The Medix Turboneb from Clement Clarke is a very cool running compressor designed for constant use in a hospital or clinic. It will nebulise any prescribed solution and certainly comes into its own when using the thicker, stickier antibiotics and steroid solutions. Conversely a few customers do feel it is just too powerful for bronchodilators alone, saying itʼs like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
Like the Econoneb, the functional design of the case incorporates a carry handle and a large on/off switch which is easy to operate even if you have a touch of arthritis in your fingers.
Although the manufacturer does not supply accessories as standard with this model, for your convenience we always include a complimentary Medix nebuliser kit with facemask.
Medix nebulisers require an annual service. Please contact us for details of your nearest service agent.
The Medix Turboneb is suitable for use with a tracheostomy or a laryngectomy and is compatible with our tracheostomy mask. Please contact us at the time of order and we will be happy to include a tracheostomy mask free of charge with your nebuliser if required.

The Medix Nebuliser Kit will need to be replaced every three months to ensure the nebuliser continues to perform efficiently. The kit includes an air tube, nebuliser chamber and a face mask/mouthpiece.
The Medix Medication Chamber should be rinsed after each use and replaced every three months.
The Medix Air Tube should be replaced every three months. Please note that the Medix tube should not be immersed in water as it is difficult to thoroughly dry. If there is condensation visible in the tubing, disconnect the tube from the nebuliser chamber after treatment and allow the compressor to continue blowing air through the tube until all the condensate has been blown out.
It is recommended for hygiene that the Adult face mask or the Child face mask be cleaned in warm soapy water after every use and replaced every 3 months.
The Medix Mouthpiece offers the most effective method of respiratory drug delivery when using a Medix nebuliser. The mouthpiece is angled to allow for ease of use and to help reduce spillage, and is the perfect fit for the Medix medication chamber. Manufactured from medical grade plastic, it is recommended that the mouthpiece should be changed every 3 months.
The Air Inlet Filters will need to be changed every three months and Outlet Filter every twelve months.
Why replace the filter?
Replacing the filter on your Medix nebuliser is probably most important aspect of nebuliser maintenance. It is as important as replacing your nebuliser set, since without a good flow of filtered air coming from the compressor, you will not receive an effective therapy.
Old filters block the air flow to the compressor, reducing its output which diminishes its effectiveness.
Blocked filters also put a strain on the motor and increases the risk of a breakdown.
Filters cannot be cleaned – Throw the old filter away – don't wash it!
Your Medix nebuliser inlet filter should be changed every three months or when discolouration occurs and the outlet filter every twelve months in order to keep your nebuliser performing consistently.
