  • Rate of nebulisation adapted for children
  • Virtual valve technology

  • Small and compact device
  • Cute character toy included (and who wouldn't be happy to see this little critter?).  This is reusable.

CONS

  • 46dB can still seem quite loud to a very nervous child or baby

VERDICT

If you work in a clinical area where you regularly nebulise children, this is a great piece of kit to add to your collection.  However, be aware that nebulisation rate is significantly lower than with standard devices.
