The Omron air filters are used in your nebuliser to ensure that the air intake is clean and free from dust.
To change your air filter, simply remove the filter cover on your nebuliser, dispose of the old filter and replace with a new one and refit the cover.
Why replace the filter?
Replacing the filter on your 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!
The air filter in your Omron nebuliser should be replaced every 6 - 8 weeks, depending on usage, to keep a clean air flow into the nebuliser.
The Omron Air Filters - Small are compatible with the following Omron nebulisers:
- Omron C801
