Best place to purchase hand held nebulizer

This is a question for everyone: Where do you get your neb supplies? I'm looking at getting one of the handheld nebs, but they are crazy expensive. Also, what's the best hand held neb? My portable neb's battery life is pretty bad at this point, so I'd either need to get a new battery or get a new portable neb.

    Dory-I has always purchased mine from JustNebulizers-great customer service and prices are pretty much in line with others. I recently purchased maintenance supplies from Nebology-they had a good deal on the tubing/mouth pieces/filters-already prepackaged from Pari.  I was pleased with the pricing and customer service for the order and would probably order from them again.

     I have a handheld neb-have had it for as long as I’ve had asthma.  It’s an omron that runs on 2 AA batteries.  I tried the flyp-wouldn’t recommend it for anything and I know others have ones that are rechargeable but my thing with the rechargeable one is this-if you don’t need it for a few weeks, how are you going to know it still has a charge when you do need it?  I keep an extra set of batteries in the case so i know it will always work when I need it.  The case for it is about the size of a sunglass case-hard sided(but covered in cloth) and I can keep 2 AA batteries and 2-3 vials of meds in it.  

    I also have a Pari TrekS that is my normal neb that I use daily when I’m not on extra nebs.  i love the battery pack and portability-I can walk all over the house doing stuff while I’m doing a neb.  

    As for the best neb, I think that’s a personal preference.  I’ve had a few brands and always go back to the Pari-I have 2 of the table top units (one at home for when I need extra nebs for days on end and one that stays at work).  I have 3 TrekS that I’ve bought over the years-the batteries have died on 2 of them so I keep on in the car with the car plug and the other one is just about totally dead-the switch is going out on it.  I can’t complain-it’s almost 10 years old.  I doubt I would ever buy anything but a Pari again-I’ve just been too pleased with them and they really last.

    Dory, I, too, have gotten my nebulizers from JustNebulizers.com.  I have the Pari Trek S portable one and love it.  The battery did die on my first one when I was using it many times a day so now I keep it as a backup since it still has the car adapter and the plug in so I can use it. 

    For handheld nebulizers I have the Philips InnoSpire Go.  Have used it a few times when out and about.  It is very quiet, hardly hear it.  Easy to clean with just tap water.  It has a rechargeable battery which is fine as long as you have power. 

    Recently got the Omron Mesh Nebulizer which runs on two AA batteries.  Have not used it yet so can't speak to how it works but I wanted to have a handheld nebulizer that could just run on batteries that I can replace if the power is out for some reason.  

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Dory, I’ve used direct home medical for my table top and portable neb and always been happy. I agree with lynn and Lisa, the pari trek s is amazing!

    Hi Dory, I've ordered from just nebulizers never had a problem with them. I Have the hand held omron one. 

     

    it is expensive to replace parts every 6 months but they do have sales on them.

    Hi, Lynn … just curious about the pros and cons of the Flyp. I'd seen the Flyp and wondered about recommending it to my dad, who likes to be on the go but has to neb frequently. I'd thought about it because it looked like it would fit into his shirt pocket and he might be more likely to actually take it with him.

    Are any of your portable AA battery nebs small enough to fit in a man's shirt pocket?

    I did a trial for the flyp and was so excited about it but in the end, it was REALLY un-reliable and just didn't work well.  The instructions that came with it said the light would blink when the battery needed charging-well, mine went from full charge to totally dead-no warning at all.  I thought maybe I just missed it the first time but nope, it did it on me 3 times.  At least with my omron, I can carry extra batteries so I don't have that worry.  The last thing you need is for your neb to be dead when you need it!

    I haven't yet. I'm debating between the Omran and the Innospire Go. I'm leaning towards the Omran just because of the price and battery operated. But not 100% sure yet though.
