Until recently I have always been a huge fan of the Omron Microair. For 6/7 years this nebuliser has been my main nebuliser. I simply loved it, it met all my needs and I used is successfully in all types of environments and settings quite happily. During the summer my darling little Microair started to show its age and so with great regret decided it was time for a new one. Obviously with my success with the Omron Microair the replacement could only be another Omron Microair. Well what a massive disappointment the replacement has proved to be, frequently it stopped mid stream, regularly I had to tap the side of the mains unit gently to get the medication to flow to the mesh cap, and the only way I could guarantee it would work was to clean it in boiling water as per manufacturer's instructions. Not exactly possible when you are on a train for example half way to London. Something that was never a problem with my original (as long as it was also cleaned regularly). Evergreen who I have purchased the Omron Microair have been wonderful, but sadly I cannot say the same of Omron UK, who gave me load of clap trap today and described their product as ""delicate,"" which I thought was rather strange, since they advertise on their website that it can be popped in your bag or briefcase, hardly the way to advertise something if you consider your product delicate!
Anyway I am now leaving the issue in the capable hands of Evergreen, but I am wondering if I have just been unfortunate or have others discovered that the Omron Microair hasn't lived up to their expectations.
