1.  Introduction

Thank you for purchasing the 

AirMed 1000 Compressor Nebuliser

. It is a  

compact medical device designed to efficiently deliver physician prescribed 
medication to the bronchial lung passages. With the correct care and use, it 
will provide you with many years of reliable treatment. 

This product is developed for the successful treatment of asthma, allergies 
and other respiratory disorders. It creates a stream of air that travels through 
a clear tube to the nebuliser. When air enters the nebuliser, it will convert the 
prescribed medication into aerosol mist for easy inhalation.

Your Compressor Nebuliser should be used under the supervision of a licensed 
physician and/or a respiratory therapist. We encourage you to thoroughly read 
this handbook to learn about the features of this product. Any use of this  
product other than its intended use should always be avoided.

12.  EMC Declaration

With the increased number of electronic devices such as PCs and mobiles, 

medical devices in use may be susceptible to electromagnetic interference from 

these devices. Which may result in incorrect operation of the medical device 

and create a potentially unsafe situation. Medical devices should also not  

interfere with other devices.

In order to regulate the requirements for EMC with the aim to prevent unsafe 

product situations, the EN60601-1-2 standard has been implemented. This 

standard defines the levels of immunity to electromagnetic interferences as well 

as maximum levels of electromagnetic emissions for medical devices. 

Medical devices manufactured by Clement Clarke International Ltd conform to 

this EN60601-1-2 standard for both immunity and emissions. 

Nevertheless, special precautions need to be observed: 

  The use of accessories and cables other than those specified by  

  Clement Clarke Int. Ltd, with the exception of cables sold by Clement Clarke  

  International Ltd. as replacement parts for internal components, may result in  

  increased emission or decreased immunity of the device. 

  The medical devices should not be used adjacent to or stacked with other  

  equipment. If adjacent or stacked use is unavoidable, the medical device  

  should be seen to operate normally as it should in this situation. 

Further guidance regarding the EMC environment (in accordance with 

EN60601-1-2) in which the device should be used is available at
