For Reference: Discontinued November 2014


The MiniElite Compressor System has been discontinued by Respironics. The updated InnoSpire Mini is a great alternative!

The SideStream Plus Reusable Nubulizer can be used to efficiently deliver most commonly prescribed aerosol medications, including suspensions such as budesonide. It is easy to use and provides fast, effective treatments.

The MiniElite's Lithium-Ion Battery Pack will operate the MiniElite compressor for up to 90 minutes between charges and recharges quickly (approximately 6 hours for a full charge). The 12V DC adapter enables the compressor to be powered by the "cigarette style" outlets found in most cars, trucks, boats, and recreational vehicles.

  • Easy action vertical inspiratory valve requires less pressure to open on inspiration
  • SideStream five jet hole design helps shorten treatment time
  • Modern handle design and angled mouthpiece provide for more comfortable treatment
  • Suitable for children and adults
  • No need to remove the valve when using a mask

  • Great nebulizer machine

    This nebulizer is compact but more powerful and quieter that my prior nebulizer machine. I love that I can use it anywhere. It came with a car charger as well.

  • It's OK, not great tho...

    This unit is a lot louder than I expected, but still not as loud as my old one. It vibrates a lot and will start moving around on a hard surface like a table top, so I put a folded-up towel under it to keep it still and cut the noise down a little. It's works just as good as my old dinosaur and takes up less space. I like the fact that there are 3 power sources: battery, car plug and regular outlet plug - so this way you never get stuck without power no matter what. I just got it, so I don't know how durable it is. I hope it lasts as long as the old one (which is still working). It works OK, but I'm not happy about the vibration/noise. I don't think I'd have bought this if I'd known.

  • Review of the Mini Elite Compressor Kit

    The Kit is every thing as advertized. I have rated the Kit as a 4 star since it takes longer to do a treatment then with the home compressor.

  • Easy and Quick

    Used this nebulizer a couple of times now on trips. It is easy to use, and delivers the meds quickly. Size is great and is easy to pack along with all the necessities...nebulizer cups, tubing, meds. I would recommend this nebulizer to anyone who wants convenience when they travel. It works well enough to be the nebulizer for home, also.
