Below you will find some clinical evidence highlighting the benefits of Vibrating Mesh Technology for Aerosol Drug Delivery.
Aerogen White Paper
Aerogen’s vibrating mesh technology, available within the Aerogen® Solo, Aerogen® Pro has been adopted for use across many areas of the hospital during a variety of ventilatory support. Clinical researchers have established its superior performance and a summary of these are below.
Practical strategies for a safe and effective delivery of aerosolized medications to patients with COVID-19 by Ari A
The purpose of this paper is to explain how to deliver aerosolized medications to mild-, sub- intensive, and intensive-care patients with COVID-19 and how to protect staff from exposure to exhaled drop lets during aerosol therapy
Reducing Aerosol-Related Risk of Transmission in the Era of COVID-19: An Interim Guidance Endorsed by the International Society of Aerosols in Medicine
Experts in the field of aerosol have put together a short review to address how aerosol might be safely administered with minimal risk to health care providers. This review was published by the Journal of Aerosols Medicine and Pulmonary Drug Delivery.
Vibrating Mesh Nebulizers in the Emergency Department by Dunne R.B. & Shortt S
This article looks at the Comparison of bronchodilator administraiton with Vibrating Mesh Nebuliser and Standard Jet Nebuliser in the Emergency department.
Pediatric Asthma by Cantu T. & Jenkins L.
This quality improvement plan compared salbutamol delivery with a vibrating mesh aerosol drug delivery device (Aerogen® Solo with Ultra; VM) and a large volume jet nebuliser (JN) in peadiatric patients with asthma or reactive airway disorder who presented to the ED with an acute exacerbation.
