The Inspiron Nebuliser 002305 with air entrainment was assessed as a gas delivery device in a continuous positive airway pressure system. Inspired oxygen concentrations, total gas flows and pressures within the system were measured over a range of settings, with and without positive and expiratory pressure. Inspired oxygen concentrations and total flows were completely disrupted when a positive and expiratory pressure valve was applied, and the system failed to generate continuous positive airway pressure. We would not therefore recommend the Inspiron nebuliser as a gas delivery system for continuous positive airway pressure.
