Multiple handsets can be disinfected all at once at the end of the day

Patients will receive a new ALTERA Nebulizer Handset with each shipment of CAYSTON. To save time, patients with multiple handsets can use a different one for each of their daily doses, wash them after use, but wait to disinfect them all at once at the end of the day.

Patients will receive 2 handsets in first shipment, then 1 handset every other shipment.

Cleaning and Disinfecting

To reduce the risk of infection and ensure proper operation, the Altera Nebulizer Handset should be cleaned and dried as soon as possible after each use and disinfected before it’s used again.

Disassemble the ALTERA Nebulizer Handset and rinse its parts under warm, running tap water to clean it.

Disinfect the ALTERA Nebulizer Handset by boiling it in distilled water or using Control III®, a chemical disinfectant.

Allow the ALTERA Nebulizer Handset to dry.

Multiple handsets may be disinfected all at once at the end of the day.

Sam, treated with CAYSTON

“I like having a battery-powered nebulizer; I can take it with me when I need to and I don't need an electric outlet to set up.”
