Abstract

Data are presented on the relationships between air flow rates and pressures generated by 15 brands of domiciliary compressor currently used in the United Kingdom to drive jet nebulisers. Since compressor brands vary widely in power, care must be taken in the selection of appropriate models for efficient respiratory therapy.
