Product Overview


 The two-tube Aero/Vent™ Max Radioaerosol Lung Imaging System is an upgrade to the legendary Aero/Vent™ Plus.  This easy-to-use system combines drop-in kit convenience with maximum shielding and the scuba-style Safety Shield™ Mouthpiece for unsurpassed protection.  Unidirectional airflow provides dosing in approximately 2-3 minutes, fully medicated breaths and the elimination of breathing resistance to improve throughput of critical patients.  Like the classic Aero/Vent™ Plus, the Aero/Vent™Max delivers sub-micron particles for superior radiotracer distribution, resulting in spectacular images.  Special kits for ventilator dependent patients are also available for this highly acclaimed system, designed exclusively for safety, reliability and performance.  Free trial, training materials and Appropriate Use Criteria are available.


Customers currently using the single tube Aero/Vent™ Plus are invited to experience the benefits of Aero/Vent™ Max or try the Aero/Vent™ Plus kit for ventilator dependent patients.  Please contact us for a free trial.


NOTE:  Aero/Vent™ Plus is such an exceptional product, a competitor made a low quality, knock-off kit.  Operating out of Marquette, Michigan, it utilizes Medi/Nuclear's® lead shield but is substantially inferior to Aero/Vent™ Plus in safety, quality, performance and image quality so its use is considered risky and is not recommended.  If you know of anyone with this product, please let us know and we'll gladly send a free trial of any genuine Medi'Nuclear® product.

Aero/Vent™ Max Airflow Diagram

 Aero/Vent Max Airflow Diagram

  • As a patient inhales, medication from the nebulizer moves through the top tube and into the mouthpiece.
  • When the patient exhales, the exhalation is directed through the bottom tube and into a HEPA filter.
  • During exhalation, air continues to flow through the nebulizer into the top tube.
  • When the next breath is taken, the patient immediately inhales the medication that has filled the top tube.
