Review : Omron NE C28 Nebulizer

Two years ago when my son was born, he was suspected of having an asthma. Having asthma at a small age is very dreadful for a mom like me especially if he might have attacks on wee hours in the morning. So we decided to get our own nebulizer. We were looking around for nebulizers but left J to decide what brand to get and he got Omron. Below are some advantages of owning a nebulizer.
  • Prevention of Nosocomial Infection. Your nebulizer is for your personal use so you don't have to worry of getting infection acquired from the hospital or cross contamination of infection from other patients. 
  • Saves a lot of money. Nebulization costs p150 in provinces and roughly p300 here in metro and depending on the type of medicine the doctor prescribes also. 
  • Convenience. You can nebulize your child at your own time depending on the sleeping pattern and you won't have to worry on getting his nebulization finished even when your child is cranky because a patient is waiting for their turn. You don't have to rush your child to the nearest health care facility also.


Omron has been in the market for years now and I must say they have done wonderful innovations to their products when it comes to health care equipments. Their equipment designs are made to be more compact, handy and easy to use. What used to be the size of a battery of a car is now the size a doctor's bag. 

Key Features:

  • Includes an adult and child mask which fits your toddler.
  • It comes with a mouthpiece so the fumes will go straight from the mouth to the lungs.
  • The sound is minimal what used to be a terrifying high pitched sound of a compressor. 
  • Handy for a size of a doctor's bag so it can be brought anywhere.
  • The inhalation cup is calibrated and holds up to 7ml of medicine. So you don't have to worry if you are mixing medications. 
  • Lightweight which only weighs 1.9kg compared to the old nebulizers. 
Considerations:
  • Consult your doctor before nebulizing your child. 
  • Measure the medication properly according to doctor's order.
  • Take slow deep breaths to allow the medicine to flow into the airways.
  • Sit in an upright position to ensure proper flow of medication.
  • Wash the inhalation cup, mouthpiece and mask before and after use with soap and water.
  • Do not put medicine more than 7ml in the inhalation cup.
  • Check for medications expiry date and crystallization and discard immediately. 
  • Check the compressor's air filter and change as needed.
