Building on the successful features of the original Aero/Vent™, the redesigned Aero/Vent™ Jr produces images of unsurpassed quality. The nebulizer utilizes a revolutionary new design which not only produces the small particles needed to obtain good peripheral penetration, but eliminates nearly all particles which are the cause of unwanted tracheal deposits and “hot spots.” In fact, over 97% of the particles produced by the Aero/Vent™ Jr fall below 1 micron.
The Aero/Vent™ Jr Radioaerosol System is an easy to use radioaerosol system that enables the nuclear medicine department to perform a radioaerosol scan in a shorter period of time while providing the nuclear medicine clinician with an excellent image. The Aero/Vent™ Jr is a two tube system with a HEPA filter and a dosing time of only 1.5 – 2.5 minutes. This unit produces an excellent image in one minute with only 100k -150k counts. The recommend activity of the Tc99m-DTPA is 40 mCi in a maximum volume of 2 mL. The Aero/Vent™ Jr is also available with a bacteria filter which replaces the HEPA filter. The Aero/Vent™ Jr HEPA or Bacteria unit are also available with a mask. A Ventilator Kit is available for this lead shield.
The Aero/Vent™Jr Radioaerosol Lead Shield is available in two different models. One model attaches to an IV Pole which allows the unit to move around the nuclear medicine department or the hospital and takes up a minimal amount of space. The other model is a Table Top unit which can be moved around the department with our UV-203 Universal Mobile Cabinet. The Universal Mobile Cabinet has a storage area and a lead-lined compartment for storing the used radioactive kits during transport or decay.
