Why is there no mist coming out of my nebulizer?

If there is no mist coming out of your nebulizer it probably means that your compressor isn't functioning properly or that particles too small for you to see have attached themselves to key parts of  the nebulizer mechanism and are preventing it from working properly. Perform the following:

- Clean and disinfect your nebulizer by boiling it for 10 minutes following the instructions provided under Cleaning And Disinfecting Your Equipment.

- Ensure your nebulizer is assembled according to the manufacturers instructions.

- Ensure that the filters on your compressor are clean and replaced regularly.

- Confirm that flow is being produced from your compressor when it is turned on.

If none of these interventions work, you may need to contact the manufacturer or your health care provider for further assistance.
