Product Overview


The two-tube Insta/Vent™ Plus has it all!  As the upgraded Insta/Vent™, dosing can now be done in just 1-2 minutes and SPECT imaging can be performed.  Fine particles, of which almost half are nano-size, virtually eliminate tracheal deposition and 'hot spots', and provide outstanding radiotracer distribution and images of unsurpassed quality.  Insta/Vent™ Plus's unidirectional airflow puts an end to single tube breathing resistance, thereby assisting shallow breathers, enhancing compliance and improving throughput of critical patients.  Radioaerosol kits come complete with a choice of Safety Shield™ Mouthpiece, air-cushioned face mask or specially made for ventilator dependent patients.  The exclusive Insta/Vent™ Plus's conserving reservoir, internal airflow control mechanism, proprietary nebulizer, and unidirectional airflow provide results that can't be matched and make it a leader in the industry, and the recommendation of physicians, radiologists and nuclear technicians alike.  Free trial, training materials and Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) are available. 


Still available is the single tube Insta/Vent™.  Those customers using this product are encouraged to experience Insta/Vent™ Plus's rapid delivery or the special kits for ventilator dependent patents at no charge.  Contact us today for a free trial.

Insta/Vent™ Plus Airflow Diagram

Insta/Vent Airflow Diagram

  • As a patient inhales, medication from the nebulizer moves through the top tube and into the mouthpiece.
  • When the patient exhales, an internal airflow control mechanism closes and exhalation is directed through the bottom tube and into a HEPA filter.
  • During exhalation, air continues to flow through the nebulizer into a breathing bag, which acts as a reservoir to store aerosol that would normally be wasted during exhalation.
  • When the next breath is taken, the patient immediately inhales the medication that has filled the top tube and also the medication from the breathing bag.
