kinds of pneumonia, and other ailments of the lungs, bronchial tubes, and bronchioles.

Possibly. As you know, the situation around coronavirus and COVID-19 is changing daily. Doctors and researchers are working tirelessly to test treatments that might prove therapeutic. We aren’t doctors here, but we know that this device is primarily used for lung ailments, and that COVID-19 often attacks the lungs. Anecdotally, we have a friend whose doctor gave her albuterol to use in her nebulizer to treat her COVID-19 infection (she’s recovering, thank you). People describe the lungs (particularly the alveolar walls) of COVID-19 patients as dried out and hardened, and it seems like cool mist might help with that. You MUST ask your doctor about the best course of action in the event that you come down with symptoms of COVID-19. There is some evidence that the aerosol created by the nebulizer might distribute the virus a bit farther than the normal 6 feet, so just to be safe, anyone sharing the same house with a COVID-19 patient should stay out of the sick room while the nebulizer is in use and for 30 minutes after.
Our nebulizer can be used with plain purified water (NOT tap water), over-the-counter saline solutions (typically 0.9% saline), or a number of prescription medications. Some of the most common include anticholinergics, antibiotics, mucolytics, anti-inflammatories such as corticosteroids, and beta-agonists such as albuterol. For more, check out our blog post, Top 6 Medicines Doctors Prescribe for Use with Nebulizers. Of course, always check with your doctor before beginning any nebulizer treatment.
No. You do need a prescription for some of the medicines typically used in a nebulizer though. Some insurance companies put pressure on doctors to prescribe more expensive models, which is partly why we started selling our nebulizer at a reasonable price that’s accessible to people whose insurance might not cover medical devices.
Our nebulizer is ultrasonic, which means the fine particle spray is created by high-frequency vibrations.
No, though it’s not silent. It makes a very gentle, quiet whooshing noise, kind of like a humidifier.
Basically, with a nebulizer you can administer medicine, and with a humidifier you can’t. Using just purified water with a nebulizer and mask is a little bit like using a humidifier, but the mist goes deeper into the lungs.
You should replace the filter every time you use the nebulizer. All our nebulizers come with at least 20 filters and you can order more separately. To replace the filter, remove the plastic cap on the bottom right of the compressor located underneath the tubing connection. Remove the old filter, put in a new one, and replace the plastic cap. If you are unable to do this with your fingers, you may GENTLY use a flathead screwdriver.
You should wash all the plastic tubing, mask, medicine cup, and other accessories after every time you use them. To clean, soak plastic tubing, mask or mouthpiece, and solution cup in warm, soapy water for 15 minutes. Remove and soak in warm water for another 15 minutes then let air dry.
Yes, all of our accessories and nebulizers are interchangeable.
No. We do not recommend the use of colloidal silver with our nebulizer. It corrodes the tubing, slows down the function of the piston compressor, and ruins the filter. Using colloidal silver will significantly reduce the life of this product.
