How do you take care of a nebulizer?

ANSWER

Proper care prevents infection. Clean and disinfect your asthma nebulizer equipment. Cover the compressor with a clean cloth when not in use. Keep it clean by wiping it with a clean, damp cloth as needed. Don't put the air compressor on the floor either for treatments or for storage. Check the air compressor's filter, and replace or clean it according to the directions from the supplier.
