Medline has added to its respiratory portfolio TurboMist, a small volume nebulizer that delivers 2.5 times more medication per minute than a standard nebulizer – nearly 70% faster – significantly reducing treatment times to just three minutes.

Northfield, Ill., May 23, 2024Medline today announced the latest addition to its respiratory care portfolio, the Hudson RCI TurboMist small volume nebulizer. Delivering medication treatments in as quick as three minutes, TurboMist is designed to be the fastest small volume nebulizer on the market.

Patient demand for nebulizer treatments is high, with respiratory therapists handling approximately 25 treatments per shift. At the same time, staffing challenges have made care delivery more difficult, leading to stacked or missed treatments for patients. Traditional nebulizers can take at least 10 minutes to provide treatment, stressing the need for devices with shorter delivery time.

TurboMist delivers 2.5 times more medication per minute than a standard nebulizer, significantly reducing treatment times to just three minutes – nearly 70% faster than a standard nebulizer – empowering respiratory therapists and clinicians to deliver faster, more cost-effective care. Additional benefits of TurboMist include:

  • Better deposition: Faster medication delivery with an optimal respirable fraction helps speed patient relief;
  • Improved patient compliance: Faster treatment means less time holding the device, helping make the experience easier for patients, and reducing incomplete treatments;
  • Greater comfort and efficacy: Comfortable swivel mouthpiece to help reduce mask use and works while sitting or supine;
  • Suitable for use with patients aged five and up in a hospital or homecare setting.

“Respiratory therapists are constantly adapting and innovating to solve challenges to better care for patients, and we strive to innovate right beside them in order to strengthen the respiratory therapy sector. Over the years, we have developed robust solutions to meet every respiratory need, from hospital to home,” said James Donegan, a registered respiratory therapist and Medline clinical specialist. “We believe that our newest solution, TurboMist, will fulfill a need in the market to drive efficiencies with shorter medication delivery times and an enhanced patient experience.”

The addition of TurboMist is an extension of the company’s commitment to taking an innovative approach to growing its respiratory portfolio and empowering best practices across the continuum of care. Product categories include oxygen delivery, medication delivery, bronchial hygiene, ventilation products, airway management, and minor capital.
