The Omron C28P durable mains operated compressor is a good, cost effective choice for the home as it is suitable for use with a wide range of prescribed solutions and offers everything necessary for efficient drug delivery.
The C28P, when coupled with the new VVT ( Variable Valve Technology) nebuliser chamber provided, produces a very small particle size with minimal prescribed solution residue, meaning more aerosol is available for you to inhale, bringing you the benefit of a shorter nebulisation time.
This compact, smooth running unit has a water resistant case which is easy to wipe clean, and packs neatly away into its handy carry bag when not in use.
Omron nebulisers do not require an annual service.
The Omron C28P 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.

Why replace the filter?
Replacing the filter on your Omron 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 Omron nebuliser inlet filter should be changed every 6 - 8 weeks or when discolouration occurs in order to keep your nebuliser performing consistently.
